To hear Dr. Timothy Sigman tell it, increasing men’s testosterone levels is the key to solving myriad health ills.

He formed Health Transformations with pharmacist Peter Del Toro in 2010 so he could help those who desperately needed a hormone boost.

No decision has been made about whether Del Toro, 40, will follow his former business partner to the witness stand. Both face nearly 40 charges in connection with what prosecutors say were illicit drug sales. Before agents shut down Del Toro’s Treasure Coast Specialty Pharmacy in Jensen Beach in June 2011, they said it was one of the nation’s largest steroid suppliers. In one six-month period, it filled 10,744 prescriptions for steroid and human-growth hormone, agents said.
