Your Tuesday morning health roundup:

Testosterone test: Adding testosterone to Viagra does not lead to better erections or otherwise improve sexual functioning in men with low testosterone, a new study shows. Viagra alone worked just as well as Viagra plus testosterone gel for the men in the study. Testosterone may have other benefits for such men, though, and individual results may vary, doctors say.

Sandy and health: The health fallout from Superstorm Sandy is growing, with health care facilities in hard hit areas seeing everything from muscle strain (from long days of clean up) to carbon monoxide poisoning (from misused generators) to chronic coughing (which could be caused by exposure to mold and dust in damaged buildings), the New York Times reports.

Talking stress: Has your doctor asked you about managing stress lately? Probably not, if a new study is any indication. Just 3% of visits to primary care doctors included a talk about stress, even though stress contributes to many major health problems, researchers found. (NBC News)

Today's talker: Today's standard playgrounds may be safer than those of the past, but they also are boring, critics say. That's why more challenging playground features are catching on around the country, the Wall Street Journal reports. These zip lines, climbing nets, spiral slides and multi-user swings give kids some added thrills but are safe -- or at least safe enough, designers say.
