Signs and Symptoms of Low T in Men

Have you noticed some significant changes in your energy levels, sexual desire, or body composition? Even if you work out regularly or try to stay active, you will likely notice some significant emotional and physical changes if your testosterone levels have dropped. 

That’s because testosterone plays a starring role in the influence of fat distribution, bone density, and red blood cell production. It’s also a critical factor in building muscle and bone mass, producing sperm, and driving sexual desire and function.

Nearly 40 percent of men over 45 have abnormally Low Testosterone levels. Testosterone is a male sex hormone important for sexual and reproductive development. In fact, the National Institutes of Health consider it the most important male hormone.

What are the symptoms of Low T?

Testosterone naturally decreases in males as they age. However, Low Testosterone may affect specific physical characteristics like:

Low Testosterone may cause mental or emotional changes as well, which include:

Other signs and symptoms of Low Testosterone include:

  • Sleep Problems or Sleep apnea – If you have this condition, and if it gets worse, you could have Low T.
  • Congestive heart failure – Progressive congestive heart failure could indicate Low T.

What is the difference between Low Testosterone and hypogonadism?

It is essential to determine if Low Testosterone is due to the decline associated with aging or hypogonadism in older men. Hypogonadism is a dysfunction of the testicles in which the body cannot produce the right amount of testosterone. This condition can be present from birth but may not show up until puberty. It is commonly due to a problem with the testicles or the pituitary gland that controls the testicles.

Why is testosterone important?

Testosterone plays a vital role throughout a male’s entire lifetime. This hormone develops male sex organs before birth and specific characteristics at puberty like voice deepening, increased penis and testes size, and facial hair growth. Testosterone is essential for libido, sperm production, red blood cell production, and muscle maintenance in adulthood. For these reasons and more, testosterone is considered a necessary hormone for men’s overall health and well-being.
