Sluggishness, low sex drive, weight gain … you may be experiencing some of the symptoms of low testosterone (Low T), but is it Low T? How can you know for sure?
Testing for Low T: What it may involve
There are several ways to gauge the levels of your testosterone, so your doctor knows exactly how to restore them back to a normal range:
- Blood test – This can show your testosterone level. The normal range is 350 ng/dL to 1,000 ng/dL, however, testosterone levels fluctuate throughout the day. They are typically highest in the morning.
- Physical exam – Your doctor will examine your body for signs of low testosterone levels. He or she will:
- Take note of the amount of body hair you have.
- Look for lumps in your testes and scrotum.
- Gauge your peripheral vision (loss of peripheral vision may indicate the presence of a pituitary tumor, which can cause low testosterone levels).
- Medical history – The doctor may review both your medical history, and your family’s. Be ready to talk about your current symptoms in order to give him or her a more complete picture of the effects low testosterone is having on you. The doctor may want to know about:
- Your sex drive
- If you’ve experienced erectile dysfunction or impotence
- Any current or past illnesses
- Any genetic conditions in your family
