What Do Low Libido and Low T Have in Common?

Testosterone (T) plays a key role in a man’s physical appearance and sexual development, so if you suffer from Low T, you may experience a range of symptoms, including low libido. While some men maintain sexual desire at relatively Low Testosterone levels, others may experience a negative effect on their libido with smaller fluctuations.

What are the problems and factors caused by Low T and low libido in men?

Both low libido and Low T can be caused by a number of factors that disrupt men’s lives, including:

  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep deprivation

What are potential causes of Low T in men?

Low T can have a number of potential causes, such as:

  • Hypogonadism (inadequate production of testosterone)
  • Obesity
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Chronic liver or kidney disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Testicular injury
  • Radiation or chemotherapy
  • Age

What are the treatment options for Low T?

Treatment options for low libido and Low T include:

  • Hormone replacement therapy
    At SynergenX, we tailor our Low T treatments to each man’s individual needs and vary the dose as his testosterone levels rise and fall.
  • BoostEREX
    BoostEREX is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment for erectile dysfunction that uses low-intensity shockwave pulses to rejuvenate penile blood vessels and release growth factors that help new blood vessels grow.

How can men help lower their risk for Low T and low libido?

There are many things you can do to help lower your risk of Low T, like:

  • Exercise regularly
    Sedentary men are more likely to have lower testosterone levels. Weight training can stimulate testosterone production.
  • Lose excess weight
    Overweight men are more likely to have lower testosterone levels.
  • Sleep between 7-8 hours each night
    Sleep deprivation has negative effects on your hormones.
  • Try vitamin D and zinc supplements
    Zinc deficiency has been linked to hypogonadism and vitamin D has shown to increase testosterone levels in men.
