Signs of Low Testosterone

As the human body ages it not only changes physical appearance but also the internal functions start to express differences. Hormone production starts to deteriorate and our overall health starts to show decline. By the age 30, men are more likely to see symptoms of low testosterone and in turn struggle with various symptoms caused by low testosterone.

Testosterone is responsible for the stimulation of sperm production, muscle development, bone mass and also sexual desire. When there is a sudden drop of testosterone production a range of complications and symptoms may become apparent. In most cases, low T is mistaken for common aging; but low testosterone could in turn be the common cause of many aging health ailments.

What is Low Testosterone? 

When an individuals levels of testosterone drop below 300 nanograms per deciliter, they are commonly diagnosed with low testosterone. The medical term is Andropause, the male diagnosis comparable to menopause.

Unlike menopause, Andropause is a gradual decrease in testosterone throughout a males lifespan. In some instances the decrease is more rapid, increasing the symptom affects of low testosterone.

Common Symptoms of Low Testosterone 

When an individual is trying to determine if they are struggling with common aging or low testosterone, there are several warning signs to look for. The following are signs and common symptoms one could experience with low testosterone:

Low sex drive – testosterone is the key player when it comes to a males libido. The desire to participate in intercourse decreases and in some instances it becomes more difficult for the male to achieve an orgasm.

Erectile dysfunction – even though testosterone doesn’t create an erection on its own, it does stimulate the overall sex drive. When sexual stimulators stop producing nitric oxide that triggers erection, low testosterone becomes linked to erectile dysfunction. Low semen levels also can be a counterpart of erectile dysfunction and low T.

Low energy/fatigue – those struggling with low testosterone have reported repeatedly they experience extreme fatigue and a decrease in energy levels; even when sufficient sleep was being acquired.

Muscle mass loss – testosterone plays a major role in the development and strengthening of muscle. Low T becomes apparent when an individual is experiencing a decrease in muscle mass; especially in arms, chest and legs. Rebuilding muscle mass also becomes more complicated over time.

Increase in body fat mass – men with low testosterone are now not only struggling with low muscle mass, but the increase in body fat. There is no clear reason as to why the decrease in testosterone causes weight gain, but it continues to be a common symptom within men with low T.

  • Emotional complications (ie. mood swings, depression, irritability, sadness, lack of focus)
  • Hair loss
  • Decrease in bone mass
  • Genital numbness
  • Shrinkage
