& Guide

Here is a Checklist to see of your possible symptoms.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone produced by the body.It affects a man’s appearance and sexual development. It stimulates sperm production as well as a man’s sex drive. It also helps build muscle and bone mass.

Testosterone often decreases with age. According to theAmerican Urological Association, about 20% of men older than 60 years have low testosterone. This number increases slightly with passing years.

Men will likely experience a variety of symptoms if testosterone decreases more than it should. Low testosterone, or low T, is diagnosed when levels fall below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).

A normal testosterone range is usually 300 to 1,000 ng/dL, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A blood test is used to determine your level of testosterone.

A variety of symptoms can occur if testosterone drops below normal. Signs of low T can be subtle. Here are some signs and symptoms of low testosterone in men.

1. Low Libido

Testosterone plays a key role in libido (sex drive) in men. Some men experience a decline in sex drive as they age. However, someone with low T will likely experience a more drastic drop in their sexual desire.

2. Fatigue

Men with low T often report a decrease in energy level. If you’re tired or worn out constantly, even with getting adequate sleep, low T could be the culprit.

3. Loss of muscle mass

Because testosterone’s role in building muscle, men with low testosterone might notice a loss in muscle mass or difficulty gaining muscle.

4. Increased body fat

Men with low T can also experience a body fat increase. They sometimes also develop enlarged breast tissue. This is thought to occur due to atestosterone and estrogen imbalance.

5. Decreased bone mass

The thinning of bone mass, or osteoporosis is a condition some men with low T can experience. Testosterone can help strengthen bones. Low T can cause men to have a lower bone volume and become more likely to incur bone fractures.

6. Mood changes

Since testosterone can trigger many physical processes in the body, it can also affect mood and mental capacity. Irritability, lack of motivation and even anxiety and depression have been reported.

Outlook

Men typically experience a gradual decrease of testosterone levels over time. The older you are, the higher the likelihood you will experience lower testosterone. Testosterone levels below 300 ng/dL may experience some level of low T symptoms.
