Low Testosterone Levels
What is testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone that all humans have, although men have much higher levels than women. It starts to form in your body during puberty and decreases gradually around the age of 30. Testosterone is more than just a sex hormone though, as it helps with sperm production, muscle mass, fat distribution and red blood cell production.
Low testosterone can affect anybody, but is more common in men aged 45 and older. Low testosterone can be caused by any number of things, such as obesity, illness, medications, inflammatory diseases, pituitary diseases, and primarily, underactive testes.
How to tell if you have low testosterone
Low testosterone may present with a number of different symptoms. Because it isn’t a visible condition, many people may not be aware they have a problem. In adulthood, some of the common signs may include:
• Lack of energy
• Low muscle mass
• Decreased sex drive
• Hair loss or slow hair growth
• Erectile dysfunction
If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s possible that your body isn’t producing enough testosterone. In addition to those listed above, low testosterone levels can also have an emotional impact. Because testosterone is a hormone affecting so much of our body’s function, the effects can be far-reaching. Low testosterone can lead to sleep difficulties, lack of sexual function and even mental health concerns such as depression and difficulty concentrating.
