Understanding Low Testosterone (Low T)

Understanding Low Testosterone (Low T)

Beginning in their late twenties, men start to experience a gradual decrease in testosterone production. By middle age, the effects of this change are evident. Having reached what is referred to as andropause, they begin having a variety of symptoms including decreased libido, hair loss, weight gain, and irritability. These issues are both disappointing to men and frustrating in that they believe there is nothing that can be done about their low testosterone level (or low T).

The Consequences of Unresolved Low T

Too often, the symptoms of low T are simply dismissed as signs of normal aging. While they are caused by the decrease in testosterone production that all men experience, they are not issues that are unavoidable or untreatable. On the contrary. Low T can be treated, and therapy can reduce or eliminate symptoms that include:

  • Increased body fat
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Low energy
  • Decreased bone density
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Mood swings
  • Depression and irritability
  • Mental “fog”
  • Hair loss
  • Erectile dysfunction

In some cases, symptoms of low T are believed to be caused by another condition. Consequently, it is important to understand how proper hormonal balance supports your health and wellness. It is also important to recognize that choosing to simply accept low T as inevitable may increase your risk of certain medical conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease.
