What are the effects of low testosterone?

When your body does not produce enough testosterone or not enough to support your body’s needs,  or when your levels are lower than what the medical community considers to be healthy for your age, it is referred to as low testosterone. Generally, doctors like to see about 300 to 900 nanograms of testosterone per deciliter.

Low T symptoms are often the result of a sexual or another health issue. Certain medical conditions can also result in low testosterone. The levels of testosterone in a man’s body help promote good sexual health and also plays a role in bone density and muscle development. Low T can impact a man’s health in many ways, not just their sexual activity. Many complications can occur if this condition is left untreated. Unlike the flu or strep throat, active medical intervention is needed as Low T will not improve over time on its own.

 What are the symptoms of Low Testosterone?

Many symptoms could indicate low testosterone, which is why it is crucial to get tested by our specialists at American Male Medical. Some of the more common signs of Low Testosterone include:

  • Muscle Loss
  • Hair Loss
  • Weight Gain
  • Irritable Male Syndrome
  • Fatigue and decreased energy levels
  • Memory Loss
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Depression

What is the cause of my low testosterone?

As your body ages, it is natural for it to produce less and less testosterone. Sometimes lower testosterone does not cause any symptoms that interfere with your daily life. However, with some men, their sexual health can be severely impacted by Low T. Some medical conditions and injuries can also result in lowered testosterone.

How do you diagnose low testosterone in men?

All we need to do at American Male Medical is to conduct a simple blood test to diagnose you for low testosterone.
