The powerful hormone testosterone, mainly produced in the testicles, drives many physical and mental processes for males even before they’re born. Testosterone, necessary for the development of male sex organs, increases throughout childhood and puberty to stimulate the growth of body hair, build bone mass and muscles, deepen the voice, help produce red blood cells, and ramp up sex drive and sperm production for reproductive purposes. Testosterone levels peak at about age 18, however.
By the time a man reaches age 30, testosterone levels begin to decrease at a rate of about 1% a year. Many men fear the loss of testosterone as they age and begin to see signs of Low T that significantly impact their lives.
Symptoms of low testosterone include:
- Loss of sex drive
- Difficulty maintaining an erection
- Low level of seminal fluid
- Decrease in energy
- Loss of confidence
- Reduced muscle mass
- Fat gain in the midsection
- Gynecomastia (male breasts)
- Shrinkage of testicles
- Loss of hair on scalp
Medical Conditions Associated With Low T
Many serious medical conditions have been linked to low testosterone levels in men. While there may be no direct cause and effect link between testosterone loss and some disease processes, many males diagnosed with diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, and high blood pressure, also test positive for low testosterone. Osteoporosis, which weakens the bones, is also associated with low testosterone levels in men.
