6 Warning Signs You May Be Suffering From Low T
Posted: November 5, 2014
Age is inevitable, and as we grasp onto our youth, our body continues to remind us that we aren’t as young as we once were.
We can see or feel the signs of aging in our skin, hair, and energy levels, but there are other, less obvious signs. In men, the effects of aging can be detrimental to our health, if we are unaware of the changes. One such issue is low testosterone, or low T.
It’s important to familiarize yourself with the signs of low testosterone, so you can take preventive measures to correct it:
Fatigue. Pay attention to your energy levels and daily lifestyle. Going to the gym or working a long day can cause anyone to feel sluggish. But if you feel fatigued even without doing anything out of the ordinary, you may be suffering from low T.
Lack of energy. This goes along with feeling fatigued. Testosterone gives men the energy and drive to get things done efficiently. Think about your energy levels, and make sure they have been consistent with your lifestyle.
Irritability. Our everyday lives can cause us to feel stressed or irritated, but low levels of testosterone can cause an irrational and inexplicable irritability. Ask family and friends if they have noticed you have been more moody lately.
Lack of muscle mass. One of the more obvious signs of low T is a loss in muscle mass. If you have noticed a change in both the physical appearance of your muscle as well as your strength, this could be a sign that your testosterone levels are dropping.
Low fluid level. Testosterone helps various parts of the male anatomy create and release sperm. These parts include seminal vesicles, testicles, and prostate. If you are experiencing low testosterone levels, your sperm levels also could be suffering.
Genital numbness. Testosterone can help excite all parts of the body, including the genitals. But men suffering from low T often experience a numb feeling below the belt.
What Are Low T Treatment Options?
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) enables men suffering from low T to increase their testosterone levels over time. If the signs above ring true for you, it’s time to visit a Low T Center to get your numbers checked.
