The Most Common Symptoms of Low Testosterone
Posted: November 5, 2014
Doctors are beginning to realize that, much like menopause in women, men also experience hormonal changes as they age. Declining testosterone levels are actually a pretty routine occurrence. It often begins around the age of 30 and continues as men get older.
Many men may not even realize their testosterone levels are low, as their symptoms may be slight, or they may not link their symptoms to the hormone. Other symptoms are more prevalent and hinder normal, everyday functioning. Here are the main symptoms that cause men to seek help for low testosterone:
Weakness and Fatigue
These two symptoms may seem like a normal part of aging. They cause you to feel sluggish and unsteady. You may find yourself unable to complete tasks that were once easily accomplished, because the muscles in your body just don’t seem to have their usual vigor or toughness.
Fatigue is not an uncommon problem, especially for someone who leads a busy lifestyle, as most do. But low testosterone causes you to be tired all of the time, no matter how much sleep or rest you get. Your energy level just seems to remain consistently low. Weakness and fatigue can give you an overall sense of being debilitated or unwell.
The other symptom that most commonly drives men to seek treatment is one of the most well-known. Low testosterone often causes a low sex drive and can lead to embarrassing situations in the bedroom. The inability to take interest in your partner is one of the biggest reasons that many suspect low testosterone, because this symptom often comes completely out of left field for most men. If your desire has expired, either suddenly or over a period of time, a lack of testosterone may be to blame.
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, it is a good idea to check your testosterone level. A simple blood test is all it takes, and you will know on your fist visit if you are a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy. Find your nearest Low T Center, or make an appointment online.
