While the body generally decreases the production of testosterone over time, it is possible for it to decrease to a level that causes negative side effects in men. When this happens, testosterone replacement therapy can help. At Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson, we offer testosterone replacement therapy to men who are experiencing negative symptoms associated with low testosterone. Here are some signs that you may have low testosterone levels:
If you are experiencing extreme fatigue, it could be due to low testosterone. If you are getting plenty of sleep but still finding it difficult to stay awake or motivate yourself to expend energy, you may be experiencing low T.
Testosterone is an integral part of your sex drive. While it is normal for libido to decrease as you age, men with low testosterone experience an extreme drop in sex drive.
Decreased semen production
Men with higher levels of testosterone produce more semen. When men experience lower levels of testosterone, there is a noticeable decrease in the volume of their semen.
Decreased muscle mass
Testosterone contributes to muscle production. If you have noticed a decrease in your muscle mass, or are finding it more difficult to build muscle, you may have low testosterone.
Increased body fat
In addition to a loss of muscle mass, you may also find that you are putting on body fat, particularly on your belly. This may be because testosterone plays a role in body fat storage.
Changes in mood
Men with low testosterone levels often experience changes in mood. Studies indicate that these men are more likely to have depression.
