If you’re like most men in the United States, then you probably have a vague understanding of low testosterone and the symptoms commonly experienced by men with this condition. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with an in-depth explanation of the most common low testosterone symptoms. While many of these symptoms can be explained by other conditions, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your doctor to discuss the causes. Read on to learn more about the symptoms of low testosterone, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson today to schedule an appointment for testosterone replacement therapy.
The Main Symptoms of Low Testosterone
One of the most common symptoms of low testosterone is low libido (reduced sex drive). If you find that you’re no longer as interested in sex as you used to be, or if you find it difficult to achieve and maintain an erection, your testosterone levels may be to blame.
Many men understandably find it difficult to bring these symptoms to their doctor’s attention, but they’re often some of the most common symptoms in men with low testosterone levels. Many of the men who begin our testosterone replacement therapy program see this symptom improve within three to four weeks.
Are you finding it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep? Low testosterone levels are known to contribute to insomnia and marked changes in sleep patterns. Poor sleep can cause your testosterone levels to decrease even further, so don’t wait to speak with a doctor if you’re concerned about your sleep.
Fatigue and Decreased Energy
If you’re finding it difficult to find the motivation to do chores on the weekend, or if you’re finding it difficult to concentrate at work, your testosterone levels may be to blame. Low testosterone is known to cause symptoms similar to chronic fatigue, making it extremely difficult to maintain an active and productive lifestyle.
One of testosterone’s main functions is to shape and maintain the male body, and testosterone is a crucial component of muscle maintenance and development. It’s completely normal for men to lose strength and muscle mass as they age; in fact, men over the age of 60 can expect their muscle loss to double every ten years. However, low testosterone levels can cause a significant decrease in muscle mass and muscle endurance in men of all ages.
If you’re finding it difficult to participate in activities that you once found easy due to muscle exhaustion and overall fatigue, then you should consider testosterone replacement therapy as a solution.
