Testosterone is a natural hormone responsible for the normal growth and development of certain male organs and for the maintenance of other masculine traits. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes (the reproductive glands that also produce sperm) and regulated by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. With low testosterone levels, men can experience a decrease in energy and libido, an increase in body fat, and emotional changes.

How Does Low Testosterone Affect Men? — A decrease in testosterone levels is to be expected as men age. Other factors can also contribute to low T, including chronic health issues such as diabetes or obesity, medications such as corticosteroids or trauma. Our comprehensive health assessment tests for low testosterone levels as well as a multitude of other related issues and can be treated with customized, testosterone replacement therapy treatment plans.

How Common Is Low Testosterone? — It’s hard to pin down an exact number for exactly how common testosterone deficiency is among men. The condition becomes drastically more common as men age, and it’s estimated that as many as 40% of older men have low testosterone.

What is low-T, and how do I find out if I have it?

Low-T is also known as hypogonadism, which happens when a man does not have enough testosterone in his body. Testosterone is the sex hormone that helps boys grow into men. This hormone is key during puberty and in the development of male physical features. Testosterone levels can affect men’s sex drive, erections, mood, muscle mass and bone density. Testosterone is also needed for normal sperm production.
You may have low-T if you have the following problems:

  • reduced sex drive
  • less frequent sexual activities
  • fewer and weaker erections
  • less energy
  • depressed mood
  • less muscle mass and strength
  • more body fat
  • anemia (low iron)
  • loss of bone strength.

If you think you may have low-T, it is important to see a doctor, who will examine you and evaluate your health history. A blood test can measure your testosterone levels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Testosterone replacement therapy refers to a variety of prescription drugs that can increase a man's testosterone levels.

Testosterone is a critical hormone for men of all ages. During puberty, it plays a key role in a young man's sexual development and physical growth. Testosterone is responsible for the development of a man's sex organs and his sex drive or libido. It's also responsible for a young man's growing physical strength, energy, and endurance. Testosterone is closely tied to masculinity. For adult men, testosterone helps maintain bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength, muscle mass, red blood cell production, sex drive, and sperm production. As men age, testosterone production naturally begins to decrease. This drop off normally begins around the age of thirty and many men begin to notice the effects after the age of forty.
If you are having one or more of the symptoms of low-T, it is important to make sure you have low-T and not another condition. Many of the symptoms for low-T can be the result of other health problems. For example, erectile dysfunction (ED) may be caused by poor cardiovascular health instead of low-T. TRT can help men with low-T, but you should not be taking TRT if you do not have low levels of testosterone. Before you take TRT, a doctor who is skilled in diagnosing low-T should examine you carefully. Your doctor should not prescribe TRT without taking an in-depth health history, giving you a physical exam and performing blood tests. Your doctor should talk to you about the possible benefits, side effects and risks before you start taking TRT. You and your doctor can then decide whether TRT is right for you.
