Many things change as you age, and health issues like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and even Low T can take center stage. Suddenly you have to start watching your carbs and counting calories. You have to make more time for exercise, because your “usual workout” doesn’t seem to help anymore. Perhaps you are just feeling constantly fatigued or you are experiencing a flatlining sex drive.
The symptoms of low testosterone are many, but, so are the benefits. The problem is that these issues are often overlooked by primary care providers at annual physicals or sick visits. This is where a center specializing in Low T treatment can be a great asset.
When men get older, their bodies naturally produce less testosterone. This should happen gradually, however, disease, medications, bad habits, and chemical or environmental exposures have changed this natural, slow course into a rapid and downward spiral. Many men are experiencing low levels in their thirties, and by forty it is estimated that roughly half of men suffer from low testosterone symptoms such as:
Energy Loss – Maybe you are used to being on the go all the time, but you may find yourself becoming more easily tired. Men with Low T might also realize that they are using more stimulants than they previously have, including coffee.
Depression – Although we usually characterize depression with sadness, it can often manifest in men as unusual and/or unreasonable anger and aggression where aggressiveness was previously not part of his personality.
Hair Loss – Some men will naturally lose their body hair, but this often only begins happening as testosterone production slows. You may notice a thinning of hair on other parts of your body as well, including your eyebrows.
Loss of Muscle and Weight Gain – Men with Low T might notice that they’ve put on a few pounds even though they haven’t changed their diet or exercise regimens. You might also notice that your muscle definition may be slowly disappearing.
Sexual Dysfunction – Low T can cause men to have lower sex drives as well as trouble achieving and maintaining erections. It can also make achieving orgasm difficult.

For many men, Low T and its symptoms can take over their lives. Some men feel that they are losing their masculinity, others see these symptoms as proof of their own mortality – a biological “midlife crisis.”
Some men, not recognizing these symptoms for what they are, may begin to overcompensate. Some buy fancy sports cars, some hit the gym, often with little success.
