Common Low Testosterone Effects You Might Be Suffering From

One of the greatest difficulties with diagnosing low testosterone is that low testosterone effects can vary so widely—like any medical condition, effects and symptoms strike individuals differently.

If you think you’re suffering from low testosterone, you probably have specific symptoms. Sharing those symptoms with your medical care provider is the first step towards a possible diagnosis.

Here are some of the more common low testosterone effects:

Common Low Testosterone Effects

Although the symptoms of low testosterone are different for everybody, there are a few common symptoms that apply broadly. These symptoms can apply to both men and women—here’s a list of just some possible low testosterone effects:

  • Having a decreased sex drive
  • Having little energy
  • Losing strength or endurance
  • Losing height
  • Not enjoying life like you used to
  • Feeling sad or depressed
  • Feeling grumpy or irritable
  • Falling asleep after dinner
  • Feeling less productive at work

These effects aren’t just limited to men; women can also experience them. One of the primary ways we decide whether you suffer from low testosterone is checking symptoms. However, we also do blood tests to see your specific testosterone levels.

If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with common low testosterone effects and you have testosterone levels below the normal range, then treatment may be indicated.

Treatment For The Unique Low Testosterone Effects You’re Feeling

While testosterone replacement therapy can come in a wide variety of forms, there is only one method that consistently produces results—weekly injections.

By results, we mean a reduction in symptoms. It does you no good to get your testosterone levels back up to some arbitrary number. While these numbers are important guidelines, they’re just that—guides. They’re not meant to limit treatment if your symptoms aren’t improving.

Injections are superior to all other forms of treatment for a variety of reasons. To learn more about why injections simply work better than pellets or topicals, watch our video below.

The Most Effective Testosterone Replacement Options On The Market

What makes injections so superior? In a word—control. Injections allow your clinician to control the amount of testosterone you receive precisely.

When titrating to symptoms, while using The Endocrine Society’s guidelines as a standard, we can find the perfect level of testosterone that’s right for you. Every human body is different, and a normal level for you might not be normal for the next person.

If the low testosterone effects you’ve been experiencing aren’t going away, then then your treatment can be easily adjusted by changing the amount in the injection.
