What is Low Testosterone?

Have you ever wondered what could be causing it?

The hormone testosterone, also known as "T", is naturally made by the body and is found in both men and women. A man's T is mainly made in the testicles, but circulates in the blood to be supplied to targeted issues in order to help develop and maintain secondary sex characteristics and reproductive functions.

Low T and Symptoms
Low T is a medical condition that is treatable, which occurs when a man doesn’t produce enough testosterone. The effects of low T may go unnoticed as some men have symptoms without recognizing them, and may be attributed to similarities of symptoms to normal changes that occur with aging. It is estimated that less than two-thirds of men with low T report symptoms. Some symptoms of low T include: mood problems, fatigue, sleep disturbances, decreased sex drive, increase in body fat, and decrease in bone density.

It is best for men who have symptoms of low T to talk to their doctor during a routine checkup and ask if a blood test for serum T or total T is appropriate. It is especially important that men with diabetes ask their doctor if they should be tested for low T. According to the Endocrine Society's clinical guidelines men with type 2 diabetes should have their testosterone levels checked periodically.

Are there options?
Remember, your doctor can decide if you need a blood test for T. The more information you provide will help determine what's best for you, since there are a number of treatment alternatives for men who have low T.
