4 Signs You Are Low on Testosterone

Feeling off lately? Low testosterone could be to blame. Testosterone is an important hormone that impacts energy, strength, focus, libido, and more. As you age, it's common for testosterone levels to decline. According to the National Library of Medicine, the ages of 50 to 59 are when women are most likely to need testosterone replacement therapy. However, low testosterone can happen at any age and can greatly reduce your vitality and overall well-being if left untreated. Here are some of the signs you may be low on testosterone and may need testosterone replacement therapy.

1. You're Always Exhausted

Constant fatigue, even after a full night's rest, is one of the most common symptoms that your testosterone is low. Testosterone provides energy by supporting muscle growth, bone density, red blood cell production, and much more. When levels are low, it takes a major hit on your get-up-and-go. No matter how much rest, relaxation, or coffee you get, you still feel drained.

2. You're Gaining Weight

Have you been noticing weight gain around your midsection that you just can't get off? That protruding belly could stem from sinking testosterone. Testosterone helps metabolize fat while estrogen increases fat storage around the abdomen. When testosterone dips too low, it throws this balance out of whack. Excess belly fat and weight gain resist even your most diligent efforts.

3. Your Libido Vanishes

A lagging libido can also signal testosterone trouble. Testosterone is intrinsic to sex drive and sexual function for both men and women. Without adequate levels, you may lose interest in sex, struggle with arousal and performance, and no longer daydream about intimacy. Your overall motivation and zest for life may decline too.

4. Your Memory and Focus Falter

If you find yourself forgetting appointments, birthdays, and other important information, low testosterone may contribute. In addition to physical symptoms, testosterone also impacts cognition and mental sharpness. Studies link healthy testosterone to memory, focus, concentration, verbal fluency, and processing speed. As levels decline, you may feel like your mind is stuck in a fog.

If one or more of those scenarios sounds familiar, getting your testosterone levels checked is a smart next step. You can start with an appointment to discuss your symptoms, medical history, and ask any other questions with a healthcare provider. They may order bloodwork to measure your testosterone levels along with other relevant hormones. If testosterone deficiency is confirmed, testosterone replacement therapy can likely help get your levels back on track. Reach out to Keystone Medical Wellness today to schedule an appointment.
