Common Signs of Low Testosterone in Men

testosterone replacement therapy

Men are always associated with testosterone hormone. However, it is essential to note that women produce one-tenth to one-twentieth of the amount of testosterone as men. The hormone is responsible for developing features such as body and facial hair, muscle strength, deeper voice, and sperm production in men. The testosterone hormone is vital in male sexual development and functionality, and the levels decrease with age. Below are the signs of low testosterone in men:

Erectile Dysfunction

Difficulty to have or maintain an erection is associated with low testosterone. The hormone is responsible for penile tissue stimulation resulting in an erection. If the hormone level is low, getting an erection can prove a problem. It is advised to consider testosterone replacement therapy as a treatment for erectile dysfunction.

Reduced Bone and Body Mass

For effective production of bone tissues and maintenance of bone volume, the testosterone hormone is needed. When the volume reduces, the bones become more susceptible to fractures and injuries. Low testosterone also causes a decrease in body mass.

Low Amount of Semen

The majority of the male ejaculate is made up of semen. Sperm can move with the help of semen during ejaculation. When testosterone hormone level is lower, the production of semen reduces, and the result is trouble with fertility. Solving this problem dictates that a man should consider testosterone replacement therapy.

Irritability and Sleeping Difficulty

A man with low testosterone hormone is easily irritated and finds it hard to sleep. Sleep apnea can be the result of low testosterone levels in a man. Seeking early medical attention is vital before such a disorder becomes severe.

Fatigue and Decreased Energy Level

Low energy levels and fatigue are among the common signs of low testosterone levels in a man. The decreased energy level is usually accompanied by an increase in body fat, leading to obesity if control measures are not put in place.

In many cases, the symptoms of low testosterone hormone go unnoticed. Regular medical checkups help with the diagnosis of low testosterone. See a doctor as soon as any of the above signs and symptoms are identified. The doctor will perform a physical evaluation and review the symptoms the patient portrays, and advise accordingly. Treatment procedures such as testosterone replacement therapy have proven effective in solving the problem and increase sexual development and performance in men.
