Six Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Men

Six Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Men
6 Symptoms

Do you think that your quality of life inevitably declines as you age? Think again!

Low testosterone (also called “Low-T”) is a condition in which the testicles do not produce enough of the male hormone testosterone that is necessary to maintain mental and physical health. While it is more common in men over 40, it can affect males at any age. Fortunately, it is treatable! Unfortunately, its symptoms are often overlooked or chalked up as "normal" conditions of aging. While there are many symptoms, these are some of the most common:


Fluctuations in testosterone levels can contribute to feelings of depression, anxiety, lack of motivation, and/or decreased confidence. Even if you have a history of depression and/or are currently being treated, a significant increase is a sign of a serious problem and should be treated as such.


Feeling overly tired and experiencing a significant decrease in energy is not necessarily a "given" as you age. It is likely a symptom of an underlying health condition and may be associated with low testosterone levels.


Loss of Muscle Mass:

Testosterone plays a role in maintaining muscle mass, so don't assume that your exercise routine - or lack of it - is to blame. A reduction in testosterone levels can decrease muscle strength and size. 

Increased Body Fat:

While a healthy diet is always important for your health, low testosterone levels can contribute to increased body fat, especially around the abdomen. 

Unusual Mood Changes:

 Low testosterone can cause increased irritability, sadness, anger, or other emotions without apparent reasons. If your co-workers, loved ones or even strangers suddenly annoy you more than usual, you may be experiencing “Low-T.”

Decreased Libido/Erectile Dysfunction:

A decrease in sexual arousal, stamina, and/or difficulty achieving or maintaining erections can be symptoms of low testosterone. 

All of these symptoms can also be caused by other health conditions, so it is important to consult with a physician before self-treating. Blood tests are necessary to find the root of your health concerns and determine the right course of treatment for you.
