Testosterone is a hormone found in the male testicles, female ovaries and adrenal glands. For men, testosterone is like a fuel that drives libido, fertility, bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass and strength, as well as the production of red blood cells. If left untreated, low testosterone (T) can contribute to a number of health conditions including bone loss and an increased risk for heart disease.
What causes Low T?
Low T can have a number of potential causes, such as:
- Hypogonadism (inadequate testicular production of testosterone)
- Type 2 diabetes
- Chronic disease of the liver or kidneys
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (or other lung diseases)
- Disorders of the pituitary gland
- Testicular injury
- Radiation or chemotherapy treatment
Why is Low T dangerous for men?
Some men may experience unnaturally Low T levels, which may cause or contribute to a number of disruptive physical and psychological health conditions, such as:
- Decreased libido or loss of interest in sex
- Erectile dysfunction
- Poor sleep
- Disinterest or lack of motivation
- Mood changes
- Muscle weakness or loss of muscle mass
- Reduction in energy levels
- Memory or concentration problems
- Weight gain
- High cholesterol
