Are you Low on Testosterone?
Lack of Energy
Everyone gets tired occasionally, but prolonged, continuous fatigue at any age is not normal. Prolonged fatigue can affect day-to-day activities through performance and attitude. Have you noticed that you no longer enjoy some of your favorite activities due to a lack of energy? Low energy was once considering a normal sign of aging, however more and more doctors are recognizing this is a significant symptom of Low T.
This is topic not often discussed, however it is important to know it may be no fault of your own. By age 40, most men experience weak erections at some point in their lives. The good news is, weak erections are treatable. There are multiple factors but Low T could definitely be one. The first step is diagnosing the cause of the problem. Your symptom should not be ignored due to the possibility of serious health conditions.
If Low Testosterone levels are present it can cause a decrease in libido. A change in a man’s sex drive not only affects him, it impacts his relationship with his partner as well, and that’s a touchy subject for a lot of guys. Regaining your sex drive will make your life more enjoyable, put some pep in your step, and improve your relationship with your partner.
Decreased muscle & strength
Have you noticed that the strength you once had is fading? Does lifting heavy objects seem to be getting harder? Maybe you’re not working out as much as you used to but there may be another explanation. Studies show that as testosterone levels decrease, so does muscle mass. In a recent study, men, who used testosterone replacement for six months to bring testosterone levels into the “normal” ranges, experienced an increase in muscle mass by 2.5 pounds.
irritability & depression
You’re feeling bad and there’s no significant explanation for your mood. Your day-to-day life is going great but you can’t shake that feeling that has you “down”. Your brain has a multitude of cells that react as testosterone receptors; the lower the levels of testosterone going to your brain can affect your mood. Studies show when testosterone replacement therapy was used to bring hormone levels back into balance, men’s moods improved and became lighter by 34%.
The more difficulty a man has sleeping, the more likely his testosterone will drop. A study done in 2011, found that a single week of sleep loss lowered testosterone levels by as much as 15% in a group of healthy, young men. Poor sleep patterns lower testosterone and low testosterone can lead to poor sleep. If you improve your testosterone levels, your quality of sleep will also improve.
