Low T symptoms
People asking the question, “Is it Low T?” always wonder what are the symptoms. Here a a list of just some of the symptoms that can affect you when you have Low T or Low Testosterone.
1) Muscle loss –Medically termed “atrophy”, Muscle atrophy occurs faster in men who are less physically active prior to their 50’s. Your protein intake also plays a large role in the retention of a person’s muscle by the time he ages to his late 40’s. Testosterone is also a muscle building hormone. That’s why athletes who look forward to getting more muscles take in Testosterone supplements to expedite increase in muscle mass.
2) Reduced Quality of life – Basically this means your overall happiness. A person with low Testosterone levels will experience a lack of energy. This will effect many aspects of your life making simple task tedious and exertive task seem almost impossible (Sports etc..) Men in their 50’ are still urged to at least get 2-3 hours week of exercise for cardiovascular health and to ward off obesity.
3) Decreased Sexi Drive – As well as a declining libido, inadequate Testosterone levels will also cause weak erections. Some men in their 50’s might find it easy to get an erection but will eventually find it difficult to maintain throughout intercourse. Weak erections are due to the inability of the penis to hold the blood inside its tissues. This capability loosens up with age and Testosterone inadequacy.
4) Infertility – Women with low Testosterone levels will have ovarian atrophy. This decline n the function of the female ovary render is unable to produce healthy egg cells which are needed by the sperm to produce a successful conception.
5) Mood Swings – Your mood is affected by the quality of sleep you get. Low levels of Testosterone, usually causes poor sleep in men and women. Women encounter hot flushes and men experience night sweats which affect the level of comfort while sleeping.
6) Depression – Because of the body’s capability to perform tasks , you may feel inferior in comparison to what your previous self could do. If you don’t feel like you once did, depression may set in. If you feel this symptom in particular, please contact your Primary Care Facility or visit JoyRich Health Care Centers for a FREE CONSULTATION.

7) Osteoporosis – Testosterone plays a large role in keeping the bones of our body solid and intact. Once Testosterone therapy falls below normal levels, our bodies frame soon follows.
