Low Testosterone basics:

As we get older, our Testosterone level gets lower. If it gets too low, it can start causing problems:

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) and lack
    of interest in sex
  • Reduction in testicle size, muscle mass,
    and bone density
  • Reduced overall energy
  • Depressed mood and loss of
    concentration
  • Other symptoms like: disturbed sleep
    patterns, less body hair, and hot flashes

The Facts of symptoms of low Testosterone:

“Hypogonadism” is a medical term which describes a diminished functional activity of the gonads – the testes and ovaries in males and females, respectively – that may result in diminishedsex hormone biosynthesis and impaired gamete production and/or regulation. In layman’s terms, it is sometimes called “interrupted stage 1 puberty”. Low androgen (e.g., Testosterone) levels are referred to as hyperandrogenism and low estrogen (e.g., estradiol) as hypoestrogenism, and may occur as symptoms of hypogonadism in both sexes, but are generally only diagnosed in males and females respectively. Other hormones produced by the gonads which may be decreased by hypogonadism include progesterone, DHEA, anti-Müllerian hormone,activin, and inhibin. Spermatogenesis and ovulation in males and females, respectively, may be impaired by hypogonadism, which, depending on the degree of severity, may result in partial or complete infertility.

Normal Levels of Testosterone

Just like your cholesterol or blood pressure, there is a numerical range of Testosterone levels (also known as T levels) that are considered normal. The brain and the testicles work together to keep Testosterone levels within this range. When levels of Testosterone are below normal, the brain signals the testicles to make more. When Testosterone levels reach a normal level, the brain signals the testicles to make less.
