HOW LOW TESTOSTERONE LEVELS AFFECT MEN
According to a new study from the Cleveland Clinic, low testosterone production affects 40% of men 40 yearsand older, indicating that male testosterone levels have declined 25% inthe last 20 years.
Determining what is a “normal” or“low” testosterone level is complicated and varies per person because levels are based off many factors like age, weight, activity level, nutrition, and even prescribed medications.
Signs of low testosterone may be significantly noticeable or even subtle. You may experience a range of symptoms, including:
· Low sex drive
· Difficulty achieving and/or maintaining an erection
· Decreased endurance throughout the day
· Decreased motivation and drive
· Muscle mass loss
· Increased body fat
· Mood swings
· Brain fog and/or decreased cognitive clarity
· Poor quality of sleep and/or waking up not refreshed in the mornings
Low testosterone may increase your risk of developing other health conditions like diabetes, metabolic disorders, and heart disease. It is just as important to pinpoint the underlying cause of low testosterone as it is to treat it. Men should seek education, guidance, and/or management from a trusted medical provider who is highly trained and specializes in hormone therapy.
