Low Testosterone Symptoms

Youve seen the commercials regarding Low T youve probably heard at least in passing discussion revolving around low testosterone but if youre like most men you have no idea what the low testosterone symptoms are and how serious they can be. Low testosterone is a condition that affects millions of men in the U.S. alone; the FDA estimates that as many as five-million American men suffer, with non-government estimates reaching levels of 15-20 million. In either case, less than 5% of all who suffer actually seek out and receive treatment and when we examine the low testosterone symptoms this just doesnt make any sense.

Low testosterone symptoms can be very severe and can dramatically diminish your quality of life. Such symptoms can negatively affect your sexual function, your direct physical state, mental state and even your general mental disposition. While the low testosterone symptoms on their surface are not directly life-threatening, when left neglected they can be an open doorway to many far more serious conditions. This really shouldnt be all that surprising, as the testosterone hormone is vital to our health and function; so vital it is one of the most important hormones we produce. Lets take a look at the many low testosterone symptoms and see what we can learn.

The Cause of Low Testosterone:

By far the most common cause of Low-T and low testosterone symptoms is age. As we age our natural hormone production declines; it is simply a fact of life. Generally speaking this is a slow decline that builds over a period of many years; so slow that as each year passes many men become accustomed to the low levels and in many cases detrimentally so. Once we reach our golden years we can pretty well guarantee our levels will be low but many begin to experience low levels in their 40s and more than you might think even in their 30s. Regardless of ones age, if you suffer treatment is available and there is no reason to avoid it.

Beyond age low testosterone symptoms can occur for many other reasons. The general stresses of life can have a negative effect, as stress hormones released by the body have a negative effect on testosterone levels. Further, many medications can have a negative effect on testosterone production, which is ironic since medicine is supposed to improve our lives. Other possible causes include regular alcohol consumption, pituitary dysfunction, kidney failure, testicular damage and chronic diseases such as aids and any other muscle wasting related condition.
