Testosterone Replacement Therapy
What is a Testosterone Deficiency?
Low testosterone does not always come with tell-tale signs that signal the issue. Unfortunately, many men who suffer from this hormone deficiency do not even realize it because of its varied and unique symptoms from person to person. It can be hard for even medical professionals to diagnose low testosterone without extensive testing specifically targeting men’s sexual health. Symptoms caused by a lack of testosterone differ widely among men.
What are the Signs of Low T?
For more than 20 million men in the U.S., low testosterone (otherwise known as hypogonadism) is a reality. The condition often develops after age 30 and steadily decreases testosterone levels by about 1% annually for most men. According to the American Urological Association (AUA), low testosterone is indicated by blood levels below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). These reduced levels can lead to various symptoms such as:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decreased energy levels
- Increase in body fat
- Changes in mood
- Low libido (sex drive)
- Difficulty sleeping
- Reduced bone mass
- Hair loss
- Reduced semen volume
- Hot flashes
- Reduced muscle mass

Testosterone deficiency is frequently correlated with other health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, hypothyroidism, HIV/AIDS, and high cholesterol. Additionally, it should be noted that those who have a long history of using narcotics or steroids; have undergone chemotherapy or radiation treatments; experienced testicular trauma/infection; or had head trauma are at heightened risk for low testosterone levels.
