26 Mar How Your Low Testosterone May Be Impacting Your Quality of Life
Testosterone is one of the most important hormones that both men and women have in their body. Testosterone has a lot of responsibility in the body, and really starts to ramp up in men during puberty. However, once men reach the age of 30, their testosterone levels naturally start to decrease. For some men, this natural decrease is subtle and unnoticeable. For others, their testosterone levels drop too much and too low, and can lead to a number of side effects.
There are some men that deal with low testosterone problems starting in their 40s, with the likelihood of dealing with low T issues increasing each and every year. If you are one of these men who has struggled or is struggling with low T, then it can have a significant impact on your overall quality of life. This is why getting testosterone tests is so important.
Here are some of the ways in which low testosterone can impact your quality of life.
- Lower your sex drive and virility
- Lead to erectile dysfunction
- Reduce testicle size and the amount of semen produced
- Cause emotional instability and mood swings
- Impact quality of sleep and lead to sleep issues
- Cause depression and extreme fatigue
- Lead to hot flashes
- Increase body fat and reduce bone and muscle mass
- Lead to hair loss
If you are experiencing symptoms like this, and haven’t had your testosterone levels checked yet, then consider getting in for a blood test to check your hormone levels. This is the best and most accurate way to determine where your hormone levels are and what type of treatment may work for you.
