Is Low Testosterone Affecting Your Health?

Low testosterone is an unfortunately common and very serious condition that impacts millions of men today. While some men may think this is a natural part of aging or something that only impacts their sexual performance, it is much more serious than that. This is why it is so important to not only truly understand what low testosterone is but understand how it may be impacting your health as well.

Even though low testosterone is extremely common, many men don’t realize how serious it is and what the symptoms of this condition are. For most men suffering from low testosterone, the first signs of low testosterone issues include the following common symptoms:

  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Low energy levels 
  • Increased body fat
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Problems getting or maintaining an erection
  • Issues concentrating
  • Reduced sex drive

These are all side effects that can impact your ability to function from day-to-day and impact your overall quality of life. However, this low testosterone can also have other, very medical side effects and can have a serious impact on your overall health and well-being. Here are some of the long-term side effects of low testosterone: 

  • Weakened bones or osteoporosis (which can make people more prone to injury)
  • Cardiovascular issues including heart disease 
  • Obesity and issues related to obesity 
  • Depression
  • High blood pressure

These are severe and even life-threatening healthcare conditions that can be linked to low testosterone, especially low testosterone levels that are left untreated.
