Low T Symptoms
Feeling tired, depressed, or weak? These may be tell-tale signs that you are suffering from low testosterone.
The lack of energy is one of the most common signs of this condition, especially when you feel like you’re gradually losing the drive that used to move you every day.
As such, it can also affect your sex drive, especially since this hormone plays an important role in your libido.
Low testosterone can also result in mood swings, leaving you more sensitive or irritable, and even suffer times of depression. It can be especially difficult for men, since many have trouble expressing their feelings to their family and friends.
Since this hormone also affects the production of strong and healthy muscles, you may experience reduced muscle mass when you have low testosterone. The is also true with your bones, which in more severe cases may lead to osteoporosis. This condition may make your bones more susceptible to fractures later in life.
In addition to losing muscle and bone mass with low testosterone, hair and memory loss can occur too. Low testosterone is also associated with increased body fat and an enlargement of the male breasts. The latter is often due to a hormonal imbalance causing higher levels of estrogen than testosterone.

Studies show that normal testosterone assists with mood stabilization, which can create a positive balance between professional and personal life.
Increased Body Fat
Low testosterone often results not only in reduced muscle mass, but also in increased body fat.
Testosterone replacement can help restore focus, creating a more productive you. Many men with low testosterone feel too tired to accomplish daily activities and often get off track easily.
Low testosterone plays a vital role in a man’s libido. As men age, most experience a decline in sex drive to varying degrees. Testosterone fuels a man’s sex drive.
Swollen and /or Breast Tenderness
The enlarged male breasts associated with gynecomastia are caused by a hormonal imbalance — specifically, the balance between testosterone and male estrogen.
Increased Hair Loss
Testosterone plays an important role in many body functions, including hair production. Hair loss in men and hormones are closely related. The relationship between testosterone and hair loss is due to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone. DHT can cause hair follicles to regress and die, resulting in premature balding.
Has memory loss started affecting your life on a daily basis? Studies indicate that low testosterone may be to blame.
Reduced Muscle Mass and Strength
There is a comparative relationship between declining levels of testosterone and reduced muscle mass in men. Testosterone is vital to producing strong and healthy muscles. The hormone binds to receptors in the muscle cells, telling muscles to contract and grow. When the body does not have enough testosterone, it suffers from muscle loss because there is not enough of the hormone to bind to muscle cells.
Low testosterone can cause men to become irritable. Sometimes the problem is more apparent to friends, family members and colleagues, than to the person suffering from low testosterone. “A guy might say he’s fine, but the people around him know otherwise,” according to Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, associate clinical professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the author of Testosterone for Life.
Decreased Bone Density
Men with low testosterone can experience bone loss, or osteoporosis, because testosterone aids in the production and strengthening of bone. Men with low testosterone, especially older men who have had untreated low testosterone for years, are more susceptible to bone fractures.
