What does low Testosterone mean to men? How does Low T affect our overall health, physically and emotionally, and what can we do to change it? Let’s take a look at the symptoms of Low T in men.

Physical/Emotional Changes from Low T in Men

Testosterone is often discussed as the “male” hormone. For men, testosterone is responsible for a number of physical changes in our body as well as develop and age. It is responsible for muscle growth and muscle mass, body hair growth and the overall development of the masculine body type. For men, testosterone levels peak in our late teens to early twenties, and by age 30, levels begin to drop at a rate of about 1% a year. Signs of Low T may be increased fatigue, decrease muscle mass and strength, increased body fat, erectile dysfunction, poor focus and concentration, and in some men fragile bones and increased cholesterol.

Low T may also be a contributor to sleep disturbance in men. Research has shown that Low T in men shows a correlation between levels of testosterone and number of hours of sleep per night. This means simply that as levels of T drop, so may quality hours of sleep.

Low testosterone in men can also be a contributor to changes in mood and/or emotions. Low T may show itself emotionally as feelings of sadness or depressed mood. It can lead to lower feelings of self-worth and value. Some men experience memory difficulty, lower motivation and emotional lability such as irritability, anxiety and anger.
