What Are the Symptoms of Low Testosterone?

The decline of testosterone can be very bothersome and

cause a significant decrease in the quality of life. Many

men experience symptoms of this decline in testosterone.

Some symptoms are:

  • Decrease in muscle mass
  • Increase in fat
  • Decreased libido
  • Depressed mood
  • Difficulty achieving and maintaining erections
  • Decreased energy
  • Poor performance at work
  • Trouble concentrating

In addition to bothersome quality of life symptoms,

evidence suggests that low levels of testosterone are

associated with more serious health risks such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease (this includes an increase risk of heart attack and poor circulation)
  • Osteoporosis (with decreasing levels, men in their 40’s begin to loose bone thickness and

    are at risk for fractures)
