Low testosterone (Low-T) is an increasing problem, affecting more and more adult men with every year and with every generation. If you feel you are at risk for Low-T, we advise that you make yourself aware of symptoms and warning signs that can show up during or preceding low testosterone levels. Below are three signs that you should look out for.
1. Change in Sleep Patterns
If you are having trouble sleeping, or trouble staying asleep, it may be related to lower levels of testosterone. There may also be a developer of insomnia and other irregularities of your sleep patterns. If you have sleep apnea, Low-T can worsen your condition. Please come into our facilities for a consultation if you are showing these symptoms.
2. Sexual Changes
Symptoms can show in this category in a number of ways. You may feel like your sex drive (libido) has diminished, and your desire for sex is weakened and less frequent. Or that you have trouble getting or maintaining an erection before or during sex, or with having random erections. An example of random erections is erections while you sleep. All of these symptoms, separately or in any combination, are classical signs of Low-T. It should be noted that Low-T is not the only causing factor of decreased sex drive and erectile dysfunction, and you should see our consultants about these issues as well. With Low-T, you may also find a decrease in semen volume or a decrease in sperm count and fertility.
3. Physical Changes
Those diagnosed with Low-T often find themselves experiencing body changes such as reduced muscle bulk. Another change experienced is increased body fat, either drastic or sudden. You may also find yourself fatigued, have mood changes and other emotional shifts (such as lack of motivation), and even hair loss. Especially if you are maintaining a healthy, fit lifestyle and find yourself undergoing these changes, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our facilities.
