If you are fatigued or you notice some weight gain, you may have low T. Know the signs and symptoms of low testosterone so you can get the right treatment and boost your testosterone levels.
Testosterone is a hormone produced by both females and males, but while women only produce a small amount, it is the primary sex hormone in males and is produced in the testicles. Testosterone stimulates a male’s sex drive, affects a male’s appearance, and adds to sperm production. Testosterone also aids in building muscle and bone mass. As men age, their production of testosterone gradually decreases, making it more difficult to build muscle, hold an erection, and maintain a sex drive. If you think you may have low testosterone levels, a doctor can suggest proper treatment and prescribe medication. But if you do not know the signs and symptoms of low testosterone, you wouldn’t know to seek professional help in the first place. Keep reading to learn more about common health issues that might indicate low T so you can get the right treatment.

Difficulty Holding an Erection
Testosterone helps relax the blood vessels in penile tissues in order to increase blood flow, thus resulting in an erection. One of the first signs of low testosterone is the difficulty or inability to hold an erection or having an erection altogether. While there are many other health factors that might be causing this as well, it is best to test your testosterone count to see if this may be the underlying issue.
Do you feel tired all the time? No matter how much sleep you get, you’re constantly exhausted? Fatigue is a common symptom of low T. It can make you feel less motivated to do simple tasks and affects your mood. Boost your testosterone levels and boost your mood with the right treatment.
If you have been noticing an increase in body fat and it is harder for you to lose weight all of a sudden, even with a regular exercise routine, low testosterone might be the problem. In some cases, men might start developing breasts due to gynecomastia, which occurs when there’s a hormone imbalance as estrogen levels are higher than usual while your testosterone levels are low.
Reduction in Testicle Size
Another sign of low testosterone to look out for is the reduction of testicle size. If you are noticing that your testicles have gotten smaller and it is not because of the weather or other health disorder, you likely have low testosterone. It is also important to note that men who experience this with low T have also noted that their scrotum is softer to the touch as well.
The good news is that if you are experiencing any of the following signs and symptoms of low testosterone, with proper testosterone therapy, an improved diet, or medical intervention, low T can be treated. Remember that the earlier the issue is diagnosed, the better. Always consult a medical professional before treating symptoms to ensure an appropriate treatment plan for you.
