Low levels of testosterone can have multiple negative effects on your health and quality of life. At Low Testosterone & Weight Loss Center, our team of health care providers are here to help.

What is testosterone?

Testosterone, the sex hormone most often associated with masculinity, naturally occurs in both males and females, but is present in much larger quantities in adult men. Testosterone plays an important role in several parts of your body, including:

Your testosterone production naturally increases during puberty. After you reach the age of 30, your testosterone levels naturally decrease. Other conditions can also cause low testosterone.

What are the impacts of low testosterone?

Many men deal with problems related to low testosterone beginning in their 40s, with the likelihood of low T increasing each year.

The American Urology Association defines low testosterone as less than 300 nanograms of the hormone per deciliter of blood. If your testosterone levels fall below the norm, negative consequences may adversely impact your health, preventing you from going about your day-to-day life as you’re used to.

Low testosterone can significantly lower your sex drive and virility. Low testosterone can also cause emotional instability, mood swings, and sleep problems, and reduce your overall vitality.
