All about testosterone and sexuality in men.

TESTOSTERONE is a hormone produced naturally in the body. In men, it comes mainly from the testis. The adrenal glands also produce small amounts of testosterone.

Many do not know this but testosterone is not exclusively a male hormone. Testosterone is also produced in women, mainly in the ovaries, but the amount of testosterone is much lower as compared to men.

Testosterone causes increased muscle bulk as well as the growth of bones. In men, it helps in the development of male sex organs (penis and prostate). The deepening of the voice in men as well as growth of beard is also caused by testosterone.

Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome

When testosterone levels in the body drops below normal (less than 12 nmol/l), symptoms like lethargy, mood disturbance, irritability, loss of muscle mass, depression, loss of concentration and obesity (increased waist circumference) may occur.

This is known as testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS). Other names for it include hypogonadism, andropause, androgen deficiency in ageing males (ADAM) and partial androgen deficiency in ageing males (PADAM).

The rate of decline of testosterone levels in the body is about 1% annually after the age of 30.

Testosterone deficiency may also give rise to sexual issues like loss of interest in sex, decreased arousal, low desire, low libido, erectile dysfunction and infertility in men.

This will inadvertently reduce quality of life.
