Low Male Testosterone Level – Symptoms, Diagnosis …

Recommended by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 1st, 2020

Low testosterone effects almost every major system in the male body and has potentially serious long term health consequences. Testosterone significantly affects the brain, libido, muscles, blood, and many other aspects of male health. A 1996 study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine followed three groups of men. One group was given testosterone and prescribed a strength training program, one group was given testosterone and told not to exercise and one group was just given a training program without testosterone. It was no surprise that the group which exercised on testosterone gained the most muscle and lost the most fat, but the group which took testosterone without exercise actually had greater improvement in muscle and fat composition than the group which trained without it. You can't build muscle without it! Causes and Development; Contributing Risk Factors Some causes of low testosterone levels include congenital problems (such as deficiencies of male hormones and rare malformation syndromes) and acquired problems that include aging, chronic illness, drugs, starvation, stress, head trauma, infections, cancers, surgeries, alcoholism, removal of or trauma to the testicles, and infection or twisting of the testicles in their sac. In addition, certain drugs compete with testosterone in the body.

Married males have significantly lower testosterone levels on average. One study found that unmarried males had up to 20% higher average testosterone levels than married males.

One study of men suffering from low testosterone (average level: 268ng/dL) found the following:

- 89% reported a lack of energy - 79% reported erectile dysfunction - 70% reported a loss of pubic hair - 66% percent reported a decrease in sexual endurance.

Those with slightly low testosterone levels (in the 400-500ng/dL range) can often treat this condition naturally through sex (both sex and sexual anticipation boost testosterone levels); diet (increased monounsaturated fats, fish oil capsules, processed carbohydrate and sugars avoidance, lower carbohydrates in general); increased quality sleep (testosterone production increases during sleep); 'winning' and having a 'winning attitude' (in other words, a positive change of attitude.)

Sports of all kinds (including chess!) are excellent and natural testosterone boosters.

Once large study in 2008 found that men with testosterone levels below 250ng/dL were fatter and had lower HDL, higher triglycerides, higher blood pressure, and higher blood glucose all serious markers of poor health and high risk. These men were tracked over 18 years and were found to have a 40% higher death rate from all causes.
