Recommended by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Low Testosterone (Low-T) Low testosterone (low-T) facts Low testosterone is a term used by physicians to describe below normal levels of the hormone testosterone in individuals. Symptoms of low testosterone include erectile dysfunction in men as the most common symptom; there are many other symptoms that can occur in both men and women (for example, low sex drive, bone and muscle tissue loss, depression). Causes of low-T are numerous; some are classified into primary, secondary or tertiary causes while others are due to underlying diseases or conditions and/or lifestyle factors. Medical care should be sought for symptoms of low-T. Low-T is presumptively diagnosed by clinical signs and symptoms; definitive diagnosis is usually done in adult males by a blood test that determines testosterone levels. Treatment in males is done by prescribing testosterone shots or testosterone that can be adsorbed topically through the skin or gums. The complications of low-T are many and include erectile dysfunction, depression, bone density loss, muscle loss, and many others. The outlook for patients with low-T may range from good to poor, depending on a individual's sex, age, and response to treatment. Low-T cannot be prevented in some individuals usually because of genetic or underlying diseases; however, in other individuals, low-T can be prevented or delayed by lifestyle changes and choices.
