Signs Of Testosterone Deficiency - Download MP3
For men, Testosterone is pretty much the most important hormone produced by the human body. It is the source of male fertility and libido, and it is the primary source of the masculine characteristics which are exemplified in the gender. In the womb, the abundance of Testosterone is what triggers the fetus' development of male sex organs, and the flood of Testosterone during puberty leads to the maturation of the sex organs.
Sex drive remains high through the teens and twenties, and the positive benefits of Testosterone stay in effect in full force throughout the twenties.
When Does the Body Start Producing Less Testosterone?
The issue is that, around the age of thirty, Testosterone Secretion and activity starts to fade, and for years or decades this can lead to some symptoms detrimental to both health and life quality.
There are many reasons why Testosterone Deficiency happens, including to children and young adults, but our clinic is primarily concerned with the Treatment of Low-T and Andropause in male (and female) patients over the age of thirty.
Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency is a significant condition which affects many men as they grow older. To know when to talk to a Hormone Physician or Health and Wellness Doctor about Hormone Deficiency and your health, it's important to understand the signs of Andropause and Low-T
Symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency
Before we continue further, it's important to recognize that the only person that is qualified to diagnose Low-T is a physician, and you should not self-diagnose and attempt to purchase Testosterone without a prescription. Low-T Diagnostic Testing can provide a vivid picture of your Testosterone and Health Profile, allowing your HRT Physician to make an informed diagnosis.
Blood testing is highly useful in diagnosing Low-T accurately because 98% of the hormone which is released by the Adrenal Glands and Testes is absorbed into the bloodstream to circulate through the body to affect change. In fact, if you visit a Hormone Clinic in your area and they don't want to take a blood sample, you should leave the clinic immediately because they are not doing their job and could put your health at risk for a quick buck.
Symptoms of Hypogonadism, Low-T and Andropause
The Following are Symptoms Associated with Testosterone Deficiency:
Diminished Libido and Sex Drive: Men with Low-T experience a languishing interest and desire for sexual activity. They just start to lose their passion, and their bodies don't generate sufficient libido for regular sex with their partner, or with anyone. This also impacts performance when the individual does finally get around to having sex.
Erectile Dysfunction: Testosterone not only stimulates desire, but it also supports the natural and healthy function of the sex organs. Erectile Dysfunction is one of the most common symptoms of severe Testosterone Deficiency. They have trouble generating an erection even when the passion is there, and they have issues getting fully hard or staying sexually excited long enough to reach orgasm. One's sexual ability is often dependent on fluctuating T-Production from day to day, which can make it a crap shoot which days that sex is even an option.
Fatigue and Lack of Energy: Like other Steroids, Testosterone is a powerful metabolic hormone, and men need Testosterone to stay active and energetic. The reduced energy associated with Low-T and Testosterone Deficiency manifests in many ways, including lack of willpower, drive, and physical endurance. Energy is a crucial part of taking a day and making the most of it, and the loss of assertiveness and confidence related to Andropause will further disrupt your ability to get-up-and-go.
Trouble Sleeping: Testosterone and healthy sleep are intricately connected. Poor sleeping habits exacerbate symptoms of Low-T and Testosterone Deficiency makes it harder to get a good night's rest. This also causes Human Growth Hormone Levels to decline sharply, and it wreaks havoc upon your cardiovascular health, your cortisol levels, and your cognitive sharpness.
Mood Swings and Depression: Testosterone is not only a sex-hormone but a psychological hormone as well. Testosterone production promotes healthy neurological hormone balance and supports positive male characteristics such as confidence and assertiveness.
Reduction in Penis Size: The size and length of an erection are based partially off of the availability of Testosterone. This means that Low-T can make your penis smaller.
Loss of Muscle Mass: Testosterone is the most potent anabolic hormone produced by the male body, and is the reason why men's muscles are much larger than women's. Low-T makes men lose muscle mass, and it makes them have to work harder to achieve the same weight-training goals.
Diminished Endurance and Strength: With this loss of muscle mass comes to an undeniable loss in strength. This applies to all lean muscle mass in the body. This affects circulation because the body is no longer able to pump blood as efficiently through the body, which significantly reduces exercise capacity on top of the smaller, weaker muscles.
Weight Gain, Testosterone, and Obesity: The reduced lean muscle mass and active metabolism of the body makes weight gain inevitable without changes in exercise habits or diet. Testosterone causes the body to burn more energy, and without it, calories are merely converted into fat, which increases cortisol and estrogen production and further diminishes health and inhibits Testosterone Production.
Poor Cholesterol Balance: Low-T and Andropause protect the cardiovascular system further by helping to maintain a more optimal Cholesterol balance, with Low LDL and High HDL Cholesterol. Low-T also increases the damaging effects of triglycerides.
