AUSTIN -- Just as in women, men are finding out low hormone levels can negatively affect physical stamina and can result in mood swings.Also doctors have found low hormone levels can negatively affect those men trying to have children.

Andy Compton of Cedar Park would often work out -- hard -- to help relieve the stress of his job.He says despite tough workouts and a strict diet, he kept gaining weight.It was just one of the many things that weren't adding up regarding his physical well being.

"From staying up too late at night and waking up too early in the morning, I just started feeling bad," said Compton."My quality of life wasn't what I wanted it to be."

Compton started reading about and seeing adds on TV for low T, or low testosterone.

"Today we know there are 13 million men in the U.S. that are diagnosed with low testosterone every year," said Parviz Kavoussi, a reproductive urologist at St. David's South Austin Medical Center."We think less than five percent are actually being treated and seeking treatment."

Kavoussi says low T can cause fatigue or sexual side effects, as well as emotional side effects like depression or agitation.
