Low Testosterone (Low T)
After age 30, most men begin to experience a gradual decline in testosterone. Although testosterone levels never reach zero (as estrogen levels do in women during menopause), low testosterone levels can cause men to experience a range of symptoms if testosterone decreases more than it should. Low testosterone, or low T, is diagnosed when levels fall below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). A normal range is typically 300–1000 ng/dL, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. A blood test called a serum testosterone test is used to determine your level of circulating testosterone.
A range of symptoms can occur if testosterone production drastically drops below normal. Signs of low T are often subtle. Listed below are some of the symptoms.
- Low Sex Drive
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Low Semen Volume
- Hair Loss
- Loss of Muscle Mass
- Increased Body Fat
- Decreased Bone Mass
- Mood Changes
A blood test can determine if you have low testosterone and there are treatment options to help boost your levels back to a normal range. Treatments consist of several options like testosterone creams, injections or pellets that are implanted in the soft tissues where your body slowly absorbs the testosterone into the bloodstream over the course of about 3-4 months.
