Do You Have Testosterone Deficiency?

Posted on

You may have noticed certain changes in your body, but you are way past puberty. You are not diagnosed with any medical condition yet particular signs and symptoms are happening. You feel weird and uneasy with everything that is going on. Whatever is happening inside your system, it could be because of hormonal changes – particularly, something that is dreaded by most men: testosterone deficiency.

Understanding Testosterone

Testosterone is the hormone in our body that is responsible for the proper development of a man’s sexual characteristics. Produced by the testicles, testosterone also helps maintain muscle bulk, bone growth, memory, and sexual function. Also known as a “man’s hormone”, testosterone often lowers in level as a person ages. There are also other factors that can cause a decline in testosterone levels, such as injury to the testicles, chemotherapy, genetic abnormalities, and other medical conditions.

Do You Have It?

You may have testosterone deficiency when you experience the following signs and symptoms:

  • Loss of sexual drive
  • A feeling of depression
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • A decreased sense of well-being
  • Difficulty focusing on a certain thing
  • Decrease in muscle mass and a gain in weight and body fat
  • Significant changes in levels of cholesterol
  • Fragility of the bones, or a case of osteoporosis
  • Decrease in hemoglobin levels, and possibly a case of mild anemia
  • Decrease in the amount of body hair
