How do you know you have Low T and what are the immediate signs?
Low testosterone or “male hypogonadism” can be congenital or can develop later in life.
A male’s symptoms and options for treatment depends on at what point his hypogonadism actually occurs. For instance, hypogonadism during primary puberty can reduce muscle mass development, slightly impair deepening of the voice or affect body hair and penis/testicle growth and functionality.
As an older age, a man can experience signs of erectile dysfunction, decreased body hair growth, infertility, reduced sex drive, decreased muscle mass, decreased bone mass, , development of breast tissue or gynecomastia, fatigue and hot flashes.
Treatment for low testosterone depends on where the decrease in production or regulation originates.
