Signs of Low Testosterone Levels

As you’ve aged, you’ve experienced lots of wonderful things. You’ve changed careers, watched your family grow, and made wonderful memories. However, age has also brought on some unwelcome changes. These changes are likely due to a drop in your testosterone levels. 

 

Our team of experts at the Modern Wellness Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada, specializes in identifying the cause of your symptoms and getting you the treatment you need to start feeling like yourself again. 

The science behind testosterone

You have lots of different hormones in your body that are responsible for various functions. Hormones are chemicals that are released into your system by glands. Testosterone is a hormone produced by glands found in your testicles.  

 

This hormone maintains and regulates things like:

 

 

You start to see drops in testosterone as you age. In fact, you lose about 1% of testosterone every year once you turn 30 years old. Being alert to the signs and symptoms of lowered testosterone levels is the first step in getting treatment. Here are some things to pay attention to:

Sexual changes

One of the telltale signs of low testosterone levels is changes in your sex life, including the following:

Erectile dysfunction

Because testosterone stimulates the production of nitric oxide (the main chemical that produces an erection), low levels make it very difficult to get or maintain an erection. 

Smaller testicles

You might notice that your testicles actually begin to shrink in size even if it’s not cold outside. This is a sign that you’ve begun to lose testosterone. 

Reduced production of semen

Testosterone is integral in how much semen you’re able to produce. Losing testosterone and semen production can have an impact on how fertile you are. 

Lowered sex drive

If you’re not as interested in sex as you once were, you’re experiencing a decrease in testosterone. 

Physical changes

Along with changes to your sex life, low testosterone can have an effect on your physical life as well. 

Thinning or loss of hair

Testosterone is in charge of where and how your hair grows. Less testosterone, therefore, means you start to lose hair. 

Reduced bone and muscle mass

If you’re starting to feel weaker and unable to get yourself in the shape you were once in, you might be experiencing a drop in testosterone. 

Difficulty sleeping

Without all of your hormones being produced at full capacity, you might find it difficult to fall or stay asleep. Some with low testosterone actually develop a sleeping disorder called sleep apnea. 

Reduced energy levels

Another frustrating aspect of losing testosterone is losing your energy. Without testosterone, you start to feel sluggish and uninterested in being active. 

Increased weight

Because you’re not moving as much and don’t have as much energy, you might see a larger number on the scale. You can even develop a condition called gynecomastia which results in an enlargement of the breasts. 

Changes in mood

You might also notice a difference in your ability to focus, signs of depression, and changes to your mood as a result of low testosterone. 

What can you do about your low testosterone?

With all of the things that can go wrong when your testosterone drops, it may feel like there’s no hope for feeling like your younger, healthier self ever again. Think again. We offer hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as a treatment for your low levels. 

 

HRT is effective because it supports your body’s natural hormone production. With a simple injection, we can accurately, naturally, and safely boost your testosterone levels. You’ll feel more energized, healthier, and younger in no time. 


If you’re feeling defeated, fatigued, and hopeless, look no further than our HRT. We’re dedicated to your physical, mental, and emotional health and to helping you make these the best years of your life. Call us at Modern Wellness Clinic or schedule an appointment online to get started.
