Low testosterone has a multitude of effects. Most common symptoms include low energy, fatigue, low libido and depressed mood. However, low testosterone is also associated with decreased muscle mass, lower bone density, and anemia. Hormone replacement therapy is even being studied as a treatment to increase functional cardiac capacity in patients with congestive heart failure.
Testosterone levels begin to decline in men starting in their early 30’s. The majority of men maintain adequate levels into their 50’s. Along with age, obesity can also cause the onset of a decrease in testosterone.
- 40% of obese men (BMI >30) tested have low testosterone
- 50% of diabetic obese men (BMI >30) tested have low testosterone
Benefits of increasing testosterone to therapeutic levels include: improved sense of vitality, increased libido, decreased erectile dysfunction, improved energy level, decreased irritability, improved concentration and an increase in lean muscle mass and bone density. Testosterone also effects body composition to help with a trimmer waistline
