Testosterone deficiency can make a grown man cry….sorta
A variety of symptoms can indicate if a man has low levels of testosterone, the male hormone, pumped out by the testicles into the bloodstream, that transforms boys into men.
Because low testosterone (Low T) can be associated with other conditions, including certain cancers, it’s important for a man to see his physician.
Symptoms of Low T include:
- Decreased sex drive or libido
- Poor erections
- Increased breast size (also called gynecomastia)
- Loss of muscle mass
- Decreased body hair
- Reduced energy levels
- Sleep problems
- Being more emotional
Fortunately, Low T can be treated with hormone replacement therapy.
However, losing weight may help some middle-aged men regain higher testosterone levels — naturally.
