Most men have probably heard of testosterone, and most men may have a general idea of what it is and what it does for them. Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women, though men have much more of it. Testosterone affects a variety of areas of men’s health, but it is primarily associated with sex drive, or libido, sperm production, muscle mass and general energy level. You can therefore see the problems a man may encounter if he has abnormally low testosterone levels.
Male testosterone decreases naturally over time, but some men experience unusually low testosterone levels earlier in their lives. This can be tied to a number of health conditions, such as alcoholism and kidney disease. Another condition that affects some men is hypogonadism, which causes the testes to function improperly, resulting in low testosterone. Symptoms of low testosterone in men include reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depression, and loss of body hair. If your sexual wellness and overall performance has been suffering and you suspect you might have low testosterone, speak to the doctor at Pinnacle Men’s Health in Jacksonville.
