Symptoms of Low Testosterone In Men
Testosterone naturally decreases as men age, but it can result in other issues when it dips too low. Fortunately, hormone replacement pellet insertion offered by Biote Certified Providers may help improve low testosterone (low T) symptoms.
What Causes Low Testosterone?
There are essentially two causes of low T—Primary hypogonadism and secondary hypogonadism. Primary hypogonadism occurs when the testicles are injured and have not descended or if one suffers from Klinefelter syndrome. Secondary hypogonadism is from pituitary disorders, medications, elevated blood sugar, and aging. Some signs of low T in men include low mood, decreased sex drive, and physical weakness.
Low T Symptoms
There are several different low T symptoms, and indicators of low T are not always obvious. Here are some common symptoms of testosterone deficiency:
- Low Energy
- Loss of Body Hair
- Loss of Muscle Mass and Strength
- Weak Bones
- Mood Swings
- Low Mood
- Hot Flashes
- Low Sex Drive
- Low Semen Volume
Tackling Symptoms of Low T in Men
If a patient is experiencing low T symptoms, it is important to contact a Biote Certified Provider to identify the cause. Pellet therapy may help correct low T and may help with other unseen risks of low testosterone.
