Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Medical Information:
ICD 10 Code: Q98.0
Affected Anatomy: The anatomy of the underlying organ system or structures associated with this entity
Common Causes:
Typical Symptoms:
Risk Factors:

The prevalent idea in today's culture is that only men over 60 suffer from-the indications of reduced testosterone, regrettably, this isn't accurate. Men can be affected by the symptoms of low testosterone regardless of physical state, age or health. To put-it bluntly, all guys should be worried about low testosterone, and the way to identify its symptoms early.

Unfortunately, most men take their low-testosterone symptoms as merely an all-natural part of turning old. It is true that their associated symptoms and decreasing testosterone amounts are an ordinary and natural part of mens aging. What is false is that there is nothing you can certainly do about this. Restoring your testosterone levels may enable you to lead an extended, regular, fit, successful life. Just how will you start realizing the signs?

The principal and frequently most recognizable, symptoms of low-testosterone include:

  • Trouble resting
  • Decline of muscular power
  • Baldness
  • Depressive disorders
  • Decrease in body mass
  • Mood swings
  • Low stamina
  • Irritability
  • Low sexual intercourse
  • Postural issues
  • Erectile difficulties
  • Exhaustion
  • Raised blood-pressure
  • Decreased sperm fertility
  • Decreased breast firmness
  • Infertility

Usually doctors will first dispense a really basic survey, which asks you concerning the preceding signs in query form. This survey has-been standardized, and is called the 'ADAM (Androgen Deficiency in the Ageing Male)' survey. ADAM helps physicians create a original view of your issue's severity prior to-your blood check, and could really be thought of similar to the physical examination which frequently precedes the more comprehensive X-rays and MRIs.

As you can see there are several different symptoms of low testosterone, and even only one of them is able to take a serious toll on your life, and maybe your lifes partner. Symptoms of low testosterone that are simply adjusted for instead of handled properly will continue to whack you over the years.

Low testosterone and Health

Surprisingly, there is only a relatively small body of research on the long-term health effects of low testosterone.

Here is what to look for:

Physical changes. Breast pain, swelling, or nodules / lumps (gynecomastia - female breast tissue in males), reduced muscle mass and muscle strength, decreased bone density, increased body fat, hair loss (both thinning and falling out), hot flashes and, a general lack of energy.

Changes in sexual function. This may include erectile dysfunction - the inability to become sexually aroused, decreased quality and / or duration of erections, fewer spontaneous erections (awake or asleep); reduce libido / sexual desire, decreased sperm quantity and movement, and ultimately infertility.

Changes in sleep patterns. Easily distracted or light sleep, decreased ability to reach the latter stages of sleep (3, 4, and REM), insomnia - reducing the ability to fall asleep easily and, sensitivity and other sleep disorders including inability to sleep through the night.

Emotional changes. Increased moodiness and seemingly bipolar (rapid or extreme) changes in mood, decreased motivation and / or self-confidence, decreased mental clarity, including problems such as difficulty concentrating, remembering a fact, or remember things, unwarranted feelings of sadness, loneliness or depression and , a sense of general decline in prosperity.

Such are the signs of low testosterone.
