Low testosterone or low-T, is a common condition that can seriously affect your health and your life.

About 39% of men over the age of 45 have low testosterone levels. The number of men affected increases with age, from 20% at age 60 to 50% of men over 80.

Symptoms:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased energy
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Higher fat and loss of muscle

High risk groups include men with:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Opiod dependence

If your sexual drive decreases, speak with your doctor about your options and whether you should be tested.
