Surprising Symptoms of Low Testosterone
Many people are familiar with the symptoms that may indicate low testosterone such as a decreased sex drive, difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection, and low semen volume. However, there are certain symptoms that may surprise you:
Increased Loss of Hair
Testosterone plays a huge role in the intimate part of our lives, but it also affects other places in the body. If you notice that your body is losing or unable to grow facial or body hair, this may be a sign of low t.
Mood changes are often thought of as occurring in women only; however, this simply isn’t true! Testosterone is a hormone and affects the body in different ways if there is a low or high level of it. If you feel more ornery or emotional than usual, your testosterone may be affecting your mood.
More Body Fat, Less Muscle
If you are seeing a noticeably larger belly and less muscle mass, this could be a sign of low testosterone. A great way to fight this is to continue going to the gym and working out, watch what you eat, drink plenty of water, and sleeping at least eight hours.
What Can I Do About My Low T?
If you think you have low testosterone, it is important to talk to an experienced urologist as soon as possible. Your urologist will discuss the best options for treating your low testosterone. A few treatments we offer include replacing testosterone through: intramuscular injections, placing a patch or gel on the skin, or placing pellets under the skin.
