Testosterone is a vital hormone in the male body. It is responsible for the development of behavioral traits, muscle mass, body hair growth, metabolism, and heart health. Testosterone levels rise to a peak during puberty and then level off. So, what happens once an essential hormone in controlling bodily functions starts to go missing? After a few years, testosterone levels begin to decrease, putting many into the dangers of low testosterone levels.
Roughly, 39% of men over the age 45 have low testosterone, and testosterone levels continue to drop for all men as they grow older. Unfortunately, most men do not know the signs or symptoms of low testosterone or how to recognize it, nor what the risks are of having it.
Men who are experiencing one or more of these symptoms should consider advanced laboratory testing to assess their hormone levels. Many men dismiss the symptoms as side effects of stress, but in the majority of cases it is low testosterone. Low testosterone can affect a man’s quality of life and be a danger to his health. Seeking treatment is the best first step to begin to feeling better and improving overall health. Plus, studies have found that adequate testosterone levels are linked to reduce risk of certain diseases.
