Some signs of low testosterone relative to the mind are depression, reduced self-confidence, the inability to sleep, and difficulty concentrating. Some physical signs of low testosterone are declining muscle and bone mass, fatigue, increased body fat, hot flashes, and tender or swollen breasts. Low levels of testosterone may also cause people to experience a lower sex drive, difficulty sustaining erections, and fewer spontaneous erections.
Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women. In men, the testicles primarily make testosterone. In women, ovaries and adrenal glands make a smaller amount than in men. As men age the testosterone levels lower and the estrogen levels get higher. The opposite is for women; estrogen levels drop and testosterone levels get higher.
Testosterone plays a major role in the sex drive and function for men. It also signals to the body to make new red blood cells, ensures that muscles and bones stay strong and healthy, and determines the distribution of fat. Testosterone levels in men drastically increase during puberty and begin to decline after the age of 30. It is crucial to the overall health to understand testosterone.
