5 Signs You May Be Experiencing a Drop in Testosterone

Article Reviewed By The Medical Faculty and Advisory Review Board

Testosterone is very important to the human body, and specifically, to the male human body. It impacts bodily functions from your muscle mass to your sexual development to your appearance.

So what happens when your body isn’t quite producing enough testosterone? This post will discuss symptoms of low testosterone (or T) levels to keep an eye out for.

Males of all ages can experience low – or changing – testosterone levels, but it is more common as you age.

About 2 out of 10 men over the age of 60 experience low testosterone levels, while that number increases to 3 out of 10 men over the age of 70.

Here at EvexiPEL, we talk to a lot of men experiencing an imbalance of testosterone. More often than not, it’s solvable with our patented hormone pellet therapy.

But for us to help you get your T levels back on track, you have to come to us with a problem. And for you to come to us with a problem, it helps to know some of the symptoms of a testosterone imbalance.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Signs of slightly low testosterone levels can be subtle, but symptoms will increase in severity if your testosterone levels drop more significantly.

1. Decreased Sex Drive

This sign can happen naturally as men age, but if you are under sixty and your sex drive seems to be abnormally low, this could mean your T levels are off.

2. Hair Loss

Once again, hair loss can be a fairly normal function of aging, so this one can be a little hard to detect as a symptom of low testosterone.

However, one of the functions that testosterone has is hair production – so a halt in hair production could be a sign of not enough T being produced in your body.

If you are experiencing hair loss along with other symptoms of low T, that could be a warning sign.

3. Erectile Dysfunction

Testosterone doesn’t exactly cause erections on its own, but it is an important component in that bodily function.

The hormone testosterone stimulates brain receptors to produce nitric oxide, which is the molecule responsible for triggering the chemical reactions that lead to an erection.

There are other health issues that can lead to erectile difficulties, so if you’re experiencing this, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have low T levels. If you’re unsure of the cause of your difficulty with erections, we’d be more than happy to consult!

4. Extreme Fatigue

Fatigue is a prevalent symptom of hormonal imbalance, and low testosterone levels are no exception.

If you’re getting plenty of sleep, and aren’t undergoing any significant lifestyle changes, but are still experiencing unusually low energy levels, it’s possible this could be related to a testosterone imbalance.

5. More Body Fat

Low testosterone levels will often impact your physical appearance, and one of the most obvious manifestations of this is in an increase in body fat.

Specifically, some men with low T levels will develop gynecomastia, which is an increase in breast tissue, resulting from an imbalance of testosterone and estrogen.
