Low Libido (Low Impotence)
Testosterone is one of the major hormones contributing to a man’s sex drive and ability to perform sexually. Factors, such as stress and poor health can effect a man’s sex drive, but it is commonly a result of low testosterone. You should not ignore these symptoms because you may be a candidate for treatment.
Loss of Energy
Testosterone is a necessary component in gaining and retaining lean muscle mass. Some decrease in strength can be attributed to age. Studies show that a relatively inactive man will lose one-half percent of muscle strength each year between the ages of 25 and 60. After 60, the rate of muscle loss doubles every 10 years. However, if you notice a significant change in your strength and endurance, it may be a result of a decrease in testosterone.

Poor Sleep
It is known that prolonged sleep loss can negatively affect a man’s overall health, but did you know that it can also have consequences on testosterone levels? In a 2011 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, testosterone levels in a week of normal sleep were compared to a week of sleep loss. The participants had 8 hours of sleep each night at home for the first week. The second week, they had 3 nights of 10-hour sleep and 8 nights of 5-hour sleep in a sleep laboratory. There was a 15% decrease in levels of testosterone in just one week of sleep loss. Improved testosterone levels can lead to improved quality of sleep.
Depression
Low testosterone can affect your mood – leading to irritability, nervousness, and depression. Higher levels of cortisol (found in men with depression) can lead to lower levels of testosterone.
