Causes And Symptoms Of Low Testosterone
Testosterone is essential for a man’s complete development, it is made by the testicles and is responsible for the development of muscles, strength, bone density, fertility and sex drive. It also has a direct affect on male pattern fat distribution, red blood cell count and bone mass.
The reduction of testosterone production by the testicles is called hypogonadism and is generally caused by the lack of stimulation by the pituitary gland on the testes.
In a normal, healthy man, his testosterone levels are at their peak during his 20’s, by the time he reaches 30, the levels will start to naturally reduce by around 1% a year
Correct Or ‘Normal’ Testosterone Levels
An average testosterone level in men should be between 300 and 1000 nano grams per decilitre (ng/dl), any lower than 300 ng/dl is generally considered to be low testosterone and should not be considered normal even when taking the ageing process into account
Causes Of Low Testosterone
Some conditions responsible for low testosterone levels include
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Hormonal Conditions
- Chronic Medical Conditions
It is crucial to determine if your low testosterone levels are simply the result of getting older or if you are suffering from hypogonadism
Symptoms Of Hypogonadism include
- Changes In Sleep Patterns, Quality – The Onset Of Insomnia
- Increased Body Fat
- Reduced Muscle Tone
- Sleep Apnea
- Reduced Libido and Sexual Response
It has been proven that taking a natural testosterone boosting supplement can certainly help improve the symptoms of Hypogonadism, wether it can actually help reverse the normal declining levels caused by the ageing process is unclear, some suffers have reported some good improvements in sex drive along with a reduction in body fat..
