WHAT IS LOW TESTOSTERONE?

Low testosterone is a term used by doctors to describe an abnormal level of the hormone testosterone.

On average, a healthy male will have testosterone levels that range from 350 ng/dL to 1,000 ng/dL. Males who have testosterone levels between these two ranges are considered to have “normal” levels of testosterone.

When your testosterone levels fall below these ranges, it is considered as “low testosterone” or “low-t.” Having low testosterone can have a serious effect on men not only physically, but psychologically as well.

Low Testosterone can be caused by numerous different medical conditions or by the use of some drugs. However, the most common cause of low testosterone is the process of aging.

Most men will experience a loss of 1% of testosterone every year. Typically after age 30, most men will see a gradual decrease in testosterone.

Here is a list of a few medical conditions that can cause low testosterone:

  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Cirrhosis
  • Genetic Causes
  • Heart Failure
  • Hemochromatosis
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Metabolic Disorders
  • Obesity
  • Prolactinoma
  • Type 2 diabetes

Low testosterone can cause very vague or very distinct symptoms. Every male that experiences low testosterone is different, therefore, each individual may have different symptoms. Levels of testosterone, as well as age, are a vital factor when it comes to symptoms of testosterone.

Here is a list of symptoms from low testosterone:

  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Decreased Libido 
  • Decreased Energy
  • Decreased Strength
  • Decreased Bone Density
  • Increased Body Fat
  • Increased Hair Loss
  • Memory Loss
  • Growth Of Breast Tissue
  • Changes In Sleep Patterns
  • Psychological Changes (Depression, Motivation, Etc.)

REAL PATIENTS. REAL STORIES.

Dr. Thomas, I can’t thank you enough! It wasn’t easy for me to confront my low testosterone diagnosis but you made everything simple and easy. It’s amazing how much different I feel after my low testosterone treatment. I feel more energized, stronger, and younger. I feel like a totally new man! Thank you!

John, Low Testosterone Patient

I would have never guessed I would fall under the “low testosterone” category, but here I am. Dr. Thomas is my general physician and I told him I had been feeling more fatigued, less motivated, and weaker for the past two months. He recommended I take a blood test to see if I had low testosterone. Sure enough, when my results came back I had low testosterone. I’m currently on week 4 of treatment and I feel great. The appointments are super fast, Dr. Thomas + Staff are always great, and most importantly I feel like myself 15 years ago.

Zach M., Low Testosterone Patient

I knew I had low testosterone when it came to my sex drive. I went to see Dr. Martens and he got me on low testosterone therapy as soon as my blood test came back. Appointments are easy and fast. And the best part is that it was covered by my insurance!

Adam Daniels, Low Testosterone Patient

I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Texas Low-T staff. They’ve made my low testosterone treatment so enjoyable that I don’t mind going in for my appointments. It has only been 3 weeks and I already feel a difference in my energy levels and my strength is coming back to me. Thank you to everyone at Texas Low-T!

Sam P., Low Testosterone Patient
