Low Testosterone and Men's Health
Serum and Free Testosterone levels drop in men as we age. In some men, there is enough of a drop, to cause noticeable symptoms. Often referred to on TV or radio commercials as "Low-T", these symptoms generally begin to become noticeable in your mid to late 30's. These include decreased vigor and libido, depressive moods, decreased muscle mass. decreased strength, decreased bone density, and sometimes even hot flashes. Diabetes, thyroid issues, obesity, and some medications can further facilitate this drop in testosterone levels.
