There are plenty of health issues a person can suffer from that they are either unaware of or find it too embarrassing to talk about. For men, one of those health issues that is rarely discussed or given attention is low testosterone. Men who are suffering from low testosterone, also referred to as Low T, can have a variety of symptoms that affect their day to day life, which is why it’s so important to recognize the signs and seek help.

While it's normal for a man's testosterone production to slow down with age, it can become too slow which will cause Low T. If you’re wondering if you may have Low T, you’ll want to take a look at these common warning signs that should signal a visit to your doctor.


DECREASED DESIRE TO HAVE SEX AND ISSUES WITH ERECTIONS

This is usually one of the most obvious signs to watch for. Men who suffer from Low T typically have a lower sex drive. It won't just gradually decrease over time; instead, there is usually a very drastic drop in their sex drive.

Another problem men can experience in this area is that they may have difficulty achieving an erection, even if their sex drive is at a normal level. On the flip side, they may find they have spontaneous erections for no reason at all. Of course, issues with erections don't necessarily mean you have Low T, there are a number of other health problems that could be the cause.


PROBLEMS WITH SLEEP

For those who typically have no problem falling and staying asleep, Low T can affect this area too. Low T is known to cause insomnia and even sleep apnea.


PHYSICAL CHANGES TO YOUR BODY START TO OCCUR

Low T can also begin to cause physical changes to your body, which can also happen rather quickly. Because your body is producing less testosterone, you may notice hot flashes, an increase in body fat, your bones becoming fragile, a decrease in muscle mass, increased fatigue, breast tissue that becomes swollen and tender, and a slower metabolism.


CHANGES TO YOUR EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING

Often men look for signs of physical changes and completely overlook how Low T may be affecting them emotionally. Because you are producing less testosterone, it is quite common to end up feeling depressed and sad. It can leave you to feel unmotivated, low on energy, give you an inability to focus and concentrate, and leave you with a general sense of emotional un-wellness.


GETTING HELP

If you suspect you have low testosterone, the best solution is to get help right away so you can start feeling better. One option is to consult with Mantality, and have a testosterone test done.  If there is a problem, they can provide you with a variety of treatments. These treatments range from injections to less invasive methods. Mantality is dedicated strictly to treating Low T, which means they are well-versed in diagnosing and treating it.

No matter what route you take, seeking help is encouraged so you can start feeling better and feeling more like your old self again.
