Testosterone levels decrease with age and can cause symptoms like depression and lack of sexual desire. In this situation, one possibility is to follow a testosterone replacement therapy. So how can you tell if this is the answer to your condition?
Testosterone is responsible for the characteristics of virility in men. In fact, it is known as the male hormone, produced by the testicles in men and helps maintain both muscle mass and the strength of your muscles, in addition to the density of their bones. It also helps with the distribution of fat in certain areas of the body, stimulates the production of red blood cells and sperm and increases sexual desire.
How can you tell if there is any relationship between your testosterone and your general condition or problems?
Although the only way to know if your testosterone levels are low is through a blood test, pay attention to the following signs and symptoms, which do not arise suddenly or all together, but can occur gradually, as the years pass (and not have to be all):
- Decreased sexual desire
- Decreased pubic hair or body hair in general
- Reduction in size of testicles
- Decreased stature or bone thinning
- Reduced muscle mass and strength
- Waves of heat and sweating ( hot flashes)
- Depression and sadness
- Problems sleeping
- Decreased ability to concentrate and memory
What is testosterone replacement therapy?
As its name implies, is incorporated into the body to replace the testosterone that the body does not produce or not produce enough.
This is very different to illegal steroids used by some athletes, since in these cases often contain excessive amounts of testosterone often combined with other drugs that can be very harmful.
