Testosterone and Low T
Testosterone is the main hormone in men produced by the testicles. Testosterone influences a man’s physical appearance; builds muscles, bone mass and contributes to his sexual development and sex drive. Testosterone production decreases with age, with a more significant decline after 40 years old. When Testosterone levels decline too rapidly, men can experience a range of disturbing and uncomfortable symptoms. The medical fraternity commonly labels these symptoms as Andropause symptoms. Low testosterone or often called low T happens when Testosterone levels fall below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).
More Men are affected by Low T nowadays
Several studies have confirmed that testosterone levels in men are lower in recent years as compared to a few decades ago. The cause of this declining trend isn't entirely clear, but evidence suggests that it could be the result of multifaceted factors, contributed by modernization and industrialization – increased in food intake, the decline in food quality, lack of physical exercise, exposure to pollutions and contaminants, increased in
stress level & etc.
Low T is not just about Sexual Performance
Although many could have automatically linked testosterone to sexuality, clinical findings showed that the most common Low T symptom is, in fact, loss of energy. Next is the sign of low motivation, then only follow with libido declines and other symptoms like moodiness and irritability. The feeling of extremely tired and sleepy after lunch is, in fact, a common symptom affecting as high as 40% of men with low testosterone levels.
Men with Type 2 diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome are at higher risks of Low T!
Obesity (overweight), diabetes, and hypertension increase the risk of Low T to DOUBLE!
Research shows that Low T is closely associated with diabetes. National Health Service Diabetes UK reports that 16% of male with type 2 diabetes have lower than normal level of testosterone and an additional of 24% have Testosterones level very close to the bottom level, which totals up to 40% of diabetics have Low T problem.
Studies also show that men who have low T tend to be
• overweight with BMI over 30 kg/m2,
• Have waist circumferences greater than 37 inches
• Have a higher incidence of HbA1C level greater than 6.5%.
