WHAT IS TESTOSTERONE:
So, what is testosterone? No, it’s not a chemical that causes fits of fury or something artificial just for illegally improving sports performance. Testosterone is actually a natural hormone produced by our bodies from cholesterol. Its responsible for bone growth, muscle size and strength, sperm production and sex drive. It’s also not exclusive to men, with it playing an important role in ovarian function in women.
During puberty for men, testosterone also contributes towards development of the testes, deepening of the voice, and facial hair. Though testosterone is mainly known as a sex hormone there is some evidence that it also has a part to play in mood and brain function for both men and women.
As you can see, if you have very low testosterone levels it could cause issues. Issues including reduced muscle mass, brittle bones, low libido and loss of body hair. In men, low testosterone production can also lead to impotence, reduced sperm count, and an increased breast size.
But what can cause low testosterone? Well, the most common cause is ageing, with levels decreasing by about 2% every year from the age of 30 in most men. There is also the clinical condition, Male Hypogonadism, that can affect men of any age, and is used to describe when the testes don’t produce enough testosterone and levels drop to below what is considered the normal range. This can be caused by many things, including genetic factors, drug use, infections, diabetes, and exposure to environmental toxins.
WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION:
As I mentioned, there are lots of lifestyle factors, sports and age that can lead to reduced testosterone levels. But what do we do if we feel our levels are too low?
Well, symptoms can include irritability and anxiety, a low libido, fatigue, night sweats, poor concentration, and erectile dysfunction. But bear in mind these symptoms can be caused by a range of things and is not always due to low testosterone. But whatever the underlying cause ends up being, if you experience any of those symptoms you should speak to your GP.
If you suffer with type 2 diabetes or are obese, you can also be more prone to suffering from low testosterone. In some cases, a doctor can prescribe testosterone replacement therapy if needed, so it’s always worth discussing your concerns with them.
