What Are Low Testosterone Symptoms
Testosterone is one of the most important hormones in both the male and female bodies for keeping them strong and healthy. When these levels drop due to aging, symptoms will appear naturally. Here are some very important questions one should know the answers to when considering testosterone replacement therapy (TRT):
- What are the symptoms of low testosterone?
- Are low testosterone symptoms in men different for males as they are for females?
- When can a person expect to begin feeling issues arising from low T that can begin affecting their lives?
What are symptoms of low testosterone:
|Aches and pains in
|Inability to reach
|Fatigue||Inability to fantasize||Loss of memory|
|Lethargy||High cholesterol levels||Lack of concentration|
|No energy||High triglyceride
|Lack of focus|
|Feelings of gloom||Low bone mineral
|A weak immunity|
|Depression||Osteoporosis||Inability to heal well|
|Anxiety||An unhealthy heart||Sickness (colds and
|Agitation||Stroke or heart attack||Nails that do not grow|
|Mood swings||Diabetes||Shrinking organs|
|Emotional instability||A haggard appearance||Difficulty with
restoration of cells
|No sex drive||Sagging skin||Poor sleep|
|Erectile dysfunction||Wrinkles||Sleep disturbances|
|Hot flashes||Crow’s feet||Night sweats|
Many of these symptoms may sound familiar because all people will experience most of them to some degree as they age. The differences are in the severity of the issues and whether or not a person loses their quality of life because of them. That is when testosterone replacement therapy can help the patient to be able to enjoy their life, their relationships and the activities that they love to do, despite how old they are.
Men and women will experience the same symptoms except for ones that deal with the reproductive system because biology is different for each gender. Other than that, both sexes must deal with the issues of aging and depleting hormone levels.
When will low testosterone symptoms in women begin and when will low testosterone symptoms in men begin? This will all depend upon the individual person, basic biology, genes and how well they take care of themselves by living a healthy lifestyle such as sleeping enough hours, eating the right kinds of healthy foods (staying away from unhealthy choices), exercising appropriately, adhering to moderate alcohol consumption, if any and never smoking.
Symptoms Of Low T In Men And Women
Many of the symptoms of low T in men and women will occur – it is just a matter of time. Usually both sexes begin to feel some issues due to aging by the time they are 30 years old. Ailments will differ amongst patients and will occur at different times in their life cycle. It is extremely difficult to pin point when a person will experience a decrease in their immunity, for example or when they will begin to get wrinkles and sagging skin that makes them look older, but eventually, it will happen.
Research does share that a person will start to feel symptoms over 30. This is the time when hormonal levels begin to deplete naturally as Mother Nature dictates. It is TRT that will help the symptoms to stay at bay a little longer.
Some patients that begin TRT will not experience anything negative over 30 because their hormones will not started to deplete at that age; however, they will most likely start to feel symptoms over 40. This is normally when feelings of lethargy and body pain starts to set in. A person may gain weight and have difficulty losing it despite dieting or exercise. Males will usually experience weight gain around the abdominal area. Women will see excess fat and cellulite around the hips and thighs.
Symptoms of low testosterone will start to begin sometime over 30 years old.
Symptoms over 50 will often consist of greater amount of wrinkles and sagging skin, higher cholesterol levels, lower immunity and slower metabolism. Weight gain and muscle loss is typical at this age and people need to start becoming more and more health conscious. They need to consider the kinds of foods they eat, the exercise they do and the amount of sleep that they get to stay heart healthy.
For most men and women, symptoms over 60 are extremely common. People may look younger and feel younger than their biological age; however, their cells and tissues do not regenerate as quickly as they used to, their skin elasticity is not as strong, they do not have the energy, vitality and stamina to exercise like they uses to and they cannot keep up with those in younger age brackets than they.
The following graph is by no means what every male and female will experience, but it gives an idea of the different levels of severity of symptoms of low testosterone in women and men that will occur at different ages in one’s life cycle.
Levels of severity of symptoms of low testosterone in men and in women
Kingsberg Medical has worked with a countless number of people over 30 from across the United States who tested to have low T. We can try to make it clear what issues a person will experience at what age, but for an example, symptoms of low testosterone in men over 40 could be less for one population of males who exercise, eat well and sleep well than for those over 30 who do not take care of themselves and smoke.
The same goes for saying that one person will experience a specific symptom of low testosterone, but another person will not have that same issue. People are all different with varying lifestyle habits and natural biology. Mother Nature is not always fair and will treat people differently.
