What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone made naturally by your body. It is responsible for many sexual characteristics, like:

  • Growth and maturation of the prostate and other male sex organs
  • Development and distribution of male hair, such as facial hair
  • Sex drive and sexual function

But testosterone plays many other roles as well. Some additional effects of testosterone may include:

  • Changes in body muscle mass and strength
  • Changes in fat distribution
  • Changes in mood and energy level
Where does Testosterone come from?

In men, testosterone is made in the testes, the reproductive glands that also make sperm. And the amount of testosterone made by the testes is controlled in the brain by the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland.

When is Testosterone too low?

Low Testosterone, or Low T, is a real medical condition known as hypogonadism.

Low T occurs when a man’s testosterone levels (T levels) have fallen below a level of approximately 300 ng/dL.

T levels between 350 ng/dL and 1200 ng/dL are generally considered in the normal range. The brain and the testes work together to keep testosterone in this range. When levels of testosterone are below the normal range, the brain signals the testes to make more. When there is enough testosterone, the brain signals the testes to make less.

If you have Low Testosterone, treating it is important to your health. The good news is that today men with Low-T can be treated successfully.
What are the symptoms of low Testosterone?

  • Fatigue or decreased energy

  • Sexual dysfunction (weak erections, fewer erections)
  • Depressed mood

  • Hot flashes, sweats
What causes low Testosterone?

Low Testosterone, medically known as hypogonadism, is a real medical condition that can occur for a number of reasons. For example, there could be a signaling problem between your brain and testes that is causing the production of testosterone to drop too low. Low Testosterone can also occur when your body can’t make normal levels of testosterone in the normal range.

Additionally, the Endocrine Society has identified several conditions commonly associated with low Testosterone.

  • End-stage renal disease
  • Moderate-to-severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a lung disease
  • Infertility
  • Osteoporosis
  • Type 2 diabetes
