Whether you’re online, watching TV, or reading a magazine, there’s a lot of talk about low testosterone levels these days. But what is testosterone and why does it matter if your levels drop? Let’s clear up the confusion so you can have a better understanding of testosterone and why so many people are turning to testosterone therapy.
Testosterone is the primary androgenic hormone and is necessary to maintain your overall health and well-being. It plays a key role in the development of male sex organs and is vital in the production of secondary sexual characteristics, including body and facial hair growth, deepening of the voice, and increased muscle mass and bone density. This means that, without testosterone, male sex organs won’t develop properly, male body and facial hair may not develop, and problems caused by too much estrogen, the primary female sex hormone, can arise.
Testosterone levels reach their peak in men at around 20 years old. After that, testosterone levels gradually decline – about one percent a year after you reach the age of 30.
Low T Concerns
When your testosterone levels fall too low, it can create a deficiency within your body. This imbalance can lead to low T symptoms, including low energy, difficulty losing weight, a reduced sex drive, and depression. These issues can range from minor to chronic, but when you notice they are affecting your daily life, testosterone therapy can be a good option.
