Low Testosterone Symptoms

Low Testosterone Symptoms in Men

While the signs and symptoms of low testosterone in babies or boys are usually obvious, the signs and symptoms in adult males can be much more subtle. Testosterone levels normally decline with age, although there is some debate as to how much of a decrease is expected and normal. Similarly, it could be debated that some of the low testosterone symptoms in older men are normal and are simply an expected part of aging.
Some possible symptoms of low testosterone in men might include:
The younger the man, the more obvious and unacceptable the symptoms might be -- mostly, because they are unexpected in young men. However, any such symptoms occurring in excess of what would be normal for a particular age should be considered "red flags" for low testosterone.
Some people may wonder about the link between low testosterone and a low sperm count. While a low sperm count isn't really a low testosterone symptom -- at least in the sense that it is not caused by the problem -- it is something that sometimes occurs along with low testosterone. There are some medical problems that cause low testosterone and can also affect sperm production.

Final Thoughts

If you have been noticing some symptoms that you believe might be caused by low testosterone, talk to your healthcare provider. A simple blood test can check your levels and can confirm or deny your suspicions. Because of the often-vague nature of low testosterone in adult men, this condition should not be diagnosed and treated based on symptoms alone, without checking testosterone levels.
