Men lose testosterone as they age; it’s a common part of the aging process for men beginning in their forties. And the symptoms that accompany the loss in testosterone range from simply difficult to sometimes chronic and debilitating.
Loss of Testosterone: The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Symptoms of Testosterone Loss
One of the most advertised symptoms of testosterone loss is a man’s decreasing libido. His sexual activity begins to diminish and with it goes his ability to perform at his peak level. He could also find that it is incredibly difficult to build new muscle, even easier (unfortunately) to pack on the pounds of fat—especially in his midsection. He could lose the strength in his bones, and this could make the bones more susceptible to fractures.
The prostrate could become enlarged, and he could experience problems urinating. Fatigue is another extremely common symptom: He might feel overly sluggish and tired during the day. But then he may find that regardless how tired he felt during the day it is still unfortunately hard to both fall asleep and stay asleep at night (sluggishness and tiredness could contribute to a performance drop at work or in other activities that require concentration).
Also, as the testosterone levels plummet the cortisol levels fluctuate, and these fluctuations can disrupt the ability of the neurotransmitters in the brain (when neurotransmitters are disrupted it could cause unexpected confusion and mental fogginess). And last but not least, the man experiencing a loss in testosterone levels could begin to lose his hair; the hair follicles are unable to regenerate.
While all of these symptoms are debilitating and difficult on their own it’s also important to remember that these symptoms could also contribute to more serious health conditions and even serious mental health conditions; depression and anxiety are common among people experiencing testosterone loss.
