Testosterone is the hormone responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics. It is also important for maintaining muscle mass, adequate levels of red blood cells, bone density, a sense of well-being, and sexual function. It is natural for testosterone production to decline with age, but that does not mean you have low testosterone. In fact, testosterone deficiency (hypogonadism) is experienced by some men as early as their mid-20′s. It is believed that approximately 13 million men in the United States experience testosterone deficiency, with less than 10 percent seeking treatment. When it comes to testosterone levels, there is a wide range of normal. Those experiencing low testosterone may also experience these associated conditions:

  • Fatigue/Loss of Energy
  • Hair Loss
  • Depression/Mood Changes
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Loss of Muscle Mass
  • Reduced Sex Drive
  • Weight Gain
  • Sexual Dysfunction
