What is Low-T?
Low testosterone, or male hypogonadism, is a condition in which the body doesn’t produce enough testosterone — the hormone that plays a key role in masculine development and ongoing health.
Testosterone is the hormone that contributes to male sexual arousal, erection and ejaculation. Low levels of testosterone can be a cause of erectile dysfunction.
Low testosterone levels inhibit more than sexual function. Testosterone contributes to red blood cell production, muscle mass and bone strength. It is a factor in mood, clarity of thought and concentration.
In adult males, hypogonadism may alter certain masculine physical characteristics and impair normal reproductive function. Low testosterone can also cause mental and emotional changes. As testosterone decreases, some men may experience symptoms similar to those of menopause in women.
