How to know if you have Low Testosterone Chicago IL

What is testosterone?

  • Testosterone is a hormone made primarily in the testicles in men. Testosterone production increases significantly during puberty, and begins to decline starting at the age 30 at a rate of 1%-10% per year.
  • Testosterone is responsible for a person’s sex drive, sperm production in men, and maintaining bone density.  It also affects the way men store fat in the body, and how red blood cells are produced.  Testosterone levels can affect your mood and energy levels.
  • In young men, testosterone helps to build muscle mass and strength. Once a man reaches 30 years old, testosterone levels naturally decline, resulting in a loss of muscle mass, strength, and self-esteem.
  • In one study, it was found that older men with higher levels of testosterone had less muscle loss. Men that were able to keep adequate levels of the hormone as they aged, had a smaller percentage of loss in lean muscle mass and overall strength.

Researchers have recognized links between low testosterone and certain medical conditions. One study showed that in men over the age of 45, the odds of having low testosterone were:

Recent studies have shown that as men age, they actually lose more muscle mass than women of the same age due to the loss of testosterone.

Obese and overweight men have overall lower testosterone levels compared to their age-related counterparts because excess belly fat is known to convert testosterone to estrogen (a mainly female hormone).   Testosterone optimization can help with excessive belly fat deposition, subsequently increasing available testosterone hormone for the body’s use.
