Low testosterone is a common medical condition that can eventually cause men several complications as they get older. That’s why–similar to prostate and colon checks–men need to have their testosterone levels checked as they progress toward middle age. Usually, after men reach the age of 30, their testosterone levels start to decline gradually by 1% every year, leaving them at a higher risk of developing low testosterone. Depending on their lifestyle, genetics, and other potential factors, men’s testosterone levels can drop below the normal parameters for their age, which can cause them to exhibit several unwanted debilitating symptoms such as:
- Decreased muscle mass
- Low sex drive
- Joint inflammation
- Weakened bone density
- Impaired cognitive function
- Reduced strength
If the appropriate treatment isn’t administered, low testosterone can gradually lead to other serious medical conditions such as osteoporosis, erectile dysfunction, obesity, accelerated sarcopenia (muscle wasting), and diabetes.
Nowadays, many men in their 30s and 40s are still relatively young, allowing them to age more gracefully than their grandparents. However, when forced to live with severe medical complications caused by low testosterone, men will succumb to accelerated aging that eventually shortens their lifespan.
For men with low testosterone to remain healthy and active as they get older, they will need to return their testosterone to normal levels and reverse their low testosterone symptoms. The best way to achieve those goals is by working with licensed medical professionals that can provide helpful recommendations and appropriate treatment to properly assist men in raising their testosterone levels.
