If you are experiencing any of these symptoms of low testosterone, it is likely that your body is not producing enough of this hormone.

- Inability to sustain an erection
- Low or lowered sex drive
- Low energy
- Less body hair than is normal
- A depressed or lowered mood
- Weight gain
- Loss of bone mass

Low testosterone causes a number of problems, and while we not do have a complete understanding of what causes low testosterone in all men, a condition called hypogonadism may be to blame for your symptoms. If you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms of Low T, it is important that you contact MDforMen to discuss these problems, discuss having tests done, and attempt to pinpoint what causes low testosterone in your body.
