What are the symptoms of low testosterone (Low-T)?

It is important to distinguish between a normal decline of testosterone levels and hypogonadism.

Signs and symptoms of low testosterone include:

Although testosterone therapy helps with hypogonadism, whether it helps in the reversal or slowing of normal effects of aging and lower testosterone levels is unclear. Several published research articles have conflicting results and more research is needed to make a final determination about the use of testosterone for healthy aging males.

Is there a test for low testosterone (Low-T)?

The diagnosis of low-T is based on correlating a low blood level (300 ng/dl or below) with symptoms.

Most of the symptoms are very apparent (see above) but some need to be further investigated (such as low bone density).
