Low Testosterone Before Age 50?

Testosterone levels in men are at their peak from teenager into their twenties. When men reach their thirties there will be a gradual decline in testosterone levels. However, no need to worry guys your testosterone level won’t drop to zero like it does for women during menopause.

If you notice that you are experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, low sex drive, and loss of muscle mass you might have low testosterone levels.  Low testosterone is more common in men in their fifties it can still affect younger men. The good news is low testosterone in younger men is treatable with TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). If you are a younger man and experiences symptoms of low testosterone make a appointment with your doctor to discuss TRT and how it will work for you.

If you suspect low testosterone, the first step is to see your primary care physician. Your doctor can diagnose low testosterone with a blood test.

If your blood test reveals low testosterone (usually defined as a level lower than 300 ng/dL), the doctor may treat you or refer you to a specialist, such as an urologist or endocrinologist.

If you have low testosterone symptoms, it’s important to see your doctor. Then, your doctor can rule out potentially more serious causes of your symptoms, such as high blood pressure or a thyroid problem, and offer treatment that can improve your energy and quality of life.
