Testosterone plays a big role in building muscles, when you have low testosterone you will have loss of muscle mass. There are some things that you can do to sustain muscle and avoid the effects of weakness from low testosterone.
Testosterone is the hormone in males that is there to help develop muscle mass, when your testosterone levels are low your muscles will turn to fat. With low testosterone levels the estrogen hormone takes over and puts fat in the chest and abdomen area.
In 2012 there was a publication in the journal Current Diabetes Reviews regarding a review of low testosterone in obese men. The review show that men with low testosterone have a increase of fat specifically in the abdomen area. Fat cells that are in the belly produce enzymes called aromatase. The aromatase enzyme converts testosterone to estrogen. An increase in estrogen will then produce more fat in the chest, hips, and thigh areas. In addition to a increase in body fat, low testosterone can also cause depression, lethargy, and fatigue.
If you have started to notice low testosterone symptoms such as losing muscle mass there are things you can do to build your muscle mass back and increase your testosterone levels.
Weight loss is one of the best ways to increase testosterone levels and prevent muscle loss. Having a exercise program that incorporates aerobic (biking, brisk walking) and strength training. Eat a healthy balanced diet and get a proper amount of sleep.
In some cases exercise and diet are not enough to increase testosterone levels. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment option for men suffering from low testosterone levels. The treatment helps with weight loss, building muscle mass, energy levels and a over all back to normal feeling.
If you have been feeling irritable, tired, and noticed a decrease in muscle and a increase of body fat speak with your doctor. You doctor can give you a simple blood test to determine your testosterone levels and create a course of action to restore your testosterone levels with testosterone replacement therapy.
