    Icon4 How do I Know if I Have a Testosterone Deficiency?

    Testosterone deficiencies have many different symptoms. Here are the most notable ones:

    Low Sex Drive (especially in the morning)

    Trouble Sleeping at Night

    Decreased Concentration

    Trouble Recovering from Vigorous Exercise

    Excess Android Fat (this is fat in the abdomen, chest and back of the neck)

    Low Energy

    Salt and Sugar Cravings

    Mood Changes

    Decrease in Bone Mass

    Depression

    Decreased Muscle Mass and Strength

    Less Pleasurable Erections

    Decrease in Ejaculate Volume



    If you have 1 or many of these symptoms there is a good chance you have some sort of testosterone deficiency. The next step is to get lab work done in order to confirm these symptoms are coming from low testosterone.

    Dont worry though testosterone optimization can alleviate these symptoms and improve your overall health.

    Hope this helps!

    One sign is if you do not have an erection upon waking in the morning. Once you begin TRT, you'll be waking up with a steam pipe again like when you were a teenager.

    Re: How do I Know if I Have a Testosterone Deficiency?

    As someone whose natural test production is a scant 153, I can tell you that your entire life will improve when you get on TRT. Not all of it is immediate - some changes take up to a year or longer - but the biggest changes are pretty quick. You will start being happy you are you again. You will start to enjoy life again. Things will matter again. I will never go back to the state I was in before, never ever.

    If you are on the fence about this, realize it is most likely the apathy you have as part of having Low T and just do it. You will forever be grateful you did.

    I think I may have low testosterone level. I don't have as strong of a boner as I once did when I wake up. I also tire quickly, especially after working out. I don't know about the fat, actually I'm pretty fit. My question is, is it possible to have low testosterone levels at only 21 years of age?

    Re: How do I Know if I Have a Testosterone Deficiency?

    The number 1 point said low sex drive especially in the morning. If the opposite is true, does that mean that my testosterone level is okay? And what do I get when my testosterone level is normal or higher than normal, does that prevent problems with the prostate? But the last point about the decreased amount of ejaculation, isn't that connected with age? When you get older, the produced semen gets lesser and I think that is normal.

    A simple blood test will tell you your testosterone level. It is always highest in the morning, so try to take it around 11am. Doctors want an AM test, so 11AM is perfect.

    No fasting is needed unless you are doing a full blood workup.

    Cybrsage is correct. Get a blood test done to include both free and total testosterone. There is a range based on age groups that will indicate if you have low testosterone. Most Drs will only prescribe you testosterone if you are at the low end of the scale.

    Some symptoms of low testosterone include low energy levels, mood swings, irritability, poor concentration, reduced muscle strength, and low sex drive.
