Testosterone is the male sex hormone. Testosterone hormone levels are crucial to normal male sexual functions and development. During puberty, testosterone helps boys develop features, such as deeper voice, muscle strength, and facial and body hair. Men need testosterone to produce sperm. Generally, testosterone levels decrease with age, so older men tend to have lower testosterone levels.
What is Low Testosterone?
Low testosterone (Low-T) is a condition wherein the testes don’t produce enough testosterone (the male sex hormone). The American Urology Association identifies Low-T as less than 300 ng/dL. Low sex drive, moodiness and irritability, erectile dysfunction, depression, and fatigue may accompany Low-T. There are many possible causes
