Low Testosterone (Low T)

Adult onset of low testosterone can result from disease or damage to the hypothalamus, pituitary gland or testicles. Although testosterone levels drop gradually after age 40, a precipitous drop is not normal and can cause a variety of symptoms.

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Loss of body hair
  • Decreased energy
  • Osteoporosis (thinning bones)
  • Weakness
