Low Testosterone – Symptoms and Consequences of Ignoring the Condition


Men over 30 are constantly bombarded with recommendations about checking their blood pressure, testing for prostate cancer, checking cholesterol and the list goes on and one. After a 20 year full court press by the media it is "OK" and quite in vogue to talk openly about erectile dysfunction and millions of men have no problem talking to their doctor about ED but mention testosterone and suddenly you enter the world of the taboo . Thanks to the media and governments anti-station campaigns many men view testosterone boosting as an evil and dangerous proposition.

If you are over 30 and experiencing any of these issues: Decrease in libido (sex drive), low fertility, erectile dysfunction, headaches, low energy, high stress, Depression, increase in body fat, decrease in weight, sadness, grumpiness, low immune system, memory loss and reduced muscle strength. You should talk to your doctor about getting your testosterone levels checked. Unfortunately, many men have no problem treating the symptoms of low testosterone individually but never treat the root problem, low testosterone. They end up on Viagra, anti-depressants, drink 5 cups of coffee just to get going. They are grumpy and take more medications to help control their weight, when all along they just need normal testosterone levels.

Many men are also too embarrassed to talk about a low testosterone condition with their partner or doctor as they believe it's a sign they are losing their masculinity. Don't be! It's one of best things you can do for your health. People who care about you will not judge you for a medical condition that is beyond your control.

Unfortunately, life and society are killers of testosterone much in the same way that smoking and fast food lead to cancer; stress, age, diet, alcohol, monogamy and a long list of other factors lead to low testosterone. In many cases even the slightest rebalancing of your levels can lead to an exponential increase in a man's overall quality of life. Benefits of returning testosterone levels to normal include; increased sex drive and better erections, increased bone density, improved mood, better concentration, increased muscle mass, and the list goes on and on. Many doctors are now looking at testosterone therapy as a powerful tool in the prevention of cancer and Alzheimer's.

So if you are over 30, put aside the propaganda and negative stereotypes about "steroids" and have a serious conversation with you doctor about your testosterone levels, you may find a massive improvement in the quality of your life and never have a need for anti depressants of erectile dysfunction medications.
