Signs of Low Testosterone
It might be subtle, or written off as one of the signs of aging. The signs of low-T happen to younger men as well and often manifests itself as reduced sex drive and performance (erectile dysfunction), increased body fat, fatigue, irritability, and depression, loss of energy, declining muscle mass, and weight gain.
Men, if you are experiencing the symptoms of low testosterone, our men’s health doctor can review available treatment options for low testosterone and ED.
