What Are The Symptoms of Low Testosterone?

By The Vault Team

Testosterone is an important part of everyday bodily function, controlling muscle and bone growth, fat storage, red blood cell production, libido, and more. Normal testosterone levels can range anywhere from 300 to 1,000 ng/dL, and can only be accurately measured through a blood test administered by a specialist or doctor.

Low testosterone (medically referred to as testosterone deficiency or at times hypogonadism) is classified as anything below 300 ng/dL, and affects up to 40% of men.

The symptoms of testosterone deficiency are many and far-reaching. Most commonly reported are changes in mood and energy levels, intimacy desires, and body composition. That said, the effects of low testosterone levels can manifest as any of the following:

  • Physical Symptoms and Signs

    • Reduced energy

    • Reduced endurance

    • Diminished work performance

    • Diminished performance

    • Loss of body hair

    • Reduced beard growth

    • Fatigue

    • Reduced lean muscle mass

    • Obesity

  • Cognitive Symptoms and Signs

    • Depressive symptoms

    • Cognitive dysfunction

    • Reduced motivation

    • Poor concentration

    • Poor memory

    • Irritability

  • Sexual Symptoms and Signs

    • Reduced intimacy desires

    • Reduced sexual function

Because many of these symptoms are also symptoms of other conditions (e.g., depression), men suffering from these symptoms often don't realize they are affected by diagnosable testosterone deficiency. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, it is important that you get tested to understand what exactly you are up against. At Vault, we offer access to testosterone testing and custom treatments personalized to your specific needs. Vault provides access to brand new facilities and a commitment to helping men everywhere. We are here to get you back to doing what you love to do, whatever that may be.
