Low T (Hypogonadism)
“Low T” or low testosterone is a drop in a man’s hormone levels that may leave him with significant symptoms. The symptoms of low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, are often overlooked because they are mistaken for ordinary signs of aging. Men with below-normal testosterone may experience the following symptoms:
- Decreased interest in sex
- Muscle weakness

- Small or soft testicles
- Reduced bone density
Testosterone is a natural hormone in the human body that is responsible for the development of muscle mass, bone density, sperm production in men, regulation of sex drive (libido), fat distribution and metabolism (burning fat). For men, it is an important hormone and a fundamental building block of a healthy body. Testosterone also plays major roles in cognitive functions, concentration, energy levels, and regulating healthy sleeping habits.
