Do you have low testosterone?
A simple 10-question test will help us assess and diagnose low testosterone levels in your body.

Low testosterone, or hypogonadism, is a medical condition that occurs when the male body does not produce enough testosterone. Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone responsible for the development of male reproductive tissues and secondary sexual characteristics. Testosterone also plays a vital role in maintaining bone density, muscle mass and red blood cell production.

A decrease in testosterone levels can be caused by many factors, including:

  • Age: As men age, their testosterone levels decline. This decline usually begins in a man's 40s and 50s and continues throughout his life.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions can lead to low testosterone levels, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and HIV/AIDS.
  • Medications: Certain medications, such as opioids and corticosteroids, can lower testosterone levels.
  • Damage to the testicles: Damage to the testicles, such as from injury, infection, or chemotherapy, can lead to low testosterone levels.
  • Hormonal disorders: Certain hormonal disorders, such as pituitary or hypothalamic dysfunction, can disrupt testosterone production.
  • Genetics: Certain genetic conditions, such as Klinefelter syndrome, can lead to low testosterone levels.
  • Lifestyle: Unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, lack of sleep and high levels of stress can all contribute to low testosterone levels.

Low testosterone levels are relatively common, especially in older men. About 25% of men over the age of 30 experience a decline in testosterone levels, with this percentage increasing with age.

Low testosterone has a significant impact on a man's health and well-being. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depression, decreased muscle mass and bone density. Low testosterone can also lead to the development of other health problems, such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
