Low testosterone levels can be a hindrance to the aging man. The affliction, referred to as hypogonadism, can be the reason for a variety of symptoms, including weight gain, low libido and mood changes. It’s important for men to keep tabs on their physical and mental health as they get older. z
If you are noticing a difference in your body and mood, you may be suffering from low testosterone levels. Luckily, Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center offers testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), a proven way to help get your body and mind back to where it used to be.

What is Testosterone?
A full chest of hair and a deep voice aren’t just things certain men are gifted with. These common male traits are the product of a hormone in the body called testosterone. A man has peak testosterone levels in his body during his teen years. When puberty hits, it’s what makes a man a man, physically. But once men hit 30, their levels of testosterone begin to decline each year.
Low Sex Drive
Is your significant other beginning to complain about the lack of intimacy in your marriage? Although there are many factors that can lead to a low sex drive, low testosterone levels have been tied to a low libido. In a Massachusetts study, researchers analyzed a group of men with an average age of 47. All of the men were diagnosed with low sex drives. Researchers found approximately 28% of them had low testosterone levels.
Loss of Muscle Mass
Perhaps you’ve been working out at the gym on a routine basis and can’t seem to build more muscle. No matter how hard you go, your body just stays the same. This problem could be a result of low testosterone levels.
In a study published by the journal Current Diabetes Reviews, a 2012 report revealed that low testosterone increases fat deposits in the belly of the obese. How does this happen? Aromatase, which is an enzyme caused by fat cells, changes testosterone to estrogen, which leads to more fatty deposits in the chest, hips and thighs.
You find yourself feeling less in tune with the world and you don’t know why. Negative feelings have begun to hamper your positive outlook. If you find yourself losing your motivation and feeling more depressed, this may be attributed to low testosterone levels. Women often experience similar changes during menopause when their estrogen levels decrease.
