Understanding Low Testosterone (And Why It's Not the End of the World)

A conversation that remains uncommon within our society is that pertaining to testosterone

A conversation that remains uncommon within our society is that pertaining to testosterone. For men, testosterone is the hormone that supports much of what our culture considers to be masculine; strength, virility, and energy. Without these, men can be left feeling anxious or insecure. This, however, is problematic, because testosterone levels naturally decline in the male body after the age of thirty. This is where many stereotypes of middle age (and the associated mid-life crisis) occur from.

Testosterone begins production during puberty and supports the development of both physical and mental attributes, particularly sexual development and physical appearance, such as height and mass. More specifically, it encourages the growth of muscles, the density of bones, hair growth, and sperm production. The amount of testosterone produced by the male body suddenly rises during puberty before eventually plateauing. Then, typically around the age of thirty, it begins to drop.

This drop in testosterone is gradual. The male body eventually starts to produce less of the hormone, decreasing by a small percentage each year. What expectedly occurs during this descent is the reversal and change of many physical and mental qualities that testosterone once supported. Such changes include:

  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Weight gain
  • Lower libido
  • Hair loss
  • Mood changes
  • Fatigue

For a man, these changes can have a substantial impact on confidence levels. It becomes more difficult to sustain muscle mass and strength, as well as an erection too, each of which are qualities associated with a socio-cultural and traditional concept of masculinity, that is physical ability and sex drive. The problem with this is that decreasing hormone production, especially testosterone, occurs naturally, making the stereotypical concepts we share problematic.

Fortunately, it is possible to support your body’s hormone production as it undergoes these changes. Medical technology has developed far enough that replacing and balancing hormone levels within the body is an easy task. Established services, such as Balance My Hormones, are able to improve testosterone levels within the body, supporting its natural production and helping to improve the health and wellness of those in need.

Seeking to manage decreasing testosterone levels can be a huge relief for many men, helping them to regain confidence in themselves, as well as preventing a mid-life crisis. Additionally, if methods of support are not able to encourage your body to return to previous higher levels of testosterone production, there are ongoing options, such as testosterone replacement therapy, that can supplement natural production.

For some men, few changes occur, or do so at such a gradual rate that it is a much more manageable change. And, while it remains problematic for some, especially those who struggle with depression or extreme hormone changes, such as hypogonadism, it is an experience all men share at some point in their life and there is plenty of support available.

So, while it may be difficult to experience the physical and mental changes associated with ageing, especially as they can leave us feeling weaker and less “manly”, it is important to remember that you are not alone and that it isn’t the end of the world.

The researchers found that the dose of testosterone required to produce different effects in the body varied widely. The influence of testosterone and estradiol also differed. As the testosterone gel dose was reduced, the scientists showed, reductions in lean mass, muscle size, and leg-press strength resulted from decreases in testosterone itself. In contrast, increases in body fat were due to the related declines in estradiol. Both testosterone and estradiol levels were associated with libido and erectile function. Like my workmate at huntington tree service , he's having problem in dealing with testosterone.
