Mood Changes

Depression, anxiety, and other negative mood changes are all common in men with low testosterone levels. The link between low testosterone and mental health problems is not entirely understood, though we do know that men who have low testosterone levels are more likely to be depressed than men with normal testosterone levels. In fact, men who have low testosterone levels are four times more likely to suffer from the symptoms of depression. 

Men with low testosterone often report feeling constantly fatigued, unmotivated, and that they have a general feeling of sadness that prevents them from participating in and enjoying the activities they used to love. Moreover, depression can cause an individual to have difficulty falling and staying asleep, which in turn exacerbates the symptoms of depression and lowers the amount of testosterone in the body.

Many men find that they experience anxiety in different forms along with their depression. Social anxiety and a general feeling of being on edge are the most common, though anxiety can manifest itself in a variety of different ways:

  • Excessive worrying
  • Frequent agitation
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Muscle tension
  • Panic attacks

Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction is one of the most troubling physical symptoms of low testosterone, and it can manifest itself in a variety of ways. Some men experience difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection, while others experience a severe decline in their libido. If you are experiencing either of these symptoms, or a combination of the two, then get in touch with Men’s Vitality Center. While it is understandably difficult for some men to speak with a physician about these issues, testosterone replacement therapy can often begin to relieve these symptoms in as few as three weeks.
