Testosterone is the key male sex hormone produced primarily by the testicles. It regulates sperm and blood cell production, muscle strength and mass, and the distribution of fats in your body.

The quantity of testosterone produced by your body shoots up during puberty and starts to decrease after the age of thirty. When testosterone levels fall below healthy levels, the resulting condition is known as hypogonadism.

The causes for low testosterone levels are:

  • Genetic disorder or injury to testicles
  • A thyroid condition, Type 2 diabetes, HIV, Infection, Testicular cancer, or other conditions
  • Alcohol consumption or side effects of medications

Low T levels or low testosterone levels in men leads to:

  • Reduced sex drive- Testosterone is responsible for sex drive in men. Low testosterone levels mean a decrease in libido and decreased sex drive that further leads to infertility.
  • Physical changes- low testosterone levels can lead to several physical changes such as:
    • Decreased muscle mass, muscle strength, and body hair
    • Weak bones and increased fatigue.
    • Increase in body fat and swelling in breast tissue.
  • Disturbance in sleep pattern- Low testosterone levels can cause insomnia or decreased sleep hours.
  • Emotional changes- Low testosterone levels in the body can affect your emotional well-being as well. It can cause irritability and even depression.

Testosterone levels can be naturally increased with regular exercise especially weight lifting, eating healthy and maintaining a healthy weight, taking enough rest, and reducing stress levels.

You can even take supplements to elevate testosterone levels such as D aspartic acid, Zinc, Vitamin D, and magnesium supplements which may promote testosterone production in the testes.

If your testosterone levels become very low in your body, you can opt for testosterone therapy. You need to consult a doctor and have a prescription to buy testosterone drugs.

Depo-testosterone is the brand name of a Pfizer, Inc manufactured androgen steroid medication that treats hypogonadism.

Depo-testosterone is one of the safest medications for the treatment of low testosterone. It is administered in the form of injections that supply the body with primary androgen hormone. The benefits of Depo-testosterone are:

  • Affordable and long-lasting medication with a long break between successive injections.
  • Enhanced sex drive and improved fertility.
  • Sharper brain functions and better hair growth
  • Stronger bones and increased muscle mass
  • Deeper sleep and less depression
  • Increased energy levels and workout capacity.

It is necessary to take testosterone therapy under the supervision of a doctor so that the optimum level of testosterone is maintained in the body. Increased testosterone levels can lead to side-effects such as:

  • Oily skin, acne, and clogged pores
  • Headaches, mood changes, depression, and anxiety
  • Sleep apnea and fatigue
  • Nausea, vomiting, and infertility.

Low testosterone levels have become a fairly common issue in men nowadays. Often it is due to aging and does not have any harmful effects. Do consult with a medical professional before opting for testosterone therapy.
