The American Urology Association (AUA) identifies low blood testosterone (Low-T) as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). These symptoms or conditions may accompany Low-T:
Low sex drive
Reduced lean muscle mass
There are many other possible reasons for these symptoms, such as: opioid use, some congenital conditions (medical conditions you are born with), loss of or harm to the testicles, diabetes, and obesity (being overweight). See Dr. Karen Thampoe at West Houston Internal Medicine if you have any of these symptoms.
You may require testosterone therapy (TT) if you have Low-T. Most men with Low-T (no matter what the cause) will be treated if they have both symptoms of Low-T and blood tests showing Low-T levels.
DON'T MISS APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR HOUSTON ADHD DOCTOR
Don’t let long hours at work prevent you from getting the care that you deserve. Individuals with ADHD often experience difficulties in maintaining focus, regulating impulsive actions (potentially acting without considering the consequences), or exhibiting excessive activity levels. While ADHD cannot be cured, effective management strategies can be employed, and some symptoms may lessen as the individual grows older. Visit CDC for more information.
