Testosterone Imbalance Symptoms
Testosterone imbalance is often referred to as low T or andropause. Low testosterone may lead to very serious symptoms and side effects. Low testosterone most commonly affects men over the age of 40, but can occur in younger men and even women in certain circumstances.
The most common symptoms of a testosterone imbalance include:
- Low libido
- Hair loss
- Erectile dysfunction
- Muscle loss
- Hot flashes
- Difficulty concentrating
No two men experience testosterone imbalance the same way, so it's possible to be going through andropause while only noticing some of these symptoms.
When faced with the prospect of growing older and less vigorous, many men feel hopeless. Bioidentical testosterone ensures that it is possible to avoid, reduce and even completely eliminate these symptoms.
