Guide To Reduced Testosterone Symptoms

By Bob Smelyansky

There is a hormone called testosterone which is present in both males and females. It is made in the testes of males and the ovaries of women. There are various influences which can affect low testosterone symptoms.

The development and maintenance of the sexual organs of males is dependent on testosterone. Testosterone is also necessary for other male physical characteristics like the growth of muscle mass, bone development, hair growth and the change in the tone of the voice.

In both males and females aging plays a distinct role in the formation of this hormone and this is the time it starts to wane. One of the reasons why testosterone levels start decreasing is that the gland called the pituitary is not making sufficient amounts. A lack of response to prompting by the brain can also cause the hormone organs to stop working efficiently and this can cause a drop in levels.

The general causes related to the manufacturing organs’ failure could be that the male testicles have not dropped; there has been injury to the scrotum; the person has had therapy for cancer; the person may have been exposed to the mumps virus; normal aging; abnormalities in the chromosomes of males or ovary malfunction in females. Pituitary gland failure to manufacture testosterone could be attributed to damage of the gland; HIV/AIDS; overuse of steroids and constricted flow of blood to the glands.

Low testosterone symptoms in males depend upon the time in their life that the low levels occur. Inadequate testosterone in the fetus can cause underdevelopment of the genitals. There could be stunted development of the penis as well as the scrotum. It may have the appearance of female genitalia or genitalia that is not male or female. Be aware that the meaning of male is based on chromosome type and not on the outward appearance of the person.

When low testosterone happens before or maybe during puberty, there could be a delay in sexual maturity. This may cause failure to enhance muscle mass, the voice will not deepen, there will be poor body hair growth and the penis and testes may not enlarge. Low testosterone may cause decreased sexual desire and function in adulthood. Other symptoms include infertility, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, loss of muscle mass and osteoporosis may also be present.

Infants will generally be screened for any unusual sexual features. Parents and health professionals should check the sexual characteristics during puberty and this should be monitored accordingly. Low testosterone symptoms in adults will generally be recognized personally.
