It sounds just like what you have been dealing with and the realization sets in…you could be dealing with the all too common male problem of low T.

The first step in overcoming any problem is to recognize it. Next step, get medical attention to begin getting back to your normal lifestyle. While low testosterone is an extremely common problem for men you may still have lots of unanswered questions.

One of the most frequent questions we hear from men with low T is, what caused this, or what did I do?

Let’s make this simple, you may have done absolutely nothing to cause your low testosterone levels. Levels will gradually begin to decrease after the age of 30. Occasionally a genetic condition is the cause of low T levels. This is beyond your control, however, you can take action with the right treatment plan to keep them from reaching a level low enough to affect your lifestyle.

Sometimes low T levels maybe caused by unforeseen circumstances. Certain medications can cause a drop in testosterone levels. Consulting with a qualified men’s sexual health physician like the staff at Louisville Men’s Clinic can allow you to determine if your medication is the culprit. Physical injury to the testes, where testosterone is produced, can cause a drop in levels. Health conditions such as, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, kidney failure, and obesity are among some of the causes of low T. While these circumstances surrounding your decrease in testosterone may have been unforeseen, and possibly even avoidable, they do not have to be a curse. Testosterone levels can still be brought back to a normal level with the correct treatment plan.
