How do you diagnose low Testosterone in men?

Low Testosterone can be diagnosed if you have 3 or more of the following symptoms:

  • decreased sex drive
  • erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • loss of stamina
  • migraines
  • fatigue, weakness or low energy
  • mental fogginess or forgetfulness
  • irritability or mood swings
  • depression, or lack of motivation
  • sleep disturbances
  • muscle loss or wasting
  • increase in body fat, especially waistline
  • arthritis or joint pains
  • loss of skin tone
  • loss of body hair

Along with the symptoms, we look for a low total testosterone blood level or a low free testosterone blood level. A man must have both symptoms and a low blood level of testosterone to qualify for treatment.
