Low testosterone is a common condition that often goes undiagnosed because its symptoms are similar to other conditions. If you have type 2 diabetes, you are twice as likely to suffer from low testosterone as a man without diabetes. The symptoms of low testosterone can include:
If you are experiencing diminished interest in sex, ED or multiple symptoms together, such as lack of desire to have sex and lack of energy, talk to your doctor. Your physician can check your testosterone levels with a simple blood test. If you do have low testosterone, and have symptoms that interfere with your life, the condition can be treated. There are risks with testosterone-replacement therapy, including cardiovascular risks and increased risk of prostate cancer. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. There are several treatment options available such as gels, patches or injections that increase the amount of testosterone in your body.
