Testosterone is the most important male hormone. If you’re lacking in it, it can have a really negative impact on your life, health and general well-being.
Basically, if you’re low on testosterone, you’re low on everything.
Here are the five main warning signs that you body is telling you you’re low on Testosterone:
1. Low Sex Drive
If you’re a man and you don’t want sex, this is a major warning. Sex drive is a key indicator of your overall health, and this should set off alarm bells.
Tell-tale signs are: •
Not waking up with an erection
• Not waking up with an erection
• Not wanting sex when your partner does
• Not being horny at any point throughout the day
• Difficulty maintaining an erection
If you suffer from these symptoms, you’re almost certainly suffering from a lack of testosterone, aka “Low T”.
2. Lack Of Confidence
If you feel a sudden or gradual loss of confidence or self-esteem, this could be a warning sign.
• Testosterone controls aggression and dominance and is shown through these traits.
If you suddenly feel somewhat shy, or have a total lack of confidence in yourself, it could be down to one fact: you have too little testosterone.
3. Excess Body Fat
If you’ve started to gain body fat in key areas: the nipple, back of the arms, around the abs and on your quads, this could be a sign.
• Testosterone helps to regulate body fat levels in a male and helps metabolize it.
If you’re struggling to get rid of body fat or have started to acquire body fat, this could be a sign.
4. Lack Of Focus
If you’re struggling to concentrate, get motivated or stay focused on the task at hand – you may be suffering from low testosterone.
• Testosterone has a large impact on the Central Nervous System, which controls your focus and motivation (as well as a million other natural processes).
If you can’t stay on task, stay motivated to achieve a goal or keep slipping between thought processes, low testosterone could be the cause.
5. Lack Of Energy
A lack of energy, or daily ‘get-up-and-go’ can also be an indicator you’re suffering from a bout of low testosterone.
• If daily chores and menial tasks are suddenly becoming too much, this could be telling you what you’re missing.
Think You Might Be Suffering? Here’s What To Do:
See a Physician and get a simple hormone level test.
They can tell you if you’ve got a high or low level of Testosterone, so you know if it really is a problem.
If it is, you have two options:
• Fix It Naturally: Through diet, exercise and hormone optimisation techniques. • Hormone Therapy: Doctors can provide intravenous Testosterone replacement.
I thoroughly recommend taking the first route, because it pays off the most in the long run.
But you should always listen to your doctor’s recommendation.
Good luck, and know you’re not alone!
