Men’s Health and Testosterone

Men’s health is intricately linked to testosterone. Testosterone contributes to a healthy libido, builds muscle mass, and helps maintain energy levels. A man’s testosterone level peaks at about age 20, slowly declining as he ages. Having testosterone levels that are too high or too low can affect men in negative ways. Studies have shown that men with high testosterone levels take more health risks, such as consuming more alcoholic beverages and smoking, so keeping testosterone at the appropriate levels can help men make better choices for their lives.

Men who have low testosterone levels experience symptoms such as diminished physical energy, strength, and stamina, as well as a decline in muscle to fat ratio, libido, and erections. Men may also experience reduced motivation or drive, higher cholesterol levels, and more aches and pains in their bones and joints if their testosterone levels are too low.

Addressing both high and low testosterone levels is vital for men’s health as testosterone is too large a part of the overall equation in men’s health to discount. Having testosterone levels checked could be the key to improving your quality of life.
