Patient Comments: Low Testosterone (Low T) - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your low testosterone levels?

Comment from: AB, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: August 16

I notice that the size of my testis is somehow smaller than normal when I was about the age of 25, but due to lack of awareness and medical help I couldn't do anything. However after 2 years of marriage at the age of 30 there was no conception and I decided to seek medical help. My doctor referred me to testosterone level test and the result is 10.93nmol/L.

I'm 56 and my testosterone level is 297. It is my understanding that the range for my age is supposed to be 365 - 890. I have been experiencing decreasing libido over the past 15 years. My wife is fed up with it.

My most troubling symptom was fatigue. Despite continuing to exercise on a regular basis, I also noted a distinct loss of both muscular strength and endurance. Although there was no erectile dysfunction, there was a loss of interest in sex. Despite a good diet and an active life style including regular resistance and weight bearing exercise also developed osteopenia.

Really noticed when I turned 35. Biggest complaint was fatigue and large mood swings. My breasts were abnormally large for a man, continued to gain weight (mostly fat) at waist even though I did a fair amount of physical work and exercise. In addition noticed a continuing loss of libido (desire) as well as definite difficulty gaining a quality (strong) erection. Now I am 48 and may symptoms have returned. Going back for re-evaluation to see if dosage need adjustment or additional estrogen blocker needed.

I am a 38 year old man, recently diagnosed with low testosterone levels. I had several blood tests and readings were between 180 and 205. I also had MRI of pituitary glands but that was all clear. So long story short couldn't find the reason of my low levels.

I have been taking injections for low testosterone levels for nearly a year now. I just had my levels checked last month to find out that my levels were lower than before I started the injections. I have been taking 2ml once a month and have now been prescribed 2ml every two weeks and am hopeful that I will soon feel better. So far this has been pretty depressing and I am considering going to a urologist to see if there are further problems that are preventing me from getting better.
