The hallmarks of testosterone deficiency include low libido, weight gain, low libido, anxiety, low libido, depression, and did I mention low libido? You may also experience mood swings, memory loss, sugar cravings and a “beer belly” appearance from the weight gain. This usually starts in the mid- to late-30s, but certain medications, illnesses and genetics can cause it to begin sooner.
Here’s a list of symptoms you should look for:
Joint and muscle aches and pains (often diagnosed as fibromyalgia)
Irritability and decreased ability to tolerate “stupidity” in others or cope with life
Anxiety, panic, sudden sense of doom; onset or worsening of previous mood disorder
Lack of endurance during workout or taking longer to recover
Onset of, or worsening headaches, including migraines
Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation or bloating
Difficulty reaching orgasm (often requiring more stimulation or time)
