ARC Leander Physician Describes Low T Symptoms
June 26, 2017
Male hypogonadism, also called low testosterone or low T, is a condition in which the body doesn't produce enough testosterone — the hormone that plays a key role in masculine growth and development during puberty — or has an impaired ability to produce sperm or both.
Dr. Rodolfo G. Gutierrez-Macias, Family Medicine physician at ARC Leander says, “Symptoms include moodiness, feeling depressed, fatigue and lack of energy, an increase in body fat, reduced muscle and bone mass, and even hair loss.”
“If you have some of these symptoms and think you might have low testosterone, talk to your doctor today, ” suggests Dr. Gutierrez-Macias. Hear his complete message on this podcast.
