What Causes Low Testosterone?
There are essentially two causes of low T: primary hypogonadism and secondary hypogonadism. Primary hypogonadism occurs when the testicles are injured and have not descended, or if one suffers from Klinefelter syndrome. Secondary hypogonadism is from pituitary disorders, medications, elevated blood sugar, and aging. Some of the signs of low T in men include low mood, decreased sex drive, and physical weakness.

There are several different low T symptoms, and indicators of low T are not always obvious. Here are some common symptoms of testosterone deficiency:
- Low Energy
