Low Testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone often associated with masculinity, but its significance extends far beyond gender identity. In both men and women, testosterone plays a crucial role in various bodily functions, including muscle mass, bone density, mood regulation, and libido. When testosterone levels dip below normal ranges, it can lead to a range of symptoms that impact quality of life. Fortunately, functional medicine offers holistic approaches to address the underlying causes of low testosterone and restore hormonal balance.

Understanding Low Testosterone

Testosterone is primarily produced in the testes in men. It influences physical development during puberty, supports reproductive function, and contributes to overall health and well-being throughout life. Beginning at age 35, testosterone decreases 1-2% per year. However, testosterone levels can decline due to various factors, including aging, chronic stress, poor nutrition, insulin resistance, uncontrolled diabetes, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, hormonal imbalances, environmental toxin exposure and certain medical conditions.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone
