Low Testosterone

Low Testosterone Low testosterone levels in males can occur as early as birth or during childhood but the more common occurrence is in adult males.  The medical measure of testosterone in the body is in nanograms per deciliter (ng/dl).  The average among males is approximately 700 ng/dl at age 25 and steadily reduces to about 500 ng/dl at age 60.  300 ng/dl would be considered a normal but low number.

The reasons for reduced levels of testosterone can come from a variety of conditions.  WebMD lists this summary of potential causes:

•  Injury to the testicles

•  Testicular cancer or treatment for testicular cancer

•  Hormonal disorders

•  Infection

•  HIV/AIDS

•  Chronic liver or kidney disease

•  Type 2 diabetes

•  Obesity

Symptoms of low levels can include fatigue, loss of concentration, decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction and with extremely low levels can also include hot flashes and physical changes such as decreased muscle mass, beard or body hair, etc.
