Watch Out for Signs of Testosterone Imbalance

Written by Dr. Jonathan Peterson, Updated on August 2nd, 2021

Healthy Testosterone Levels are a key to good health. While Testosterone is much more active in men, the hormone is important for both sexes. While Testosterone Deficiency is most common, both too little and too much Testosterone can lead to health issues. Testosterone is an essential part of many aspects of the human physiology, not just sex drive and function. Testosterone also influences red blood cell volume, body composition, strength, psychology, immune function, and cardiovascular health.

Low-T Symptoms in Men

  • Muscle Fatigue
  • Lack of Energy
  • Reduced Muscle Mass
  • Increased Body Fat
  • Low Libido
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Gynecomastia (buildup of breast tissue)
  • Thinning Body Hair

Low-T Symptoms in Women

  • Diminished Sex Drive
  • Loss of Strength
  • Easily Exhausted
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Osteoporosis (Loss of Bone Mineral Density)
  • Muscle Atrophy
  • Increased Body Fat

Symptoms of Too Much Testosterone in Women

  • Disrupted Cycle
  • Smaller Breasts
  • Male-Pattern Balding
  • Acne
  • Deeper Voice
  • Noticeable Increase in Body/Facial Hair
  • Much Easier to Gain Strength

High Testosterone Complications

  • Elevated Cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Insomnia
  • Aggression
  • Suppressed Sperm Count (in men)
  • Liver Problems
  • Cardiac Tissue Damage
  • Blood Clots
  • Increased Stroke/Heart Attack Risk

While Testosterone Therapy is an effective and safe treatment for Low-T, men should be especially aware of the risks of Testosterone Abuse.

Sources of Unbalanced Testosterone

Aging – Gradual Testosterone Decline is a natural component of aging, beginning around age thirty.

Genetics – Some individuals are genetically predisposed to an increased risk of Low-T. Others are born with Genetic Conditions that alter Hormone Production, like Kallman's Syndrome, which disrupts pituitary function.

Diet – Proper nutrition is critical for healthy Testosterone Levels.

Body Fat – Testosterone gets converted into Estrogen by Body Fat. If you're overweight or obese, this negatively impacts circulating Testosterone Levels.

Stress – Cortisol is the primary hormone associated with stress. Chronic Stress takes the components meant for Testosterone Production and devotes them to Cortisol and stress reaction, which can seriously deplete Testosterone reserves.

Medical Problems – Testosterone Production can be impacted by several medical conditions, especially those that affect the sex organs, the hypothalamus, or the pituitary gland. Treatment of any condition which impacts these areas can also disrupt Hormone Balance. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome heavily contributes to High Testosterone in Women.

Exercise – Sedentary Lifestyle can significantly suppress Testosterone.

Medications/Vices – Alcohol, Opiates, and other drugs can have a dramatic suppressive effect on Testosterone.
