One of the first and most obvious symptoms of low testosterone levels is a reduced sex drive. This doesn’t mean you should rush to your doctor and inform him or her that you need testosterone shots ASAP so you can get your sex drive back up and keep your lover happy!
In fact, the low sex drive may be caused by other underlying factors such as simple stress, or other serious issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and a whole slew of other medical conditions.
What Are the Symptoms of Low Testosterone?
Symptoms of low testosterone levels include having hot flashes and sweats, losing body hair, being in a depressed mood, experiencing fatigue and decreased energy, increased body fat, and a reduction in muscle mass as well as strength.
Regardless, if your low sex drive lasts long enough to become bothersome in your personal life, it’s so important to visit your physician and verify the cause of your low sex drive. If in fact, it is due to low testosterone, then you have several options to consider.
Testosterone Low? Try a Vitamin!
One such option that many people have been using successfully for years is the use of vitamin D supplements. Using vitamin D is much safer than using any steroid supplement and the reason it works so well is believed to be that the molecular structure of vitamin D is strikingly similar to that of testosterone. Although there is no conclusive medical proof, many studies have shown that taking vitamin D does in fact increase testosterone levels evidenced by performance of athletes who have been given vitamin D compared to others with a normal sex drive.
I am not a big believer in having to resort to drugs in order to treat any type of condition unless it’s absolutely necessary. With that said, I believe if I ever suffered from low testosterone levels I would definitely try using vitamin D before resorting to any type of medication prescribed by a doctor.
