What is Low T?

Testosterone (T) is a hormone found in both men and women. However, when men begin to age, the production of testosterone begins to decrease. Levels are at their highest in adolescence into early adulthood. By the age of 30 those levels decrease by 1-2% each year. Low T can be caused by failure in the testicles or the pituitary gland which is what signals the production of testosterone.There are a number of bodily functions that testosterone influences including sex drive, sperm production, muscle mass, fat distribution, bone density, and red blood cell production. Since testosterone affects many functions in the male body, when not enough of it is present it can cause physical and emotional changes. At Superior T in Frisco and Irving, TX, Dr. Jerry Lewis and his skilled team work to diagnose low T in their patients, help distinguish what may be the cause, and treat low T levels.


There are several factors that can be used to diagnose low T. Dr. Lewis will conduct a thorough consultation to detect your symptoms and how they are effecting your hormone levels. Some symptoms of Low T include:

  • Decreased libido
  • Decreased energy or fatigue
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
  • Depression or decreased mood
  • Increase in body fat
  • Decreased muscle mass 
  • Decreased bone density

Sexual Health

A reduced sex drive and erectile dysfunction can be significant signs of low T. There is also a significant link between low T and infertility among men, because low T can cause a decrease in sperm production. 

Physical Health

With low T, men can experience changes in their physical appearance and health. They may notice weight gain, decreased muscle mass, decreased bone density, fatigue, a slower metabolism, insomnia, and tender breast tissue.

Emotional Health

Low T does not only affect men physically, but it also causes changes in emotional health. Imbalanced testosterone levels can lead to depression, irritability, and problems with memory and concentration. Irregular sleep patterns caused by low T can create changes in your mood and energy levels. 

Treatment Options

Depending on what may be causing your low T, there are several different treatment options. Some of the most effective treatments are through testosterone supplementation and testosterone replacement therapy. In some cases, Dr. Lewis may also suggest lifestyle changes, such as increased exercise, improved diet, and the elimination of smoking or drinking.
