Low Testosterone (Low-T) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
How is low testosterone prevented?
Low-T that is caused by genetic factors cannot be prevented, nor can low-T be prevented if the underlying cause is a disease caused by inherited genetic factors or necessary treatments such as chemotherapy. However, some causes that can result in low-T such as obesity, smoking, and drug abuse may be avoided by changing a person's lifestyle. These changes may prevent or delay the onset of low-T. In addition, early diagnosis and treatment may prevent muscle and bone loss.
