Low Testosterone (Low-T) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
What are complications of low testosterone?
Complications of low-T vary among individuals. For adult males, the most common symptom of erectile dysfunction can lead to stress, depression, or marital discord and low sex drive and except for penile erectile dysfunction; similar complications can occur in women. In addition, muscle mass, bone density, and fertility may be reduced.
Recent studies suggest a link between testosterone therapy and an increased risk in heart disease. For example, a 2014 study reported that testosterone therapy might increase the risk of a heart attack in men aged 65 and older, as well as in younger men who have a history of heart disease. The use of testosterone should be discussed with your physician.
