How Do I know If I Have Low Testosterone Levels?
Low Testosterone and other hormone imbalances can lead to issues that will compromise your quality of life. Heart health, digestion, weight management, vascular health, even your mental health, all depend on a perfectly balanced hormone system.
No one should have to live with the debilitating symptoms of Low Testosterone. Say goodbye to unnecessary fatigue, muscle weakness, rapid weight gain, depression, and erectile dysfunction. Dr. Mikhail Berman, M.D. is an Anti-Aging specialist and a caring physician who has helped hundreds of men return to a life of physical activity, strength, optimism and the enjoyment of a great sex life.
The Science of Hormones.
Weight gain is a common occurrence that takes place as we age, but the depletion of Testosterone or a hormone system out of balance can make this a very serious health condition. Weight gain is often something we blame ourselves for when a consultation with a hormone specialist might actually reveal that hormones are at fault. It is common for men with the signs and symptoms of Low Testosterone, like weight gain, to look for advice from a Testosterone specialist who is a licensed medical doctor, like Dr. Mikhail Berman.
Insomnia can lead to a long list of health concerns, both mental and physical. A low level of Testosterone has been known to disrupt men’s sleep patterns. This exacerbates their fatigue and leads to even less T hormone production. Insomnia takes a serious toll by negatively impacting blood pressure, metabolism, blood sugar levels, and chemical imbalances that can cause mental health issues. While the proper treatment may include behavioral, psychological and medical solutions, this condition should always include a full-scale hormone test and a look at melatonin.
Our bodies are amazing machines, capable of regulating all kinds of functions every minute of every day, including healing, digestion, and reproduction (sex). However, like any machine, it requires times of rest to restore and re-regulate to prepare for the next round of activity.
Short periods of fatigue are normal. Physical exertion, temporary stress or sleep deprivation can lead to fatigue. However, if fatigue lasts for long stretches, or occurs even after you get enough sleep, it’s time to get your hormone levels checked, especially Low T levels. This is because Low Testosterone causes serious fatigue.
We often see emotions as being something we can simply “control.” While this is partly true, there is a complex system at play between our brain (our thoughts) and our emotions, with hormones playing a major role.
Studies have shown that men with Low T are four times more likely to be diagnosed with clinical depression, along with other mood disturbances including irritability. If you are suffering from strong emotional responses that are negatively impacting your life, such as anger or severe depression, it may be time for a consultation with a trusted physician like Dr. Berman.

Low Sex Drive
Our bodies are made to perform all sorts of necessary functions, all of them regulated by hormones. When the body is working in harmony with a balanced hormonal system, it desires sexual activity and can perform at peak efficiency and enjoyment. Testosterone is the main driver behind men’s libido and supports the ability of their sex organs to function perfectly, a lower level of Testosterone must be considered as a factor if you suffer from an extremely low sex drive.
Some degree of muscle loss is almost guaranteed as you age. Low levels of Testosterone can cause this to happen at a faster rate. If you are showing unusual or excessive signs of weakness than you are used to, it bears looking at your Testosterone levels very carefully. While some health conditions can be hard to reverse, the good news is that the loss of muscle mass and strength isn’t one of them. This condition can be improved with low dose Testosterone therapy.
While not serious, pronounced gynecomastia is the result of an imbalance between testosterone and estrogen in men. One result of having low testosterone and too much estrogen is an increase in tissue buildup in the breast area. This can cause a man’s chest area to resemble a woman’s, with breasts. This is not an immediate health risk but can certainly be a cause of embarrassment and distress, and keep you from participating in activities you might enjoy, such as sex or swimming.
As men age, Low Testosterone can slow the renewal process in bone tissue, something that a Low Testosterone specialist would have to assess. It’s important to know how your levels might impact your bone strength as you age. Osteoporosis is a disease that results in serious deterioration of bones when the cells are unable to generate new tissue. As a trusted hormone doctor, Dr. Mikhail Berman has advised hundreds of patients regarding their Low T levels and the early symptoms of osteoporosis.
