“I wonder if I really have low T. How do I know whether I’m just a bit off lately or maybe just sleep-deprived? This whole low T thing sounds like a crock; just an excuse made up by weak guys who don’t want to exert any effort or doctors and drug companies who want to make money from treating them.”
This is the initial reaction I hear from a lot of guys who are struggling with low T. Does this sound familiar? Do you wonder whether low T could really be your problem or if it’s all just a load of bs?
Here’s a checklist that should help.
- Do you have a lack of energy?
- Are you tired all the time, no matter how much sleep you get?
- Do you fall asleep after dinner or while you’re putting the kids to bed?
- Do you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day, or sometimes even in the middle of the day?
- Do you enjoy life less than you used to, the things you used to find fun are now more trouble than they’re worth?
- Do you feel grumpy, stressed, moody or irritable a lot?
- Are you finding it difficult to concentrate on routine or mundane tasks?
- Do you have fewer morning erections than you used to?
- Do you lose your erection during sex more often than you used to?
- Have you noticed that your sex drive is not as strong as it used to be or that you don’t get as much enjoyment out of sex?
If you have several of these symptoms, it’s possible that low T is the culprit. You’re not lazy, you’re not weak, you’re not a wimp. You have a recognizable, diagnosable condition that is fortunately treatable.
“Okay, a lot of these symptoms apply to me, but how do I know for sure that it’s low T that’s causing them. Couldn’t it be other things?”
There are a lot of things that can cause some of the above problems, but if you’re experiencing several of these symptoms, low T is one of the top contenders. It’s easy enough to rule low T in or out by a simple blood test. It’s not complicated, you don’t have to fast, it’s just a simple in and out to your lab and within a week or two, you’ll have your answer.
