NuMale President Brad Palubicki Shares Advice on How to Spot the Symptoms of Low T

Testosterone is an extremely important hormone to human body, and it is absolutely vital for men. Testosterone is responsible for men’s sexual function and motivation, muscle and bone formation, hair growth, and a host of other key functions of the body.

Normal testosterone levels in men and women may fluctuate with age or depending on a number of other internal and external factors. However, when testosterone levels fall below that normal fluctuation range, a variety of health complications begin to arise.

That’s why it is very important to spot the signs of low testosterone (Low T) early, before it significantly affects your wellness and way of life.

Men affected by Low T often experience chronic exhaustion, lack energy and depression. If you constantly feel tired for no significant reason, it might be time to have your hormone levels checked out.

Lack of testosterone causes a decrease in bone strength and density. If you begin to suffer bone fractures or are diagnosed with Osteoporosis, this might be a sign of Low T.

Premature ejaculation and a decrease in sexual desire are also among the unfortunate symptoms of low testosterone. If you begin to experience difficulties in achieving or maintaining an erection, do not simply resort to the blue pill. Please talk to an expert instead.

Low T may also cause infertility and conception problems, as testosterone is responsible for sperm and semen production in men.

If you notice an abnormal decrease in your muscle mass or are unable to achieve your fitness goals, even though you exercise regularly, you might be running low on testosterone.

While some men are lucky enough to keep a full head of hair into their 50s and beyond, others begin to bald before they turn 30. Early hair loss might be a sign of Low T. Fortunately, Low T-related balding can be significantly slowed down when diagnosed in time.

And last but not least, lack of testosterone in men often causes weight gain and obesity. Research shows that Low T disrupts normal metabolic functioning and triggers the body to store extra fat (especially in the abdominal area). This in turn may lead to a cardiovascular illness.

At NuMale Medical Center, we help thousands of men suffering from Low T regain their health and return to their normal lifestyles. Pay attention to these characteristic signs of low testosterone and consult a qualified physician for a thorough medical examination if you start to experience these symptoms.

Work-Related Stress is More Damaging than You Think

Any job can be stressful, and all of us experience some pressure at work from time to time. However, when stress becomes a daily part of your work schedule, it is poised to have serious adverse effects on your physical and emotional health.

A new study by Harvard Business School and Stanford University found that occupational stress might be just as bad as secondhand smoke! Building upon the evidence from 228 other studies, the researchers calculated that excess workloads increased chances of an illness by 35 percent. People who regularly work overtime become almost 20 percent more likely to die prematurely. The research also found that professionals who are constantly scared to lose their job are twice as likely to experience health complications.

But the negative effects don’t stop there. Experiencing too much stress at work might actually stop you from succeeding in your career. As NuMale Medical Center Founder and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Christopher Asandra explains in his recent Askmen article, stress causes an increase in cortisol (stress hormone) levels, which blocks the positive effects of testosterone on the body. According to recent research, says Dr. Asandra, “men with lower testosterone or higher cortisol levels are demonstrably less likely to serve in leadership positions.”

Work-related stress is also a major contributor to erectile dysfunction in men. Having your testosterone and other hormone levels checked regularly is important for determining a number of potential health concerns. Fortunately, many of the negative effects of hormonal disbalance can be easily reversed with the help of a trained specialist. Hormonal therapy requires a precisely calibrated approach and extensive knowledge of the subject so make sure you consult a physician who specializes in that area.

In the meantime, try to keep your work stress under control: make sure you get enough sleep, exercise regularly and stop thinking about work once you leave the office.
