Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Women and Men
FATIGUE, sleep loss, memory loss, mental fog, confusion, depression, irritability, anxiety and mood swings are some of the BRAIN symptoms of low testosterone. There are thousands of receptors for testosterone in the areas of the brain responsible for mood, mental clarity and memory that are affected as testosterone levels decline with age.
Other symptoms of low testosterone include night sweats, joint pain, bladder symptoms, headaches, low libido, decreased vaginal lubrication in women, decreased ability to maintain and sustain erection in men, and weight gain. Symptoms of estrogen imbalance include hot flashes, vaginal wall thinning and skin related changes such as collagen loss.
Symptoms can begin as early as 30 years of age and are often mis-diagnosed and mis-treated with anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, sleeping pills, adult ADD medications and others!
