Research is at the heart of advancing medical knowledge about conditions like Low Testosterone. Without people like you, we would not be where we are today.
Do you or a loved one have low testosterone and a prior history of a cardiac condition? You may qualify for a research study here in Columbus.
WHAT IS LOW TESTOSTERONE?
Testosterone is a hormone produced by the human body. It’s mainly produced in men by the testicles. Testosterone affects a man’s appearance and sexual development. It stimulates sperm production as well as a man’s sex drive. It also helps build muscle and bone mass.
Testosterone production typically decreases with age. According to the American Urological Association, about 2 out of 10 men older than 60 years have low testosterone. That increases slightly to 3 out of 10 men in their 70s and 80s.
Men can experience a range of symptoms if testosterone decreases more than it should. Low testosterone, or low T, is diagnosed when levels fall below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).
A normal range is typically 300 to 1,000 ng/dL, according to the Food and Drug Administration. A blood test called a serum testosterone test is used to determine your level of circulating testosterone.
A range of symptoms can occur if testosterone production drastically drops below normal. Signs of low T are often subtle. Here are 12 signs of low T in men.

1. Low sex drive
2. Difficulty with erection
3. Low semen volume
4. Hair loss
6. Loss of muscle mass

9. Mood changes
10. Affected memory
11. Smaller testicle size
12. Low blood counts
