Hypogonadism is a medical condition that occurs in men whose bodies do not produce enough of the hormone testosterone. In men, a normal level of testosterone should fall in the range of 300 to 1,000 ng/dL. Testing for testosterone levels can be done using a blood sample. Low testosterone levels and Low T symptoms can occur as the result of several different medical conditions, including chronic illnesses, delayed puberty, noncancerous tumors, chemotherapy, and testicle failure. However, it is important to realize that testosterone levels in men normally decrease starting around the age of 30 years old.
If you are a man who suffers from hypogonadism, you will likely experience some of the Low T Symptoms below:
The drugs that doctors use to treat low testosterone levels (hypogonadism) come in many forms.

In addition to the health conditions listed above, recent medical studies have suggested a link between Low T drugs and several very severe health risks. Among these risks are heart attacks, strokes, and even death. The United States Food and Drug Administration is currently in the process of reviewing the data collected in these studies as well as obtaining its own information regarding these health risks and dangers. While the FDA has not reached its conclusion regarding the link between Low “T” testosterone supplements and strokes/heart attacks/death, their investigation is raising red flags among consumers nationwide.
