Testosterone Deficiency (TD) ranks as the second most common endocrine disorder affecting men, following type 2 diabetes mellitus. Despite its prevalence, screening for TD is often neglected, leaving many men to endure its symptoms without proper treatment, greatly impacting their quality of life.

Symptoms of TD fall into three main categories:

  • Physical symptoms include loss of strength, central weight gain, reduced muscle mass, and persistent fatigue.
  • Sexual symptoms often appear as erectile dysfunction and decreased libido.
  • Psychological symptoms may involve mood swings, heightened anxiety, and diminished confidence.

Causes of TD can vary:

  • Classical causes include issues with brain signalling to stimulate testosterone production or problems with testosterone production in the testicles.
  • Resistance at the androgen receptor level can also hinder testosterone's effects at the cellular level.
  • Age-related decline in testosterone production is common.
  • Environmental factors such as lifestyle choices, metabolic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, obesity, and certain medications can all contribute to lower testosterone levels.

Diagnosis requires a thorough assessment including medical history, physical examination, and essential fasting laboratory tests. This initial evaluation typically lasts about an hour, with follow-up appointments scheduled as necessary. If treatment is deemed appropriate, ongoing monitoring of symptoms and relevant blood tests will be conducted.

For men experiencing symptoms suggestive of TD, timely evaluation and management can significantly enhance their well-being and overall health.
