There is a gradual decline in the level of testosterone in all men as they age. This natural decline starts around age 30 and continues through life.
Many men however, experience a lack of testosterone production sufficient to result in significant symptoms. This will have applied to approximately 50% of men by the time they reach age 55.
Testosterone is the hormone produced by the testicles. It is responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics. It also modulates the dilation of the arteries, promoting the circulation of blood and is responsible for the maintenance of muscle bulk. Without an adequate testosterone level there can be important psychological effects such as loss of libido (low sex drive) reduced brain and intellectual activity and mood changes. Low levels of testosterone may result in an increase in central and upper body fat, a decline in the amount of muscle in the body and a decline in strength.
