How do I know if I have low testosterone?

If you think you may have low testosterone, you should talk to a healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will likely ask many questions to find out more about your medical history, your risk factors, and your symptoms. A blood test can then diagnose whether or not you have low testosterone. Your testosterone levels change throughout the day and are generally highest in the morning, so it is likely that your healthcare provider will ask you to do the blood test between 8:00am and 10:00am to confirm the diagnosis. Once you have the results, your healthcare provider will be able to counsel you on the next best steps for you. If you do have low testosterone, your healthcare provider may try to figure out the cause or may suggest treating you with testosterone replacement therapy or other therapies to increase testosterone levels.
