Why did my testosterone level get low?
During puberty testosterone levels are at their lifetime peak, and decline as men get older. Testosterone declines because the pituitary slows due to aging. The effects of environmental pollutants including chemicals can cause the pituitary to slow prematurely. Because of this, it is common to see patients in their mid to early thirties with low levels of testosterone.
Certain medical conditions can also cause low Testosterone levels such as: Diabetes, Obesity, High blood pressure, High cholesterol, Asthma/Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Related Medical Literature Findings:
- University of California, San Diego School of Medicine study: low levels of testosterone may increase the long-term risk of death. In a study of nearly 800 men, ages 50 to 91 years, men with low testosterone levels had a 33 percent greater risk of death during the next 18 years than the men with higher testosterone. This difference was not explained by smoking, drinking, physical activity level or pre-existing diseases such as diabetes or heart disease.
- Testosterone helps maintain lean body mass, build lean muscle, and decrease total body fat (quantified by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Recent study shows testosterone treatment was associated with a 15% increase in fat free mass. With 1-5 kg of muscle tissue evident dependent upon baseline serum testosterone and the dose and duration of the testosterone treatment regimen.
- Low testosterone levels are also associated with increased body fat. Multiple studies of men aged 22–69, demonstrate a decrease in fat mass with testosterone replacement therapy ranging from 10-15%.
- Testosterone’s increases optimal cognitive capacity: January 2008 Harvard Men’s Health Watch reveals that higher testosterone levels in midlife have been linked to better preservation of tissue in some parts of the brain associated with better performance on cognitive tests.
- Men with low testosterone were more likely to have elevated markers of inflammation (inflammatory cytokines) which contribute to many diseases. Men with low testosterone are also three times more likely to develop metabolic syndrome which includes 3 or more of the characteristics:
- waist measurement more than 40 inches
- low HDL (good) cholesterol
- high triglycerides (levels of fat in the blood)
- high blood pressure
- high blood glucose (blood sugar)
- Journal of the American Heart Association study similar findings: Healthy men with low levels of testosterone may have an increased risk of fatal heart attacks or death from any cause, according to a study of more than 11,000 men published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. “The magnitude of the relationship of endogenous testosterone levels with cardiovascular disease mortality was comparable in size but independent of the classical risk factors such as blood pressure and cholesterol,” said Kay-Tee Khaw, a professor of clinical gerontology at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine in the United Kingdom. Compared with men who had testosterone levels of 12.5 nanomoles per liter (nmol/L) or less, men with testosterone levels of at least 19.6 nmol/L had a 41 percent lower risk of dying in 10 years. For every 6 nmol/L increase in endogenous testosterone, the risk of death decreased 14 percent, Khaw said.
