Testosterone is a natural hormone responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of other sexual characteristics. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes (the reproductive glands that also produce sperm) and regulated by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. With low testosterone levels, men can experience a decrease in energy and libido, increase in body fat, and emotional changes.
A decrease in testosterone levels is to be expected as men age. Other factors can also contribute to low testosterone including chronic health issues such as diabetes and obesity.
