Symptoms of Low T: Weight Gain
Why does this happen? Testosterone helps regulate insulin, glucose and the metabolism.
As men age, it can become more difficult to maintain a healthy weight. For men experiencing low-T, this battle is even harder. Low energy can make it difficult to develop successful habits at the gym, and unbalanced hormones can make it more difficult to shed excess body fat.
When testosterone levels are low, our body’s ability to regulate insulin, glucose and metabolism decreases, which in turn causes more body fat accumulation.
In addition, this fatty tissue may also contribute to decreasing testosterone levels by converting testosterone to estrogen.
What does this mean? Without treatment for low testosterone, this negative feedback loop will continue to increase body fat and reduce testosterone.
