Low T has been linked to certain other health conditions. Low testosterone is not thought to cause these conditions; rather, men with certain health conditions might be more likely to have Low T.
One study found that men with the following conditions had a greater likelihood of also being diagnosed with Low T:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Asthma/Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
The symptoms of Low T can be subtle or similar to those caused by other medical conditions. Consult your doctor if you have any of these health conditions along with signs and symptoms of Low T.
