Is It Low T?

What Does the Phrase “Is It Low T?” Mean?

The phrase “Is It Low T?” is asking, “Are the unpleasant symptoms you are experiencing caused by low testosterone levels?”

If you’re a male older than 40 years of age, the answer is probably yes.

The Incidence of Low Testosterone in American Men

  • Over 5 million men in America have low testosterone levels, along with their associated unpleasant symptoms (known as hypogonadism).
    • Only 5-10% of these men are being treated. (Click here to learn why.)
