Have you ever had a testosterone test? Testosterone is not just associated with being a muscle head! If you’ve been trying to start a family and things are not going right, maybe it’s your testosterone levels. Testosterone levels can fluctuate a lot depending on a number of factors. If you’re concerned about the levels of your testosterone then check out the following:-

  • Do you sweat a lot? The apocrine glands produce hormonally driven sweat. As a kid your sweat might smell sweet but as a teenager or grown man, it can change. You should be producing a healthy amount of this sweat for healthy testosterone levels.
  • Monitor the size of your testicles – your testicle size can tell you about how much testosterone you are producing. After all that’s where the testosterone comes from. If they are small and slightly shrunken you may have lower testosterone but if they are larger and more full you should have a high level.
  • Frequency and quality of erections – erections are fueled by testosterone. If you are not having regular erections then you may be lacking the testosterone that drives the penis to become erect. Some experts claim that morning erections are a giveaway. If you’re not erect in the morning, then you may be suffering from low testosterone levels.
  • Watch what you eat – health specialists claim that male testosterone begin to decline at around 30 in many men. This can decrease about 1% per year so watch what you eat. Good, healthy eating habits can help to retain testosterone levels while being a couch potato and eating a bag of fries every night will do the opposite.
  • Exercise – to maintain high testosterone levels, you should exercise every week. The pituitary gland produces testosterone so keeping this gland stimulated through exercise will certainly help. Try jogging, walking or swimming but avoid lifting too many heavy weights. In some men this can have a negative effect on their testosterone levels.

...to maintain high testosterone levels, you should exercise every week.

  • Age – unfortunately for guys where testosterone levels are concerned, age matters. The fact is from around 30 years old, the older you get the more your testosterone will gradually decrease. It’s not all bad news, diet, exercise and a calm lifestyle can help keep testosterone levels normal.
  • Prescription drugs - taking too much medication or prescription drugs can lower testosterone levels. If you’re a guy popping five pills a day, there’s a good chance that some of those pills can affect your testosterone levels. Asthma drugs, long term painkillers, antidepressants and antihistamines can all play a part in low testosterone.
