Re: Could it be low testosterone?
I have read alot about Low Testosterone, just make sure they do not dismiss him and his symptoms if he is still in the normal range (300-1100). The problem with Testosterone levels is this: Men never get a base reading when they are feeling good, so when they start feeling bad, they get these results, lets say his are 400ish, they will tell him this is low normal but still NORMAL , therefore NO TREATMENT ALLOWED. BUt if he was normally a 700 # and dropped down to 300 points lower in a short time span, he will feel like HE**, and have all the symptoms you describe. Testosterone is what creates Desire. My husband is 46, his numbers are low normal ( 300-400 range) when tested last year-he was under some stress at work at that time, maybe his #'s has rised, I don't know. BUt we still have a booming sex life, very active for our age, so for HIM these numbers are fine (I feel he was always a lower T guy) but for someone to go from AGGRESSIVE SEX DRIVE to ZERO SEX DRIVE in a short period of time, this is a concern!
If diet, exercise, other health measures do not help, look for a Doctor who will look MORE at the symptoms than his numbers, I have talked to a # of men who got treated at levels higher than my husbands because their symtoms were very very bad, even though my husband had little , if any. He has never been one full of energy to begin with, but enough to stay awake all day , do his job & take care of me, so He is fine.
I hope I made sense here.
