Testosterone, the hormone that determines men’s sex needs. Testosterone is secreted in the testicles by men and slightly in the ovaries by women. It stimulates sex drive in men and also stimulates sperm production. This hormone also stimulates muscle and bone density. Let’s see what kind of problems men have if they have a deficiency of this hormone secretion!
As already mentioned, it is this hormone that can stimulate a man’s sexual desire. If it is exploited to a lesser extent then the sexual need of the male will decrease.
Decreased testosterone secretion is also a major cause of erectile dysfunction in men. The brain needs testosterone to stimulate the secretion of a molecule called nitric oxide. It is this nitric oxide that triggers the various steps that take place in the body to achieve male genital erection. Erectile dysfunction can also be caused by thyroid problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol in the blood, smoking, stress and depression.
In men, testosterone secretion plays an important role in sperm production and proper migration. Decreased sperm production due to testosterone deficiency. The sperm that are produced also go without the ability to migrate. Due to this, fertilization is stopped.
Men need testosterone not only for reproductive function but also for hair growth. Hair loss and baldness occur when testosterone is low.
Testosterone plays an important role in the body’s bone density and muscle stability. Testosterone breaks down calcium in the bones. This can lead to frequent loss of bone density and fractures.
Testosterone increases the amount of fat in the body. Testosterone deficiency is responsible for the increase in breast growth in some men.
Testosterone deficiency can lead to various problems such as male memory impairment, mood swings, low red blood cell count, and testicular growth retardation. Also, it can lead to various problems including heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
