Low testosterone, also called male hypogonadism, means you have low blood levels of testosterone. Testosterone is a male sex hormone responsible for characteristics of people assigned male at birth (AMAB), like a deep voice, sex drive, and facial hair growth.
When you have low T, you can lose your interest in sex, feel more tired than usual, and have a hard time managing your weight and maintaining muscle mass.
