There are numerous studies that state Low T – also known as Low Testosterone – is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.

According to Dr. Richard Bebb, a Vancouver-based endocrinologist, testosterone deficiency is experienced by 40% of men over the age of 45; unfortunately, few of these men undergo treatment. In fact, lower “than 5 percent are diagnosed and treated for the condition,” wrote the CBC, regarding an article published in B.C. Medical Journal.

It isn’t uncommon for men over 40 years old to have symptoms of Low T; however, some men are as young as 25 years old may be diagnosed with Low T.
