When does Testosterone start to Decline?
Most Men’s Testosterone levels peak in their late 20’s, and start declining by age 30. While aging is due to a combination of factors, a decline in Testosterone production is likely to be not only a result of the aging process but also a significant cause of it in Men. By age 40, you may only be producing 50% as much Testosterone as you did when you were 20, and by 60 this number may be as low as 25%.
Low Testosterone can dramatically increase your risk of death and obesity
Over a 4-year period, Men aged 40 or older with low Testosterone were 88% more likely to die than those with normal levels. Additionally, men in this age range with low testosterone were:
- 2.4 times more likely to be obese
- 2.1 times more likely to have diabetes
- 1.8 times more likely to have high blood pressure
