Testosterone is the main sex hormone in men produced by the testicles and also by the adrenal glands. Testosterone levels change throughout the day, with the highest (peak) levels occurring in the early morning hours and the lowest levels occurring in the evening hours. Testosterone stimulates development of secondary sex characteristics, including enlargement of the penis, growth of body hair, muscle development, and a deepening voice. It is present in large amounts in males during puberty and adulthood to regulate the sex drive and maintain muscle mass. Levels decrease with age.
Abnormal testosterone levels in males help to diagnose and to treat many specific conditions such as erectile dysfunction, infertility, loss of libido, loss of muscle mass and bone strength, as well as many nonspecific symptoms such as low energy, depressive mood, inability to concentrate and less energy. Monitoring testosterone levels in also essential in transgender individuals who are undergoing hormone therapy.
