Diabetes & Low Testosterone

Q: Is it possible for a 21 year old Type 1 Diabetic to have low testosterone levels? I have had diabetes for 9 years and I always feel moody and weak, and not also gaining much in the gym.

A: It certainly can happen with diabetes. It might be worth getting checked out by a physician knowledgeable about testosterone levels. Remember that much of the diagnosis is made by an assessment of your symptoms with the blood work somewhat helpful. If you are in our area I would be happy to see you at our clinic since we have a lot of experience in this field.
