Testosterone is crucial for building muscle mass and increasing muscle strength and endurance. Low testosterone levels prevent the body from preserving muscle mass. The lower the testosterone level is, the higher the estrogen will be, which turns muscle to fat in different places of the body such as the chest and abdomen.

How Low Testosterone Leads to Muscle Loss?

Muscle loss or muscle wasting is one of the late signs of prolonged low testosterone levels. Before muscle loss, your body becomes weaker and less energetic for a long time.

 

Muscle cells contain androgen receptors for testosterone. Muscle fibers are preserved when testosterone is attached to these receptors. When testosterone levels become low, muscle maintenance stops and muscle wasting starts.

 

Also, studies show that low testosterone increases fat deposition, especially in the abdomen and chest areas. The fat cells in these areas produce aromatase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. Estrogen then increases fat deposits in other areas of the body. It becomes a vicious cycle. The more the fat deposits are, the lower the testosterone becomes over time. Other symptoms such as depression, fatigue, hair loss, and low sex drive may appear earlier.

How to Build Muscle Mass Even with Low Testosterone Levels?

When your body starts increasing testosterone levels again, it reveres fat deposition and increases lean body mass. Certain lifestyle changes can help you to get your testosterone levels back and prevent muscle wasting.

If your overweight, weight loss can help you to increase your testosterone levels again and prevent muscle wasting.

If your testosterone level is low, start an exercise program including strength and aerobic exercises. Aerobic exercises include any activities that make your heart beat faster such as walking or biking. Strength exercises help your body to build more muscles through resistance such as lifting weights.

Get enough sleep since most of the daily testosterone is produced during sleep. Poor sleep is associated with low testosterone levels. Also, not getting enough sleep will prevent you from doing any exercises.

Following a well-balanced diet can help your body to produce more testosterone. Avoid consuming too many or too few calories. You need to get enough calories that keep your weight optimal. Increase your intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and proteins from healthy sources. Try to avoid fats, alcohol, and caffeine as much as possible.

Notice that you may need a better plan to be able to get your testosterone levels back to normal. The previous tips may not be enough for many men to elevate their testosterone levels according to studies. Therefore, these men need to consider testosterone replacement therapy. It is the optimal treatment for men who suffer from muscle wasting and helps them to lose any extra weight and exercise more frequently to be able to build more muscle mass. Also, it improves mood and restores energy levels.
