I THINK HE MAY NEED TESTING TO SEE IF HIS TESTOSTERONE IS LOW?
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 8 years ago.

The only way to determine if his testosterone is low is to be tested. You can't go just on symptoms because some men have little sex drive to begin with, others are low because of an underlying disease process like hypertension or diabetes, and still others have emotional or psychological issues that puts a damper on their sex lives.
