As a psychiatrist, I have become increasingly interested in the link between depression and low testosterone levels. Low testosterone (or hypogonadism) in older men may not only worsen a preexisting depression, but may be the cause of it. With age, it is not uncommon to see a decline in testosterone levels. Low levels of this male hormone may cause many of the same symptoms that are seen in clinical depression such as fatigue, irritability, diminished libido, concentration difficulties, insomnia, and lack of motivation.
