Men usually suspect that they may have low testosterone when they start experiencing certain symptoms, such as lack of energy, a decrease in sex drive, or any of the symptoms listed here.
Some men will look up these symptoms online, while others may talk to their doctor about the symptoms.
Ultimately, whichever route you take, you will land up at the same point – you need a blood test.

Your doctor, endocrinologist, or medical facilitator will then make a decision, based on these indicators and your lab results.
