    There is a connection. If you’re always tired and have low desire, it may be a result of low testosterone. Obstructive sleep apnea, a condition marked by loud snoring and even chortling and choking at night, typically befalls men. In a recent study, Mount Sinai physicians demonstrated that obstructive sleep apnea was associated with low testosterone and erectile dysfunction.
