Brief Answer:
You are suffering from anemia

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear.
I have gone through the details.

So you have low testosterone which can be explained by ageing and this leads to anemia which is inappropriate quantity of hemoglobin. You require following tests to know the exact reason and then the treatment can be planned to cure it.
Complete blood counts
Iron profile
Please revert with the reports so that I am better able to help.

Thanks and regards
