Lots of overlap: Polyuria is more a symptom of diabetes (both mellitus & insipidus) as well as hypercalcemia than hypogonadism (low testosterone). Symptoms of low testosterone include but are not limited to depressed mood, loss of libido (sex drive), erectile dysfunction, increase in fat (despite proper eating), inability to gain muscle (despite exercise), weak bones, loss of zest for life, etc.
