In brief: Maybe

Erectile dysfunction (ed) can be caused by low testosterone as well as other reasons such as medication side effects & poor health, eg diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure) & high cholesterol, as a premonition of future #heartdisease.
Ed can also be due to substance use, eg tobacco, alcohol & illicit stuff.

In brief: Yes

Low testosterone levels can cause difficulty having an erection as well as lack of desire.
Fortunately, there are a number of testosterone replacement therapies available to increase your testosterone level (unless increasing your testosterone level is contraindicated such as in prostate cancer).
