Andropause/Male Hormone

Andropause and Male Hormones

Knowledge and attitudes regarding the existence of and treatment for andropause - the male menopause - have recently undergone a revolutionary change.

Symptoms of Andropause are:

  • Weakness & fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances & insomnia
  • Reduced libido
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Slow wound healing
  • Prostate problems
  • Low sperm counts
  • Depression, anxiety, irritability
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Memory impairment
  • Reduced cognitive function

Numerous changes are associated with an age-related decline in the hormone testosterone, which is classified as an androgen. Some men may go through a rather sudden change in testosterone levels that might correlate with the hormonal changes that women experience at menopause. However, most men have a slower and subtler hormonal decline, and develop symptoms over a period of time. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency are often attributed to other problems, denied by the patient, and unrecognized by the physician.

Testosterone is beneficial in many ways. It enhances libido, decreases heart disease risk, increases lean body mass and prevents osteoporosis. Testosterone also lowers total cholesterol and LDL, and decreases insulin resistance.

Ten years ago testosterone was thought to be beneficial only for younger men for whom it delivered increased muscle mass, stronger bones, powerful sexual urges, and the three V's of vim, vigor and vitality. For older men, it was usually avoided due to its association with such age-related complaints as male-pattern baldness, urinary difficulties and prostate cancer.

Natural testosterone is central to the treatment of andropause. Hormones can be replaced or restored back to physiologic levels considered normal for younger males and many of these changes can be reversed.
