What are the Symptoms of Male Menopause (Andropause)?

Men Do Suffer From Menopause. They are called Andropause!

 

Andropause is the biological changes a man goes through when the level of hormones in his body decreases due to age. This is very similar to Menopause in women.

As a man ages, the level of Testosterone in his body may start to fall. This can lead to symptoms such as feeling very tired, loss of muscle mass, loss of concentration, weight gain especially around the waist and even a depressed mood with sleep disturbances.

If the Testosterone level falls too low for too long, it may even lead to more serious problems like brittle bones, chronic diseases and may even increase the risk of certain types of prostate cancer.

If you are suffering from these symptoms, see your doctor.

You may require a blood test to find out what your Testosterone level is. A good natural way to increase your Male Sex Hormones level is to lose weight if you are overweight or obese. If not, you may need some form of Testosterone Replacement Treatment.

This can be done with  Testosterone Capsules, Testosterone Gels or Testosterone Injections. Although some patients may need long-term Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), some patients may only need it for a short time to help them lose weight and get back to a naturally healthy level of Testosterone.
