The Facts About Andropause

Unlike menopause, andropause, commonly known as male menopause or manopause, isn’t a topic that’s widely discussed even though it currently affects more than four million men across America. Most of us can’t spot the signs and symptoms of this condition and are unaware that there are treatment options available. Here’s what you need to know:

Why It Happens
Andropause is a change in hormone production that affects men as they age. Starting around the time a man reaches 30 years old, testosterone levels gradually drop one or two percent a year, and as we age that loss speeds up. While this is a completely natural process, it can have a profound effect on everything from your weight and mood to erectile dysfunction and increased risk of heart disease.


Signs To Watch For
Andropause has a variety of symptoms, including,

  • Weight gain
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Muscle loss
  • Depression
  • Hair Loss
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sleep apnea
  • Memory loss
  • Hot Flashes
  • Fatigue
  • Treatment Options

Luckily, there are many treatment options available to help you deal with the effects of andropause. Adopting a healthy diet, increasing your exercise and taking steps to reduce your stress can all help alleviate some of your symptoms. Another option is a personalized Testosterone Replacement Therapy plan, designed by a qualified physician, to help get your testosterone levels back to their peak and reverse the symptoms of andropause.
