 Andropause Male Menopause

Andropause is the time in a man's life when his hormones naturally start to decline. The gradual decline usually begins during their late forties or early fifties. This decline continues into the eighties and beyond. Andropause is a gradual process and not exactly the same as menopause. However, like women undergoing menopause, the decline in hormones in men results in men also suffering from symptoms of declining hormones

Andropause usually begins between the ages of 50 to 70. Men begin to report symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, general tiredness, mood changes, night sweats and sometimes heart palpitations. Most men attribute erectile dysfunction to be the most significant symptom of Andropause. Many men have also complained of nervousness, irritability and even depression. A man aged between 15 to 30 years has testosterone level at an all time high then drops to the ebb during the Andropause. Young men often have testosterone levels exceeding 1000ng/dl. Compare this with 80 year-old men, whose average testosterone is 200ng/dl.

A man experiencing Andropause is experiencing a drop in testosterone up to 80%.

Hormone Replacement Therapy - Fortunately, through the now acceptable use of Hormone Replacement Therapy for men, most of the symptoms men experience due to loss of testosterone can be alleviated.

Your Doctor can perform tests to determine if you have
Andropause and prescribe a method of treatment best for your individual needs.
