Male menopause is also commonly referred to as andropause due to declining levels of androgens in the male body – this commonly occurs from the age of 35 onwards.
Androgens are the class of hormones that have masculinizing effects in the human body – correct levels are crucial for good health in men and testosterone is the most active of the androgens.
So, as testosterone levels begin to drop, performance starts to slow and physical and mental changes begin to occur.
Some of the main male menopause symptoms include:
- Night sweats
- Hot flashes
- Weak erections
- No desire
- Weight gain (easy and rapid)
- Mood Swings
Adequate amounts of testosterone vary from man to man and there is no ‘set’ level that you must aim for.
If a man knows what his normal testosterone levels were in his early 30′s, that information can be used in determining the appropriate testosterone treatment for low testosterone.
If normal testosterone levels are not known for a man, treating low testosterone symptoms will likely begin at the lower end of the range, and male menopause symptom improvements will be monitored by you and/or your doctor.
If no treatment has been tried (or medical treatments have not worked), a natural self treatment should be considered.
Before considering testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), it’s important to have a complete physical exam, medical history and appropriate blood testing including a PSA test to be sure prostate cancer cells are not present. Testosterone replacement therapy for male menopause symptoms requires that a physician be involved.
