Andropause Natural Treatment
What is Andropause?
Naturally, male hormones begin to decline around middle age but can be seen as early as mid twenties. Testosterone is one of the major hormones in men – it is responsible for muscle mass, facial and body hair, and deep voices, among other things. It’s estimated that male testosterone begins to decline in production by about 1% per year by the mid-20s. Once men reach their 30s, this number increases to approximately 10% of a decrease in the production of testosterone. This will create a gradual onslaught of unpleasant symptoms in many males.
It’s most commonly referred to as ‘male menopause’ but there is a medical term for it – it’s called andropause. Similar to women experiencing menopause, men can begin to suffer uncomfortable symptoms from lower hormone levels caused by decreasing testosterone. This can often be a difficult time, as the symptoms can be difficult to deal with, both physically and mentally. Andropause can trigger depression and anxiety, reducing your quality of life. While depression and anxiety alone will alter anyone’s mood and energy levels enough to make things unbearable, having lower levels of testosterone will often exacerbate these feelings.
It’s important to address these issues quickly and properly. The only way to know for certain if your symptoms are a cause of hormone imbalance or andropause is to have a health care professional check specifically for this issue. It is most commonly performed as a blood test, however can be done through saliva or urine testing as well.
Common symptoms for men during andropause include:
- Decreased sexual performance/erectile dysfunction
- Low libido/low sex drive
- Weight gain and/or increased abdominal fat
- Inability to maintain or build muscle mass
- Fatigue and/or insomnia
- Lack of motivation and low energy
- Night sweats and/or hot flashes
- Brain fog and loss of focus
- Anxiety, depression and mood swings
- Difficulty making decisions
- Metabolic syndrome
