Women are not alone when it comes to hormone imbalance. Testosterone levels decrease with age, and start declining when a man reaches the age of 30 to 35. Low or suboptimal testosterone levels are often termed andropause, also known as male menopause. Factors such as stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and age all contribute to the decline of testosterone production. Symptoms of Andropause include:

  • Accelerated aging
  • Decreased athletic or work performance
  • Lower sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Diminished strength or muscle mass
  • Memory problems
  • Lower competitive edge and motivation
  • Decreased energy and stamina
  • Declining mental clarity
  • Irritability or depression
  • Prostate enlargement
  • Weight gain (especially in the waist or breasts

Treatment

Testosterone therapy is prescribed to you after lab testing, and a follow up appointment. Delivery methods for testosterone therapy include injections, subcutaneous pellet therapy, topical creams, or gels. Routine appointments and lab testing are required to ensure therapeutic level are maintained. Low testosterone can be maintained with a change in lifestyle, daily exercise, stress management, and nutritional supplementation as well.
