Andropause and testosterone replacement therapy

What is Andropause?

Andropause or “male menopause” is an age-related condition that aids in the gradual decline of testosterone levels. Around 30% of men over 50 will experience symptoms of andropause due to low testosterone levels.

Symptoms include:

  • Low energy
  • Depression or sadness
  • Decreased motivation
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • Increased body fat
  • Loss of strength or muscle mass
  • Difficulty getting an erection
  • Low sex drive
  • Infertility

Often men attribute these difficulties to “just getting old.” However, adverse effects on lifestyle coupled with unusually low testosterone levels should be treated by a physician experienced in the matter.

Testosterone replacement therapy

Boosting levels of testosterone to healthier levels has many potential benefits, including renewing energy, giving one a more positive attitude and building muscle. Testosterone can be given in a number of ways including orally, nasally with a spray or with a patch.

Testosterone replacement should not be confused with taking steroids or unregulated treatments, nor is it “anti aging”. It should only be done with the supervision of a physician.
