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.
- 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
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.
