Male menopause, the age-associated decline of testosterone levels, may cause a host of physical, intimacy, and psychological symptoms. These include low libido, reduced fertility, increased body fat, and dwindling muscle mass. Andropause is also associated with an increased risk of CAD (Coronary Artery Disease), atherosclerosis, and Type 2 Diabetes in men.
Hormone replacement therapy can mitigate the effects of andropause and boost men’s quality of life and self-confidence.
Men Experiencing a Testosterone Decline
Male testosterone levels peak close to the age of 20 and usually begin to decline around age 40. Unlike menopause, testosterone decline is typically gradual.
The best-known symptoms of low testosterone in men have reduced libido and erectile dysfunction, but testosterone plays a part in much more than just the intimate pathways. Other signs of low testosterone levels may include:
- Reduced energy and vitality
- Depression and fatigue
- Impaired memory and mental function
- Loss of muscle mass
- Gain of body fat, especially belly fat
Testosterone decline is quite common: about 25% of American men 30 years and older have suboptimal testosterone levels.
Low Testosterone: Possible Serious Consequences
Low testosterone levels can lead to impaired intimate function, reduced quality of life, embarrassment, and loss of self-confidence. Additionally, men suffering from low testosterone may also experience serious health consequences.
Reduced testosterone levels are associated with a higher risk of metabolic syndrome, increased cholesterol levels, Type 2 Diabetes, and impaired cardiovascular health. Maintaining optimal testosterone levels in men is crucial to ensuring a healthy blood flow, better oxygenation, and proper heart and blood vessel function.
Is This Treatable?
The good news: low testosterone levels are entirely reversible and treatable with the right kind of medically prescribed, individually tailored testosterone replacement therapy. Higher testosterone levels can give men:
- Improved intimate function
- Improved mood, energy, and vitality
- Better mental capacity
- Increased muscle mass
- Reduced body fat
- An overall “younger,” more vigorous feeling
How Soon Will It Work?
While every patient’s reaction is highly individualized, men may see rapid results with the right kind of testosterone therapy, including an immediate boost in strength, energy, and intimate function.
After a few months, the patient will experience longer-lasting effects such as better weight management, improved lean muscle mass, and body fat reduction.
