Just about everyone has heard about the male sex hormone testosterone. For most of a man’s life, it serves to regulate key bodily systems. It is essential to peak health, helping a man with mental and physical performance in a variety of ways.
What many people don’t realize is testosterone levels fluctuate throughout life. When they get too low, older men can experience symptoms they never expected: male menopause.
Sadly, many men do not even realize they suffer from this pervasive problem.
Male Menopause is Real – and Serious
Menopause in men – also known as andropause – is a very real phenomenon that can have serious symptoms. As a man ages, the level of testosterone in his body naturally declines to some extent. If that decline happens too sharply, or is too severe, symptoms will arise.
Male menopause is closely related to low T. It manifests a little bit differently from the low T symptoms a man may experience earlier in his life. Male menopause strikes much later in life. Symptoms can be stronger, more persistent and distinguish than low T.
Once onset occurs, many men may never experience significant relief without treatment. Testosterone therapy for men is one option that can produce fast, long-lasting relief.
Male Menopause Symptoms: What to Look For
Doctors from all over the world have studied male menopause and the scientific consensus is clear: It is real, and many men are at risk. Lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise can play a role, but even healthy men may experience menopause without warning.
Signs of male menopause may include:
- General fatigue and lack of energy
- Muscle weakness, inability to do routine tasks
- Difficulty concentrating and remembering things
- A lack of sexual performance or interest
- Sleep disturbances
- Changes in mood and irritability
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the most efficient way to rebalance the body’s hormonal health and support its systems. At the biostation, we exclusively use bioidentical hormones in all our therapies for both male and female menopause.
Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from plant sources. They are the exact molecular match of the body’s own hormones. Human hormone receptors easily recognize and process bioidentical hormones, so there are no risky side effects.
No matter your age, you don’t have to suffer with symptoms of low T or male menopause. the biostation has helped men at every stage of their life achieve better health and well-being. Optimal health and wellness is our ultimate goal. Treating each patient individually is our top priority to ensure success.
