Andropause – Mens Health

Andropause is a name that has been given to a menopause-like condition in aging men. It is characterized by a loss of testosterone. The most potent force underlying mental and physical energy in men, the testosterone drive, takes a major blow as total hormone output slows with age. The symptoms can come on gradually, such as decreased bone density and weight gain, so men don’t always know what is happening. Irritability, fatigue, depression and lack of energy are hallmark signs of andropause. The effects over a period of years can be numerous:

  • • Decreased Libido
  • • Impotence
  • • Decreased Muscle Mass and Strength
  • • Stamina
  • • Sleep Disorders
  • • Mood Changes
  • • Depression
  • • Anxiety
  • • Heart Disease

As androprause becomes more widely recognized in the medical community, more and more men are seeking compounding hormone replacement therapy and other treatments. For andropausal men, treatment is necessary to restore strength, vitality, and quality of life. This usually involves rebalancing the body with testosterone replacement. Because not all men are the same, the amount of testosterone that is necessary differs for each individual man. Compounding allows for individualized prescriptions that will treat each man with accuracy and a healthy balance.
