Learn about Male Menopause Symptoms, Causes, Male Hormone Treatments and Hormone Replacement Therapies used to Treat Men’s Menopause
Can Male Menopause Be Treated with Hormone Therapy? YES!
LOW TESTOSTERONE | Testosterone Therapy
If Testosterone levels are low, Testosterone Replacement Therapy may help alleviate and reverse the symptoms of LOW T such as a loss of interest in sex (decreased libido), male sexual performance problems like ED – Erectile Dysfunction including the inability to have or maintain an erection; fatigue; depression; irritability; muscle loss; weight gain; insomnia; and loss of bone – osteoporosis. Low testosterone levels may be experienced by men with male hormonal imbalances. As testosterone levels decline, many men feel as though they’re aging much faster than they really are. The best thing a man who suspects that he has an androgen deficiency (Low T Levels), should have a testosterone level test.
As with all hormone replacement therapy, testosterone replacement therapy requires a blood test and a comprehensive medical examination to determine if a man has low testosterone levels and is a qualified candidate for Low T Therapy. Learn more about Low Testosterone Levels.
LOW HGH (Human Growth Hormone) | HGH Therapy
If Human Growth Hormone levels are low, HGH Growth Hormone Therapy may alleviate and reverse the symptoms of LOW HGH such as loss of energy, endurance and stamina; weight gain in spite of exercise and diet; loss of sex drive and function; marked decrease in strength and power; loss of muscle tone and definition; problems with memory, focus and concentration; trouble sleeping and feeling very tired all the time; and a decline in drive, ambition and enthusiasm for life.
Explore Male Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many of the causes and symptoms of low t (low testosterone) and low growth hormone are similar and occur because as a man’s hormones naturally decline, health issues arising from hormonal deficiency and imbalance arise and overlap.
That is why many men explore both testosterone and human growth hormone replacement therapies to treat male menopause or andropause. If you are considering male hormone (Androgen) replacement therapy like testosterone, talk to a doctor specializing in male hormone therapy to learn more about HGH Human Growth Hormone Injections, Testosterone Injections, Testosterone Creams, Patches, Pellets and Gels.
The doctor may also recommend certain nutritional and fitness guidelines that help boost testosterone levels, and evaluate other medications and supplements to help a man effectively deal with the symptoms of male menopause (Andropause).

What is Andropause?
Have you heard of “Male Menopause“? By the time men are between the ages of 40 and 55, they can experience a phenomenon caused by a change in hormones similar to the female menopause, called Andropause. Unlike women, men do not have a clear-cut signpost such as the cessation of menstruation to mark this hormonal transition. Both, however, are distinguished by a drop in hormone levels. Estrogen in the female, testosterone in the male. As a man’s testosterone level drops a hormone imbalance or androgen deficiency occurs. The bodily changes can occur very gradually in men and may be accompanied by changes in attitudes and moods, fatigue, a loss of energy, sex drive, sexual performance, erectile dysfunction, muscle strength and physical agility.
What’s more, studies show that this decline in testosterone can actually put one at risk for other health problems like heart disease, Alzheimer’s and weak bones. Since all this happens at a time of life when many men begin to question their values, accomplishments and direction in life, it’s often difficult to realize that the changes occurring are related to more than just external conditions.
Symptoms of Andropause – the Male Menopause (Low Testosterone – How it all begins…)
Libido starts to drop, muscle mass decreases, weight increases, insomnia and tiredness boardering on fatigue occur more frequently, irritability and depression start to set in. Below are the principal symptoms of men’s menopause.
- Decrease in sex drive (libido)
- Decrease in sexual activity
- Decrease in mental alertness
- Decrease in energy and strength
- Decreased muscle tone and definition
- Weight gain, flabbiness and pudginess
- Night sweats, hot flashes and sleep problems
- Mood swings, grumpiness, irritability, lack of drive or motivation
A gradual hormonal decline
Unlike menopause, which generally occurs in women during their mid-forties to mid-fifties, men’s hormonal “transition” or androgen decline may be much more gradual and expand over many decades. Attitude, psychological stress, alcohol, injuries or surgery, medications, obesity and infections can contribute to its onset.
Although with age, a decline in testosterone levels will occur in virtually all men, there is no way of predicting who will experience andropausal symptoms of sufficient severity to seek medical help. Neither is it predictable at what age symptoms will occur in a particular individual. Each man’s symptoms due to low testosterone may be also different.
Is Adropause (Male Menopause) a new phenomenon?
Yes and no. In fact, andropause – now frequently called “male menopause”, was first described in medical literature in the 1940’s. So it’s not really new. But, our ability to properly diagnose it and to treat low testosterone symptoms in men is. Sensitive tests for bioavailable testosterone weren’t available until recently, so andropause has gone through a long period where it was under-diagnosed and under-treated by physicians. Now that men are living longer, there is heightened interest in andropause and the treatments available for male menopause – and this will help to advance our medical approach to this important life stage in men which was identified so long ago.
Increased diagnostic capability of male menopause
Another reason why andropause has been under-diagnosed over the years is that symptoms can be vague and can vary a lot among individuals. The gradual decline of testosterone levels in men also allow many men to overlook the symptoms of testosterone deficiency. Some men find it difficult to admit that there’s even a problem. And often, physicians don’t always think of low-testosterone levels as a possible culprit of adverse health issues. So in the past, these factors often led doctors to conclude that symptoms were related to other medical conditions (i.e. depression), poor diet, overwork, or were simply related to aging and often encouraged their patients to accept that “they were no longer spring chickens” and their symptoms were simply part of old age.
This situation is changing significantly. New blood testing methods that can detect precise hormone levels are available and there is an increased interest in mens’ aging among medical researchers. So much attention is now being focused on andropause and on the causes and affects of androgen deficiency in men – that major efforts are underway to quickly share emerging scientific information with the international medical community. Age management medicine and anti-aging physicians are conducting bio-identical hormone medical studies and trilas and are working on a variety of progressive testosterone hormone medication delivery systems.
Causes of Low Testosterone Levels in Men
Starting at about age 30, testosterone levels drop by about 10 percent every decade. At the same time, another factor in the body called Sex Binding Hormone Globulin, or SHBG, is naturally increasing. SHBG traps much of the testosterone that is still circulating in a man’s system and makes it unavailable to exert its effects in the body’s tissues. What unbound testosterone is left over does the beneficial work and is known as “bioavailable” testosterone.
Andropause is associated with low (bioavailable) testosterone levels. Every man experiences a decline of bioavailable testosterone but some men’s levels dip lower and faster than others. And when this happens these men can experience andropausal symptoms.
These low testosterone symptoms can impact their quality of life and may expose them to other, longer-term risks of low-testosterone. It is estimated that 30 percent of men in their 50s will have testosterone levels low enough to be causing symptoms or putting them at health risk. Andropause is also referred to as (LOH) Late Onset Hypogonadism in aging men.
