Andropause, or male menopause (“man-opause”) is the name given to the gradual decrease in testosterone levels that typically affects men between the ages of 40 and 55. Low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, affects an estimated 13 million men in the U.S.
This decline in male hormones is a natural phenomenon occurring with advancing age. Due to various lifestyle factors such as stress levels, the quality of diet consumed, lack of physical activity, and poor sleep habits more men under age 40 are observing the side effects associated with low testosterone levels.
When a man’s testosterone levels are low, he may experience the following symptoms:
- Decreased muscle and strength
- Decreased concentration
- Lack of energy
- Low libido
- Weak erections
If you experience one or more of the above symptoms, we encourage you to schedule a consultation for testosterone replacement therapy.
