Your energy, stamina and sex drive have dropped, your waistline has expanded, and you haven’t had a good night’s sleep in what seems like forever.
Welcome to andropause.
Similar to menopause in women, andropause arrives in a man’s life when there is a drastic drop in hormone levels — specifically testosterone. While total testosterone may not drop much, free testosterone, or the active form of testosterone, drops significantly with age, while estrogen levels increase. In fact, the average 60-year-old male has more circulating estrogen in his bloodstream than the average 60-year-old female!
This hormone imbalance can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms: diminished energy, reduced libido, decreasing muscle mass, abdominal weight gain, depression, reduced cognitive function, and an increased risk of heart disease.
You don’t have to suffer from the negative effects of andropause. At Forum Health, our physicians are experts at diagnosing and reversing hormone imbalance through testosterone therapy, as well as nutrition, supplements, and other science-based, innovative treatments.
