Andropause - Male Menopause
Hormone loss as we age doesn't happen just to women. The modern lifestyle of high stress levels and poor fitness and nutrition habits paired with an increased life expectancy have a substantial affect on the male body. With your hormone-producing glands being forced to work harder and longer, it is no wonder that hormones become imbalanced over time. The imbalance of just one hormone causes imbalance in other hormones and leads to a domino effect of sorts.
Men experience a gradual loss of hormones, mainly testosterone. The result is andropause, known as the "male menopause." Andropause can make daily life feel like an uphill battle, and because men are living longer, more active lives they are seeking and finding relief from the serious symptoms of hormone imbalance. Andropause symptoms due to declining hormone levels are common in men as they age. In men, this hormone imbalance often has the biggest impact on testosterone and cortisol (the stress hormone). With testosterone and cortisol levels out of proper range, men experience a range of andropause symptoms.
Men may not experience all of the andropause symptoms below, but instead commonly experience a combination of symptoms. While these symptoms are signs of andropause, they may also be symptoms of other conditions like adenal fatigue and poor thyroid health. Hormonal imbalance in men are at the root of many chronic health issues and can increase the risk of serious disease.
The signs of andropause and related hormonal issues include:
Muscle loss Lower sex drive
