Andropause is often referred to as “male menopause” or “Low-T” in the industry, but for those who are unfamiliar with the term—what actually is it and could it be affecting you? As men age, their bodies produce less and less testosterone. This lack of testosterone can lead to a number of symptoms that many men assume is just the normal process of aging.
As testosterone declines in the male body, numerous changes occur. Men can go through these changes quickly, with a sudden change, or more typically, slowly over a period of time. What’s not well-known, though, is that this decline can begin in men as young as their 30s. At this time, the body’s production of testosterone starts to drop by 1 to 2 percent each year.
- Fatigue and irritability
- Inability to concentrate
- Loss of muscle strength
- Reduced sex drive
- Heart disease
- Erectile dysfunction
Who Does Andropause Affect?
There are more than 25 million American men between the ages of 40 and 55 that experience symptoms of andropause. In the next 20 years, that number is expected to increase to more than 57 million. The good news? Symptoms of andropause can be reduced or even eliminated through testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
