What Is Andropause?
Also known as male menopause, andropause is a condition that occurs to men at the age of 50 and older. Male menopause includes a drop in the male hormone, testosterone, which can affect many of the systems inside the male body.
What Is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone produced in the testes. A reduction in testosterone can affect energy levels, sex drive, mental performance, bone mass and muscle mass.
Is Andropause Like Menopause?
Andropause is similar to menopause because it happens around the same age in life, and it also involves a natural reduction in the hormone that controls reproduction. However, andropause is different because it is not experienced by all men, and reproduction can still occur after andropause occurs.
Symptoms of andropause can vary and may include:
Increased body fat
Reduced muscle mass
Development of male breasts
Decreased sex drive
You may also experience osteoporosis, male hot flashes and fatigue, loss of body hair, decreased testicle size and breast tenderness. For some men, andropause symptoms include anger. Male menopause symptoms of anger can affect your personal relationships and may impact your functioning at work.
How Can You Tell If You’re Going Through Andropause?
If you’re experiencing symptoms of andropause, talk to your doctor at Nava Health and Vitality Center. Your physician can tell you whether you’re experiencing andropause by performing an andropause test. Getting tested is the first step to getting help.
Natural Andropause Treatments
If you’re suffering from andropause, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a natural and safe way to boost hormone levels during and following andropause.
Your hormone therapy is monitored by your doctor and customized for you. Unlike other forms of hormone replacement therapy, BHRT is made to mimic your body’s own natural hormones. Many patients on BHRT report a smooth decrease in the severity of their symptoms, without the roller coaster of ups and downs associated with synthetic hormones.
Doctors at Nava Health and Vitality Center can help you restore testosterone levels through BHRT therapy and by recommending healthy lifestyle changes and exercise. Maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough sleep and taking supplements can help alleviate symptoms of prove to be a simple addition to andropause treatment. It’s important to work with your doctor to choose any additional supplements that could enhance your wellness.
Our hormone doctors work with our in-house nutrition specialists to customize an “andropause diet” that works for you. This is a diet that promotes hormone development and replacement. Most doctors recommend foods that are high in vitamin D and zinc, such as:
Walnuts and almonds
Although BHRT can be an important andropause treatment, it’s the overall change in lifestyle and behavior along with the hormone therapy that can help restore your body and mind to its original functioning.
