Even though there is more public talk about women and menopause, men also encounter a hormonal imbalance as they age (andropause). Because women tend to have a more abrupt hormonal change they are more likely than men to realize that their symptoms are from a hormonal imbalance. Men tend to have a more gradual change–with symptoms slowly appearing over 20 year period. Often the symptoms are not seen as a hormonal decline.
Male menopause (called andropause) has many different symptoms. These symptoms come from a drop in Testosterone.
Andropause (male menopause) Symptoms:
decreased morning erections
longer recovery time from workouts
stiffness and pain in joints and muscles
decreased ability to build muscle
lowered mental acuity
loss of the competitive edge
overall loss of vitality
A man may still have a good libido (sex drive) but be suffering from a decrease in his Testosterone levels because he does not realize that Testosterone performs many functions in the body. Testosterone is not just a “sex” hormone.
“I feel back in balance. I have more energy and feel more focused.”

Strong associations between low Testosterone and…..
bone loss (osteoporosis)
type 2 diabetes
elevated LDL cholesterol
There is a lot of incorrect information about the negative side effects of Testosterone and when you research the studies you will find that when bio-identical Testosterone is prescribed and monitored by a hormone specialist, Testosterone is a benefit to the overall health and vitality of men and has not been shown to cause cancer or heart disease. Proper hormone balancing for men results in a man who feels great, thinks clearly, moves easier, and enjoys life better.
