Andropause

Andropause, or male menopause, is caused by a decrease in the hormone testosterone. This occurs in 50-75% of men by the age of 55. Unlike female menopause where there is a definitive landmark – cessation of menses – andropause is characterized by a gradual decline in numerous body functions. The symptoms are actually quite similar in many ways to symptoms of menopause. The most effective treatment of andropause is bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy.

Men can experience testosterone deficiency at almost any age, but it is most commonly seen after age 50.
