Andropause is the male equivalent of menopause for women.  Hormones decline as we age and men, like women, experience a number of symptoms when hormones are on the decline.

Testosterone is the predominant male hormone.  When men experience “Low-T” a number of symptoms can occur, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Memory lapses
  • Headaches
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Joint aches/stiffness of hands
  • Decreased mental sharpness
  • Decreased strength
  • Decrease in muscular strength/muscle mass
  • Insulin resistance
  • Premature aging
  • Decreased urine flow
  • Decreased stamina
  • Apathy
  • Shrinkage in size of sexual organs
  • Decrease in sexual libido/interest/desire
  • Hot flashesDifficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue/loss of energy
  • Depression
  • Loss of physical agility
  • Insomnia/poor sleep quality
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Prostate problems
  • Increased urinary urge
  • Thinning/sagging skin
  • Bone loss
  • Hair loss
  • Abdominal fat
  • Elevated triglycerides
  • Breast enlargement
  • Nervous

By restoring lost testosterone, many of these symptoms are addressed.  The goal of therapy is to restore diminished testosterone to those levels one had when they were younger.
