When you think of hormone replacement therapy, many think it’s only for women. Some men experience andropause, which is the known as the male menopause. It is a result of decreased testosterone, which is an androgen. Many times, bioidentical hormones can be the solution.

Testosterone declines about 1% a year around the age 30. HRT can help in symptoms of low testosterone, also called hypogonadism. Testosterone is very important as it assists the male body in construction of protein and is necessary for normal sexual drive and stamina, and in producing erections. Testosterone also contributes to numerous metabolic functions including bone development, liver function, prostate gland growth and production of blood cells in bone marrow. A decline in testosterone also puts men at possibility for bone loss and heart disease.

Symptoms of andropause:

  • depression
  • diminished libido
  • erectile dysfunction
  • fatigue
  • Gynocomastia (male breasts)
  • hair loss
  • hot flashes
  • irritable male syndrome
  • memory loss
  • muscle loss
  • sleep apnea
  • weight gain

Symptoms of andropause are also associated with nutrition quality, stress levels, and proper exercise. So with HRT, it’s crucial to get the natural supplements and keep your body healthy as well. Lack of exercise and nutrition can reduce bioavailable hormone levels.
