Is Male Menopause a Myth?

Since hormonal imbalances aren’t unique to women, neither is menopause. Millions of men suffer from andropause, often referred to as male menopause which is caused by a gradual decline in testosterone. Symptoms manifest in physical, emotional and psychological changes, vary in severity and often span decades. Many men notice weight gain, sleep problems, memory loss, depression and erectile dysfunction, in addition to loss of energy, muscle, stamina and libido. Often times, bioidentical hormone therapy is part of the solution. Until recently, andropause has been largely undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because of obscure symptoms and the reluctance of men to acknowledge a problem. However, as a result of new testing capabilities, an increased interest from the medical community and new research, it is becoming much more widely recognized, and more treatable through the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
