Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

The loss of men’s hormones is called “Andropause” or “Male Menopause”. It is sometimes referred to as low testosterone or “Low T.” Andropause generally affects men between the ages of 40 and 55, similar to menopause in women.

Andropause is simply a decline in a man’s level of testosterone, causing mood changes, decreased muscle mass, fatigue, and loss of sex drive. Other conditions related to complaints of fatigue may include low thyroid or adrenal function.

Andropause may cause any of these symptoms:

  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Increased fat mass and weight gain
  • Anemia
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Diminished libido
  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Irritability
  • Hair loss
  • Depression
  • Changes in mood
