WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
Commonly known as “Low T,” andropause (or male menopause) is a result of age-related decline. Characterized by fluctuations of the hormone testosterone, symptoms occur gradually and are usually accompanied by an increase in estrogen production.
A deficiency of this hormone can lead to a wide range of physical and mental changes, such as:
- Loss of lean muscle tissue
- Body fat gain, usually abdominal
- Hair loss
- Wrinkly, dry skin
- Fatigue and low energy
- Poor sleep quality and insomnia
- Decreased libido and erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Aches and pains
- Anxiety, irritability, and depression
- Poor memory
- Reduced motivation, apathy
