Andropause, Male Menopause Symptoms Relieved by Testosterone

by Laura Ramirez on October 5, 2011

Andropause, male menopause or testosterone deficiency syndrome as it’s now called has a long list of symptoms. Male menopause symptoms are very similar to the symptoms that women suffer when going through the change. These symptoms include but are not limited to: hot flashes, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, chills, mood swings, sleeplessness, weight gain, anxiety and depression. Although some men might not like to talk about this, suffering silently is not a good idea especially since doing so can seriously compromise your health.

In addition to compromising the health of your body, these symptoms can also wreak havoc on your personal life (read: intimate relationships with loved ones and friends). It can also adversely impact the drive and energy that you bring to your profession. After all, mood swings and depression do not make for an energetic, upbeat person to be around.

Here’s what an article on has to say about the subject:

Male menopause, which is being re-branded testosterone deficiency syndrome, and affects one in five men over 50, can be cured, doctors say.

Male menopause sufferers can experience fatigue, depression, weight gain, clouded thought, loss of libido and memory and sleep disturbance caused by plunging levels of testosterone.

An international conference heard yesterday (CORR) that the decades-long fear that upping testosterone levels raises the odds of prostate cancer is a myth.

The study, which tracked the health for 15 years of almost 1,500 men treated at Dr Carruthers’ Men’s Health Centre in London’s Harley Street, found this concern to be unfounded.

The men treated were no more likely to develop the cancer than other men and raising testosterone levels was found to help the prostate in other ways.

Dr Malcolm Curruthers, one of the study’s authors from the University College London, said the misery of male menopause can easily be prevented and treated

Andropause, male menopause symptoms can be treated easily and safely with testosterone either in cream form or by injection.

In fact, there are a number of ways that the symptoms can be relieved. But first, let’s talk about why this is so important to your physical health and longevity. Failing to balance your testosterone levels can cause symptoms to spiral out of control and can also contribute to the development of diabetes, osteoporosis (yes, men suffer from it too) and heart disease.

So how do you treat male menopause? One way is by using an over-the-counter testosterone cream. Another way is by getting periodic testosterone injections. For men, who don’t like needles the convenience of a cream that you apply once daily after your shower is probably the most convenient way to go.
