Men need hormones, too
The phrase “Hormone Replacement Therapy” generally brings to mind hormone replacement for menopausal women. Actually, it is much more than that since hormone replacement therapy for men is very important. Men experience a gradual decline in hormones, especially testosterone as they age. Beginning in the early to mid 30’s, his body manufactures less and less testosterone. The average male will lose approximately 1 – 2 percent per year until sometime between age 40 and 55. At this point, his testosterone levels drop dramatically and signal the onset of andropause- the medical term for the male identical of menopause.
When this happens, a man often finds himself with decreased or absent libido, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, fatigue and a depressed, irritable mood. Most men will attribute this to growing older and do nothing to help themselves feel better.
