Andropause is defined as a collection of symptoms, including fatigue and decreased libido, experienced by some middle age men and attributed to a gradual decline in testosterone levels. Testosterone is in a class of hormones called androgens. A deficiency in androgens is strongly associated with obesity, diabetes, increase in cholesterol, heart disease, depression, osteoporosis and decreased bone density.
We can measure Testosterone in both serum and saliva. When we see low testosterone levels or high estrogen levels, hormone replacement therapy is recommended. It is also recommended to follow a healthy lifestyle including adequate exercise, proper nutrition, stress reduction, appropriate sleep and dietary supplements.
