Andropause symptoms are often mistaken for signs of aging. Although over 15 million men suffer from Andropause in the U.S., it is well documented that only 5-10% of men are currently being treated. As this condition progresses, problems of low testosterone, estrogen dominance and elevated SHGB begin to manifest various symptoms while predisposing men to greater risks of disease.
Symptoms often associated with Low Testosterone include
- Low blood count and mild anemia
- Lower bone density and increased risk of osteoporosis, fractures, and breaks
- Loss of strength, and reduced lean body mass
- Increased body fat
- Lower energy levels, and reduced interest in usual activities
- Chronic Fatigue
- Adverse cholesterol and lipid values
- Thinning hair
- Mood swings
- Loss of sexual drive (libido)
- Various degrees of erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Insomnia / Sleep Disorders
- Gynecomastia (man boobs)
- Night Sweats
The above symptoms are commonly associated with andropause in men. These symptoms are further compounded by stress levels, nutritional deficiency, lack of exercise and environmental toxicity.
Some symptoms can also be caused by other diseases and conditions such as thyroid issues (hypothyroidism), medications, depression, diabetes and habitual or excessive alcohol use.
Testing and evaluation are necessary components to diagnosing andropause, low testosterone, hormonal imbalance and deficiency.
Testing For Andropause
Diagnosing Andropause requires a complete medical evaluation including a medical examination and a comprehensive laboratory analysis which involves a simple blood test. All male hormones and blood chemistry is evaluated to determine testosterone, free testosterone, SHBG, thyroid, DHEA, FSH, LH and Estradiol.
