Combatting the Effects of Andropause

portrait of older man posing in front of a bridgeAndropause – the male version of menopause, is a period in a man’s life where testosterone levels begin to decline. This usually occurs when men reach the age of 40. Unlike menopause, where women stop producing hormones completely, andropause is a more gradual decline. Andropause is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Depression
  • Loss of Interest in Sex or Sexual Performance Issues

If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should look into other medical problems – like diabetes, that could be causing these issues. You can also make an appointment with a doctor at Pinnacle Men’s Health to have your hormone levels tested.
