Generally, statistics show that men only begin to see their doctor between the ages of 35-45. At Care Practice, we specialize in catering to men’s health issues in hormone balancing, and andropause (sometimes called male menopause) and aging. In addition to these preventive measures, we screen for STD’s, cardiovascular disease, as well as prostate and sexual health. Please call us to schedule your first confidential consultation.
What are the symptoms of andropause?
Lower than normal testosterone levels do not cause symptoms in all men, and signs and symptoms of low testosterone vary from person to person. Some of these signs and symptoms are a normal part of aging. The only sure way to know whether you have low testosterone levels is through blood tests.
Signs and symptoms of low testosterone can include:
- Reduced sexual desire
- A decrease in spontaneous erections (such as during sleep)
- Swollen or tender breasts (gynecomastia)
- Loss of body and pubic hair
- Small or shrinking testes
- Height loss and thinning bones
- Reduced muscle bulk and strength
- Hot flushes and sweats
Other signs and symptoms can include:
- Decreased energy, motivation and self-confidence
- Feeling sad or depressed
- Poor concentration and memory
- Sleep apnea or other sleep problems
- A low red blood cell count (mild anemia)
- Increased body fat
- Diminished physical or work performance
