The Major Warning Signs of Low Testosterone
Posted: November 14, 2014
Traditionally the subject has been reserved for the locker room. Only under special circumstances would it be discussed in the presence of females. Men often view it as a sign of aging, weakness, or some sort of disability.
The subject? Hormones.
The hormonal changes women experience in their 40s or 50s — a drop in estrogen, signaling the end of their childbearing years — can be a difficult time. Men joke about it or avoid talking about it, and they rarely make the attempt to fully understand it. These traditional male responses have been coping mechanisms, because it was assumed men would never understand what it feels like to go through such a phenomenon in mid-life.
Or can we?
Hormonal changes don’t only affect women in their 40s and 50s. They can cause significant issues for men during those same decades as well. The term “andropause” has been coined to explain this phenomenon — the gradual decrease in a man’s testosterone production.
What does this drop in testosterone actually do? The symptoms can be wide-ranging and often quite debilitating: A decrease in energy, feelings of malaise, loss of muscle mass, reduced bone density, decrease in libido, feelings of fatigue, and changes in moods are just some of the conditions men can experience when their testosterone levels plummet. Although a normal part of aging (just like with females), low testosterone can be treated.
