What Does it All Mean?
Andropause symptoms due to declining hormone levels are common in men as they age. The modern lifestyle of high stress levels and poor fitness and nutrition habits paired with an increased life expectancy have a substantial affect on the male body. With your hormone-producing glands being forced to work harder and longer, it is no wonder that hormones become imbalanced over time.
In men, this hormone imbalance often has the biggest impact on testosterone and cortisol (the stress hormone). With testosterone and cortisol levels out of proper range, men experience a range ofandropause symptoms.
These male menopause symptoms include:
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Night Sweats in Men
- Muscle Loss
- Low Libido or Sex Drive
- Weight Gain
- Urinary Problems
- Hot Flashes in Men
- Gynecomastia (male breasts)
- Hair Loss
- Sleep Apnea
The imbalance of even one hormone causes imbalance in other hormones and leads to a domino effect of sorts. Men may not experience all of the above andropause symptoms, but instead commonly experience a combination of symptoms. While these symptoms are signs of andropause, they may also be symptoms of other conditions like adrenal fatigue and poor thyroid health.
