Andropause (Hypogonadism,) a Problem Men Must Get Ready to Handle.

Andropause, also known as male menopause, refers to the phase in a man’s life typically occurring after the age of 40, where there is a gradual decline in testosterone levels, the primary male hormone. This decline in testosterone can lead to various changes in the body, such as decreased libido, hair loss, increased susceptibility to weight gain and abdominal fat, as well as an increased risk of conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. These physical changes can also affect emotional and mental well-being.

Suspicious signs When starting to enter the ``golden age``

10 signs of male menopause

Each person has menopause symptoms that occur differently. The symptoms can be observed as follows.

  • erectile dysfunction
  • reduced libido
  • Feeling depressed, easily bored, easily irritated, mood swings
  • increased body fat
  • gynecomastia, or development of breasts
  • difficulty concentrating
  • insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • decreased bone density
  • Abdominal obesity
  • reduced muscle mass and feelings of physical weakness

The symptoms of male menopause can be divided into 4 main aspects

Physical

Feeling easily fatigued, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, accumulation of abdominal fat leading to a protruding belly, lack of energy, decreased muscle strength and size, generalized muscle weakness, unexplained body aches and pains, continuous decrease in bone mass and bone density, leading to brittle bones and an increased risk of osteoporosis, similar to menopause in women.

And as a result of low testosterone levels, there is an increase in cholesterol levels, including LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, leading to accumulation and blockage in the blood vessels. This can cause hardening and reduced flexibility of the blood vessels, resulting in decreased blood circulation. It may lead to complications such as diabetes, dementia, cardiovascular diseases, and vascular diseases.

Psychological, Intellectual, Emotional

Difficulty concentrating on tasks, decreased memory, especially short-term memory, feelings of sadness, loneliness, and boredom, fatigue, lack of motivation, easily startled, feeling anxious and irritable, complaining more often, and feeling more discouraged.

Cardio Vascular

Some individuals may experience hot flashes, where they suddenly feel hot followed by feeling cold, increased sweating, or rapid heartbeat.

Sexual health

The decreased levels of male sex hormones can lead to erectile dysfunction, as these hormones stimulate sexual arousal. When testosterone levels decrease, sexual arousal may not occur, resulting in the inability to achieve an erection. Additionally, there may be a decrease in the amount and frequency of ejaculation.

The fact about ``andropause in men``

Occurs in up to 75% of men, with about half of them experiencing symptoms severe enough to warrant medical attention. Men going through andropause often have less distinct symptoms compared to women in menopause, and diagnosing andropause in men is generally more challenging than in women.

Risk factors of male menopause

Not only at the age of 4, but also at the age of 3, men can enter andropause earlier than expected. However, there is no need to worry because symptoms of andropause in men can be effectively managed with specialized medical care and regenerative medicine.

Caring for and mitigating the risks of male andropause:

  2. Balance emotions: Understand and accept the changes in the body, think positively, manage feelings of anger, avoid isolation by socializing with peers, engage in outdoor activities to reduce stress when alone.
  3. Avoid smoking.
