Is male menopause a myth or truth?

Recommend to others!
Male menopause is an often used term that describes reducing levels of testosterone in men due to aging. In fact, female and male menopause is two different conditions. In females, ovulation ends and so the production of hormones plummets for a short span of time. But in case of men, hormone production lowers down more gradually. Also, the effects like energy levels, mood and changes in sexual behavior seem to be subtle in case of men.
Hormonal changes serve to be a part of aging process. Unlike the spectacular hormone plunge that takes place in females during menopause, the hormonal alterations in men take place more gradually, say about a few years.
Thus a recent survey performed on more than 3,000 men from different parts of Europe highlighted that about two percent men faced male menopause. More so, about two percent of them said to face physical difficulties such as erectile dysfunction, lower levels of testosterone and no more interest left in sexual intercourse.
Other popular terms used for male menopause are androgen deficiency, late onset hypogonadism and testosterone deficiency. The testosterone levels differ to a large extent in case of men. Generally, the older men seem to have low testosterone levels as compared to their younger counterparts. By the age of 70 years, the reduction in testosterone’s level can be faced up to 50 percent.
Fred Wu, the main professor and scientist of the male menopause survey reported that the diagnostic approach is found to be crucial when dealing with age related reduction of testosterone levels in older men who are more vulnerable to have a background or history of non hormone associated complaints.

  1. I might consider doing hormone replacement therapy or perhaps supplementing with growth hormone as I get older. I’m thinking it might perhaps help delay the aging process a little bit, but I would like to see some studies on long term effects before I make a decision.
