What is Andropause?

Otherwise known as Male Menopause, Andropause refers to the hormonal changes that some men experience as they get older. As men age, their testosterone levels tend to decrease. A man’s testosterone level usually peaks in his 20s. After age 30, the average man’s testosterone level declines 1 to 2 percent each year. This change can be caused by the normal physiologic changes of aging, testicular dysfunction, or hypothalamicpituitary dysfunction. By 60 years of age, more than 50 percent of men have testosterone levels in the hypogonadal range. Hypogonadism is defined as a low serum testosterone level coupled with any of the signs and symptoms. The presentation varies from person to person.
