Testosterone: Beneficial for Male Menopause and the Prostate

By: | Tags: , , | Comments: 0 | October 6th, 2011

Our society is very familiar with the term menopause, women who are going through “the change of life.”   However, men also experience hormonal changes as they age.  The symptoms of male menopause can wreak just as much havoc, adversely affecting their relationships, careers, health and overall quality of life.

Male menopause, also referred to as andropause, is the time in a man’s life when his testosterone levels decline.  The common symptoms of male menopause are fatigue, weight gain, depression, brain fog, memory loss, sleep disturbances, and low libido.  Low testosterone levels are also associated with diabetes, heart failure, obesity and osteoporosis.

While the solution for male menopause is to replenish the declining levels of testosterone, there has been concern that this could increase the risk of prostate cancer.  The results of a study, however, disprove the link between testosterone replacement therapy and prostate cancer. A 15 year study of 1,500 patients by the Institute of Urology at University College Hospital, London, found that raising testosterone levels could be beneficial to the prostate.

Young men typically have the highest levels of testosterone and the lowest incidence of prostate cancer. Intuition tells you that testosterone is necessary for optimal health.  If you are experiencing the symptoms of male menopause, consider replenishing your testosterone levels with bioidentical testosterone.
