Andropause, a syndrome described since the 1940s, is
claimed to be occurring in all men between the ages
of forty (40) and fifty five (55) on average.
After the age of thirty (30) the levels of testosterone
decline by 1% per year.
The symptoms are very similar to those experienced
by women; except that men’s reproductive system
continues working and producing until the very late
years, unlike women’s which stops completely.
Also another important difference is that in men the
hormonal decline is gradual and not so sudden as in
women in middle age.
Until the age of fifty (50) years 5% of men will
experience Andropause; and until the age of sixty
(60) years this could rise to 40% of all men.
Obviously the older the age the more percentage
of men will experience the problem.
Seeking medical treatment in the form of
androgen replacement therapy (ART), which is
similar to (HRT) prescribed to women with matching
effects, is only one solution.
