Low testosterone can have many causes and can even occur in young men. However, most often those with a problem with testosterone are older men suffering from Andropause (Male Menopause).
Andropause is a natural occurrence that some men worry about when there is really NO basis for any fear. While it’s true that men can develop androgen deficiency AFTER age 50, there are things we can do to ease the discomforts that accompany its arrival.
A big factor in the cause of testosterone deficiency is a decrease in testosterone. Testosterone production declines naturally with age, usually after age 30. Low testosterone may result from disease or damage to the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, or testicles that inhibits hormone secretion and testosterone production and is also known as hypogonadism.
Depending on age, insufficient testosterone production can lead to abnormalities in muscle and bone development, underdeveloped genitalia, and diminished virility.
Although not all men may actually experience testosterone deficiency after age 40, a number of symptoms may appear as andropause approaches:
Changes in sexual function – This may include reduced sexual desire, infertility, and fewer spontaneous erections, such as during sleep or in the early mornings when your testosterone levels should be highest.
Changes in sleep patterns – Sometimes low testosterone causes insomnia or other sleep disturbances.
Physical changes – Various physical changes are possible, including increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density. Swollen or tender breasts (gynecomastia) and hair loss are possible. You may experience hot flashes and have less energy than you used to.
Emotional changes – Low testosterone may contribute to a decrease in motivation or self-confidence. You may feel sad or depressed or have trouble concentrating or remembering things.
All of these symptoms can also affect young men as well if they are suffering from low testosterone.
