Andropause

Andropause, or male menopause, happens when an age-related change in male hormone levels occurs.

A decline in the production of the male hormone testosterone is normal due to aging. In addition, men with diabetes will experience a decrease in testosterone production.

 

At What Age Does Andropause Occur in Men?

Male menopause differs from female menopause in several ways, and not all men experience it.

Generally, andropause can occur between the ages of 40 and 55. However, some men may experience andropause as early as 35 or in their 60s.

 

What is the Cause of Andropause?

Andropause is associated with low testosterone. In addition, testes produce less testosterone as men age.

Male hypogonadism is a condition in which the body doesn't produce enough sex hormone testosterone can also be linked to andropause.

Testosterone is the male sex hormone that helps boys develop their male features like facial and boy hair, muscle development, and deeper voice during puberty.

Testosterone hormone levels are essential to normal male sexual development and function.
