Traditionally, age-related male hormone changes were not considered problematic because fertility in men persists until an advanced age. In contrast, women undergo ovarian function failure and require multiple hormone replacements.
More careful evaluation in males shows progressive age-related changes including:
- Decreased muscle mass & strength
- Decreased vigor, low energy
- Decreased libido
- Nervousness & Depression
- Hair loss
These changes usually begin in the fourth and fifth decades and point towards hormone imbalances and deficiencies which may be considered the male equivalent of menopause, i.e. the Andropause.
What you can do about male hormone imbalance
Optimal health is dependent on the balance of hormones, and not just a single hormone. Currently, men with low androgen hormones can bene?t from hormone replacement therapy. Also, men with imbalances in their androgen to estrogen and progesterone can also be hormone supplemented to achieve balance.
Testosterone production in males is mainly a testicular function. Pituitary sex hormones (FSH & LH) stimulate and regulate this function. Specifically, LH (Luteinizing hormone) stimulates testosterone production in the testicles. This process is under negative feedback, meaning that testosterone levels regulate LH secretion. FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and testosterone stimulate sperm production.
Male Hormones and Libido
As testosterone declines libido and sex drive can go with it. Fortunatly testosterone levels can be checked and there are various hormonal, herbal and nutritional products to help support testosterone levels.
