When do we know if a man has andropause? Some symptoms that may occur can be baldness, reduced body hair, decrease in body fat, feeling tired and stressed, high blood, and/or enlarged prostate. Furthermore, it can be drastic change in the mood such as irritability, aner, tiredness, low self-esteem, and anxiety. Some may show changes in sexual function such as reduced sexual drive and poor erections. In addition, some symptoms may also be seen physically through weight gain/loss, hair loss or lower muscle mass.
Though some of these may be normal to other people, it is best to consult a professional to be sure. It is also good that we get ourselves checked so that illness/diseases are managed as soon as possible. Some of the treatments can be with the use of testosterone supplements given to older men, testosterone replacements, and others. Doctors usually conduct additional tests if necessary. These are blood tests, hormone analysis, and BMI. We should never self medicate nor self administer such tests and diagnose ourselves just to save or for convenience’s sake. Remember that in health, we should never settle for second-grade check-ups or medication. Assuring ones health in a proper clinic with professionals is a must.
