How a Beaverton age management practice can help men through andropause

Age Management from doctor in Beaverton

While many people are aware of the change that occurs to women during the later years of life as menopause, they are not aware of the male version called “andropause.” Andropause is similar to menopause in women, but occurs in men. It often occurs for a longer period but the symptoms men experience are less pronounced. This causes many men to assume the changes are due to aging and give little thought to ways to improve their quality of life during this time. Men often begin to experience the symptoms of andropause after the age of 40.

Just like menopause, hormone and age management therapies can help Beaverton area men address the problems associated with andropause. At Thrive, we provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, often referred to as BHRT. This treatment can help in balancing the hormones during the aging process to restore balance for optimum health and wellness. This can result in a reduction or even elimination of certain signs and symptoms of andropause, including:

  • Weight gain in the middle of the body
  • Inability to maintain muscle
  • Decreased sexuality or inability to perform intercourse
  • Less overall energy

In most cases, the rise of andropause is due to the drop of testosterone. This is why males affected by andropause are encouraged to speak to an age management team about testosterone replacement therapy. This treatment can be used to bring the levels of testosterone back to their optimum level for the improvement of conditions such as:

  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Reduced erections
  • Loss of energy
  • Reduced physical agility

Dr. Adam Maddox and the team of Thrive provide both men and women with hormone replacement therapy to help ease the transition of aging and maintain one’s overall health and wellness to enjoy a better quality of life. Patients who are interested in learning more about hormone replacement therapy, including testosterone replacement therapy, are urged to contact the age management team of Thrive. Our team of professionals is here to assist men through andropause and help diminish the problems associated with the natural aging process.
