Men notice that their former youthful exuberance and ravenous virility are slowly diminishing when they reach the age of 40 and onwards. This is when males experience hair loss, bone loss, insomnia or other sleeping problems, and problems with memory and calculation.
They often feel cranky, fatigued, and less motivated. Or sometimes these are accompanied by sweating and flushing, loss of muscle mass and strength, aches and pains, increased fat, decreased sexual performance or erectile dysfunction, and depression.
Most men who reach midlife will basically experience one or all of these in varying degrees.
Since testosterone is a hormone that helps maintain sex drive, increase ejaculation, pubic and body hair, muscle, and bone, the consequences of andropause slowly emerge when a man ages.
But you can opt to battle it out and alleviate or even avoid the symptoms brought about by andropause. You should have a strategy that incorporates lifestyle approaches such as optimal diet, regular exercise, stress management, and you can also try to stop smoking.
