Andropause & Male Aging

Fatigue. A protruding belly. Unexplained melancholy. A sex drive stuck in neutral. These are among the common symptoms that fall under the term andropause, often referred to as male menopause. Unlike menopause in women, which involves the relatively sudden decrease of hormone levels, andropause is a gradual decline in hormone production that often begins in your 30s and continues well past 70. At Rejuvime Medical, we offer andropause treatment, including testosterone replacement therapy, for men from New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport, Louisiana as well as Jackson and Hattiesburg, MS.

What Is Andropause?

Andropause is a decline in male hormones, especially testosterone, that is part of the natural aging process. Testosterone is the major male sex hormone, and its role in producing the energy, libido, and strength associated with masculinity can’t be overstated. The slow decline in testosterone levels causes various physical and psychological symptoms that range from annoying to concerning.

At Rejuvime Medical, we provide hormone replacement therapy and other anti-aging treatments for men who want to regain their vigor, improve their mood, and stay mentally sharp.

What Are Symptoms of Andropause?

If you’ve noticed your youthful zest diminishing, it could be andropause. Beginning as early as your 30s, you may experience insomnia, an expanding waistline, and diminished libido. These are all signs of andropause. Some other symptoms include:

  • Fatigue and lower energy levels
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of concentration
  • Depression
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Erectile dysfunction

Andropause may be the cause of these symptoms. Still, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your doctor to rule out potential underlying illnesses associated with similar symptoms, such as cardiac problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, or depression.

Treatments for Andropause

Once a doctor rules out other conditions and you’re leading a healthy lifestyle, you may want to consider treatments to increase your testosterone levels. The idea that men go through mid-life hormonal changes similar to menopause is relatively new and is the subject of ongoing research.

At Rejuvime Medical, we offer clinically tested solutions that can help improve men’s physical performance, energy, and sex drive. The treatments include testosterone supplements, medication to trigger the body’s production of certain hormones, and a drug that can help block the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.

Making healthier lifestyle choices, such as an exercise routine that includes both aerobic activity and strength training, along with reducing alcohol and tobacco use, can complement your treatment and help minimize your symptoms.

A Customized Treatment Plan

Men may believe they don’t have the time for hormone replacement therapy, that it’s too complicated, or express skepticism about its effectiveness. At Rejuvime Medical, our nurse practitioners, supported by a physician, create treatment plans customized to your needs as part of a 3-step process that begins with providing an overview of our services. Men considering testosterone replacement therapy travel from Lafayette, LA, and throughout the state to one of our locations for treatment.

Thanks to advanced research, hormone treatments, especially bioidentical hormone treatment, are now more effective and safer than ever. You can learn more about male menopause treatment by requesting a consultation or calling us at (225) 960-1580.
