Testosterone is more commonly known as the growth hormone in men, which is produced in the testes. It is responsible for libido and sex drive in men. However, testosterone is more than just about erection and sex. Testosterone is also the hormone responsible in fighting depression, regulating insulin, glucose, and fat metabolism, increasing muscle mass, and strengthening bones. Aside from these, having an optimal level of testosterone can reduce one’s risk of having cardiovascular and Alzheimer’s diseases.
Although the body is the one producing this hormone, testosterone levels decline with age. Men between the ages of 20 and 30 have the highest testosterone levels, but it slowly start to decline in early and mid 30s. This drop is in the level of testosterone is called andropause or low testosterone.
Most men notice their low testosterone symptoms as soon as they appear, but for some it takes a lot of time in recognizing the decrease in energy and sex drive. Failure to recognize this scientific change and taking action, can seriously affect the way you perform your daily activities. This drop in testosterone levels can not only interfere with your relationships, but can also have an adverse effect on your mood.
Andropause is a sad reality that men face, and men with low testosterone levels will experience the following symptoms:
Research suggests that a man’s testosterone levels begin to drop by 1 to 2 percent annually upon reaching the age of 40. However, it is not until they turn 50 years old do men experience the effects of a low testosterone level. Men feel various symptoms as enumerated above in their golden years. It is a good thing though that an increasing number of men are seeking therapy to combat the decline in testosterone.
