Does memory loss increasingly affect your day to day life? Forgetting an occasional name or where you put the keys are not uncommon but concentration issues, memory loss and cognitive impairment are all bigger risks for men going through andropause and can be caused or expedited by hormonal or metabolic issues. Alzheimer’s and dementia are typically associated with men over the age of 65 but memory loss, fogginess and cognitive impairment are increasingly being seen by younger and younger men. A general sense that your cognitive processes are not as crisp, or foggy, versus your 20s, 30s or 40s can be a direct result of andropause and a hormonal imbalance.
If these symptoms are affecting you it is possible to improve them through testosterone and hormone replacement therapy to deal with a hormone imbalance, thyroid disorder, or adrenal fatigue. These therapies, in addition to improved nutrition and regular exercise can help get you back on the right track.
Testosterone helps regulate cortisone, which is a stress hormone, and affects the efficiency of our brain’s neurotransmitters. When an individual suffers from lowered testosterone levels they lose some of their ability to effectively regulate their cortisol levels, which causes a malfunction of neurotransmitters and consequently the pauses, or lapses, in memory. It is typical to start to notice these memory lapses at the onset or andropause when one’s testosterone levels are reduced. This is one of the reasons why you see higher incidence of cognitive impairment in men than you do in women.
