Andropause

Vitalia’s Approach to Andropause

Andropause can begin in some men between the ages of 40-50.  It occurs as a result of a drop in male hormones (androgens) that brings about the male equivalent to menopause, andropause.

Symptoms of andropause include:

  • feeling burned out
  • decreased mental alertness
  • decreased stamina
  • sleep disturbances
  • Irritability
  • decreased libido
  • erectile dysfunction
  • prostate problems

Andropause can be detected by testing the blood or saliva for hormones.  Many types of hormone panels exist; from basic to comprehensive.  At Vitalia, we take into account, your insurance coverage when deciding what testing should be ordered.  With that information, we recommend the specific test(s) that may support the decisions made for your treatment.
