Male Menopause Warning Symptoms
Male menopause is a term that refers to certain hormonal changes experienced by some men as they age. It is local knowledge that as men, when we age our testosterone levels tend to reduce.
Science and extensive research teaches us that a man who is fit/healthy, his testosterone levels rake in at 300-1200 Nano grams per decilitre. The testosterone levels of a man reaches peak during his 20s and by his 3rd decade (30s), the average man testosterone level begin going down by 1% annually.
This means, by the time we hit seventy years our testosterone levels are likely to hit 50% of pre-menopausal levels. Such a shift in some cases causes emotional, psychological and physical changes in the body.
Moreover; our testosterone levels varies rather widely. Research has proven that there are men in their 8th decade that have testosterone levels reaching 600 Nano grams per decilitre and there are men in their early thirties whose testosterone levels are at 150 Nano grams per decilitre.
Such alterations are referred to as male hormone shift deficiency in Andro-pause/androgen of the male aging. Let us look at what these two terms mean…
