What is reality and what is fiction when we talk about this syndrome?
It is sometimes equated to female menopause, but this is just one of the false myths associated with andropause .
Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome or andropause (also known as late male hypogonadism) begins to manifest itself from the age of 40-45 years . The testicles reduce the production of hormones, but this process is slow, very gradual, so it often goes unnoticed by many men.
The body accuses it through a series of symptoms , some more striking than others, although not all men suffer from them (and they do not manifest themselves with the same intensity). Among them are:
-Decreased sexual desire
- Erectile dysfunction .
-Reduction of the size of the testicles .
-Loss of muscle mass and strength.
-Alterations of memory and concentration.
-Increased fat in the abdominal area .

The syndrome may be mild in some cases, but it is real. However, many men deny it for lack of information and, sometimes, for the derogatory component that is still dealt with in some circles.
- Sexual desire and erections decrease. True.
By lowering the amount of testosterone, libido, and the number of spontaneous erections (those that occur during sleep, for example), they are also reduced. In any case, it is a slow process; it does not happen overnight.
- Every man over 40 years of age with sexual dysfunction and decreased desire suffers from andropause. False.
Before stating anything, a patient with these symptoms should receive a specific evaluation to determine what is causing these conditions.
- Any male with sexual dysfunction needs testosterone. False.
As in the previous case, a diagnosis must first be carried out in order to establish the indicated treatment. Later, the specialist will say if the hormones are adequate or not.
- There are factors that can accelerate andropause. True.
Starting at age 30, normal aging in men causes a 1% drop in testosterone levels annually; This percentage gradually increases from the age of 45. However, those men with risk factors (diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, obesity ...), will probably notice a greater and more abrupt decrease in these levels.
- Diet helps alleviate the effects of andropause. True.
Following a healthy diet and leading a healthy lifestyle serves to maintain energy, muscle mass and strength. It also helps improve mood and rest better.
- Strength decreases. True.
Andropause usually produces a decrease in bone density (other factors, related to aging, also influence) and a reduction in muscle mass.
- Body hair is moderated. True.
By decreasing testosterone production, so does the amount of hair on the body.
- Andropause is male menopause. False .
In women, the decrease in fertility occurs in a shorter and more concentrated way, while the production of sperm in men decreases more gradually; therefore, their reproductive capacity gradually falls.
- Emotional disturbances may appear. True.
Low testosterone levels could alter mood, generally causing a feeling of sadness. Also, seeing yourself in the andropause process can cause a lack of self-confidence. In some cases, in addition, concentration problems have been diagnosed.
- Breasts come out. False.
Body fat increases with andropause and gynecomastia (sensation of increased sensitivity or inflammation in the mammary glands) can occur, but that does not mean that the breast grows like a woman's.
- Sleep disorders occur. True.
Hormonal changes can affect sleep patterns (either with insomnia or with a continuous feeling of drowsiness), although it does not have to be severe. If this alteration continues over time, see a doctor.
