Should male menopause supplement androgen?

   Like women, men also have menopause. But unlike women, men have no obvious signs of entering menopause and are more likely to be ignored.
   The scientific name of male menopausal syndrome is “male late-onset hypogonadism.” With age, middle-aged and elderly men will experience decreased testosterone levels and decreased sexual function. At the same time, symptoms such as mood swings, sleep disorders, muscle loss, muscle strength decline, body hair loss, skin changes, bone density decline, and visceral fat accumulation may also be combined. Usually from the age of 40, androgen levels in men will decrease at a rate of 2% to 3% per year. At the age of 50 to 60, symptoms related to decreased testosterone levels may appear. Generally speaking, most men have no obvious clinical symptoms, and some middle-aged and elderly men will have some non-specific symptoms.
  Menopausal women can pass the menopause smoothly through proper estrogen supplementation, and men can also help pass menopause by supplementing androgens. But it should be noted that it varies from person to person, and some patients cannot supplement with androgens. Therefore, patients need to go to a regular hospital for related examinations. After a comprehensive assessment of testosterone levels and clinical symptoms, the doctor will decide whether the patient needs to be supplemented with androgens.
  In addition, it is impossible to solve all the problems caused by male menopausal syndrome with androgen supplementation alone. It is necessary to improve lifestyle and manage psychological problems at the same time.
