Andropause is the male equivalent of menopause
Menopause in female patients is a topic that is widely researched and discussed but andropause is commonly ignored. However, many studies have shown the male patients experience a similar stage when they reach the age of 40. As male patients age, testosterone levels decrease substantially. This causes an increase in fatigue, depression, irritability, aches, pains, reduced sexual interest, and general signs of chronic degenerative disease. Typically when hormones in men are discussed it is usually in reference to the abuse among athletes, which has given rise to the perception that all testosterone is dangerous. Add to that the unfounded fear that testosterone causes prostate cancer and the misunderstanding escalates.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Low testosterone levels are treated using physiologic doses. This has been proven to be safe and protective. Supplementing testosterone has been demonstrated to increase strength, lean body mass, improve sexual response, prevents bone loss, and protects against cardiovascular disease. It has also recently been shown that men with higher levels of testosterone live longer.

Frequently Asked Questions About Testosterone Therapy
Q: SHOULD I BE CONCERNED WITH PROSTATE CANCER?
Testosterone has been demonstrated to not cause prostate cancer. The hormones that have been shown to enlarge men's prostate and may play a role in prostate cancer are dihydrotestosterone and estrone
Q: HOW DO I AVOID CONVERTING TESTOSTERONE TO DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE AND ESTRONE?
Patients on a managed testosterone replacement program are regularly checked for estrone and DHT levels. If these levels are elevated, then your healthcare provider will add additional supplements or prescriptions. These may include natural supplements such as DIM or aromatase inhibitors.
Q: CAN I TAKE TESTOSTERONE IF I HAVE PROSTATE ENLARGEMENT ALREADY?
If you have prostate enlargement already, then we have to monitor your DHT levels. If your regular exams show an elevated level, then your provider will add additional supplements and/or medications to your program.
Q: IF I TAKE TESTOSTERONE WILL MY TESTICLES SHRINK?
The answer is yes. Anytime you take testosterone, your own body's production is reduced. The more you take the more it ceases to be produced. This can lead to the shrinking of testicles. This is not permanent and testicles will still have the ability to produce testosterone.
