    What is Andropause?

    Read More

    Andropause is also known as male hormone balancing/restoration. Once men reach the age of around 30 years, their male hormone, testosterone, begins to gradually decline. As men age, a number of changes occur that reduce the testosterone level available to the body and this alters the ratio between testosterone and another hormone, Oestrogen. This condition is now referred to as partial androgen deficiency of ageing men. This is a natural and entirely normal part of healthy ageing; however, it presents certain important problems and challenges to the male patient, including loss of muscle mass, loss of libido and erectile dysfunction.
