Andropause Often Misdiagnosed, Experts in Hormone Therapy Say

Fri, 24 Feb 2012 13:38:35 EST

MIAMI, FLORIDA – Although millions of men suffer the effects of low testosterone each year, often times its symptoms are diagnosed first as depression.  Physicians at American Longevity Center, one of the leading healthy-aging medical facilities in the country, work with men suffering the effects of andropause. 

While symptoms may be similar, andropause is caused by a decline in the male hormone testosterone.  Depression in men may be caused by extreme stress, chronic illness, genetics, trauma or traumatic event.  While there are many other causes for depression in men, these can be some of the top contributors.

Andropause – so-named because testosterone is an androgen - results from the body's natural reduction in testosterone production after age 30. It leaves many men of all ages feeling tired, depressed and run down, when in actuality, it's just a simple hormonal imbalance. The condition can cause many other undesirable symptoms, including weight gain, irritability, and a decline in sex drive. Even though society is only just now beginning to acknowledge andropause, it's not an uncommon condition affecting four to five million a year.

It is estimated that only five percent of men seek treatment for andropause related symptoms.  One theory is that men themselves assume they are 'just depressed' or it can be that they were misdiagnosed with depression and are attempting to treat their symptoms with anti-depressants.

Fortunately, the expert physicians at ALC can quickly and easily diagnose and treat low testosterone with a simple blood test.  If the test proves testosterone levels are not optimal, hormone replacement therapy can restore testosterone levels to a healthy balance.  Often times the symptoms can be eliminated entirely.

Andropause can be difficult to diagnose if the proper hormone testing is not performed.  Because symptoms can be so closely related to depression, ALC physicians recommend men experiencing depression, fatigue, weight gain or loss of libido have a hormone test performed. The hormone test is a simple blood test and ALC is set up with all of the national blood draw facilities in most cities in America.
