Midlife Crisis in Men

Welcome to your midlife crisis where men notice that their former youthful exuberance and ravenous virility are slowly diminishing when they reach the age of 40 and onwards.

The culprit? It's rather simple .... steadily decreasing levels of the male hormone testosterone.

This is when males experience hair loss, bone loss, insomnia or other sleeping problems, and problems with memory and calculation.

They often feel cranky, fatigued, and less motivated. Or sometimes these are accompanied by sweating and flushing, loss of muscle mass and strength, aches and pains, increased fat, decreased performance in the bedroom or erectile dysfunction, and depression.

Most men who reach midlife will basically experience one or all of these in varying degrees.

Rather similar to the female menopause, this male phenomenon is what is known as andropause. Also called Partial Androgen Deficiency in the Ageing Male (or PADAM) or Aging Male Syndrome (AMS), it refers to the natural and gradual decline of testosterone (or the male hormone) levels starting at the age of 30 and which continue to do so at a staggering rate of 10 percent per decade.

Since testosterone is a hormone that helps maintain sex drive, sperm production, pubic and body hair, muscle, and bone, the consequences of andropause slowly emerge as a man ages.

This “mid-life crisis” poses a great impact in the quality of most men’s lives. Life is finally taking its toll on the aging body. Moreover, andropause leads to other long-term and silent effects such as increased cardiovascular risk and osteoporosis.

But you can opt to battle it out and alleviate or even avoid the symptoms brought about by andropause. You should have a strategy that incorporates lifestyle approaches such as optimal diet, regular exercise, stress management, and reduction of tobacco and alcohol intake.
