MANopause was a term coined by a 2014 Time magazine article of the same name. While menopause affects women and is a natural decline of the female hormone estrogen, MANopause (also known as andropause) affects men, and is a progressive reduction of the male hormone testosterone. Testosterone is vital for building and maintaining bone mass, muscle mass, strength, and the production of red blood cells and sperm.
Tips for preventing Low T
A few simple lifestyle changes may help maintain your overall health, and healthy testosterone levels, including:
- Get between 7-8 hours of sleep per night
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Exercise regularly (at least 30 minutes per day)
- Practice daily stress management to minimize stress
- Review medications with your doctor to make sure they aren’t causing a drop in testosterone
What are the signs and symptoms of MANopause, or Low T?
Low testosterone levels may cause a number of symptoms, including:
- Decreased libido
- Difficulty getting or maintaining an erection
