What Causes Male Menopause?
Male menopause is likely caused by changing hormone levels. As the body ages hormone levels often decrease. This decline can start in your thirties and generally happens quite gradually. One hormone that can contribute to male menopause is testosterone. Low levels of this important hormone can lead to hair loss, sexual dysfunction and a lack of energy. Decreased levels of human growth hormone (HGH) can lead to weight gain and cardiovascular problems. Finally progesterone levels can decline letting the natural estrogen found in the male body function uncontrolled.
Hormone replacement therapy is a viable solution to many of the problems caused by declining hormone levels.
