Male Menopause

Karen Thomas, MD wrote a great article in the Spring, 2009 issue of Radius on the “no-name condition” that she identifies as Male Menopause. Signs of age-related low testosterone include decreased sexual function, depression, decreased bone density, fatigue, more fat, less muscle, memory loss and higher risk of heart attacks. A simple blood test identifies the problem, and the treatment is injectable testosterone or pellets implanted in the buttocks. Cream can be tried, but recent evidence indicates that it might not be as effective. Treatment is very safe and usually really improves these symptoms.
