Male Menopause Symptoms: Keep Your Man Healthy

Andropause is real. Men go through changes as they age because of a natural decline in hormones: central obesity, lost drive, not thinking sharply, doubting themselves, less energy, lowered libido. The good news—things definitely can be done about it.
Robert D. Willix, Jr., MD—Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of global age management leader Cenegenics® Medical Institute and CEO/CMO of Cenegenics Boca Raton—will appear for a frank, yet humorous, discussion on andropause (male menopause) July 5 on O2 Media’s morning show “The Balancing Act.”  The show airs weekdays at 7 am – 8 am EST/PST.

Willix delivers a lively segment focused on the reality of andropause and gives “The Balancing Act” audience—a show about women, for women—tips on how to spot “manopause” symptoms in their men and advice on what can be done to help men get fit and stay healthy.”

“Andropause really does exist. Practically all men go through changes as they age because aging is related to a natural decline in hormones. They develop central obesity, lose their drive and ability to think sharply, doubt themselves and have less energy and lowered libido. The good news is there definitely are things that can be done about it,” Willix said.

Willix says that both genders experience menopause, but a man’s is much subtler than his female counterpart’s. Sparked by a decline in androgens (male sex hormones), andropause typically begins in a man’s 40s. Testosterone levels actually begin to diminish in a man’s early 30s with the resulting symptoms—physical and mental—creeping over a 20-year period.

Willix and his colleagues at Cenegenics favor a proactive medical approach that is a 180-degree from the traditional “disease-based” mindset. As a result, Cenegenics’ comprehensive evaluations and customized patient programs have shown to decrease the risk of age-related disease, increase energy (physical/sexual), boost sex drive, improve muscle tone, decrease body fat and sharpen thinking.
