August 19, 2010 (CHICAGO) — Mood swings, lack of energy and decreased sex drive are usually associated with women and menopause.
However, men who are going through “the change” can experience symptoms, too.
Low testosterone, or “Low T,” may be happening earlier and more often than expected.
As the body ages, hormone variations are normal, but when is it time to take action in men?
Low testosterone is estimated to affect up to 5 million men and can cause a host of mental and physical symptoms.
The uncertainty is whether it is a medical condition needing treatment or something men should learn to live with.
The symptoms in Michael Andruzzi were subtle.
“Lethargic, no energy – zero,” said Andruzzi.
Only in his late 30’s at the time, the fit and muscular Andruzzi knew something was up.
