Many things can accelerate the decline of hormone levels in both sexes. Stress levels, diet, nutrition and lifestyles all contribute to hormone imbalance. Currently, one of the main culprits is stress. This is true because the stress hormone, cortisol, is built with the same building blocks as our sex hormones, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen. The more stress we have, the more cortisol we demand and the fewer building blocks we have to make our sex hormones.

I applaud Dr. Oz's answer on Oprah show regarding andropause or as we like to call it Man-o-pause! For men Testosterone reaches a peak at around age 25-30 and then goes down at a rate of 1-2% per year which is why as Dr. Oz points out that the onset of symptoms is very slow and not very obvious to men. The changes with menopause tends to happen over a shorter period of time so women are more aware of the changes. Men may notice a lack of energy, declining memory, increased moodiness, a decrease in libido and/or erections and a loss in muscle tone, increase in fat and a loss of stamina. Levels of testosterone are easily checked in a blood test and can be corrected with testosterone therapy. In addtion to improving all of the above symptoms, replacing testosterone also decreases the risk of heart disease and alzheimer's disease and can improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels among many other benefits. Many of the changes that men tend to chalk up to aging can be improved with testosterone therapy.

It is important for men to realize the importance of stress reduction, diet and lifestyle on their hormone levels. Men should find ways to reduce their stress such as meditation, exercise, reading, journaling or enjoying nature.
