What is Andropause?
Andropause refers to a period of marked testosterone decline in men, along with the various symptoms that may result. Unlike menopause, andropause is slow and progressive with testosterone decreasing by nearly 1% each year after age 30. As testosterone levels gradually decline, energy, stamina and short-term memory are slowly affected. Only after experiencing major symptoms do most men begin looking for ways to feel normal again.
Bioidentical hormone specialist, Cheryl Abraham, FNP-C in Tucson, Arizona understands that testosterone is not the only hormone that may be out of balance in your body. Other hormones that may be affected include estridol, progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone cortisol, and thyroid hormones. All of these need to be in balance for your body to maintain peak wellness.
Some of the physiological changes you may experience during andropause include decreased lean body mass, increased fat, decreased bone mineral density, decreased body hair and skin thickness, reduced muscle mass and strength, diminished libido and sexual activity, reduced energy, impaired sleep quality, impaired cognitive function, irritability and depression.
Reverse the Signs of Aging
Although there are several medical conditions associated with imbalanced hormones, the most common cause is simply aging. When your body slows down its production of testosterone and other hormones, they naturally become unbalanced.
Luckily for modern men, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a medical breakthrough that can provide the necessary relief to embrace this time of life with confidence and comfort.
While traditional medical practitioners often consider these symptoms normal signs of aging that don’t require treatment, Cheryl Abraham, FNP-C in Tucson Arizona helps patients every day to experience the tremendous benefit of replacing declining levels of hormones through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Some of the benefits of bioidentical hormones are:
- Leaner Muscle and Decreased Body Fat
- Higher Bone Density
- Healthier Cholesterol Levels
- Rejuvenated Sex Drive
- Improved Memory and Concentration
- Improved Moods
- Higher Levels of Energy
- Improved Metabolism and Digestion

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical in their molecular structure to the hormones produced naturally within the human body. BHRT helps to relieve the symptoms and conditions of hormonal imbalances with little or no side effects.
By measuring and regulating the body’s hormone levels, BHRT provides the balance needed for healthy aging and treats diseases both preventatively and curatively. This natural hormone treatment has produced powerful, therapeutic results for many men suffering from andropause or low-T, and it may help you.
