Unlike the female menopause, the male menopause (also known as andropause) is often an underdiagnosed condition. It is due to an abnormally low testosterone level of what would be expected at that age. It can be due to conditions such as Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Sometimes other reasons can cause these symptoms such as anxiety, depression and stress.

If you feel like something may be wrong, it’s really important you get it checked out. Male menopause does not have the same distinct phases as female menopause but lowering testosterone levels can still impact physical, emotional and mental health issues.
