Ageless Andropause

Ageless Andropause

With age, it is common to experience changes in your body functions, sleep patterns, and energy levels. Like in women, these changes are normally caused by ‘hormonal imbalance’ in men. 

What Is a Hormonal Imbalance?

Hormones are chemicals in your body that are normally produced by the endocrine glands. Hormones regulate functions like:

 

  1. Appetite and metabolism
  2. Sleep cycles
  3. Heart rate and blood pressure
  4. Sexual and reproductive functions
  5. Overall growth and development
  6. Mood and stress levels
  7. Body temperature
hormonal imbalance occurs when your body produces too much or too little of the important hormones in your bloodstream with potential to significantly impact health and function. 
Testosterone is considered the primary male hormone, along with other hormones like cortisol, insulin, and thyroid hormones. An imbalance in any of these hormones may result in any of the 4 main types of hormonal imbalance in men.
  1. Andropause: Low testosterone levels can cause andropause, which is popularly known as ‘male menopause.’
  2. Adrenal fatigue: Low levels of cortisol, your stress hormone, can cause adrenal fatigue. Often resulting from long exposures to stress.
  3. Hypothyroidism:Underactive thyroid leading to low production of thyroid hormones, can cause hypothyroidism. Signs of an underachieve thyroid in men include low libido, erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation (60%), hairloss (50%), muscle weakness/cramps, fatigue (40%), depression (69%),  constipation (17%), feeling cold, weight gain,  and dry skin.
  4. Hyperthyroidism: An overactive thyroid gland can increase your metabolism and produce high levels of thyroid hormone. Signs of an over active thyroid include losing weight without trying, fast heart rate, pounding heart (palpitations), increased hunger, nervousness/anxiety, tremor of hands/fingers, sweating, sensitive to heat, more frequent bowel movements, enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), fatigue, muscle weakness, and sleep problems.

General guidelines that can contribute to hormone balance in men:

  • Consume a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
  • Include foods high in essential nutrients like zinc, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for hormonal health.
  • Minimize processed foods, sugary drinks, and excessive consumption of alcohol, as they can disrupt hormone levels.
  • Engage in regular physical activity, including both cardiovascular exercise and strength training.
  • Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise per week.
  • Chronic stress can disrupt hormone balance. Practice stress-reduction techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises.
  • Prioritize sufficient sleep, as sleep is essential for hormonal regulation.
  • Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night to support hormonal balance.
  • Maintain a consistent sleep schedule and create a relaxing bedtime routine.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight through a combination of diet and exercise. Obesity can contribute to hormonal imbalances, particularly insulin resistance.
  • If you suspect a specific hormonal issue, such as low testosterone, consult with a healthcare provider for appropriate testing and treatment options.
  • Avoid the use of anabolic steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs, as they can have serious side effects and disrupt natural hormone production
  • Consult with a healthcare professional before taking any supplements. They can recommend specific supplements like vitamin D, zinc, or magnesium if deficiencies are identified.
  • Schedule regular check-ups with your healthcare provider to monitor your hormone levels and overall health.
  • Discuss any symptoms or concerns related to hormone balance during these visits.
  • Minimize exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in some plastics, pesticides, and personal care products.
  • Avoid smoking and limit alcohol consumption.
