What is male menopause?
Q: What is male menopause? Apart from age, what triggers it in males and are there supplements (like estogen/hormones etc.) as in the case of females?
A:Male menopause is very controversial: male hormone levels do decline with age but there is no clear cut clinical manifestation or definite age at which it can be said to have happened. Many illnesses can cause a reduction in male hormone levels, but then it is not menopause, but part of the illness. Replacement for it is also controversial. In fact, recent findings, especially those published in July this year, have made even replacement for female menopause more controversial.
