Aging Male Syndrome (AMS)

A man with aging male syndrome (AMS), also called male menopause, andropause, viropause, male climacteric, and late onset hypogonadism.

Men go through AMS between the ages of 35 and 65 (normally between 40 and 55) when their hormone levels (especially testosterone) go down. Testosterone is a hormone that helps maintain sex drive, sperm production, muscle mass, and strong bones. Testosterone levels decrease over time. This decline is normal in healthy males as they age. Unlike women who lose their fertility (ability to get pregnant) when they reach menopause, men do not lose their fertility. All men have different experiences, usually determined by your present lifestyle.

A decline in testosterone can affect a man’s body. AMS has many signs:

  • zFeeling irritable or angry
  • Less interest in sex
  • Problems sleeping
  • Loss of motivation
  • Erection problems
  • Loss of energy
  • Nervousness
  • Indedisiveness
  • Loss of drive at work
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Lower self-confidence
  • Increased urination
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Muscle loss
  • Bone loss
  • Hair loss

Testosterone Levels are affected by the following documented facts:

1. A tissue mineral analysis test to determine your entire metabolic mineral balance, which will assist the doctor to document the zinc, magnesium and calcium balance.

2. Nutrition - Eating too many carbohydrates and not enough protein causes elevation of aromatase enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen. This causes sugar metabolism imbalances including. three conditions called; hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, and pre-diabetic.
