Menopause and Andropause Insights
Are you wondering if your hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings or decreased sex drive, fatigue, and muscle loss are related to a change in hormone levels? You don’t wake up one day in menopause or andropause. Symptoms can occur as early as your early 40s, but more commonly in your 50s. You might experience irritability, brain ‘fog’ or notice mood swings, weight gain and insomnia. For women, heavier periods, bloating, headaches, and those infamous hot flashes – are all potential symptoms too.
You may be along the menopausal or andropausal timeline and what stage you’re at will drive your management strategies, and we are with you, every step of the way. You should address menopause or andropause sooner rather than later. Besides warding off symptoms, you can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes if you take action now. Your experienced hormonal management health team will guide and support you to feel more energized, well rested, be mentally sharp and keep the weight off and yes, experience improved sex drive again too.
