Doctor in Turkey gave 4 effective prescriptions against andropause, which begins with a decrease in testosterone, that is, male hormone levels, depending on the age that progresses in men.

In andropause, a natural process that develops with advancing age, testosterone levels gradually decrease, and as age progresses, various symptoms such as weight gain, sexual dysfunctions, and depression are observed, especially from the abdominal region. But ‘with some changes in lifestyle, andropause symptoms can occur later in life,’ said, giving 4 effective prescriptions against this condition, said:


Andropause is actually the wrong term. Because men do not have a “pause” that can be the equivalent of menopause in women. But from time to time, the testosterone produced by the testes and to a very small extent the adrenal glands can decrease and cause clinical complaints when the level in the blood falls below a certain value. Testosterone is released from the testes in humans under the control of the pituitary gland in the brain. Especially peaking in adolescence. It has an effect on the production of Sperm, hair growth, thickening of the voice, the formation of muscles and the production of red blood cells (erythrocytes), the formation and maintenance of masculine characters, and, of course, sexual functions. This hormone decreases relatively over the years after the age of 40-45. Other diseases can also accelerate this decline or cause it to come out at an earlier age. These are some genetic diseases (such as Klinefelter), diseases of the pituitary gland, the applied surgery, radiation therapy, chronic infections, long-term steroid use, renal failure in patients with testicular trauma or diseases, diabetes, excess weight gain, metabolic syndrome, such as diseases. In recent years, there have been studies that stress also reduces testosterone levels.

Here are 15 signs;

■ Decrease in sexual desire ( low libido)

■ Difficulty maintaining an erection

■ Shrinking testicles

■ Concentration and memory loss

■ Decrease in cognitive function

■ Don’t feel bad

■ Sleep disorders

■ Prone to depression

■ Increase in total body fat

■ Reduction in muscle ratio reduction in Hair n difficulty performing novelties requiring physical exertion Bone resorption and fractures

■ Sweat

■ Fire flashes

■ Reduced sense of confidence


1- Sleeping well, eating healthy and exercising regularly (a person should do the sport he is happy with, running without liking just to lose weight increases both the burden of mental stress and is already far from sustainable for a long time) increases testosterone levels.

2- In those with diseases such as diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome, the level of hormones can be increased to control these diseases and lose weight.

3- Even being away from bad habits such as smoking, alcohol is important in increasing the level of hormones in itself.

4- Especially shrimp and shellfish (such as oysters), vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, avocado, bananas, eggs and foods such as honey are also foods that have the potential to increase testosterone production.
