Low Test

Is Male Menopause Real?


Male Menopause – Low Test symptoms may be to blame for a sluggish sex drive, fatigue, and erectile dysfunction (ED).

Do you experience fatigue and irritability while finding that your sex drive is lacking in enthusiasm?

You may even have some issues with ED, also known as erectile dysfunction. It is possible you could be going through “the change?” Midlife hormonal fluctuations aren’t just a “woman issue.” Mature males can have menopause as well — in the form of low testosterone (Low T).

Low Test can bring down your self esteem.

While the term “male menopause” or andropause, humorously known as “men-o-PAUSE,” is misleading, the physical condition is real.

What does Low Test mean?

Male menopause differs from women’s experience. It involves a gradual decline in testosterone instead of a sudden hormonal drop. This slow decline makes the symptoms of male menopause subtle and challenging to detect.

Men’s testosterone levels fall naturally as we age on average. It happens about 1% a year after age 30. By the time you reach 70 years of age, your testosterone levels may drop more than half its peak. However, aging is the main cause of Low Tests. There are other conditions and medications, such as testicular cancer, a scrotum injury, radiation treatment, and mumps. They are all possible culprits.

How can I know if it is Low Test?

Do you feel tired, irritable, or disinterested in activities that used to bring you joy, including sex?

If you think  you may have Low T, Core Medical Group can order a blood test. However it is only after ruling out other causes, such as depression. Symptoms of Low Test, such as fatigue and erectile dysfunction, may also mimic depression. It can also present as a side effect of heart disease, obesity, or other health condition. Core Medical Group will help you figure out if an underlying medical condition, such as an autoimmune disorder, is causing your Low Test results.

After reviewing your Medical History forms, we’ll schedule blood work and a comprehensive evaluation. Our national lab network allows us to find one near you. Additionally, we can send a Core Medical Group phlebotomist to your Florida location. If your existing blood work meets our criteria, we may utilize it if the necessary tests are present and it’s less than one year old.

Once we review your completed Medical History forms, we will schedule you to get required blood work plus a comprehensive medical evaluation. We have a national network of labs and will locate one close to you or schedule a Core Medical Group phlebotomist to come to your Florida location. If you already have blood work and it has all of the necessary tests required and is less than one year old we may opt to use it if the proper biomarkers meet our medical criteria.
