There has always been debate about whether or not a form of male menopause actually exists. The menopause has been associated with women and been treated as the curse of middle-aged women's lives for centuries. But now, a 25-year study has found that the male menopause, or 'manopause', could also be a very real health complaint among the opposite sex.
Dr Helen Webberley, our dedicated GP, explains that “the male menopause is a gradual process and is "officially" known as Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome. It doesn't happen suddenly, as it does with women, it gradually creeps up on men as their natural testosterone levels decline.”
Dr Helen explores in detail the subject of male menopause in an article published by Huffington Post, which you can find here.
