What Hormone-Related Problems Do Men in Their 60s and Beyond Face?
Whether you’re already retired or about to take the leap, you want to be able to enjoy your increased leisure time. Unfortunately, the aging process often brings medical issues that sap some pleasure out of what are supposed to be your golden years. Much of this stems from hormones.
The human body naturally produces 17 hormones. These hormones regulate the immune system, growth, metabolism and behavior when they are work together in balance. For men, one of the most important hormones is testosterone, otherwise known as the primary metabolic hormone.
Testosterone plays a number of roles in the body, including regulating libido and sex drive, keeping bones strong, and helping the body produce enough red blood cells, a function that impacts your energy levels.
When testosterone levels drop – and they drop from 1% to 2% each year after you turn 30 – you’ll start to notice a number of symptoms, such as:
- Low sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Lack of energy
- Sleep disturbances
- Moodiness, irritability or depression
- Weight gain
- Slow metabolism
- Thinning hair and skin
- Decrease in strength and muscle mass
- Low endurance
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Memory loss
