San Francisco Chronicle Letters to Datebook SFGate.com Friday, February 13, 2009 See testosterone for all it is not just a male sex hormone Editor Thank you to Carolyne Zinko for her story about Jed Diamonds description of irritable male syndrome (Grumpy not-so-old men, Monday). Andropause (testosterone decline with symptoms) is more widespread than the public (and many physicians) realize. According to the New England Journal of Medicine (Rhoden, January 2004), low testosterone occurs among about 9 percent of men in their 40s, 30 percent of men in their 50s, 42 percent of men in their 60s and 70 percent of men in their 70s. Three larger studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals during the past two years have shown that men with low testosterone do not live as long as those with normal levels. The largest of those studies (EPIC, Great Britain) enrolled more than 11,000 men. While Diamonds research has focused mainly on the psychological aspects of andropause, there are several physical sequelae as well: osteoporosis (associated risk of bone fracture); prediabetes and diabetes; increased body fat (especially around the midsection, the so-called beer belly that is linked with heart disease); abnormal lipids (blood fat); increased atherosclerosis (decreased circulation); and earlier heart attacks. It is time for men (and their spouses, partners and physicians) to become aware that testosterone in men is not just a sex hormone but a total body hormone, essential for normal psychological and physical functioning and to help offset risks for chronic life-threatening diseases.

Carolyn Zinkos article in the San Francisco Chronicle was titled, Could a mans midlife crisis be more than a state of mind, but be linked to his endocrine system instead? (review of Irritable Male Syndrome). Read Carolyne Zinkos review of Dr. Jed Diamonds book, Irritable Male Syndrome, reflecting the negative psychological aspects of testosterone decline in men: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/02/09/DDJ215H812.DTL&hw=Jed+Diamond&sn=001&sc=1000

Andropause is a diagnosis reflecting a decline in male hormones, called androgens, with symptoms, changes in blood and physical changes. (Andro mean male and gen refers to generate or generating maleness. The main androgen in men is testosterone. Andropause may also have other hormone imbalances, including increased estrogen (the main female hormone in women), a decline of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), and other possible hormone imbalances. The term andropause is Greek, with andro meaning male or man and pause meaning cessation or stopping (cessation of maleness). In Europe, the European Menopause and Andropause Society (EMAS) is composed of physicians and researchers with an interest in those topics (menopause is a decline in female hormones in women).
