Treating Depression Due to Low Testosterone
Millions of men experience depression each year. What depression looks like varies drastically per person. While everyone feels sad or irritable sometimes, or has trouble sleeping occasionally, these feelings and troubles usually pass after a couple of days.
Signs commonly found in men experiencing depression include fatigue, sleeping too much or too little, irritability, difficulty concentrating, indecision, anger or hostility, stress, anxiety, substance abuse, and sexual dysfunction.
While depression has a number of emotional and psychological causes, the role of hormones cannot be overlooked. Depression in men is more likely to occur when hormone levels are imbalanced, specifically hypogonadism, or low testosterone.
Testosterone is an integral component of many of the body’s functions. The emotional effect of the other symptoms of andropause including erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, hair loss, etc. can be enough to push a man into depression. However, many men do not recognize, acknowledge, or seek help for their depression. They may be reluctant to talk about how they are feeling, or the effects it plays in their daily lives.
Depression is not a normal part of aging in men or women. Fortunately, testosterone can be replaced through hormone replacement therapy.
