Q:

My wife has been using bioidentical hormones for several months now and she is very happy with the results. She is seeing a BodyLogicMD physician here in Dallas and she tells me that men have also experienced positive results with the hormones. For a while now, I thought that my declining energy levels and that “getting older” feeling were normal. But after doing some research, it seems like many of the symptoms I’m experiencing are very similar to the male menopause (which doctors are calling “andropause”) and I’m starting to think that maybe I can use hormone therapy too. You don;t hear about the “male menopause” as often – is this a real condition? Can I be tested to see if I have it?
