Male Menopause, a Challenging Tag |

Manuel Torres, Family Medicine Physician at Baptist Health Primary Care, explains menopause is an ovarian failure or an inability to produce sex hormones and men don’t technically go through a menopause where the testicles no longer function and work, which is why old men can still conceive.

According to him, a man that starts suffering from hypertension, cholesterol, diabetes, sleep apnea and obesity will have fatigue and he will start turning off his ability to make testosterone. And that is the perceived change in the male, but it can be fixed with some changes in his lifestyle.
