Andropause also known as male menopause is said to be the result of a gradual drop in testosterone. Andropause is caused by the reduction of hormones testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone in middle-aged men. When andropause occurs, it is considered to be a deficiency state in which the hormone testosterone goes below the normal range for an aging male. Testosterone assists the male body in building protein and it is crucial for normal sexual drive and stamina. Testosterone also contributes to several metabolic functions including bone formation, and liver function. A steady decline in testosterone levels with age (in both men and women) is well documented.
