Late onset hypogonadism of men is not equivalent to menopause

Late onset hypogonadism of men is not equivalent to menopause

Many men who reach middle-age start to experience symptoms that resemble those of menopause; reduced libido, lack of energy, weight gain, fatigue, depression and osteoporosis, to name a few. Therefore these conditions are frequently seen as being equivalent, and late onset hypogonadism has therefore been called "andropause", "male climacteric", "male menopause" or "MANopause.

However, this is very misleading. Here we will contrast the differences between late onset hypogonadism, also known as testosterone deficiency, and menopause, and explain why these condition should not be regarded as being equivalent.
