Michael Jackson Could Have Been Going Through 'Male Menopause', says SimplyAgeless411

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In the six weeks since Michael Jackson's death, reports of anxiety, depression, insomnia and fatigue have all been tied to the cause as physical conditions that prompted his reliance on prescription drugs. But Beverly Hills anti-aging consultants Karen Norris and Eve Michaels of say Jackson could have been suffering from male menopause for years. You heard right.

Male menopause - clinically diagnosed as andropause - is the period in a man's life when the production of a vital number of hormones, particularly testosterone, begins to decline. Common symptoms include chronic fatigue, mood swings, depression, anxiety, memory loss, among others. Though symptoms vary they usually begin in the 30s and become significant between the ages of 45 and 60.

"Michael has been painted this dark, troubled soul, a fragile spirit, even a drug addict," says Norris, who authors a weekly online magazine at the SimplyAgeless411 website. "No one seems to have considered that he could have been suffering from symptoms of male menopause. The sad part is that it can easily be treated if you get to the right doctor."

Board certified physician Ryan Stanton, MD, is a hormone specialist based in Beverly Hills, and a frequent contributor and advisor to SimplyAgeless411 subscribers-only "ezine." He concedes that many dismiss the notion of a male version of menopause, but insists it is very much a genuine medical problem that requires diagnosis and treatment.

"It's sometimes called 'puberty in reverse' but that makes it seem like a mid-life crisis and diminishes the serious affects it can have on a man's physical and emotional well-being," Dr. Stanton says. "To think that it's just a phase that will eventually pass and not seek treatment for it can be dangerous."

Low hormone levels of thyroid, cortisol and testosterone are easily treated through a regimen of tablets and gels applied to the skin. For most men, the results are dramatic and immediate.

Norris says that men in their 40s, 50s, and 60s are contacting SimplyAgeless411 for advice and direction on hormone therapy. "They are fed up with going to their doctors only to be told that their blood tests are 'normal' and that there is nothing physically wrong with them," she says. "A standard blood test doesn't screen all of your hormone levels and will not reveal the full scope of a man's hormonal profile."

While the world still mourns the loss of Michael Jackson, we know there are circumstances of his life none of us will have to endure. He was a man of 50 with health problems. If you're growing older and realize after taking a long hard look at the man in the mirror that male menopause might be sneaking up on you, talk to your doctor about hormone therapy.
