Low Estrogen in Men
Symptoms of Low Estrogen Levels in the Aging Male
A recent study on estrogen and testosterone levels in males not only indicated that many signs and symptoms of aging men are related to low testosterone levels, but are also related to low estrogen levels.
“This study establishes testosterone levels at which various physiological functions start to become impaired, which may help provide a rationale for determining which men should be treated with testosterone supplements,” Finkelstein says. “But the biggest surprise was that some of the symptoms routinely attributed to testosterone deficiency are actually partially or almost exclusively caused by the decline in estrogens that is an inseparable result of lower testosterone levels.”
