Editorial Reviews

Staten Island Advance
Dr Tan, a physician in geriatric medicine at the University of Texas, saw patients exhibiting certain symptoms and started doing his own research, eventually writing the book, The Andropause Mystery: Unraveling truths about the Male Menopause.
Journal of the American Medical Directors Ass.
This book is 186 pages long, is well indexed, and has a selected bibliography for each of its 10 chapters. It is organized as a treatise on andropause and is easily consumed when picked up at any point. The style is simple and lends itself to rapid reading. For physicians it is a good jumping point into the literature and understanding the issues from the patient's point of view. For patients, it is well presented, understandable, and issue focused. For example, patients would appreciate the chapter covering psychological impact of aging on sexuality. It is well organized and covers many of the questions that our older patients and their wives typically pose.

Although it's not the first thing we look for, low testosterone can certainly cause fatigue," says Robert Tan, MD, of the University of Texas Medical School, author of The Andropause Mystery (AMRED Publishing, 2001).

Often they write them off to "aging." Other times, "they don't want to admit they're losing it. They want to feel in control," says Robert Tan. "Lack of energy and loss of libido are very predominant symptoms of transition," says Tan, author of The Andropause Mystery. Many men who do have hormone replacement can have reverse the symptoms of andropause. Bones densities can increase. Muscles can strengthen.

Now, it's only fair we get a little of our own back as hormones buffet an increasing number of men. Indeed, is that laughter I hear out there? Calm yourselves. What about sympathy for those poor beleaguered men? How about a tear or two? This is actually no laughing matter, experts say. Andropause is a legitimate physiological condition, notes Dr. Robert Tan, a geriatrician at the University of Texas in Houston, an international expert on andropause, and author of The Andropause Mystery: Unraveling Truths About The Male Menopause.
