Yes, the subject is men. According to a growing number of doctors, researchers and drug companies, women are not alone in going through the 'change of life'. Male-menopause stems from an age-related decline in testosterone.
Symptoms include irritablility, low energy, decreased muscle mass, weight gain and even hot flashes.
