Weight Gain

Once we hit age 30 the levels of many of our hormones begin to decline. The lean body mass (LBM) of our organs starts to decrease, whereas the adipose (or fat) mass. Between the ages of 30 and 75, the liver, kidneys, brain, and pancreas atrophy by an average of 30%. The LBM declines by ~5% in men and 2.5% in women per decade. Meanwhile, the percent body fat increases in both sexes during the same period.

Although many people consider these changes as simply part of the aging process, they are actually a threat to health and longevity. For example, the amount of aerobic power is directly linked to the amount of LBM. In addition, the shrinkage of the vital organs means that they cannot do their jobs as efficiently as they once could, whether it is the heart pumping, muscles lifting, or kidneys clearing metabolic waste from the blood. Finally, as the amount of abdominal fat rises the risk of heart attack, hypertension, and diabetes also increases.

Sleep Disturbances

Sleep disturbance affects every facet of our existence. Many sleep-related problems can be overcome with testosterone therapy. Men with lower testosterone levels have a reduced sleep efficiency, with increased nocturnal awakenings and less slow-wave (REM) sleep. Studies have even shown that sleep disturbance caused by sleep apnea, a chronic breathing problem, may be linked to low testosterone levels.

In a 2011 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 10 men volunteered to have their testosterone levels checked during 8 nights of sleep restriction. They were only allowed 5 hours of sleep per night. The study found their daytime testosterone levels were decreased by 10–15% compared with the levels before their sleep restriction. Testosterone levels were lowest in the afternoon and evening. The study also found a progressive loss of energy over the course of the week.

Osteoporosis and Bone Mass

Osteoporosis is the gradual thinning that makes bones brittle and porous which in turn makes them more prone to fracture. If affects approximately 10 million adults in the United States, and is more common in women than men. Of people older than 50 years of age, one in two women and one in eight men are predicted to have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime. Individuals of Caucasian and Asian ethnicity are also at a high risk.

The early signs of bone loss and low bone density, which indicates a high risk of developing osteoporosis, is called osteopenia. Later in the course of the disease, sharp pains may come on suddenly and persist for around a week; in extreme cases, the pain may linger for more than 3 months. The pain may not radiate (spread to other areas), and it may be made worse an activity that involves putting weight on the area.
