Menopause” --- Every Man’s Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis
By: Gary I. Weinberger, M.D., F.A.C.S
the United States 35 million to 40 million men between the ages of 40
years old to 70 years old have some symptoms of male menopause. With
the aging “baby- boomer” generation this number is expected
to grow to 70 million U.S males by the year 2010.
symptoms of male menopause include lack of energy, weight
gain, an increase in body fat, loss of muscle mass, decline in
the size and consistency of the testes, loss of libido, increasing
erectile dysfunction (ED), loss of the ability to control anxiety,
depression and difficulty with concentration and memory loss. Dr.
Weinberger states that beginning in the third decade of life, male
testosterone levels begin to decrease at a rate of one percent
Male menopause was described as
a syndrome by a variety of medical experts as early as the 1940’s. The results of a careful study reported
in a 1944 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association
described the use of testosterone injections to rapidly and thoroughly
relieve the symptoms of male menopause. A variety of articles followed
the study and made a compelling case for diagnosing and treating these
symptoms in aging males. Yet, for the last 60 years, conflicting theories
about male menopause, the lack of convenient treatments, the discomfort
men feel about discussing their symptoms, as well as the complications
associated with androgen therapy have kept doctors from accepting the
syndrome as a treatable condition.
Weinberger recognizes times change and people change. “Baby-boomers” are
resisting the effects of aging as no age group ever has done before.
People are living longer and expect far more from their “golden” years
than did their parents. Men are now freer to discuss their sexual performance
with their doctors, wives and friends without fear of being ridiculed
or ignored. New treatments introduced over the last few years have also
made doctors more willing to bring up the subject of male menopause and
its symptoms with their patients.
of the treatments first introduced to address erectile dysfunction
(ED) were surgical implants, penile injection therapy and vacuum
therapy. In the past several years, pharmaceutical companies have released
the prescription drugs Viagra, Levitra and Cialis as treatments for
erectile dysfunction (ED). Consumers are aware that these drugs have
multiple side effects. In many instances, these drugs have to be taken
within an hour of sexual activity, and often do not provide the desired
result if alcohol or fatty foods were consumed just prior to their
use. More importantly, Viagra, Levitra and Cialis fail to address the
other symptoms associated with male menopause.
searching for a safer, more effective, all-natural product
to treat male menopause symptoms, Dr. Weinberger was introduced to Markis
Rix Laboratories, a nutriceutical manufacturer of men’s healthcare
products. Under the research, guidance and supervision of Gary I.Weinberger,
M.D., a new, all-natural male daily supplement, PRIAXIN was
formulated. PRIAXIN is
composed of the highest quality, all-natural compounds
that target the causes and symptoms of male menopause.
