Depression & Hormones in Men
Does hormone imbalance cause depression in men? Yes it can!
Depression is one of the most common symptoms associated with a declining testosterone level or Andropause. Testosterone is involved in many of the body’s functions. Men with low testosterone are 400 % more likely to be diagnosed with some depression.
The other hormone that can be associated with depression is T3 or thyroid hormone. Low levels of thyroid hormone can be a factor in the decreasing levels of serotonin with is the most important neurotransmitter for mood.
