  • 남성도 갱년기를 겪는다. 중년 여성의 전유물로 여겨졌던 갱년기가 남성에게도 나타나는 것이다. 40세 이후 남성의 신체기능 저하는 최근까지 자연적인 노화현상으로 치부됐다. 그러나 평균수명의 연장과 의학의 발달 등으로 건강한 노년 생활에 대한 욕구가 커지면서 남성의 갱년기 증상이 발견되기 시작했다. 특히 20대에 최고조로 증가하는 남성 호르몬(테스토스테론)이 점차 줄어들다가 40~55세 사이에 급격히 감소하면서 여러 가지 신체적, 정신적, 심리적 변화가 나타난다. 남성호르몬 감소의 첫 번째 징후는 부부관계에 관심이 없어지고, 좀 더 진행되면 만성피로를 느끼고 얼굴이 달아오르거나 식은 땀을 흘리며 손발이 저리기도 하다. 그리고 감정이 잘 조절되지 않아 사소한 일에도 짜증을 내게 되는데, 남성 호르몬 부족 때문에 나타나는 이러한 증상들을‘남성 갱년기’라 한다. 이번 호에서는 서울아산병원 비뇨기과 안태영 교수와 성의학클리닉 연구소 강동우 전문의의 도움으로 남성 갱년기에 관해 자세히 알아본다.

  • In this study, we tried to identify the relationship between subjective health Status and job stress and andropause symptoms of middle-aged male who work.. The data was based on a survey of male aged 40 to 59 in four cities and collected by surveying 154 people with jobs. The general characteristics of the difference in andropause symptoms were marital status and job satisfaction. 68.83 percent of the subjects experienced andropause symptoms. There was a negative correlation between subjective health status and job stress(r=-.204, p=.011). The correlated factors of andropause symptoms included subjective health status(r=-.248, p=.002) and job stress(r=.341, p=<.001). Factors influencing andropause symptoms are job stress, subjective health status. There is a need to develop and apply nursing intervention programs that can reduce job stress and improve subjective health status in order to effectively manage menopause symptoms of middle-aged male who work.

  • This study is to identify the relationship between andropause symptoms, resilience, and retirement anxiety in the context of convergence. It is also to identify the factors that affect retirement anxiety by checking these relationships. For data collection, the study surveyed 87 middel-aged men who were residing in S City from July 20 to October 25, 2019. This study found that middle-aged men's anxiety about retirement has a significant influence on andropause syndrome and resilience. In addition, those with andropause syndrome had lower resilience and higher retirement anxiety than those without symptoms. Therefore, it is necessary to consider ways to efficiently overcome retirement anxiety in middle-aged men, reduce andropause symptoms, and enhance resilience.

  • Testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) is normally observed in elderly men and is a clinical and biochemical syndrome, characterized by a decline in plasmic testosterone levels resulting in a significant decrease in quality of life. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a mixed extract of fenugreek seeds and Lespedeza cuneata (YHM) on TDS. Rats were divided into three groups: the negative control, YHM-40 (40 mg/kg), and YHM-80 (80 mg/kg) groups. After 4 weeks of YMH administration, an increase was observed in the plasmic testosterone levels, vastus lateralis muscular strength, forced swimming time, total sperm counts, and motile sperm counts in YHM-40 and YHM-80 groups compared to the negative control group. Moreover, sex hormone binding globulin, the epididymal fat pad, total plasmic cholesterol, and triglyceride levels were significantly decreased in the YHM-fed groups. However, prostate specific antigen, aspartate aminotransferase, and alanine aminotransferase levels did not differ among the groups. These results suggest that YHM may enhance testosterone levels in elderly men and alleviate TDS without common side effects.

  • The level of testosterone in the blood decreases in males with age, resulting in menopausal symptoms. As the rat reproductive system is very similar to humans, the rats(Ratus norvegicus) commonly used in scientific studies, have been domesticated for more than one hundred years. Therefore, in order to establish an animal model of male menopause, this study was conducted to obtain data on the changes in major hormones and biochemical changes, including testosterone and weight changes in reproductive organs in the two groups of 22 and 50 weeks old rats. The weights of body and reproductive organs were greater at 50 weeks of age than at 22 weeks of age. However, DHT level in serum was higher at 22 weeks than at 50 weeks. In addition, significant increase in AST, ALP, total protein, triglyceride and total cholesterol levels was detected at 50 weeks. The levels of testosterone, LH and sperm concentration and motilitywereremarkably decreased in 50 weeks old rats. The serum FSH level did not change between the two groups. Therefore, it appears that 50 weeks old rats are appropriate and eligible as an animal model of male menopause. Further studies are needed to confirm the changes in various factors according to periods of growth through continuous experiments.

  • This study examined the degree of climacteric symptoms, hardiness and middle-life crises. The survey period was from 25 May to 10 September, 2013 with workers in small business workplaces in Jeonnam. The data was collected by a self-questionnaire and SPSS Win 18.0 was used for data analysis. As an accounting hierarchical analysis result, middle-life crisis was affected by exercise, and the relationship with the spouse and child with an explanatory power of 25.1%. Additional input climacteric symptoms showed more explanatory power (21.1%). In addition, exercise, education, relationship with the spouse, relationship with child, income, and climacteric symptoms were predictors of a mid-life crisis with explanatory power of 42.7%. Therefore, to successfully overcome mid-life crises, a range of nursing interventions should be provided to make a positive self-control and intimate relationship with the spouse of middle-aged men.
