While the adrenal glands still help out with testosterone and progesterone production in later years, the amount supplied is extremely small. The biggest issue that we see is an end to normal estrogen levels when the body converts excess testosterone into estradiol. This causes an imbalance that leads to a condition called estrogen dominance – where estrogen is now unopposed by progesterone and testosterone because their levels have declined. Estrogen dominance leads to weight gain, which further increases testosterone to estrogen conversion.
Endogenous androgens are responsible for normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. These effects include growth and maturation of the prostate , seminal vesicles , penis , and scrotum ; development of male hair distribution, such as beard , pubic, chest, and axillary hair; laryngeal enlargement, vocal cord thickening, and alterations in body musculature and fat distribution. Drugs in this class also cause retention of nitrogen , sodium, potassium , and phosphorous, and decreased urinary excretion of calcium. Androgens have been reported to increase protein anabolism and decrease protein catabolism . Nitrogen balance is improved only when there is sufficient intake of calories and protein.
