Okay . . . a few days back, we spoke about women's menopause
Well today . . . I thought it was only fair that we address the men.
As we now know from that previous Health tip . . . a woman is diagnosed as being in menopause when she has gone 12 months without a menstrual period.
So what about the guy???
Do they go through a menopause also??? Or is this just a women thing???
Well, guess what???
Male menopause is actually a real thing!
And it's called "Andropause". It describes age-related changes in male hormone levels that occur at the age of 50 and older.
Now . . . male menopause is a condition that carries a set of symptoms that are linked to declining testosterone levels.
Okay . . . so what are some of these symptoms???
Well . . . that would be . . . mood swings and irritability, loss of muscle mass and reduced ability to exercise, a general lack of enthusiasm or energy, difficulty sleeping (insomnia) or increased tiredness, poor concentration and short-term memory, depression, weight gain and fat redistribution, such as developing a large belly or "man boobs" (gynecomastia)
Men also have "hot flashes" and "night sweats", which may coincide with other symptoms like erectile dysfunction, loss of libido and mood swings. And too much stress and/or anxiety in their life may help to trigger these symptoms.
And with this . . . many men go through what's called the "male PMS"
For men it's called IMS (Irritable Male Syndrome), And this can be attributed to men experiencing a drop in testosterone, the hormone that give them their "mojo".
Okay . . . so how can you guys out there fix this problem???
Well . . . as with women . . . we must eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, get enough quality sleep and reduce the stress in our life.
And if you're unsure that this is an issue for you . . . you can have a blood test taken to confirm whether you have a low level of testosterone or not.
So how do we fix this naturally???
Well . . . there are many foods that can help such as: fatty fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel which are rich in vitamin D
And guess what???
Vitamin D is a natural testosterone "booster" because it plays a crucial role in hormone production.
And in its active form . . . vitamin D functions as a steroid hormone in the body which is essential for sexual function. So increasing ones vitamin D may boost testosterone and improve other related health measures such as sperm quality.
So to my male followers . . . get your Vitamin D on today.
And ladies . . . if your male loved ones are in denial to this whole "male menopause" or "mid-life" crisis thing . . . feed them more fish and give them a vitamin D supplement each day.
