Why is it that upon hearing the words “hormonal imbalance,” one assumes we ought to be talking about women. This is sheer ignorance that only female is impacted physically and mentally by hormonal imbalance.
Hormonal imbalance is the shift in the level of hormones that happen naturally as we age, and it affects both male and female. Considering that most of the people have been believing the misconception mentioned above, we are going to shed light on symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men.
Some of the hormones produced in a male are testosterone, estrogen, and prolactin. Testosterone is responsible for bone and muscle growth and strength, deepening of voice and appearance of facial and pubic hair when puberty starts. It is also responsible for maintaining normal moods.
But excessive testosterone can lead to stunted growth, liver disease, increased risk of blood clots and heart attack, mood swings, irritability, etc.
Estrogen, found in its predominant form, estradiol is responsible for spermatogenesis, erectile function. Sperm count. Estrogen imbalance can lead to excessive weight gain especially around the hip, abdomen area. It can also increase the possibility of a stroke, heart attack, prostate cancer.
Prolactin is responsible for controlling various behavior and strengthens the ability of human, male and female both, to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are most favorable for survival. A higher level of prolactin can cause erectile dysfunction in men, infertility, low sexual desire and decline in testosterone level.
Unlike in female, the impact of hormonal imbalance in men is slow and gradual, and the apparent symptoms appear later in life. These signs and symptoms are often misdiagnosed as being associated with a disorder or age-related disease.
Following are the common signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men:
Age-related balding is a result of testosterone being converted into molecules. In the case of hair, the production of dihydrotestosterone. It is an enzyme which reduces the level of testosterone, resulting in stunted hair growth and balding.
Testosterone regulates muscle mass, which when declines result in excessive weight gain. Another reason for accumulation of fat cells could be a high-stress level which escalates the level of cortisol.
If you are unable to sleep correctly, there is a strong possibility that your testosterone level is either high or low.
The decline in the testosterone level along with an imbalance in other hormones can result in erectile dysfunction. Another reason could be increased in level of prolactin, which could be due to problems in the pituitary gland.
