Most people know that hot flashes are a common symptom women suffer during menopause. It is a surprise to many men, however, to learn that hot flashes are a common symptom of male hormone imbalance, particularly andropause. Fortunately, if you are a man experiencing hot flashes, you are not alone and treatment is available.
Hot flashes occur when the body suddenly feels warm despite no change in the room temperature. In men, hot flashes are directly related to sudden cessation of hormone production, particularly estrogen and testosterone. Testosterone levels decline in all men as they age, and many men already have low testosterone levels in their mid-30s or early 40s. Low testosterone levels result in incorrect signals sent to the hypothalamus (in the brain), which indicates that the body is overheating and needs to cool down. The hypothalamus responds by increasing blood flow in an attempt to cool the body, resulting in sudden sweats, clamminess and hot flashes.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men can help relieve hot flashes in men with low testosterone levels. Although testosterone is an important hormone to replace in men with andropause, it is very important to balance all of the other hormones as well. In conjunction with complete male hormone balance, your Genemedics Health Institute doctor will also customize a nutrition plan, supplement regimen, exercise program and stress management plan that will help reverse your symptoms of low testosterone, improve your quality of life and improve your health.
