Some lifestyle issues are precursors to male menopause. Male menopause is a very poor use of a term most people are familiar with, menopause. However, this word describes an end to egg and hormone production in females, not males. Males don’t end their hormone production, it simply slows down. In addition, with the right diagnoses, if a man is otherwise healthy, it can be reversed.
Drinking Too Much
Drinking more three drinks a week puts you at risk for low testosterone along with increasing the likelihood you’ll have issues sleeping and concentrating at work.
Eating a Poor Diet
Eating right for your body type, genetics, and health is an imperative everyone needs to face. However, if you’re a male with male menopause you’ll want to get busy eating well now so that you can reverse the issue and start feeling like yourself again.
Experiencing a Lot of Stress
Stress and anxiety can wreak havoc on anyone but the existence of this type of stress can cause hormonal balance issues that lead to even more problems.
Being Too Sedentary

Cigarette smoking is bad for everyone. However, it leads to low-testosterone in most men who smoke. For this reason, men who smoke who are in their 40’s are often suffering from impotence or problems getting and keeping an erection. Studies are still out on whether cannabis smoking or vaping causes the same problems or not.
The thing about anxiety is that sometimes there are hormonal and vitamin deficiencies that cause it. If you are feeling anxious even if you have no other symptoms get your testosterone and vitamin levels especially Iron checked. It’s really the first thing that should be done for anyone who has sudden severe anxiety onset.
There are a lot of ways a man can prevent going through male menopause, unlike female menopause, it’s not a foregone conclusion. If you avoid drinking too much, eat right, and keep moving you’re less likely to have the problem. If you end up with a problem but are otherwise healthy, hormone replacement therapy does wonders and reverses the issues.
