There are so many things that can lower the confidence in men. In this article, I will talk about some of the top men’s health concerns and how you can deal with them, so stick around if you want to know more about them.
1. Beer Belly
As we age, our metabolism tends to slow down and coupled with an unhealthy lifestyle of binge eating and drinking copious amounts of alcohol, no wonder a lot of men accumulate fat in their midsection, more commonly known as the Beer Belly.
Not only is having a beer belly unattractive, but it may hamper your ability to last longer in bed because it is too hard to carry your body with too much excess weight.
Dealing with this is simple, in theory, but all you really need to do is execute this in practice. Eat healthy and nutritious foods and stick to an exercise plan that you can commit to.
2. Excessive Sweating
Sweating is a natural body process that helps cool down our systems. However, some men sweat more than others and this could lead to shyness or embarrassment.
There is a condition known as hyperhidrosis which is characterized by a person’s ability to sweat profusely. If you suffer from this condition, consult with your doctor on the best possible treatments for you.
3. Back Hair
A lot of men have chest hair, but they do not like having hair on their backs. They not only look unappealing but it can also be a cause for embarrassment as well.
Back hair can be removed temporarily or permanently. Temporary solutions include waxing, shaving, or the use of hair removal creams. More permanent solutions would require laser hair removal. This can be quite costly, but it can help you deal with the problem for good.
4. Receding Hairline
Male Pattern Baldness is actually quite common. A lot of men may experience the thinning of their hairline by the age of 30 and when they reach 50, they will either go bald or their hair will fall out completely.
You can do something about this, though. Some treatment options include surgical hair restoration or the intake of some prescription medications.
Snoring affects plenty of men all over the world. There are a lot of factors that might lead to this such as your sleeping position, underlying medical conditions, among many others.
To help reduce your snoring, you might want to sleep in such a way that improves your oxygen circulation. If you have sleep apnea or other serious conditions, consult your doctor immediately.
6. Excessive Belching
Burping or belching is actually a normal function of the body. It is usually caused by the expulsion of extra air that was accumulated or swallowed during eating and drinking.
Although it is normal, excessive belching may bring with it some other symptoms including abdominal pain, nausea, and headaches.
If the condition is pervasive, maybe it is time to visit your doctor.
7. Passing Gas
Flatulence is characterized by excessive farting. Do not get me wrong; farting is quite normal, especially if you have accumulated a lot of stomach gas as it is your body’s way of expelling it.
To help you reduce your risk of flatulence, avoid eating too many beans or foods that are rich in fiber. Furthermore, reduce or outright eliminate soda or carbonated beverage consumption as well.
8. Body Odor
Men sweat more than women, which is why they tend to smell. Bacteria can thrive in warm and moist environments and if you are perpetually sweaty, then you will suffer from body odor.
Still, it is quite easy to deal with this. All you really need to do is have a good shower and use antiperspirants.
9. Sexual Dysfunction
Erectile Dysfunction, lower libido, and premature ejaculation are some sexual dysfunctions that are common in men. In fact, roughly 40% of the male population may have or have suffered such conditions in their lifetime. It is best that you consult with your doctor to help you treat these conditions since it may include a combination of a balanced diet, good exercise routine, and some medications.
