As a general rule we men suffer from many routine ailments such as the odd headache, upset stomach and an injury caused on the playing field. Unfortunately because for us guys there are certain health problems that we are not very comfortable with to talk to our friends with on a night out. Men suffer from their fair share of embarrassing health problems and often do not know what to do about it. So what are the most common?
- Snoring. I do not why, but I never see, to come across many women that snore in the same league as a man, maybe I have just been lucky. Approximately twenty percent of men between the ages of thirty to thirty five snore regularly. Snoring can be a sign of disturbed sleep, so if you have been tired throughout the day you are more likely to snore. In more sever cases it can become sleep apnoea, this means that you will wake often in the night and be very restless and then very tired sleepy days to follow. Overweight people are more susceptible to snoring, so losing weight is a good idea. By speaking to your doctor, they can refer you to specialists who can arrange for you to do various self-tests to dig deeper into the problem.
- Piles. For me, this is one of the scariest male ailments. If you see blood in the toilet pan after you have been to toilet, then no doubt you will panic and think the worse. The fact is if you do see blood in your stools, then nine times out of ten it will be piles. They are caused by constant pressure on the blood vessels inside the anus. They are often bought on by training on the toilet. Other common symptoms include sever itching, pain and even lumps. Seek your doctors advice if they persist more than a week or less if there is bleeding evident. To help yourself eat plenty of fruit and vegetables this will make you more regular and avoid your body getting constipated.
- Hair loss. Just because you are losing hair, it does not mean you are going bald at all. Men and women alike lose up to fifty and a hundred hairs each day. This may sound a lot but it is nothing out of the ordinary. Premature baldness although can affect men in their 20s and 30s, I am afraid it is in our genes. If you are genetically linked to premature baldness then there is not much you can do. Stress although can significantly speed the process up, so if you are worried about losing your hair then maybe you need to take it easier. Do not fear though if you used to put dye your hair every week, you can be rest assured that that does not contribute to hair loss.
