Irritability and mood swings are some of the lesser focused on symptoms that are having a severe impact on men’s happiness, relationships with their lives and family, and work life. Irritability can be caused by a hormonal imbalance and often one they are less to notice themselves than some of the other symptoms. Unfortunately, their friends, families and co-workers can find it more difficult to overlook irritability from low t.
High levels of the stress hormone cortisol, coupled with lowered levels of testosterone will typically produce mood swings of varying degrees in men called, Irritable Men Syndrome or IMS. IMS can lead to depression in some men and aggressive acting out in others. Sometimes a man will experience both at different times.
Some of the characteristic behaviors of men with Irritable Men Syndrome are:
High estrogen levels can also contribute to Irritable Male Syndrome and mood swings in men. With the declining testosterone levels and increased estrogen levels it is also not unusual to see an increased incidence of crying in men who were not used to crying in their first 40 years of life. Weight gain can cause increase fat cells which increase estrogen production. With increased stress, which diminishes testosterone levels due to increased cortisol levels, combined with the causes of stress you will find greater frustration at a time the person has a lessened ability to deal with it.
The solution to treating Irritable Men Syndrome
Men often find it difficult to admit they have Irritable Man Syndrome, more so than some of the other physically obvious symptoms of andropause. In a heightened state of stress it is common to find fault with everyone else except oneself and hormonal causes for sadness, anger or frustration are not something men are comfortable admitting to themselves. Hormonal imbalances causing mood swings and irritability are real and can be fixed.
