While menopause symptoms have been covered extensively because so many women experience this phenomenon, we shouldn’t ignore night sweats in men as this is a fairly common problem for men as well. There are a number of reasons why the sweating men experience is difficult to pinpoint, some of them universal and some specific to men.
The first cause of night sweats in men we’ll discuss is andropause. Yes, andropause. It does exist. Well, at least more and more people are beginning to think so. Just as women experience a reduction in their production of certain hormones during menopause, many feel that men experience a reduction in testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone during an andropause phase.
Whether you are a man or woman suffering from this condition you likely struggle for comfortable sleep and peace of mind. The clinical name for night sweats is sleep hyperhidrosis or nocturnal hyperhidrosis, but you simply know it as night sweats. I fought this unpleasant condition for years, but after several doctor and therapist visits, I finally found effective help, and now I’m here to do my best to help you get through the night!
I discovered several things to help me, both in terms of diet and supplements as well as cool products to wear or to use while I fought my sweating while sleeping. But it took me some time and money before I settled on a few that I knew really worked. With this site, I hope to share with you what really worked for me and hopefully save you some of the time and money I lost. But everyone is different; I will try to uncover the most common and serious conditions that can cause this problem, including those well beyond my own experience. What causes night sweats for one person may be very different for another.
The causes of excessive sweating vary wildly, but you’ll always find one thing in common: they all have a trigger. With a little research, I discovered how the various causes of excessive sweating are often related to each other. Unfortunately, you may find many of the triggers of excessive sweating difficult to manage, which compounds the challenge for physicians attempting to help their patients.
I hope my list will provide a sound foundation for your research into this uncomfortable and frustrating physical phenomenon, but I encourage you to study further as well.
Adolescents are inclined to perspire a good deal. The reason might be psychological, because they’re confronting changes in their bodies and are being exposed to things which inaugurate them to adulthood. Simply put, teens in their pubescence stages tend to be more sweaty than those who are older or younger.
