10 Oct Suffering From Night Sweats?
Night sweats are so much more than just a little extra perspiration when you go to bed, night sweats are a very serious issue that can impact your quality of sleep, and in turn, your health. The more you understand about night sweats, the more comfortable you will be while sleeping and the healthier your life can be.
So, what exactly are “night sweats”?
Simply put, this is a term meant to describe excessive sweating during the night. These night sweats are so intense that they will completely soak your pajamas or sheets while you try to sleep. In women, night sweats, are often a type of hot flash that can happen during menopause, due to hormonal imbalances that come with this “change.” However, night sweats can impact men too.
Just like with women, night sweats in men can be associated to hormonal imbalances linked to low levels of testosterone or “low T.” While there are other serious health conditions that can cause night sweats, low T is the most common issue associated with this sleep issue.
While night sweats are a common side effect of low T, there are other issues that can come with low T as well, which is why it is so important to go in and get help if you are struggling with low T.
How can you treat night sweats?
If you are struggling with night sweats, one of the first things your doctor will likely look into is an issue with low testosterone. Your doctor can check your hormone levels and determine if testosterone is to blame. If this is the case, most medical experts will recommend that you get some type of hormone replacement therapy.
There are many different types of hormonal treatments out there, and here at LT Men’s Clinic, we proudly offer a number of testosterone treatments including patches, creams, pellets and injections. There are different options for everyone and the right treatment all depends on your lifestyle and preferences.
Of course, the first step is to have your testosterone levels checked to determine if low T is the cause of your sleep issues. Getting your testosterone levels in check can ultimately help you get better sleep and enjoy a healthier and more balanced life.
