There are many men out there who deal with hormonal imbalance, particularly as they age. However, while many men are aware of issues with low testosterone, or low T, men can also have issues with their estrogen levels as well. While estrogen is most commonly known as a female hormone, men also need a healthy amount of estrogen in their bodies to stay healthy.
Men should always have a low amount of estrogen in their bodies, but if they start producing too much estrogen, it can come with several unwanted side effects. This includes the following symptoms:
- Extra water retention or unexplained puffiness
- Extreme fatigue or tiredness for days at a time
- Stubborn belly fat that you can’t get rid of
- Issues with getting and maintaining an erection
- Low libido
- Mood swings and emotional outbursts
- Loss of lean muscle mass or tone, despite working out
- Gynecomastia or sudden, excess fat in the tissue around the breast
These are all serious health issues and indicators that you may be struggling with an estrogen issue with high testosterone. But the good news is, there are treatments available that can help men lower their estrogen levels and maintain a balanced level of estrogen and testosterone in their bodies.
