The Effects Of Excess Estrogen On Men?
Good morning. I am a man aged 20 years, would like to ask about my limbs being fat very quickly due to accumulated fat. In addition there are parts of the body part of the chest, hips and thighs have enlarged like a woman. Is this related to the excess of the hormone estrogen in me? How to reduce the hormone estrogen and how to shrink the enlarged body parts like the shape of a woman’s body?
Hello Ms. Jamal Iskandar Thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Basically, both men and women both have the hormone testosterone and estrogen. It's just that the levels are different in each sex, in women the estrogen hormone is more dominant / higher levels than the hormoneosterosterone, whereas in men the hormone testosterone is higher than the estrogen.
If in a man the estrogen hormone is found to have high levels or almost the same as the hormone testosterone, symptoms will appear like those of women, including:
chest enlargement / gynecomastia: the emergence of tissue growth in the daada, so that it appears more enlarged in the chest area
erectile dysfunction: erectile difficulties or also when maintaining an erection
infertility: due to the lack of sperm formation or even not containing sperm in the semen.
Many conditions that cause a man to experience this, it can be due to the occurrence of obesity, the use of certain drugs that are usually hormonal, being on hormone therapy, or other medical conditions that disrupt the balance of hormones in the body. To be sure, we recommend that you consult first with your doctor, avoiding anxiety or panic that will worsen your condition. In addition you can reduce the possibility of the amount of estrogen you experience by consuming vegetables such as broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower and cabbage, in addition to consumption of green tea and seeds can also help reduce levels of estrogen in the body, but you should reduce milk consumption and soy consumption. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
