Hot Flashes in Men in San Antonio, TX

Hot Flashes in Men in San Antonio, TX

Many think of hot flashes as a problem that only affects women. This isn't true. Although they occur more frequently in women, hot flashes in men are real and prevalent. Frequent hot flashes can change your life; if you're interested in treating hot flashes safely and effectively, please call (210) 960-9899 or contact Dr. Bernice Gonzalez online.

What is a Male Hot Flash?

Male hot flashes are virtually identical to women's hot flashes. Sometimes called hot flushes or night sweats (hot flashes at night), male hot flashes consist of these general symptoms:

  • Redness in face
  • Redness in neck
  • Increase in temperature
  • Perspiration
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid heartbeat

After the hot flash is over, many men experience a feeling of extreme cold. This feeling is commonly called chills or cold sweat and is your body's reaction to the flash. Hot flashes can come at any time and last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.

What Causes Hot Flashes in Men?

Almost all male hot flashes stem from low testosterone, also known as Low-T. Low testosterone itself is a form of hormonal imbalance that stems from these two root causes:

  • Andropause: Also known as the male menopause or manopause, this is a condition that men see as they age. After men reach a certain age, usually in their 50s, their body produces less and less testosterone. A lack of testosterone can lead to fatigue, weight gain and, of course, hot flashes.
  • Prostate cancer: Treatment for this cancer typically involves the restriction of androgen hormones, including testosterone. This reduction in androgens can lead to many of the same symptoms as andropause, including hot flushes.

How to Stop Hot Flashes in Men

There are a number of remedies for hot flashes and ways to treat hot flashes in men. The most effective of these is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BHRT replaces your lost testosterone and androgens with hormones that are biologically identical to those your body produces naturally.

The hormones of BHRT are derived from natural sources, which make them a safer and more effective solution than the synthetic hormones of conventional replacement therapy. As always, the best course of action is to consult with a doctor. These other hot flash remedies may be recommended:

  • Medication
  • Herbal remedies
  • Vitamins and supplements, including black cohosh for hot flashes
  • Diet and lifestyle changes

Hot Flash Relief

The best way to treat hot flashes is with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which can fight Low-T and restore your testosterone levels. If you're interested in treating hot flashes in men with BHRT, please call (210) 960-9899 or contact Dr. Bernice Gonzalez online.
