For many men, persistent stress is a way of life. Whether it be mental, physical, or emotional, this stress can have a wide range of effects on men’s sexual health and overall well-being.
The human immune system responds to stress by releasing hormones like cortisol and adrenaline from the adrenal gland, a small gland which sits above your kidneys. These hormones are also responsible for increasing your blood pressure and heart rate. When you are exposed to long-term stress, your adrenal glands work overtime and after consistently releasing these stress hormones, your body becomes accustom to the level of hormones in your body. As time goes on, adrenal glands aren’t able to produce the necessary hormones to handle the stress and the body becomes fatigued. The specially-trained physicians at Prime Men’s Medical Center can test for, diagnose, and treat this condition to get your adrenal glands functioning properly again.
Adrenal Fatigue and Libido
In addition to releasing hormones to help handle mental, physical, and emotional stress, the adrenal glands also affect the libido, otherwise known as the sex drive, which is necessary for healthy sexual functioning. If your stress levels are consistently high, your adrenal glands are working in overdrive to regulate your body. This extra adrenaline complicates both the libido and the ability to maintain a healthy erection necessary for intercourse.
Signs of Adrenal Fatigue
In addition to simply feeling fatigued and a decrease in healthy sexual function, there are a variety of symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue. Not all patients diagnosed with the condition will show signs of every symptom; still, whether you experience one or many of the symptoms, the professionals at Prime Men’s Medical Center can determine if you are in fact suffering from adrenal fatigue.
We’ve listed a few of the most common signs of adrenal fatigue our patients have reported experiencing:
- Fatty/salty food cravings
- Trouble sleeping
- Sexual problems
- Losing muscle mass
- Memory issues
The common symptoms of adrenal fatigue are also shared by a variety of other health conditions. So, while you may experience symptoms related to adrenal fatigue, it doesn’t necessarily mean adrenal fatigue is your condition. This is why testing and diagnosing are so critical in men’s health services. Once our medical professionals determine adrenal fatigue is the case, they create a customized treatment plan to bring your hormone levels back to normal and allow your body to recover and begin to thrive. Without the appropriate testing, diagnosis, and treatment, adrenal fatigue can lead to other serious medical problems such as cardiovascular damage.
