Posted on Wed, 22 Jul 2015
Question: My husband is 59 and experiencing serious night sweats. AT 56 my menopause night sweats have not been as bad.(men are babies though). He also has a much lower sex drive! Really not ok! Is this male menopause & what can be done? He does not drink alcohol or caffeine & we do have a air conditioner, he sweats I freeze.
Thanks for your help.

Dr. Hanif warmly Welcomes you!

Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully worked through your case, and I can realize your health worries. Being your physician, I assure you not to worry as I will take care all of your medical concerns.
 
No, it isn't male menopause neither is there anything like that in medical calculations of his age. It may be due to some ongoing chronic or acutely manifesting disease process of liver, lungs, thyroid or any other organ like pancreas, spleen etc etc ( just to list some).

Don't worry. What you have to do is take him to the physician and get his complete check up done. Physician after doing complete physical examination, will run a battery of tests on him including but not limited to Complete blood count, Thyroid profile, Fasting lipid profile, Fasting blood sugar levels, Liver and kidney function tests, Viral hepatitis screenings, HIV screening, Tuberculosis testing. Others include a Chest XRay, an abdominal ultrasound etc.

After evaluation he will be able to diagnose and treat accordingly.

Hope it helps. If you have further concerns contact me back. If satisfied with the answer, Please give a five star rating and close the discussion. Have a wonderful time ahead.
 

Best Regards!
