Male Hormone Imbalance, Irritable Male Syndrome Affects Relationships

Some men just don't want to admit to the fact that they are getting older and with the aging process comes change, not only with his body, but how he views himself and his personal relationship with someone from five months to 15 years plus.

For middle age men in denial, they rather blame relatives, children, the job and anything else standing in their way for things like emotional outbursts, forgetfulness even hot flashes.  But the truth is what causes some men to rage is fluctuating hormones due to: low testosterone a poor diet (such as skipped meals, overeating, or eating far too much junk products and drinking alcohol), too much sex or a lack of, no exercise, a lack of sleep, and more.

A man with a hormonal imbalance may not have a history of abusive behavior, but when going through a midlife crisis (30-55 plus) he just might start acting mean-spirited.  Therefore, this is why a partner will labor to love her man anyway despite a past abusive episode.  There may have only been one or a few episodes in the duration of the relationship, but not so bad that one needed to go to jail or the hospital.  Of course, this sort of behavior should not be tolerated and the victim should separate herself from her partner until he seeks help; however, for some women, they prefer to stay and help their moody men. 

Some women will do the following things:  perform the necessary research in an effort to understand the male body better and share tips with their men, make doctor's appointments, remind their men to stick to taking medication or supplements, diets and exercise, as well as sit with counselors to help sort out their personal issues with partners such as: fear, anger, unforgiveness and more.  Also, these women might have a faith and a solid support system to help them go through these trying mid-life times.

The woman who sees her partner struggling with emotional highs and lows, recognizes that this person she loves is not himself.  She sees his mood swings are triggered due to a number of issues including low testosterone.  Medical experts call this health issue in men Andropause or Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS).  There is help for these men 30 plus years who have declining low T.
