Night Sweats in Men: The cause and solution

Night sweats in men are in fact very common, so there’s no need to be alarmed if you are suffering from them during the night.

What are male night sweats?

Male night sweats create a feeling of intense heat or a slight chill, usually resulting in interrupted sleep.

Why does it happen?

It might be that your bedding or bedroom is simply too warm, or other environmental factors could be affecting your sleep. Serious night sweats in men are caused by a hormonal imbalance, and the malfunctioning hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls our body temperature, can cause night sweats, too. Once your body’s core temperature spikes above a threshold called the thermoneutral zone, the body reacts by sweating to remove this apparent excess heat.

What are the causes of night sweats in men?

Several factors increase the likelihood of night sweats, including:

  • Low testosterone levels
  • Stress
  • Poor diet and fitness
  • Sleep problems
  • Side effects of medication

How to combat night sweats in men?

The best strategy to reduce night sweats is to treat whatever underlying condition is causing them.

Night sweats in men are often caused by an imbalance of testosterone. Natural bioidentical hormones can treat this by balancing the hormones and stopping night sweats.

It is also worth analysing your lifestyle choices to ensure that you are following a well-balanced diet and a varied exercise regime.

When to visit your GP

If you find yourself waking up in a pool of sweat nearly every night, you should visit your GP, as this could be an indication of a more serious problem. It is recommended that you monitor your body temperature twice daily for a week, to ensure that you aren’t suffering from a fever and to keep a note of any other symptoms you may be suffering. Night sweats aren’t usually the only symptoms when something is wrong.
