Posted November 11, 2018 04:30:33The average age of a woman’s first child has risen to 36.3, according to the latest census data, a number that is predicted to rise as women get older.
The increase has been driven by an increasing number of young women who want to have children as well as a decrease in men opting for fertility treatment.
While this may seem like a positive trend, it is also putting pressure on men’s bodies, and a new study found that men with higher levels of testosterone and testosterone-lowering drugs are more likely to suffer skin problems and suffer the health effects of aging.
“I think the biggest thing that is going on with men’s health is the increase in testosterone,” said Dr. James F. Tash, an assistant professor of dermatology and cosmetic surgery at Duke University.
“The testosterone increase is probably one of the factors driving this increase in men’s disease.”
A common misconception about the effect of testosterone on men is that it causes men to lose their masculinity.
While it can, there are other factors that can also affect men’s sexual drive, and some researchers have speculated that the testosterone increase may be a factor in the decline in testosterone levels in men.
“There is definitely a relationship between testosterone and men’s physical health,” Tash said.
“It’s probably not the only factor, but it is certainly one of them.”
Some men experience low testosterone levels.
Some men experience very low testosterone.
“Tash explained that when testosterone levels rise, the body’s ability to produce collagen, the collagen that supports the skin and helps prevent wrinkles, can be affected.
The collagen is necessary for a healthy skin barrier.”
We know that there are hormones that are associated with collagen production in the skin, and the more testosterone that is in the system, the more collagen is produced, which is a good thing,” Tach said.”
But there is a lot of variability with how much testosterone a person has in their system.
“In addition to having a higher testosterone level, men who have low levels of these hormones are also at higher risk for skin problems.”
It’s possible that these changes in men are caused by a combination of factors, including stress, a lack of exercise, and other factors,” Tish said.
For some men, the skin is particularly sensitive to the effects of stress.”
Men with higher stress levels, such as those with depression, are more susceptible to skin problems,” Tchas said.
While these men may not necessarily be at increased risk for developing skin problems, there is also a potential for these issues to persist if they are not actively treated.”
You have to address stress and depression, but you have to do it in a way that is appropriate for the individual,” Tashi said.
