Huge Puffy Nipples [or areolae in medical terms] are one of the most common manifestations of the situation known as gynecomastia. The word itself features Greek derivation as a lot of as well as biological terms are:
It is quite a common within males right from puberty to old age and, regardless of the age of the individual, the lot of mental anguish and distress. I know this first-hand from the work as a Fitness Instructor as I have been involved right from encouraging a guy to find out his doctor in order that he can obtain a diagnosis through to helping a guy right after diagnosis, particularly with exercise programs and nutritional advice.
I know that it is difficult for a lot of men, regardless of age, to talk about their big puffy nipples even to a fitness professional such as myself but it is so important for a customer to do this because then I can help him on a definite course of action. It is vital that this client gets a professional diagnosis and any advice and encouragement through someone like myself is not only great but necessary. So I repeat… the very first thing that anybody with the condition need to do is to make an appointment with their doctor 1st! I may be biased but the 2nd thing a guy needs to do is usually see a fitness professional!
For those teenagers males who have the problem, the good news is that will 93% will see it disappear inside 3 years, once the hormones settle down. For your 7% in whom the problem remains, the cause will be fairly easy for your physician to pinpoint. The remedies could well be adjustments of a dietary or lifestyle nature or medical measures in order to tackle the hormonal imbalance lying down at the root of those big fluffy nipples.
The two hormones involved are usually Androgen and Estrogen, with Female being the feminising one and therefore present in too large a quantity as compared with the Androgen hormone. In other words, the normal balance of the two hormones is annoyed.
In more mature males more possible causes come into play:
Some drugs/medications prescribed for other problems may cause hormonal imbalance. Again, a physician can rectify this.
Anabolic Steroid abuse will do the same. My advice is never to take any such substances in an effort to achieve quick muscle gains and turn a deaf ear to any of your peers who also tell you that it’s alright to do so. There has been many cases of bodybuilders which not only developed puffy nipples but had to resort to surgery to get rid of excess glandular tissue growth!
Cannabis abuse will also cause hormonal imbalance resulting in feminine-looking breast tissue, particularly under the areolae. My advice to the small number of individuals that I have encountered in the gym who smoked cannabis has always been to get help to give up the weed. In the united kingdom we have many people who can help, from doctors through’ to specialist counsellors and all western countries have a large amount of help available. For my component, I know from experience that getting a man on to a regular workout program can help enormously as the body produces its very own ‘feel good’ substances called hormones which help take away the craving for cannabis.
Alcohol in excess quantities will do similarly. What is an excess quantity? A maximum of twenty five units of alcohol per week will be reckoned to be the safe limit for men, an unit being a half pint glass of beer/lager or a small glass of wine. So enjoy a drink but don’t overdo this!
The ageing process can cause the hormonal imbalance resulting in gynecomastia. So all over 60’s should be aware of this and ensure that they do not carry excess weight, may consume too much alcohol and embark on regular exercise, with both cardiovascular and opposition work being necessary. Most health and fitness centres encourage seniors with decreased rates so take advantage!
There are many other possible causes, some serious within themselves, where gynecomastia is an added effect. These are dealt with elsewhere on my website but those over tend to be the most common causes of big puffy nipples.
Many men try to hide their particular condition by adopting poor posture, wearing baggy t-shirts, sweaters and so forth Some even spend $100 to $200 dollars [or more] on compression garments worn underneath these. Certainly, there are literally dozens of manufacturers of such underwear! It’s your choice if you would like go down this route but our advice here is to regard these types of garments as a temporary measure! Here are five pointers to bear in mind when looking for compression underwear:
Ensure that the dress fabric is of a three- dimensional stretch type.
Ensure that the garment is made of ‘lycrasoft’ or ‘tactel’ mixes for softness and therefore comfort.
Ensure that the fabric is ‘breathable’, enabling moisture to wick away and air to enter.
Ensure that the particular fabric has an anti-microbial feature built-in to prevent the growth of germs, mildew and moulds.
Ensure that the garments are of sufficiently high quality to withstand at least 30 extreme flushes.
However , sooner or later remedial action should be taken and the good news is that there are now available other drug-free, natural strategies. I have investigated many of these over the last two years and include the best on my website, together with lots more information for those men with big puffy nipples.
I really hope that the above help and advice is useful for you and remember, you do not have to resort to expensive surgery!
