WARNING for men: Alteration in testicular physiology blamed on ibuprofen use
(NaturalHealth365) Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are one of the most commonly used medicines. Unfortunately, their side effects can put you at risk. For example, you’re probably familiar with ibuprofen side effects like a heart attack and stomach bleeding. But recent studies reveal a new side effect – alteration in testicular physiology.
The side effects of ibuprofen are already concerning. However, they’ve only been studied in patients taking normal, ‘recommended doses.’ The big problem is: people often take a lot more ibuprofen than recommended.
What does this mean to all the men out there? If you’re taking higher doses of ibuprofen, you could have a higher risk of these dangerous side effects.
Serious WARNING for all men taking ibuprofen, according to researchers
Researchers did a study on men under age 35 in France and Denmark. The results showed that the men who took ibuprofen ended up with a problem called compensated hypogonadism. The bottom line: your body has to work harder to keep testosterone levels normal if you take ibuprofen.
Researchers also think that using ibuprofen long-term may eventually cause primary low testosterone. This can cause changes in mood, the decline of muscle mass, and reduced libido. They also found that compensated hypogonadism resulted in a short-term reduction in sperm count.
A low sperm count can impact on your fertility. But studies also showed that men with both overt and compensated hypogonadism have a higher risk of heart problems. And, it’s worth noting that the study was only done for 6 weeks – with the young men taking only 3 tablets per day!
Another study done at Stanford University School of Medicine found that defects in sperm count increase the risk of early death.
Are you at risk for hospitalization or death from ibuprofen?
Is ibuprofen safe? You may think this drug is harmless, but it’s estimated that more than 105,000 people are hospitalized (yearly) due to the side effects of NSAIDs.
Researchers continue to discover more ibuprofen side effects. What makes it more concerning is that many people take high doses of ibuprofen. More than 25 million Americans deal with chronic pain. This leads many people to exceed the recommended dose of ibuprofen to try to reduce their pain.
In fact, 11% of users take more than the recommended daily limit of ibuprofen.
Trying to control pain with ibuprofen increases your risk of experiencing ibuprofen side effects. Especially if you never treat the cause of your pain.
Don’t turn to over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen. Instead, try natural anti-inflammatories like turmeric and natural pain relievers like vitamin C.
