As it suggests the condition could be a REAL medical phenomenon. According to a somewhat tongue-in-cheek study a doctor has researched the condition and concluded that men could experience cold and flu symptoms worse than their female counterparts. Dr Kyle Sue - a clinical assistant professor in family medicine - based the research on prior research and look to reasons why such a difference between the sexes could have occurred. The article - The Science Behind ‘Man Flu’ - was published in the British Medical Journal. It puts forward a number of strands of evidence that suggest men might experience worse symptoms than women when it comes to viral respiratory illnesses. One piece of evidence is that mouse studies have suggested that testosterone could dampen immune response to influenza - while some female sex hormones could enhance it. As well as that it says some studies on a small group of humans revealed that cells from pre-menopausal women show up a difference in immune responses to the common cold virus to those in men of the same age bracket. Research from the US also shows that there was higher death rates in males linked to flu compared to females of the same age. And stats from Hong Kong show men end up in hospital more often with the flu than women. Read More The study says: “‘Man flu’ is a term so ubiquitous that it has been included in the Oxford and Cambridge dictionaries. “Oxford defines it as ‘a cold or similar minor ailment as experienced by a man who is regarded as exaggerating the severity of the symptoms.’ “Since about half of the world’s population is male, deeming male viral respiratory symptoms as ‘exaggerated’ without rigorous scientific evidence, could have important implications for men, including insufficient provision of care.” It concludes: “The concept of man flu, as commonly defined, is potentially unjust. “Men may not be exaggerating symptoms but have weaker immune responses to viral respiratory viruses, leading to greater morbidity and mortality than seen in women.” Read More And there is some ‘vital’ advice for sufferers: “There are benefits to energy conservation when ill. “Lying on the couch, not getting out of bed, or receiving assistance with activities of daily living could also be evolutionarily behaviours that protect against predators. “Perhaps now is the time for male friendly spaces, equipped with enormous televisions and reclining chairs, to be set up where men can recover from the debilitating effects of man flu in safety and comfort.” Like us on Facebook
