While the Louisville Men’s Clinics mission remains to help men, who have sexual dysfunction issues regain control of their sex lives and restore intimacy back into their lives, we take all men’s health issues seriously. Depression is one of those issues. It isn’t talked about and often goes undiagnosed in men. This is even more shocking when you consider around 9% of men in the United States deal with symptoms of depression every single day.
As men, we tend to ignore the symptoms and chalk them up to other issues in our life such as stress at work or even just saying “I’m just not sleeping great”. Depression is a mood disorder that affects every part of you and because of that we want to give you some insight into the symptoms, signs, and what to do if you notice them.
Symptoms of Depression
While not everyone with depression will experience the same symptoms, some of the most common symptoms include:
- Feeling Sad or Empty
- Losing Enjoyment in Pleasurable Activities
- Weight Gain or Loss
- Too Little or Too Much Sleep
- Feeling Agitated or Tired
- Trouble Concentrating
In most cases these symptoms are things that we try to blame on other things in our lives, rather than taking a deeper look and seeking professional guidance. In fact, some studies have shown that in the United States as many as two-thirds of people who suffer from depression have yet to be diagnosed.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is vital that you seek help from a medical professional. In fact, there are many types of treatment for depression such as medication or talk therapy. The type of treatment will depend on the physician’s findings after your consultation.
