The 6 stages of 'man flu' that every woman dreads

The 6 stages of 'man flu' that every woman dreads

For his study, Sue analyzed existing research on respiratory diseases, the common cold, intensive care, the flu and viral infections, looking at symptoms and recovery time for both men and women.

In his study, Sue also notes that the term man flu has become so common that it is included in the Oxford and Cambridge dictionaries, with Oxford defining it as "a cold or similar minor ailment as experienced by a man who is regarded as exaggerating the severity of the symptoms".

Some evidence also supported a finding that men suffer more from viral respiratory illness than women because their immune systems are less robust. He points out that some studies show that women may be more responsive to vaccinations, that some data from Hong Kong points to the fact men have a higher risk to be admitted to a hospital for the flu, and according to an American study, men die more from the flu than women of the same age. But men somehow tend to bemoan those symptoms more than that of women, hence the name - man flu.

"Further high quality research is needed to clarify other aspects of man flu", says Sue's article, with possible topics including the impact of environmental conditions on flu in males.

Or, are men simply whinier than women and act sicker when they have a bug?

Among them, the author points out that mouse studies have suggested that testosterone could dampen immune response to influenza, while certain female sex hormones could boost it.

Still, Klein, who was not involved in the new study, appreciates that Sue is helping to shed light on gender health differences, "which often are ignored".

Rich Swann Arrested, Charged With Battery, False Imprisonment and Kidnapping
The battery charge is a first-degree misdemeanor and could add up to a year imprisonment or 12 months probation and a $1,000 fine. Sadly, if the charges against him hold up, it would appear that the smiling Swann character might be nothing more than a facade.

He said his evidence suggests they really are more likely to be left bedbound by their illness. During the reproductive years, it is women who often suffer more severe disease, in part because flu is worse for pregnant women but also because women develop higher - nearly excessive - inflammatory responses to flu.

"Classic modes of energy conservation may include lying on the couch, not getting out of bed, or receiving assistance with basic activities of daily living, which could all be effective for avoiding predators", Sue explains.

Important new research also highlights the supreme palliative benefits of a sofa and a tv to #ManFlu sufferers.

Still, some research suggests that men have more severe respiratory tract infection symptoms than women, she said.

This theory could be tested with a clinical trial that divides men infected with a respiratory virus into two groups: the fate of men left to "fend for themselves" would be compared to outcomes of men whose every request is "met by a healthy designated caregiver", Sue proposed.

"The best advice for anyone affected is to rest at home, drink plenty of fluids and to take over-the-counter painkillers", said Stokes-Lampard said.

If a man complains of having a cold or flu it's high time one must take it seriously for a study reveals that men have a weaker immune system.
