Anorexia: more and more men, hit a man out of every 4 women
It is CONSIDERED to be almost exclusive to women, but as well as for other diseases that are thought to affect only the female gender, anorexia they also suffer from the males: one out of every four women on the three million total in Italy. Men who suffer from eating disorders live in a condition of discomfort greater with respect to the patients and receive the diagnosis late. With the result that, because of the prejudices of the males are ashamed to seek treatment, and physicians recognize and diagnose the most difficult.

Of the argument speak to the specialists of the Association of medical endocrinologists (Ame) which highlight that underestimating the problem are the doctors themselves, as a result of an injury, the diagnostic of the genus. The age at which it presents the disease as well as for girls is around the age of 14-15. In the last few years, refer to the experts, there were cases even from the age of nine. But for these very young there are still no centres or trails as anorexia has always been considered a 'disease from the females'.

"anorexia of the men has manifestations similar to those of women but often the obsession with the physical form can be expressed through a sports activity, compulsive, in addition to a eating behavior harmful," explains Simonetta Marucci, endocrinologa expert of eating disorders. "Researchers for years have excluded men from most of the studies and standardized clinical protocols and diagnostic only on the female population - he adds - it would be important that health professionals began to recognize symptoms and to understand the emotions and the experiences that these kids experience, to be able to intervene effectively with the appropriate tools and strategies".

Other disease always 'read' the female is precocious puberty, which in the last half-century, it is anticipated more and more. And contrary to what you may believe, is not just about the females. "The reasons of this process are to be found mainly in the worsening of the environmental conditions, in particular in the environmental pollutants that are found in the atmosphere, in water and in foods, which have the ability to stimulate the endocrine glands and, particularly, testicular function and ovarian," says Vincenzo Toscano, past president of Ame. "The presence of pollutants in the environment and in the food alters this physiological process anticipating it, even 2-3 years. Precocious puberty can be cured, but the treatment must always be decided on a case-by-case by a specialist and shared with the parents."

the Other pathology always associated to women is osteoporosis. In reality even the men are sick: to a lesser extent than to women, but with more serious consequences. Suffers about 1 million men (one in ten men, the women, one out of four ). "In men, it manifests later, in the media, after the age of 65 (compared to 55 of the woman). Although osteoporosis is a disease of the third age, _ concludes Alfredo Scillitani, endocrinologist Ame.- there are forms that manifest themselves in particular situations and can also hit young people and even young".
