There are several arguments about the syndrome. According to the research conducted by psychotherapist Jed Diamond, ignoring this syndrome could lead to more serious problems, like violence, anger, and depression. Another study revealed that depression associated with Grumpy Old Man Syndrome can lead to diabetes. As a result, some affected males (particularly in the United Kingdom) are undergoing testosterone replacement therapy as a treatment for this syndrome. However, according to Professor John McKinlay (from New England Research Institute), prevention and natural medication is more helpful and advisable, since there is a lack of formal research on the syndrome. McKinlay emphasises that proper diet and more physical exercise are the best prevention tactics to minimise the symptoms brought about by Grumpy Old Man Syndrome. He further stresses that men who undergo hormone replacement are prone to side effects.
People can come up with space travel, but a proven treatment for IMS, which affects every single man in the world, is still faraway from reality. Wonder which direction the world is going now??
