Women everywhere roll their eyes when their man says, “I think I’m coming down with something”.

While ladies of the world have the ability to function when sick, men often have to be waited on hand and foot as they battle the infamous ‘man flu’.

However, before you breathe a sigh of frustration, there’s something you need to know: ‘man flu’ may actually be a real thing. Dun, dun, dun.

According to new research, males may actually suffer more when they are struck down with flu. This is due to their high levels of testosterone, which weaken their immune system.

On the upside though, it was found that a woman’s body is better able to fight the awful virus.

So the next time your man feels the sniffles coming on, you may want to hold your tongue and just hand him a tissue.
