After having lost my left testicle due to complications of a vasectomy and having had numerous infections of the urinary tract, kidneys and testicles I have had problems with low testosterone levels. I lost the testicle a year after the vasectomy due to a staph infection and nearly died. I have problems with vision as well and had to give up driving in 2003. I have Rod/Cone dystrophy and have only 15 degrees of central vision.
Uh - low level of what? Of LH and FSH? Flushing - looking red and low testosterone...hmmm look up Cushing's syndrome. Elevated cortisol suppresses testosterones, makes you red, suppresses thyroid and other hormones like thyroid too... you may not have all the classic symptoms now and so this doc may not know what to do but the hidden ones should be enough for a neuro-endo. Do you have any pituitary centers?
and have also been having lower back and leg pain along with pitting edema. My heart, kidneys,and liver have all been ruled out. I do have extreme tenderness in my lower abdomen. They did run labs on me and my testosterone levels came back doubled, I have also had a pelvic US, I have not received the results back from that yet, although the nurse did say my ovaries looked larger than they should.
I am not sure what is the cause of this. A few weeks ago i got tested by a doctor and he said everything was perfect and my testosterone was normal. All that came back was that I was slightly Anemic and He said I needed to drink more water because I had a slight issue with one of my kidneys. The anemic thing threw me off because I workout almost everyday and 172lbs. Though I do remember hearing about being anemic when i was about 17.
Also the causes of low testosterone can be primary, secondary or tertiary and all the causes need to be ruled out. Your husband may need a series of investigations like urine examination, urine culture, ultrasound or cystoscopy to confirm the diagnosis. Please consult a urologist and get it done. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

During the day, I have little need to urinate, at night during certain nights several times to urinate, should the liquid taken during the day be discharged in a few hours and not accumulated till sleep ? I am 68, and male recent tests show everything normal. Does HGH in level 1, 0.2 mg/day pose much stress to kidneys ? How about with 0.01 mg small amounts tetosterone occasionally as well. Does Ambien affect kidneys at 5 mg levels ? Thank you.
i was born with what is, in a nutshell one and half kidneys. my left kidney is measuring approx 5 cm and is located left iliac fossa whereas my right kidney is a normal size and is loacted where it should be. im a 21 year old male and i workout 5 times a week which includes weightlifting and kickboxing so i am on a pretty high protein diet. I have never had any troubles with my kidneys, i was on soya milk as a infant but apart from that ive never had to take medication or anything.
My brother has very low testosterone level and testicular atrophy since 2009. He visited many doctors,he got exemined in different ways, but they do not know the reason. He gets testosterone injection (NEBIDO) in every 6 weeks, but not effective.His body does not want to react to the injection and his testicles are shrinking very fast.Where can we go to find the proper treatmant, cause he is in deep depression.
Anabolic steroids and the heart... Testosterone effects receptors in your kidneys which make your body produce more blood. More blood causes a rise in blood pressure, thus making your heart work harder all the time. Many people end up on beta-blockers to control blood pressure as a result. Also, cardiac muscle is not immune to the effects of steroids and can reportedly "bulk up" with long-time use of exogenous testosterone in excess of what your body would produce.
He also said the varicocele probably developped itself when the testicles descent into the scrotum and get caught in arterias around the kidneys. If the varicocele developped recently, it will probably have nothing to do with this. Another thing my urologist mentioned is that the hydrocele has little effect other than being in the way. Ofcause I can't compare our situations, but I hope my experience helps you a bit.
Alternatively, you could have a problem with your adrenal glands, and they could be over producing testosterone. I am going to assume that if your MRI showed anything abnormal, they would have called you, but I would also encourage you to call them for results! Its important to know all the information! Depending upon what your risk for blood clots is, you might be able to use depo-Provera to suppress the ovaries and the testosterone.
Hormones generally work in concert. Testosterone and estrogen therefore would be affected by these spikes and dips in hormones, thus contributing to acne. Acne is generally considered an inflammatory disorder (depending on type, of course) and whatever you eat is a good place to find the cause. Also, caffeine is a diuretic, meaning you will get more dehydrated the more your drink it.
I went to the doctor and then all of this started. I am a 25 year old male 280lbs and I used to smoke cigarettes and marijuana. I started having erection problems about 4 years ago.

I take viagra sometimes.
fatty acid + O2 = fatty acid hydro peroxide it is an anti-flammatory agent and work predominantly within the liver and kidneys; and endocrine system; note well; only in a very very low concentration 0.03 percent or it would damage the liver and endocrine system; most strains of harmful bacteria (and cancer cells) are anaerobic and cannot survive in the presence of oxygen or H202.

Assess levels of the thyroid hormones TSH and T4, as well as hemoglobin and the hormone testosterone, and take appropriate steps as needed (such as prescribing thyroid or testosterone supplements). If hormone and other measurements are within normal ranges, the research team suggests that doctors consider the temporary use of stimulants such as methylphenidate (Ritalin) 10 mg twice daily. Because Ritalin is “chemically related” to amphetamine, some doctors may not wish to prescribe it.
1. First 5 years and 9 months - Combivir and Stocrin. Last 3 months switched to Atripla. 2. No meds for this as it's only slightly enlarged 3. Cytacon (B12) tablets - Bloodlevels show a OK result now. No pills for B6 as should be retested by hospital. 4. First time a 7 day tablets treatment and now Nystan 4x1ml/day for 7 days. 5. No meds for this. 6. 28 days of Omeprazole 20mg (then wait to see if the pain comes back to take further actions). 7.

Cholesterol is now 311 Triglycerides 69 and HDL Cholesterol 71 and LDL 226. My doctor wants to put me on statins, but I want to get my hormones correct first. What do you think? What kind of doctor should i follow up with?
I am going back to the Endo in a few weeks time to see how I am doing on the Dessmopressin and see if any other symptoms are present and see what the next steps are. I have been feeling unwell for nearly a year now, with bad fatigue, nausea, dizziness, insomnia etc. I have recently started to put on weight, aching joints, tearful, always cold etc. Has anyone experienced these symptoms from these causes? How common is it to have both a Rathke’s Cyst and Microadenoma together?
Thank you for all your help! Yes, next time I go to the doctor I'll request to have my FT3 checked and post it with the lab range here. I've often wondered about Cushing's Disease. Another symptom I'm having is facial hair growth. I have started to grow a white mustache and beard. It grows in so fast over night that I have to shave like a man every morning. I've spoke to the doctor about this and his reply was, "You are fat. Fat has lots of testosterone in it.
0 or thereabouts and great free t4 free t3 levels and all else looks good so maybe they raise your thyroid med dose thinking you're still a little hypo (not hyper) or have you lower dose in case you are actually hyper and for a short while you feel better or feel worse right away so now you don't know if you're up or down ?
The problem stems from the fact that there is a high stress level on the body which causes excess DHEA-S to be secreted from the adrenal glands (primarily due to an attempt to replace gonadal hormones like testosterone from the low Luteinizing hormone via High TSH) this causes maturation and overstimulation of the sweat glands and other things like male-pattern baldness, enlarging prostate, and thick facial hair (Hirsutism). This process is accelerated if you are overweight and/or a smoker.
Yeah, my sex drive was hurting too. I'm still trying to fully recover in that area. But, it is a lot better now. I don't have a problems with testosterone level though, I don't think.

I'm just so confused as to why I have felt worse ever since I started taking thyroid meds. I fit all the profiles for hypothalamus and pituitary disorders, and since they affect the kidneys, it explains why I'm always thirsty and have to pee 2-3 times an hour. I don't have diabetes either. This past month I started increasing my T3 thinking it would help my brain fog, but I"m feeling worse now and think I have screwed up my adrenals even more.
Complete anderogen blockade included Lupron which affects testosterone produced from the kidneys and Casodex which blocks androgens produceds by the adrenal glands. Radiation therapy is helpful in some cases where prostate cancer has spread to the bone and causes pain.
