Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone for women weight loss

I suggest u get ur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> checked. The #1 symptom is hair <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> in women and hair growth in other unexpected places. I have really high Testosterone I'm trying to lower, it has been making me lose a lot of hair and I'm only 29. I have high Testosterone from PCOS. MAKE SURE UR DOCS LOOK INTO THAT. I started intense cardio, eating foods with little carbs and low sugar, and drinking spearmint tea. Also thinking about colon hydrotherapy.
I have been steadily packing on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a few years now and cannot loose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the life of me. my tsh,t3,t4 always come back in normal range. Since iam no longer on birth controll i have elevated Testosterone levels. I have done excersize programs and yes its good and all but it's not painless to cary around 220 lbs! The doctors all they say is loose Weight and that pcos while linked to obesity is not the cause. I do not beleive that at all.
I have had pcos <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about six years or should I say I have been diagnosed for that long. I just had my first child this past year with no drug help other than metformin. It sounds as if we had similar situations. I weighed about the same as you and then just went up thiry pounds in no time at all. I think the metformin helped. It regulated my periods, and WeightLoss was a little easier, but it is not a magic bullet. You have to adjust your diet some also. It is worth looking into though.
That would make sense because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> promotes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> and muscle gain, but as a women, isn't it a dumb idea to do that? it's like steroids, and I dont want to get a deep voice, hair, and lose my chest? Am I crazy about this or can someone explain. Because I know Testosterone isn't good for us women too much.
I am on 500 mg and it has done nothing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span>. It actually constipated me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the first few days and gave me heartburn and chest pain. I don't know if that is normal or not. My doctor says I am insulin resistant and he thinks this will help me Loss Weight. Should I ask to increase it? Or is it to soon?
Hi, Although I've been avidly researching obesity, fat Loss, etc. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years and have heard of HCG <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span>/fat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span>, last week was the first time that I researched it in detail, and what I've researched, including responses from medical professional (i.e. Dr. Simeons), as well as feedback on several message boards, is nothing short of amazing.
But I am motivated and hCG SlimXpress, Tacoma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> program with the rapid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> benefit using hCG injections is exactly what I need: rapid Weight Loss for motivation, and seeing a slimmer me will help re-program my old eating habits. Come back every day and I will keep you posted, Jenny.
Anyway, for the excess hair (as well as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> hair <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span>) spironolactone is the only treatment really, so at least you'll know how to handle that from now on:). I honestly experience a lot of hairLoss when I'm not on it - and on the pill. In the begining I was put on Androcur (Ciproterone Acetate) -- I'm not sure you can find it in USA-- but this really has severe side effects, like Weight gain, plus it is very poweful and really hurts your liver.
Larger studies are now underway. Women - Yes, we have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span>, too, but in much lower levels. Studies have shown that women with MS have significantly lower Testosterone levels than women without MS. No, speical info here - just a factoid. (Interesting to me, because when I was evaluated 15 years ago for decreased sex drive my Testosterone was neglible - way too low for my age. Hmmm.
I changed many Endo at last , the current endo asked me to do more test, which are hormone test, results are below Dec 08 Total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> =235 (241-827) Free <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> = 59 (52-99) LH 3.5 (1.5-9.3) FSH 1.6 (1.2-18.1) Prolactin 24 TSH 1.27 (.6-3.5) FT4 1.37 (0.6-1.8) My Endo wanted to MRI to make sure there is no prolactinoma, in MRI it came back with 6mm adenoma . She thinks my Testosterone level is low because of high prolactin although it is not significantly high.
Bioidentical hormone pellets (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> men, both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> and estrogen avail. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> women) injected under the skin produce steady, continuous release of hormone. Usually lasts 3-6 months depending on person. Again, limited doc's available, but might be helpful for some of you. Good luck.
This is a physical response that must also be addressed and Dr. Simeon's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> cure protocol also addresses this issue. Using the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> Cure Protocol, all of these issues are addressed and handled easily. You can expect to lose an average of one pound per day without feeling hungry. You will lose fat from the problem areas like your hips, thighs, and buttocks without having to exercise. You will see your body transformed and reshaped as if you had undergone liposuction.
who are scared to drink water as it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> gain' and bloating...the more water you drink..the less you retain...*with in common sense that is..and most people no where drink enough water... why & where did you get 'diuretics' from ?? dont even bring it up(THOSE WHO DONT KNOW BETTER)..they are deadly..if taken wrong ...bad ,bad ,bad..
So the other women on this forum don't think I am totally crazy to not have a TAHBSO, I want to add a little about what I have learned about these types of tumors. I am not in the medical profession, so please don't take my word for this. All through this experience, I have done extensive research (expecially pre surgery). Searching such key words as "Testosterone, ovarian tumor, women" on pub med and looking through medical books, etc.
Would you happen to know how many calories you're eating every day? It is true that it's difficult <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> women to build muscle mass and get bulky, and is just about impossible if you're consuming limited calories and are creating a defecit. Regular resistence or strength straining will build a little muscle, but it shouldnt be bulking you up. If you think you're bulking up that much, theres a good chance you're consuming too many calories.
To All, I have been googling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> negative information on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> therapy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years with very poor results, but now in just the last few months a lot of the negative side-effects are getting attention and it seems the FDA is going to re-evaluate Testosterone in the same way they did with the women's estrogen replacement therapy. They may have to study it for several years before making any changes. Hopefully our doctors won't have to take so long to change their ways.
Support structures for an abundance of diseases and syndromes are the norm, specialists within health fields help us narrow down our choices <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> treatment. Unfortunately <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> women with pelvic organ prolapse, symptoms that create a scenario of embarrassment as well as discomfort lend themselves to a hidden world of suffering that often goes on for years while this health condition progresses, impacting women from every angle, physical, social, sexual, emotional, and financial.
I was diagnosed with PCOS 10 years ago. I started taking Metformin and experienced a dramatic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span>. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> did not diminish the excess hair. I had ingrown hair and blemishes all over my face and neck. I had painful inlammed pimples. I finally took the pluge and had laser hair removal on my face and neck. Everyone should know that laser hair removal is not really permanent and that if you stop the treatment the hair will grow back (in my case anyway).
It would certainly make sense that we would need Testosterone since post-menopausal ovaries produce much more androgens (Testosterone and androstenedione) than estrogen. These androgens actually reach pre-menopausal levels in intact women in their 70's. These androgens are then converted into estrogen, as needed by the body. It would be great if exogenous Testosterone worked the same way but I do not think it works quite like our innate body / endocrine system.
I have lifted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years and have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> mass. The more I researched about the possibility of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> and HCV treatment meds, I knew it would be the kind of Weight Loss I did not want if it happened to me. So far, I am not responding to the meds as well (virologically) as I would like- but I still have the sides. As we all know - a lot of sides will happen no matter what. Try a Google search on amino acid Glutamine (L-Glutamine).
It has been a life change <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me. I have lost about 10 pounds, but my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> stabilized, no more dryness and my back pain has gotten so much better. The Biodentical Hormones have changed my life, helped my relationship and I have absolutely no bad side affects only good ones. It took about a year to get it adjusted but it is working great now. I wish I knew all this 16 years ago. I would have done things differently. Now I can finally concentrate on the Weight Loss.
What luck! I'm so glad you got to see him sooner. I see gimel filled you in on which test your should ask for. In answer to your question, "Also, I am a bit confused as to why you think my hair will grow back if I am put on a HIGHER dose..." In my opinion, hair Loss is a symptom of being hypo, not a side effect for the meds.
ty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> answering dp...I have noticed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about a year now that so many of the women who get hysterectomys also have hypothyrodism ,,its far to many to just be a coincidence. Just has me wondering.
It is comforting to read that I'm not the only 45 year old women who has gained <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> no apparent reason. I have gained 15 pounds in the last year, I go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week, I eat approx. 1300 - 1400 calories a day and I don't drink. I can only imagine if I really porked out and was drunk all the time.....well maybe I would feel better - ha! I'm just frustrated because I don't know what to do anymore. My dr.
I to date have gained 10 pounds, truly I eat whatever I want and exercise very little, the Weight gain seemes to be more from bloating from the hormones, some women don't gain any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span>. If the surgery is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> health reasons don't worry about the Weight. It is nice not to be bothered every mouth, also I have not lost my sex drive.
Now I'm beginning to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Loss</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Weight</span>. I've been off the drug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 4 months but I now have panic attacks like I'm going to go nuts if I don't get some Effexor. I've heard lots of good about Wellbutrin so I'm taking it now. Wellbutrin's side effect is Weight Loss not gain from what I've read and heard. It's not helping me much yet but I'm on the lowest dose and I'm going to try a higher dose.
Symptoms are extremely high IGE levels, high cortisol levels, inflammation in the lymphnodes throughout the immune system (seen on thermography scan) which result in painful bodily aches, extremely low thyroid, adrenal gland fatigue, anxiety, nausea for months, 20 lb. Weight Loss in a few months and still dropping..
its a must read <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> ALL women - as a matter of fact men should even read it because of how he explains all hormones -Testosterone etc. I had low progersterone with normal level estrogen. That makes me 'estrogen dominant' even tho my estrogen is normal. I sent for the saliva test cause that shows what is in the tissues. I often think about that in relation to hep c. I had read a study where hep c shows up in saliva only if the VL is a million or over.
Oh, I'm well aware that most won't and haven't even bothered to run the necessary tests. I have to come in with my research, notes, and articles for them to educate themselves, and they point blank refuse it all.
