Avatar m tn Can anyone tell me what causes me to out of the blue once in a while, I get a hot feeling all over, and it is scary, like I think it is is a stroke, but a few minutes later, I am ok again, but scared that it was a bad sign that something is wrong. I asked my doc over the phone after describing the symptoms what it was, only to be told She did not know. Is there anyone here that have had this happen to them? How do I treat it if possible?
948349 tn?1294383837 It turns out that DHT is the most potent androgen of all. In addition to that, more testosterone has to be produced to replenish what has been lost. Stress hormones can also cause increases in sebum production. This is why excessive caffeine, alcohol, smoking, energy drinks can cause acne to get worse. Also huge spikes in blood sugar cause surges in insulin levels and then there is a drop followed by a spike in cortisol, do this is another reason why diet plays a role in acne. 3.
Avatar n tn It is caused by a sensitivity to the effects of androgens (male hormones found in male and female bodies). High androgen levels also cause irregular periods and hair loss. Ask your doctor for an anti-androgen medication called Spironolactone and an anti-androgen contraceptive pill called Diane35 or Dianette. Best wishes, Eloise.
Avatar n tn Thanks Laur!! And that's great about your period!!! I plan to have my period this week one way or another!!! Once i get blood results back, which i'm almost possitive will be negative for pregnancy, I'm filling my prescription and taking those pills to bring down my period. I can't take it anymore ;p Thanks for the advice though. I will def look up that Amenoreah thing.
Avatar f tn Everyone in my family thinks I am seeing things because these items are everywhere. In my carper, burrowed into food and harder substances. I just don't understand why I see these items (that sometimes look similar to very small worms jellyfish or geometric shapes such as circles, triangles and lines) and others don't. I wonder if I am hallucinating but, I have taken photos of the sores and red lines, circles etc. that appear on my skin, on various surfaces, carpet, other fabric, etc.
Avatar f tn You may be a candidate for oral isotretinoin (Accutane in the USA, Roaccutane in UK). Whilst sex in itself doesn't affect acne, hormones play a big part. If you are female (sorry if you're not i can't find your profile) taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like Dianette or Yasmin will be beneficial.
Avatar f tn I am writing for a loved one who is incarcerated in a federal prison. The medical help available there is minimal and he is suffering from small itchy bumps all over his body. They are generally about 1mm in size. They itch, but are not a painful itch, as with scabies or shingles. When popped, there is white stuff that comes out, then clear liquid. Sometimes they scab. Sometimes the same bump will ooze white again. They are not clustered, and to not appear to be due to heat or reactions to food.
Avatar f tn I've been diagnosed Bipolar 2 and SSRI's can make a person manic or hypomanic, which is what ended up putting me in hospital. PMDD is actually a mood disorder, I was totally shocked at hearing that. Sure you can add evening primrose oil and omega-3/6/9 basically all the essential fatty acids as compliment to drug therapy, but I really wouldn't suggest as a stand alone treatment, especially since in the US non pharmaceuticals are not regulated.
Avatar n tn Take an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like Dianette (Diane35 in the USA) which provides birth control and clears acne and facial hair. Or take the combined pill Yasmin which is not based on testosterone.
Avatar n tn an anti-androgen called Spironolactone. If your skin is reacting to a certain food this is an allergy, not acne. Best Wishes, Eloise.
Avatar n tn Differin is the most effective topical treatment especially when used in conjunction with oral antibiotics like erythromycin or an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like Yasmin or Diane35. If your skin is sensitive but prone to acne i recommend the facial wash and mositurizer by Lutsine Hydrafnia, especially made for acne-prone skin which is dry or damaged by acne treatments.Do not squeeze your spots this will spread the bacteria and could cause scarring.
Avatar m tn I'm in early 20's..(female).. I have been suffering from severe chin acne for the past 10 months..mostly focussed on the right side... Is this due to hormone disorder/imbalance?... I have consulted my dermetalogist ... then i was advised to take hormone tests... Also, my endocrine assesment is over .. I'm waiting on my results... Can any one you help me on what it is acually? How i should follow my treatment ?... Is this curable if it is hormone related? Pls advise me.Pls..
Avatar n tn Stop drinking and smoking tobacco, make sure you're getting proper nutrition from real food with limited ingredients, cut down on dairy, try to get some exercise, and have sex every 1-2 days, especially when you're ovulating. After sex, try to lay with your hips elevated for 20 minutes. Also, make sure your partner isn't smoking tobacco or marijuana. Both of those are known to decrease the quality of sperm. Most importantly, don't stress about it. Good luck!
Avatar m tn There are two androgen-responsive elements in the HBV enhancer I, which contribute to higher viral titers in men. We investigated whether and how estrogen signaling interacts affects progression of HBV infection. METHODS: Ovariectomy and estrogen supplementation were used to evaluate the effect of estrogen on HBV titers in transgenic mice with replicating HBV in hepatocytes.
Avatar f tn A main underlying problem with PCOS is a hormonal imbalance. In women with PCOS, the ovaries make more androgens than normal. Androgens are male hormones that females also make. High levels of these hormones affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation. Researchers also think insulin may be linked to PCOS. Insulin is a hormone that controls the change of sugar, starches, and other food into energy for the body to use or store.

Avatar n tn Should these stray hairs and weight loss issues make me worry about the possibilities of PCOS? Can weight liftlifting affect androgen production in females? And no, I have never ever taken steriods or any other thing like that and never want to. By the way, I've cut back a lot on weighlifting and am focusing more on just cardio and endurance type activities. On top of this all, I am very scared by an unusual mass right inside my vagina.
Avatar n tn I am very small (about 90 lbs) and this seems like a pretty high dose, just based on what I've read. As Accutane-worthy acne goes, mine isn't very severe (cystic, but just in a few spots). I'm a little worried about side effects at this dose and am wondering if I should ask to start at a lower dose. Thanks for any suggestions/advice.
Avatar n tn Gynecomastia-this is more than likely benign proliferation of the breast tissue, in a young peripubertal male the basic mechanisms of gynecomastia include a decrease in androgen (male hormone)production, an increase in estrogen (female hormone)production We look for evidence of hyperprolactinemia (elevated prolactin from the brain) from possible microadenoma or central precocious puberty, excessive estrogen production from estrogen producing tumor such as germ cell tumors of the testes which w
Avatar n tn I'm 17, I have irregular periods and have gone nearly a year without one in the past, I went to the doctor and he did a smeer test about a year ago and nothing showed up. I've also never had a sex drive and was unsure if this is related? I am a virgin, healthy weight and eat a healthy diet.
Avatar n tn I had serious sedation, nausea and dizziness, One of the best things women near or post menopause can do to lessen menopause related discomfort and conditions is to lose weight. Estrogen, progesterone, and androgen are produced in body fat.
Avatar n tn I try to eat veggies, and stay away from all the food that may cause acne, perhaps it can be other stuff, many people have told me that this is due to no sexual intercourse, and the other reason is due to the fact that ive neve rhad chicken pox, so all the bad things int he body havent come out.
Avatar f tn I also MAY have reflux disease, though I don't get heartburn, and I do/ did have polycystic ovaries though not the PCOS disease itself- I am of normal weight, no androgen problems. I'm getting another gastroscopy and a coloscopy in a few days time, after that I don't know what else to do. Is it possible that my gastritis, which I have not gotten treated properly, is causing this horrible, almost constant nausea? Or am I just anxious and stressed (i don't feel that anxious).
Avatar m tn 0% PectaSol-C, to determine their impact on prostate cancer in the lab. The investigators used both androgen-dependent and androgen-independent human prostate cancer cell lines, two similar prostate cancer cell lines from mice, and a noncancerous human benign prostate hyperplasia cell line in their analyses.
Avatar m tn If you want to maximize your T production, fat loss, and muscle gain, then cut down on your drinking. Bisphenol A, a chemical used in food cans and plastic containers, may lower your testosterone by exposing you to chemicals that mimic estrogen in your body. Steer clear of foods in containers with the recycling numbers 3, 6, or 7. If you want to lose 20 pounds of fat, build major muscle, and boost your testosterone You should aim for 1 gram of protein daily per pound of body weight.
2026160 tn?1328928087 These are some things you can do to help control your acne. Get enough rest and reduce your stress. Stress stimulates the adrenal gland and in the acne-prone individual, the adrenal gland promotes oil production which leads to clogged pores. Stay away from foods, vitamin supplements and sports drinks/bars containing iodides.
Avatar m tn Roaccutane works differently. It is taken for 16-24 weeks and this, in 80% of cases, results in a long term remission from acne. It works by shrinking the sebaceous glands so they cannot produce excess oil and cause acne. The glands return to their previous size very slowly so the patient is free from acne indefinately. I have taken Roaccutane twice if you would like to talk about it (20% of patients require a second or third course).
Avatar m tn An endocrinologist can do an official diagnosis of PCOS. Unlike a gyno who just looks for evidence of cysts to make the diagnosis an endocrinologist will do blood work to diagnose. They can also rule out other possible conditions. A lot of times for PCOS a medication called spironolactone is prescribed. Spironolactone is officially a diuretic but for PCOS it is prescribed for hair growth. It works by blocking the testosterone, androgen.
