Avatar n tn Problems such as chronic illness (mumps in childhood which damaged testis), aging (not in your case), starvation, head injury, surgeries in testicular area, cancers, infections, and alcoholism are also among the causes of low testosterone levels. Please consult an endocrine specialist and an urologist. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor ie PC nad go for proper referrals. Hope this helps.
610665 tn?1237851648 I am concerned about my brother who has been diagnosed with Low testosterone and to cut a long story short I was hoping I could get some help with this and understand this as I am very concerned and worried for him... He is taking steroids and I worry that this is not good for him??? and what this will do in the long run... He has gotten himself into trouble with the law and I believe this is due to his mental state. I feel that I am not able to help in anyway due to not really understanding.
1214757 tn?1266366415 if you feel you should. Im not sure what your exact issue may be, but low testosterone is very common at your age.I tested in the 200's in my late 30's but according to the Dr., that was in the normal range...normal for an 80 year probably. But they dont care, so i saw someone who did. That being said, you apparently have a lot of other medical issues going on that could causing the low T, butit could just be low T, high estrogen, and that can be controlled somewhat.
1214757 tn?1266366415 Out of the years of blood work I got from being 13-22 no one ever caught my low testosterone level. I had physicals each year I had bloodwork every year. It wasn't until I talked to my PCP and explained to him that at sometimes in my life I don't feel like I can have sex which wasn't and isn't normal for a healthy 22 year old. I went to an endo doc and he said my Testorone levels were so low its not good.
Avatar m tn But he did not tell me any thing more. Could this low level of testosterone be causing my headaches? What usually causes a low testosterone level? How concerned should I be? I am only 21, and I was involved in several blasts while deployed in Afghanistan last year. They say that I received a moderate TBI from one of the blasts. Other symptoms are depression, lack of energy, trouble sleeping, and a irregular heart beat. I don't know if any of them are related.
Avatar n tn I am prescribed to take 200mg of Testosterone Cypionate twice a month. (1cc) 2. I was diagnosed with low testosterone in 2009 which is why I am on TRT. My T levels were around 150. So on the low end for sure. 3. My blood work initially looked something like this - Triglycerides 722, HDL 50, LDL 330 give or take (Might have those reversed but it's bad). Immediately after starting the injections my numbers dropped almost over night.
Avatar m tn I have recently been considering seeing a urologist to discuss testosterone replacement therapy after several months spent researching the vast effects of low testosterone. I got mine tested and it was 482nL, which I know falls in the "normal" range, but this was also after several days of working out in the gym, which may have boosted my testosterone slightly. I was also diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar n tn Male - 29 Years Single, Indian origin, Vegetarian, No drinking/smoking. Staying alone from plast 7 years. Not taking proper & timely food. In depression due to many personal problems.

But when shown to endocrinonologiest they said as only fat. As pe Endo. Mammary gland / gynecomastia lump should be of round shape ONLY.
Avatar m tn Going on to therapy could be only a band aid. You need to rule out other causes of your low testosterone before going on therapy. I heard for the gel it is about 350 a month. If you decide not to listen to me I heard that the injections are cheaper and more effective. Going onto therapy eliminates your bodies natural production of testosterone and it might not fully return if you decide to come off of it.
Avatar n tn And also estrogen is the common hormone in boys and girls that is required for growth, in boys, it is produced by conversion of testosterone, so, I would expect it to be low in boys during growth period. If you have any contra information, please let me know. You could as well check this with your endo?. For various stages of puberty, you may refer the following link: http://en.wikipedia.
1139187 tn?1355710247 I am a 44 year old male who has literally suffered the last 2 years with very low thyroid and testosterone. My testosterone level is 215 , 230 and the highest it has been was 245. I never thought that my symptoms of absolute fatigue could be from low t. I also have no sex drive despite being mentally. Engaged in thinking about it like a normal guy. My ears ring as well. I had some androgel prescribed to me about 5 months ago and just started taking it about 5 days ago.
Avatar m tn In my case my testosterone was normal yet I had low libido. A low libido can be related to several non testosterone causes, including depression (whih you mention), other medication, anxiety issues, erectile dysfunction etc. If I were you I would (in the following order): 1. Follow rumpled's advice, she knows a heck of a lot regarding AI 2. Find a neuro-endocrinologist 3.
Avatar n tn low sex drive, lack of morning erections, less intensity during ejaculation, less hard erections, irritability, etc.. I had my doctor run blood tests and everything came back normal. Testosterone was 257 on a scale of 241 - 800. Doctor says this is normal and will not consider hormone treatments. The only medication I take is a statin, which has lowered my cholestorol to normal levels. I am not overweight, nor do I feel depressed.
Avatar m tn The problem with this thing is that I don't know what the root cause of my problems is. I mean.. Hypothyroidism causes low testosterone, high estrogen causes low testosterone, high cortisol causes high TSH and low testosterone, hypothyroidism causes a lack of dopamine etc. etc. I'm really confused about all of this, especially because my doctor doesn't seem to know what to do either.

Avatar f tn Apart from that, it can be due to medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or thyroid conditions, poor circulation, low testosterone, depression, spinal and neurologic causes. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a urologist and get it evaluated. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Hello, Loss of libido in men can be due to psychological conditions like performance anxiety, medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or thyroid conditions, poor circulation, low testosterone, depression, spinal and neurologic causes. Normal levels of testosterone fall between 250 and 800 nanograms of testosterone per deciliter of blood. So your testosterone levels fall in the normal range.
Avatar m tn Dry hair, dry scalp, constipation, feeling depressed etc can be signs of low thyroid function. Low testosterone is another possibility. Other causes could be anemia and diabetes. Apart from this adolescents of your age need a drive or motivation in life. You must hae a goal (professional, personal, social etc) and work towards it. Join an activity class that can de-stress you (yoga, music, dance, gym etc). Simple walking, cycling, swimming too helps.

1563571 tn?1295125039 More recent reports have shown that genistein, the so-called anti-cancer compound found in soy foods, causes fragmentation of DNA in rats eating both low- and high-dose soy diets. Fragmented DNA can lead to cancer and worsening of neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, no studies have been done to address soy’s effects on depression and suicide risk.
