17698157 tn?1459229144 my age is 30 I got married in 2011 I have no sperm count means zero and very low testosterone level, some Dr said your FSH and Lh levels are very high as normal ranges in males..
Avatar m tn Could you list your lab ranges for testosterone and prolactin. In general, blood prolactin above 200 ng/ml almost always is diagnostic of a true prolactinoma. High prolacin lowers testosterone. And if your testosterone is also measured in ng/dL that is so low it's ridiculous! Research shows over 95% of euthyroid patients with no thyroid symptoms has a TSH under 2.5mU/L. TSH is of no value with conditions that do not affect the thyroid such as central hypothyroidism and cellular resistance.
Avatar m tn Low or high testosterone , if you had unprotected test and wanna be aware of your status you can test. A duo test 4 weeks after your last exposure will give you the answer you seek. If negative you can confirm it buy testing three months after your last exposure. Till then take care.
Avatar m tn Hi Raven, High testosterone can have the same effect as low testoterone, and gives all the problems your getting, just google high testosterone and its problems, its all there.
Avatar n tn The normal range of testosterone in males is 300 -1,000 ng/dL and in females it is 15 - 70 ng/dL.The normal ranges vary among laboratories. Few labs may use different measurements or test different specimens. It is best to talk to your doctor about the interpretation of test results. Write to me again with more queries. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar m tn Hi there, The common causes of hot flashes in males are andropause, thyroid disorders and aging hormones. As a man ages his body produces less testosterone and androgen which may cause hot flashes. Other causes of hot flashes are infections like HIV and tuberculosis. Use of medications like Nifedipine and Calcitonin and certain antibiotics are few other causes of hot flashes. Sometimes food containing monosodium glutamate can cause hot flashes.
Avatar m tn Hi, Your story is atypical of obese boys going through pubertal development, initial testosterone gets converted to estrogen in the fat tissues and as the testosterone level picks up normal manly features develop. So, as such I do not think you have any reason to worry. Try to reduce your fat, take balanced food and do moderate exercise and over a few years, the gynecomastia should get subsided of its own.
Avatar m tn Hi, Most males are concerened about the size of their penis. They all come in different shapes and sizes. At 3.75 erect you might be smaller than some but you certianly are not the smallest. I myself am a 45 y/o male who has about a 3.5" flacid and about 5.5" erect. Now that I have become older it seems that my penis has shrunk a bit. I believe that it is due to having gained some weight. You have not stated anything about your body build, whether you're slim or not.
Avatar n tn The normal testosterone levels in males vary between 260 -1080 ng/dl/ 8.8 - 36.7 nmol/l. Though these may slightly lower with age, the average values remain more or less the same. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn The injection is given deep intra-muscular and is quite often painful. The injection results in very high circulating concentrations of testosterone for several days after administration, with a progressive fall to normal or sub-normal concentrations over the succeeding 2-3 weeks. Due to excess and deficiency of testosterone in a fall and rise kind of pattern irreversible side-effects are very common. That is why they are usually not preferred.
Avatar n tn they require a Dr. referral. I thought about testosterone replacement but with estradiol so high I wonder if I could have an aromatase deficiency and increase my testerone would increase my estradiol. I read about aromatase inhibitors which may be the answer. I should say that I'm in my mid 30s, obviously male, and rather overweight. Could you please tell me how bad or how out of range my estradiol level is?
Avatar m tn I personally think the whole testosterone treatment is a scam. Nobody tested me for free and albumin bound testosterone, the biologically active forms. Total testosterone is useless. This is like measuring total cholesterol without the HDL and LDL fractions. The primary practice docs are totally clueless. I would recommend talking to a good endocrinologist only.
Avatar m tn the only abnormality that the doctors have found is I am in the 1% males with as high of testosterone levels as i have. The doctor was concerned because he thought i was taking steroids. Clearly not. no research has shown testosterone to cause reduced sex drive. which doesn't effect me, im hornier then no other. Im planning on going to san diego for their sexual medicine hospital and see dr. irwin goldstein. I was wondering if anyone has either met someone like this or has it themselves.
Avatar m tn Normal testosterone levels in males is 300 -1,000 ng/dL, results vary slightly in each laboratory. This suggests that your symptoms may be attributed to other issues such as sleep disorders or underlying medical conditions. It is best that you discuss the symptoms with your attending physician also for proper management. Additional diagnostic tests may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn For example genes that encode for proinflammatory T cell and Ig superfamily proteins is higher in males than females. Males have higher expression of heat protein shock genes, suggesting that cellular stress us elevated in males. Investigation of the unique cellular pathways and candidate genes that cause differential in bacterial infections between males and females continues, and may one day lead to a new class of antibiotics.
Avatar m tn High testosterone levels in women are often caused by PCOS (Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome). This is a benign condition which results in irregular or missed periods, excessive hair growth on the face and body and so on. Extremely high testosterone levels can also be caused by androgen-secreting tumors, located in adrenal glands. These are usually benign but in rare cases may also be malignant. Please keep us updated! Best of luck, E.B.
Avatar f tn Hey! My blood tests show that my testosterone is too high, though I don't know what is causing this. My doc wanted to say it is pcos but my estrogen levels are ok. And I'm very thin. Although I am breaking out from sugar and too much processed food, so maybe it has something to do with insulin intolerance? No one in my family has this problem. So what should I do, which doctor to turn to?
Avatar n tn It is the effect of hormones on the hair follicle that produces male pattern baldness. Testosterone, a hormone that is present in high levels in males after puberty, is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. DHT has an adverse affect on the hair follicles. Acting on a hormone receptor on the hair follicle it slows down hair production and produces weak, shorter hair, sometimes it stops hair growth from the follicle completely.
Avatar f tn I found out in 2019 I had low testosterone (0.6) and high SHBG (134), still same numbers as of June this year. Back in 2019, A doctor prescribed me AndrolGel. After a week or two into the treatment I had insane heart palpitations, high BP’s, dizzyness, sweating, headaches, the works pretty much. After a month or two of ER visits and doctors telling me it’s not the AndrolGel, I stopped it. Told me everyone has testosterone in their body speech. My dosage was 1 sachet of 2.5gm 1% twice a week.
Avatar m tn t know if their numbers for the normal healthy ranges are for males for any time in life, or what. Does anyone know ranges that are age-specific?
Avatar n tn Has anyone else experienced a low testosterone level after this tumor removal and if so what course of action did you have to take? I am 46 now and I understand testosterone levels do begin to drop a bi tin males once reaching the age of 40.
