Avatar m tn Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is hormone that is naturally produced in our bodies and decreases after the age of 30. It serves as a pre-curser for the sex hormones, androgen and estrogen. There is evidence in support of the use of DHEA for help with adrenal insufficiency, depression, and lupus; however; there are no studies of long term effects. DHEA may increase the risk of prostate, breast, or any hormone sensitive cancers and it is recommended only to be taken under the supervision of a MD.
Avatar m tn Temporary hair removal can be achieved through depilation or epilation. Drugs like androgen receptor blockers, androgen suppressing agents and 5 alpha reductase inhibitors are also used. Permanent means of hair removal by electrolysis and laser treatment are also useful. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and discuss all the pros and cons of these methods so that the best treatment for you can be decided.
Avatar n tn Well, studies have shown more recently that the consumption of 2 servings of low fat dairy products a day negatively impact fertility. All breastmilk has hormones in it, naturally. The fat skimming process takes away the female hormones, progesterone and estrogen, while leaving behind androgen. This can cause a hormonal imbalance and impact ovulation since you are literally consuming extra male hormones.

Avatar f tn The test for sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) is primarily ordered in conjunction with other tests to evaluate the status of a person's androgen levels - the male hormones. With men, the issue of concern is testosterone deficiency, while with women the concern is excess testosterone production. So no problem indicated there. Not sure why the doctor ran the FSH test for you at age 73.
Avatar m tn Could I have an androgen secreting tumor since all estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid levels are within normal range? Or is there something else I am missing? I am scheduled for an appointment with GP in two weeks, but I cannot stop thinking that something more is going on.
Avatar f tn You can take Fenugreek or Mother's Milk tea and it helps increase your supply. Also, try to have the baby on the breast as much as possible. After the baby feeds, pump. Sometimes nothing will come out but you have to keep trying. My friend was on the pump once for 30 minutes before anything came out. Keep trying! Good luck!
1332551 tn?1275658929 Acne is caused by high androgen levels. Androgen levels are commonly raised during times of hormonal change including puberty and after delivery of a baby. Face washes alone will not heal acne. Your doctor can prescribe a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily and a topical retinoid cream called Differin (adapalene). Female acne patients may also benefit from taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like Yasmin or Diane35.

Avatar n tn Female acne patients can take an anti-androgen medicine called Spironolactone and/or an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Diane35 or Yasmin/Yaz. Severe acne which does not respond to conventional treatments may warrant Oral Isotretinoin. Unfortunately, you will have to avoid direct exposure to UV light (sun/sunbed) whilst using any of these medicines as severe sunburn or hyperpigmentation may occur. Best Wishes, Eloise.
Avatar n tn When you are over 35 the risk of complications from taking the pill increase. Other risk factors are smoking and being over-weight. Your doctor will decide if the risks of you taking the pill outweigh the benefits. Another useful medicine for this type of acne is the oral antibiotic Oxytetracycline. If you take this whilst on the pill, use a condom as there is a risk of contraceptive failure. My skin sounds similar to yours and i use Estee lauder cleanser for oily skin.
Avatar m tn The exact source of prostate cancer is still unclear and may even be in connection with genetic changes. Changes in genes including androgen receptor-related genes can result in an elevated probability of cancer of prostate; genetic changes could be linked to environmental factors for example diet. The more genetic changes, the harder the likelihood of prostate cancer. In a few cases, cancer of the prostate might be hereditary.
