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 what hormone? If it's one you need and are low on then yes. Many HCV patients have low pituitary function, and growth hormone can help with fatigue there, because normal levels will return the body to normal rates of repair. Same with other hormones, but you need tests to determine what you are low on. If you are referencing female hormones, estrogen has been shown to decrease the rate at which fibrosis occurs, and does help females with fatigue as it allows for better rest.
1139187 tn?1355706647 I have Very high SHGB and very low testosterone. My dr said much of my testosterone is bound and can not be used. High SHGB is probably from long term use of birth control pills. I am switching birth control pills to the lowest estrogen kind to see if it helps. I may quit taking them at the end of the year. I'm not sure how SHGB and testosterone effect my thyroid, but wonder if birth control pills have been an issue in balancing out my thyroid.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am a 21 year old man and I suspect that I have low testosterone in my body. There are many reasone that forced me to come to such conclusion. Some of these characteristics are my high pitched voice, my submissive/passive personality, my kiddish looks, and overall personality. I come of as weak and low self esteem individual who can be easily influenced by others and be easily controlled by the male dominant society.
Avatar f tn Levels in the high normal ranges could be too high for you or levels in the low normal ranges could be too low. If you have the exact levels and reference ranges, we'd be happy to take a look at them.
Avatar n tn He has a large amount of facial hair so I am not sure what is going on whether it be a low testosterone level or what? He is concerned and has come to me and his dad, as I am also an RN. He is not on any medications and does work out as well. What would you suggest? What do you think some of the possibilities are that is causing this?
Avatar m tn Sometimes adding progesterone or correcting adrenal issues can improve low testosterone symptoms. However, in some cases it may be necessary to supplement with testosterone.
Avatar n tn It's about 90 days I think, that the male dog would still be able to sire pups after neutering. I think it is something to do with residual sperm (though how they live that long is, to me, a mystery) I know a male dog who was neutered about 5 years ago. He is still capable of mating fully, though of course he would not now be fertile. But he can certainly do it! So it seems there is still some testosterone in his system, even though he's 'firing blanks'!
Avatar f tn What are the causes of high testosterone level without any effect on the body ???? the problem in testosterone receptor or in what ??
Avatar n tn It is pretty common in Mediterranean cultures for females to have more hair than females of other cultures. On some days, I can deal with the fact that I have Hirsutism, on other days, I feel really depressed and alone. A few weeks ago I gathered the courage to go to my PCP and tell him about my condition. He automatically sent me to the lab for blood work. He said the tests would be extensive. Yesterday I went to his office and he reviewed the results carefully. Luckily, I do not have PCOS.
Avatar n tn Hello, The typical male testosterone level is between 250ng/dl to 850 ng/dl. The primary treatment for low testosterone is testosterone supplement. Testosterone replacement therapy may be in the form of skin gel, injections, long acting pellets, patches or oral inserts. Clomid is not the primary treatment mode for testosterone deficiency. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn I've never heard of nlovadex. i'm learning as we go. We dont know why his testosterone is low. The DR said it's still in normal ranges but it's on the lower side of normal. I think the main reason his sperm count is low is because he has a varicocele.Our DR I guess is just trying different things with us. I'll let you know next month if the clomid works or not.
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 The testosterone values were extremely low (5.9 nmol/L) but all the other ones were normal. By the way, I had a very delayed puberty - started at 18! Also,a CT scan of my pituitary was performed. The results indicated that I have a simetric but abnormally small pituitary gland. Not sure what that means but, currently I'm only being treated as primary hypogonadism with Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Avatar m tn Hi, I just got my exams an endocrinologist sent me, in them I have low testosterone I have 1.2 when the minimum is 2.7 if I am not mistaken, the thing is I guess now I will be patient a hormone replacement therapy for increase my testosterone and let me know what to expect, experiences or something that can help me with this new experience , thanks.
Avatar m tn In any case, I would advise you to consult an endocrinologist, because low libido and increased fatigue can be associated not only with low testosterone production, but also with disorders in the thyroid gland. Take tests for thyroid hormones and perform an ultrasound exam.
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 n tn 47-244 pg/mL. Is it lower than this? Some common low testosterone symptoms are decrease in sex drive, ejaculation problems, shrinking testicle, fatigue, loss of body hair, difficulty gaining or maintaining muscle, depression, and loss of strength. With testosterone replacement therapy there will be improvement in all these parameters with time. Only this therapy helps in case of low hormone. The cause has to be found out and treated.
Avatar n tn I think he is very comfortable with a low sex drive and the minimal amout of sex. I am sure the low testosterone level and the working alot of hours doesn't help matters, but I think he was like this the WHOLE time you. He might have put more effort into having the amount of sex that you wanted WHILE you all were dating and even that DIP over time. Secondly, you KNEW this was an issue BEFORE you married the man too.
Avatar m tn Sorry for the delay responding to your comment. Although low testosterone is not as common in younger males, it does happen. If you get a doctor that will not run a blood test, I am not sure what recourse you have in the UK. If all else fails, you can try buying DHEA over the counter at a vitamin or health food store (time released if possible). DHEA is a precursor to testosterone and can help raise your levels.
610665 tn?1237848048 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.
Avatar m tn My boyfriend is a Tc survivor and your question is definitely a valid one as we know all too well what living with low testosterone can entail. Ive mentioned this website to others even though its a testicular cancer site there is a section in the forums on this issue which may be of some help to you. www.tccancer.com. My other suggestion is to find a good endocrinologist there are tests that your PCP probably didn't run that an endo could check for you. Hope things get better soon.
