Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and aging


147426 tn?1317269232 I finally ended up in frustration going to an anti aging doctor who put me on human chorionic gonadotropin s.c. daily and that brought up my testosterone to 350-400. In May of this year I finally found an endocrinologist who agreed to put me on testosterone cream. It has not been an easy three years! Thanks so much Quix for making sure I saw this post....Craig.
1002520 tn?1251582386 In my observation, women can discuss sexuality and sexual health issues much more openly than men (That might be why we are called MEN… not women or gays. DUH!)" So does that mean guys avoid the subject altogether? Not exactly. "Certainly men think about it, but women verbalize it." (But… do women want their men to become women? I’m sure they don’t… feminine problems mandate their acceptance to indignities when it comes to their health… men don’t, and haven’t… DUH!
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
477746 tn?1254788147 This may be the reason why men whom have rheumatoid arthritis may find substantial reductions in pain and inflammation after T administration (25). Aging and Pain Threshold Aging is associated with a host of aches, pains, and diseases that can make life miserable for us men. We all make fun of the old geezer in movies who is screaming about his prostate is the size of a watermelon. Well the joke is on us, every man if he lives long enough will eventually develop prostate cancer...
Avatar n tn Avid researcher into skin aging, and medical journalist. About six years ago, I noticed nasty little puckers and crepiness in the crook of my elbow. About six months ago, the skin under my underarm (on the inner side of my arm) started to look saggy. I have an antiaging blog and have used this to document everything logical to be done about this since many of my readers are experiencing the same.

Avatar m tn The 13 Most Powerful Superfoods Avocados They're high in fat, but avocados contain healthful monounsaturated fat, which has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. "Avocados aid in blood and tissue regeneration, stabilize blood sugar, and are excellent for heart disorders," says Ed Bauman, Ph.D., director of Bauman College. They're loaded with fiber (11 to 17 grams per fruit) and are a good source of lutein, an antioxidant linked to eye and skin health.
Avatar m tn Avoid saturated and trans fats, which might hasten brain aging. Moderate amounts of caffeine can improve your short-term learning and recall ability and temporarily improve your focus. But skip supplements of ginkgo biloba or ginseng. There's no good evidence to recommend either.
Avatar f tn I have dealt with that same problem for years and tried everything! All sorts of womens AND men's deo. and anti-persp.-never helped. Certain Dri-never helped. Shaving, or waxing, 2 times a day-never helped. I tryed the stay dry powder from which helped a tiny bit but still not good enough to where I could wear any shirts besides black ones. I read to take a cool shower in the morning-didn't help me. Gel deo. just made it worst. And finally I decided that maybe I should talk with a doctor.
Avatar n tn This is really illuminating to find so many others suffering almost identical symptoms. I am a 58 year old male pretty fit and in generally good health. My problem is the intense tearing pain I get in my right knee when I bend at a certain angle and at a certain time. I can't define either because it's so uncertain. I can do situps now with no problem. We all seem to refer to this pain as a tearing pain as it feels like a wound that has been stiched together is tearing apart.
3060903 tn?1398568723 [B]ecause vitamin D is a biomarker for bone health and aggressiveness of other diseases, all men should check their levels, [lead investigator Dr. Adam] Murphy said. 'All men should be replenishing their vitamin D to normal levels,' Murphy said. 'It's smart preventive health care.'" You can also improve your benefit from vitamin D by increasing your healthy levels through sensible sun exposure and not by swallowing it.

3149845 tn?1506631371 I have hired many health care aides (on the books), and have found many from Ukraine and Georgia with advanced degrees available for service.
16335396 tn?1461337296 I have poured all my time and energy into caring for our daughter as well as our other children, taking care of aging parents and working myself that I didn't have anything left for my husband. I was also resentful toward him. It is so much easier for me to take off work so most of the care and running to dr appointments fell on me. He also played on a men's softball league so had an outlet.
Avatar n tn If the person is persistently doing something you don't agree with, or even don't prefer (like swimming instead of hiking) you are free to go. Unconditional love is between parents and children, or adults and invalids (like aging parents) who are incapable of recriprocal relationships. The rest of what you said I agree with.
Avatar f tn that laser sure was easy compare to needles and toxins and it last. Hmmmmm? Would I ??? For now, I'm with aging gracfully. I'm 50 and I am what I am, take it or leave it :) P.S. You notice no men on I know 2 that are talking lipo and eye lifts, lol. And their 'rough' guys!
Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
Avatar f tn All of them are benign. These women are very tired of this and some of them now suffer permanent pain or disfigurement from all the biopsies. They found a 5 mm microcalcification in my right breast and everything else is fine though I have cystic breasts. The thing is, I didn't USED to. I have only developed this since I turned 50. My breasts are different now which makes sense. I am going into menopause! This does not seem to matter to any of the doctors I have seen.
Avatar n tn It's because I am so upset and my emotional and physical health is deteriorating, I can't concentrate. Here is my true story: Last year at this time I was getting up almost every hour or so because of pain or cramping in my lower abdomen. About a week prior I had about 5 days of constipation which finally went away, but became more mildly chronic. It took my g.p. or pcp about two months to give me an order for a sonogram. It was found my bladder was not emptying fully.
Avatar n tn Couples both female and males can go through all sorts of physical illnesses that change the way they look through illnes,s aging, operations and life saving operations etc. Also, women can suffer prolapse and have difficulties with the ability to have sex and men can suffer issues with erectile issues for a number of reasons. If this alters the relationship it may be a good time to consider counselling to address the changes that life brings to our bodies as we get older.
Avatar n tn Over abusing any ONE of these things will have a dramatic effect on your sex life and overall health, and most people abuse ALL of these things. And people actually wonder why their sex life goes downhill as they get older. WAKE UP! You want to know a simple and SAD fact? 90% of men who buy this manual will read some of it, maybe try a technique or two, then stop and forget all about it.. This is purely laziness and lack of discipline.
408795 tn?1324939275 I don't think it's really between us - those who have had hep it's the 'real world' and they don't care for the most part. They won't care until they get it or a loved one of theirs gets it then they will see how ridiculous it is to throw stigma and blame and guilt on people without any question. Just like HIV was considered the "gay men's disease" people eventually did begin to realize that was no longer true and it had spread to the wives at home.......
Avatar n tn Your ovaries affect mental health later in life, and bone health. I can sense that you are resigned to having the surgery, but I sure wish you could delay it and explore some alternatives. NEITHER the patch or the pill or any other drug will ever, ever be able to replicate what your body does naturally. You will never be the same again. The surgery takes all of 20 minutes, and the effects last til the day you die. Did they tell you some of the things that can happen?
1199040 tn?1265239024 Fortunately for me, the corpsman who administered my shot in 1995 annotated the lot number and the manufacturer in my health record. Lo and behold, the lot number was one of over 280 lot numbers that were "urgently" withdrawn between 1994-1996 by the manufacturer for the possibility of contamination of Hepatitis C. The withdrawal included both intramuscular and intravenous products. Each lot contains about 17,000 vials.
Avatar n tn I'm now comfortable without the testosterone and simply plan on aging gracefully. I do not know any other men who are in the same boat I am so I can't compare notes with anyone. The information you ladies have presented has given me some insight to how other men perceive the situation.
Avatar n tn I was just saying the other day how horrible it would be. He was in perfect health, and worked out and everyhting, then BAM. Anyway, someone has to go to the doctor and find out what it is. I am 31 years old, very healthy. I work out with weights 4 days a week, and also just started doing yoga. It is also just turned cold here in Texas. I just started getting this feeling on my left foot a week ago. Its like a warm sensation that goes away after a second or so. No pain.
Avatar m tn In the case that this is due to some circulation problems amongst most of us, from my research I recommend you all to start taking Omega-3 fish oils and L'arginine ethyl ester (helps increase and improve blood flow) on a daily basis. Further look into Ginko Biloba, but I'm unsure about the effectiveness of this. Also wrap a hot towel around your penis once a day.
Avatar n tn And I don't wear contacts either. And the itching drives me crazy! My health insurance doen't cover dermatology :( so I'm trying to solve the mystery myself. Any help would be WONDERFUL!!!! Thanks in Advance!
Avatar m tn 25D of corneal astigmatism, so that doesn't impact lens choice,and he did a thorough exam and didn't see any other eye health problems (my optometrist hadn't been sure what accounted for a rapid reduction of visual acuity, and shift in prescription, over a few months, so the MD checked to be sure this was the only issue he saw).
Avatar n tn I had a radical proceedure, and I'm still wondering what that means. It will effect your hearts health, it will change your bone development, it will effect your hormone balance and may put you in early menopause. You can get doctors to tell you that after the fact. But, you need to ask a lot of questions in more than one place before you have your thyroid removed. What is your life like now? What do you want it to become.
