Men's health and low testosterone

Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and low testosterone


Avatar m tn I have been very healthy and exercise regularly. I had my testosterone levels checked and the results are unclear to me. The results were: Testosterone was 3.0 on a range 1.7-6.3 ng/ml) SHBG was 37 on a range of 13-90 nmol/L Free Testosterone was 56 on a range of 30-140 pg/mL Are these levels on the lower end or normal?. I would like to be on a prescription to be at the upper level for my age.
Avatar m tn He has a very strong sex drive and gets erections with Viagra or Levitra. Elevating your testosterone to normal levels improves cholesterol, heart and bone health--so I am told. I suggest you discuss it with your doctor. If you are concerned about a low sex drive or erectile dysfunction it will also help that. I wish you well.
Avatar n tn He has no other limiting physical conditions or health problems. He is a farmer and, particularly in the summer, he puts in long hours. I don't think he's particularly under a lot of stress. We love each other very much and have a very good relationship so this is frustrating for us both. Is there anything that can be done?
Avatar n tn I am 56. Recent testosterone count 483. Count too high for testosterone therapy. My sex drive was very low, "just didn't care" and no night time erections. I avoided having sex with my wife. Soft erections that I and my wife worked hard and had good sex. A cousin suggested Maca root. I have been taking raw powdered Maca root for 30 days. Its has done wonders.
Avatar f tn DH had his bloodwork done the other day and he has low testosterone still. Haven't gotten the results of the sperm analysis yet, but I assume it's going to be low. What are the options to treat this since testosterone replacement would most likely make him temporarily sterile. Been ttc for almost a year and we keep having this issue.
Avatar m tn does the HCV alone lower testosterone? as you know i have not treated yet and my testosterone level is low, slightly above the lowest normal. the level has continued to drop since i first had it checked 2 yrs ago. i'm sure next test it will be below normal. add this to the other metabolic syndrom things and i'm screwed! sometimes i feel what is the use of treating the HCV because i have so many other negative factors.
Avatar m tn It hasn't grown at all since I was born. It's been the same way since then! He said I have very low testosterone and you probably were low when you were younger also. He said my level was something like 3.30. (from a scale of 1.00-84.00) I noticed I'm different than others for example my voice is very high (I sound like someone in puberty) and I feel my body hasn't developed (muscles). This sounds very bad to me and I wish I went to the doctor when I was younger.
Avatar n tn I am 29 years old,male,and my height is 1.82. My problem is that i have low testosterone levels and would like some help on this matter because i am very confused. At the age of 9-10 i had my first night ejaculation which i think it the correct time if not a bit early.From the age of 14,i lost interest in sex,although i was still in fond of women i did not have any desire in having sex.
147426 tn?1317269232 A recent study has shown that men with MS have low-normal or low testosterone levels compared to men without MS. It is also noted that men have an older average age of onset of MS (in general) and at about the time when testosterone levels begin to drop naturally. A study at UCLA is just finishing looking at this looked at 10 men with RRMS who were not on Disease Modifying Drugs.
689860 tn?1238721632 What seems to work best to raise your hormone levels to where they need to be are WEEKLY injections of between .5 and 1 cc of testosterone. Be sure your doctor monitors your levels monthly including your estradiol (estrogen) levels. When your proper testosterone levels are achieved, continue to monitor your estradiol levels monthly for up to 6 months. If they rise too high, a drug that is normally used for females with breast cancer called Arimidex will take care of the problem.
Avatar m tn I can only comment on one matter and that is that testosterone levels and libido are not related. Your testosterone level may be normal, or in your case high, while your libido is low. 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.
Avatar n tn He told me I should stop the injections and allow my body to start producing testosterone on its own again. He said this could take several months and that my levels will likely fall to zero for several months until my own production kicks back in. I'm worried about what will happen to me during the time that I have no testosterone. How long should it take before I start producing my own? Will I start producing it again for sure?
Avatar n tn My interest is in this connection between trauma (your motorcycle accident/operations and my fall off the cliff) and our bodies' low testosterone production. Please keep me informed of anything more you find out about that connection between trauma and low testosterone. Also, have you been taking a narcotic to treat your pain from the accident and operations?
Avatar n tn It all started when he was dx with low testosterone and is prescribed injections 200mg 1 time per week that my father in law gives him a shot. He started taking shots about 4 years ago. It has been a downward spiral since. He is not the same person I once knew we have been married for 14 years. His mood swings are awful. He loses his temper easily and it is almost like a rage. He expects sex 5 or 6 times a week and gets angry and moody if he doesn't get what he wants.
Avatar m tn She has had low thyroid for a LONG time, yet her Progesterone was OK and so too for the most part her estrogen seems OK. It only seems like Testosterone is a chronic problem. I also wonder about how DHEA pays into this. As DHEA is a pre-cursor and used to build up the sex hormones. She has never been tested for DHEA and I suppose it is possible that if she is low in DHEA that may explain the inability to create testosterone and other sex hormones.
Avatar m tn Have you had your testosterone levels checked? Vitamin d deficiency and low testosterone go hand in hand. If you are vitamin d deficient there is a good chance you have low testosterone and this would explain why you have lost the zazz down there.
Avatar m tn One other feed back, we are all intelligent folks here and it isn't men's view verses woman's. It's just opinions. And believe it or not, we have other men who post here besides just you. You are very welcome to the forum and we are glad to have you but this isn't a sewing circle or something archaic like that. Okay, so I do wish you luck. Marriage is work-------- and that is for sure. By the way, marriage therapy an option???

Avatar n tn Yeah, my sex drive was hurting too. I'm still trying to fully recover in that area. But, it is a lot better now. I don't have a problems with testosterone level though, I don't think.
477746 tn?1254788147 Gender Differences in Pain Threshold Men have higher testosterone (T) levels and decreased incidence of depression and mood disorders compared to women. Until the development of other anti-depressant therapies as SSRI's, T was used to treat depression up until 1940 (1). Additionally, in experimental studies, women present lower pain threshold and tolerance and evaluate equivalent stimulus as being more painful than men (2). Men's brains respond differently to pain than women.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!

599170 tn?1300977493 Progesterone ( if to high) - does not stay as progesterone. If the body is receiving enough and has extra it spills off into testosterone. A big sign of that happening is acne. 15 years I spent - relying on my insurance to dictate what "I needed" to get better and nothing worked. After learning more about what my body was going through and finding a real doctor that knew about hormones and my conditions, I have been unable to utilize my insurance for my care.
Avatar m tn Hello , i am 20 year old male and my endocrinologist decided to test me for adrenal fatigue, because previously i had my testosterone tested and it turned out very low but my LH and FSH were normal.

Avatar m tn see personal description) Also I am a newly-wed and I have a very low sex drive, (She is sad and thinks that she is not attractive.) I'm tired all the time and depressed. (That could be caused by the pain too) Anyway, What are normal injection levels for most men of my weight? If it is caused by the methadone meds, and I can't lower that, what else can I do? Is there a natural herb or food I could eat to help?
Avatar n tn I did have saliva tests for sex hormones about a year ago-it showed very high dhea- like an older person, low progesterone, low testosterone, etc. I'm definitely not producing enough gh. I don't really have much muscle on my body anymore. My little one will accidentally hit my neck and it hurts!! There is no muscle-just loose skin- I'm getting a crepey neck. It makes sense since gh is produced during deep sleep and Ive lacked that totally for two years. Thank you so much for your suggestions.
632093 tn?1230349566 We tried Viagra, and that only partially helped for about 15 minutes. So, we went to this Men's Sexual Health Clinic that advertised 100% effectiveness or your money back. They did an ultrasound and said that his blood flow was fine and set him up with these injections that he administers directly into the side of his penis. The dosages are adjustable as needed, for effectiveness. This has been an improvement but still not getting full erection.
3060903 tn?1398568723 You may also want to do a saliva panel to check your hormone levels. Low testosterone and/or excessive estrogen may be factors that need to be corrected. For low testosterone, you could start out with herbal supplements, high intensity exercise and/or intermittent fasting rather than jumping right into testosterone replacement therapy. Also remember to check your vitamin D.
Avatar n tn And again today i felt the cramps coming on again, and again drank 2 glasses and low and behold it stopped it from progressing from anything worse than really bad cramp pains for about 1 hour.
