Avatar f tn The gynecomastia leads to body disturbances for males especially at a young age. This can be causing a big part of the depression. Also talk to the health care provider about weight and see if this could have something to do about the low testosterone levels.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if you could offer any opinion on the matter, whether genetics play much of a role and whether it is possible of someone my age/gender to get breast cancer - also taking into account that cancers of this type are painless(?) and often show other symptoms (discharge etc).
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.
Avatar m tn Can anyone tell me what causes me to out of the blue once in a while, I get a hot feeling all over, and it is scary, like I think it is is a stroke, but a few minutes later, I am ok again, but scared that it was a bad sign that something is wrong. I asked my doc over the phone after describing the symptoms what it was, only to be told She did not know. Is there anyone here that have had this happen to them? How do I treat it if possible?
Avatar f tn ll see improvement in your symptoms if it is part of your problem. The first few days, symptoms might get worse before they get better, or they might not. Stick with the diet (if you'd like to try it) for 3 months to see if it helps you. Leave me a message if you have any questions. Hairloss is almost always (according to what I've read) a combination of hormonal imbalance and autoimmune disease.
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 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 n tn 36 Conventional blood labs, on the other hand, say aging men are alright with as little as 6.6 pg/mL of free testosterone in their blood—an absurdly low level! Mainstream medicine’s ignorance regarding the need to maintain free testosterone in the higher ranges is a significant cause of premature disability and death in aging men. (Note: Free testosterone is the biologically active form of this hormone measured in the blood.
Avatar m tn m going ahead and getting tested in a couple weeks. All this crap I see on the internet give a link to low testosterone which I do have. I am getting shots for treatment. I guess I wanna know if it can still be common for a guy under forty to have low testosterone. My doctor tells me the two are not linked but the Internet tells me they are. I admit I was with a few women that I failed to use protection and it was vaginal with no oral or anal.
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 f tn s and Hashimotos * Ferritin (and do stress FERRITIN, not just RBC) * Adrenals Cortisol levels (but we strongly recommend saliva tests) * B-12 * Estrogen * Progesterone * DHEA * Reverse T3 * CBC * Comprehensive Metabolic Panel * Lipid Profile * ACTH Stim test * Growth Hormone (24 hour urine test) * Neurotransmitter (24 hour urine test) If your there and the doctor is willing, an MRI with and without contrast of the pituitary gland may also be helpful.
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 m tn Bob, Your total T, FSH and LH numbers are all slightly below average for a 41 year old but the levels are OK. Your free T is on the low end and could be causing symptoms of low T. You may be able to improve your numbers with supplements or even by becoming more sexually active. Stay away from hormone replacement therapy. http://www.livestrong.
Avatar f tn Erectile dysfunction is not as uncommon as people think in young men with 26 % of men under the age of 4o reporting it. We encourage you to speak to your doctor about it. While masturbation can possibly impact this, there are other underlying causes you would need to rule out. So, being able to talk to your doctor is important. With the high number of males who have the issue, they will not be terribly surprised and will hopefully have suggestions for you.
4326355 tn?1354357341 The levels in men are most often checked to evaluate signs of low testosterone such as seen in conditions like impotence, low level of sexual interest, infertility, or thinning of the bones. Medical history an the symptoms present are important considerations also. It is best that you talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results. Take care and best regards.
Avatar f tn Breast cancer in males is uncommon, especially in the young, but it can occur. A lump under the nipple of a young boy is most likely gynecomastia, which is common in boys around the age of puberty and is usually temporary.
Avatar n tn I have most of the classic symptoms with Low Testosterone: Low libido, fat in mid-section, fatigue, grumpy, low stamina, medium/weak erections etc., Went to my Urologist. After blood work, he said I was fine and prescribed nothing. I'm thinking he's crazy. Can someone review my readings and give me an unofficial recommendation? I'm thinking I should've been recommended some sort of therapy, and if so, which therapy is good for my situation?

Avatar m tn I have Hashimoto's Disease/hypothyroidism and I initially thought my levels were really low. Results came back with a slightly high TSH, slightly high T4, and a low-normal T3. Right now I've been having weird symptoms for a week and a half. They acutely began after waking up one morning and before then I was perfect.
Avatar m tn It feels weird being in front of alot of other guys tacking showers an d i am standing in my shower being erect in fount of all the other guys. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/183432'>Embarrassing erections during physical exam?</a>.
Avatar n tn Hi, As can be seen from the following link, an young adult male can have a serum testosterone (T) level in the range of 300 to 950 nanogram per deciliter of blood. : http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83686 This range also slightly varies among different labs. The broad range is to cover a larger population base. It is is also expected that with age the T level reduces by about 1% per year after the age of 30 years.
Avatar m tn I took it for several months as my blood work showed low testosterone. There was no effect whatsoever on my fatigue, sex life or oven follow up test values. 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.
Avatar m tn They have said they would send me for a sperm test but thats just one of a whole list of possible symptoms, one that I think is directly related to low testosterone but according to them it has no bareing on sperm count... I also understand a guy in his 20s can expect an average testosterone level or around 21.38 nmol or 617 ng/dl while my very highest is a very long way off that score. any help would be much appreciated.
