Testosterone and age

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and age


Avatar n tn I would describe myself in much the same way, med test. Similar age, height/weight, and description of how I've felt for almost a year. My urologist tested my testosterone only, which he concluded was normal, and said he expected my situation to improve. Well, it has not, and it is causing me major stress. I first began having problems about a year ago soon after a breakup. Since then, I have not felt right. My level of sexuality plummeted, and I simply don't know what to do.
Avatar m tn I recently found out that my total testosterone level is 460 ng/dl (standard range is 220 to 1000 ng/dl), testosterone free is 2.3 percent (standard range is 0.5 to 3.2 percent), and testosterone free is 107.2 pg/ml (standard range is 40 to 240 pg/ml). Also, my FSH is 1.8 mU/mL (standard range is 1 to 10). My doctor seems to not think these results are a problem. Do these results seem normal? Thank you for your help. Additional information: My iron levels were abnormally high.

Avatar n tn The size is determined by the testosterone receptors which don’t change in number after puberty and thus taking any testosterone boosters is not going to affect the size of the penis. I sincerely hope I am able to address your query & hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn I made an appointment with a Urologist a couple weeks ago because I have been having issues with maintaining an erection and one of the things that the doctor did was take some blood to check my testosterone levels. I am involved in a committed relationship and it has taken a tole on both of us for months. Back in 2007 I took testosterone (Steroids) for about 6-8 weeks. My testosterone level came back as 287 which is low for a man of any age.
Avatar m tn Ranges vary fron lab to lab, that is why they are needed to see how you are with your thyroid, as far as Testosterone is concerned, it normally does not affect the thyroid levels. If you are up in age they would be low, testosterone hormone is available through your MD, although a risk of Prostate Cancer comes with it, so your md would have to monitor the prostate frequently.
Avatar f tn I have a 21 yr male who has low testosterone levels and high estrogen levels. He has gynecomastitis, overweight, depressed, and insomnia. Any advice on treatment option!
Avatar m tn my age is 30,my pennis is not getting erect and i am unable to do sex. please help me out.should i consult to Dr.
Avatar n tn Naturally it implies that at any age there will be an acceptable range for the T level and there can not be a fixed value for a given age. Also it means that if a person had a T level of of 900 at his youthful age, and at sixty years if his T level drops to 400 he could develop symptoms of low T even though he is within the normal range. At the same time, a person who had a T level of 500 when young, could be symptom free at 400 level and 60 sixty years of age.
694895 tn?1263662430 The result was 80...At my age, it should be close to 350. It is possible that low T is responsible for the severity and long duration of this episode. The Rx prescribed is Androgel...but at $250 an Rx I am unable to have it filled...I have no insurance and not enough money to start the treatment...anyone else have their Test level checked as part of a depression profile ? If so, what therapy were you prescribed.

Avatar n tn My wife had me go to a natural hormone doctor who ran blood work and said that my testosterone level was at 370 and I should be around 900 according to my age, my vitamin D level was very low and my estrogen was high, so I am on testosterone shots once a week, high once a week dose of vitamin D and Armidex for my estrogen level. I am taking 10 mgs of Lexapro but I don't feel a thing and have no idea if it is even helping but am afraid to quit.
Avatar n tn Has anyone else experienced a low testosterone level after this tumor removal and if so what course of action did you have to take? I am 46 now and I understand testosterone levels do begin to drop a bi tin males once reaching the age of 40.
Avatar m tn Do you guys have any explanation for the weight loss and reduction in testosterone levels? The loss in testosterone and weight is very large given the time span. What are some suggestions? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
502070 tn?1210204494 Although it’s normal for testosterone levels to drop as men age, low testosterone can cause loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, mood problems, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. If even after treating varicocele symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a urologist and get your testosterone levels estimated. 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 know that my testosterone is low for my age. I plan on losing excess weight and see what happens from there. I know losing weight will lower my estradiol and raise my testosterone, but how much of a difference will it make? I would be willing to try TRT but I am scared of infertility.
Avatar m tn Hi Birth, At 46 there are to things that can incress your testosterone, DHEA is one,and its a hormone, but please read up about it first as it can have the odd funy side effect with the odd person, ok and two is Tribulus, and its a herb, now both of these run along the same lines by boosting your testosterone, lifting your libido and kicking up your energy levels, now I take both because I had ED and now in recovery.
950277 tn?1247274551 Are you interpreting that correctly? I had a T test, and i am a weight lfter with 12% body fat and late 50's male. I bench press 275 for reps. My T level was 580, and the range quoted was 0 to 900 or 1000 with 400 to 600 the mid range, I was informed by a Dr I am above average with my age. If you are lower than 100 or 200, I think you should get some advice about options. A general rule is the higher the fat in a man the lower the T level. You husky types are in trouble.
Avatar m tn Hi guys, been experiencing this low testosterone. I can't sleep and low sexual desires. I'm afraid that my partner will eventually dislike me. I went to the doctor and he gave me a prescription but still no effect. Is there any clinic you know that can help me?
Avatar n tn Testosterone injections are great for anyone who wants to do it the rest of their lives and is above the age of 25 or so. Here's the scoop. MOST IMPORTANT it will cause early epiphyseal bone closure. This means he will wonder how tall he could have been the rest of this life. It doesn't take much testosterone to cause this, you cannot get around this.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor My son who is 9 years old slightly overweight but very muscular started getting pubic hair growth at the age of 7 - 8. He has a normal penis size and testicles for his age and his sweat doesn't smell and he doesn't have acnea. His bone age however shows an age of 12-13 years. He is taking Lexamil 5mg daily (1 year now) and Vesicare 5mg daily (6months) for depression and poor bladder control respectively.He is very fit and does a lot of sport.
Avatar f tn Though the reference level of testo varies some what from lab to lab, here is a link from Mayo Clinic giving their standard levels up to adult age. If you are within the range limits specified there for your age then, you may need not have to worry, if not better to consult an Endocrinologist. Also, when you say penis growth, there is a large possible variation and individual perception can differ. So if you have any doubts, better to consult a urologist.
Avatar m tn I am far from and expert. However everything I read tells me the answer to your question is yes. Low testosterone levels can cause depression at any age. However depression in senior citizens can have many other contributing factors not associated with testosterone levels. Loss of career, a mate, loss of friends, decline in health, loneliness and many other age related issues can cause depression.
Avatar n tn I have read the advantages and disadvantages of neutering and the disadvantages at his age seem to far outweight the advantages. I'm seeing increased risk of things like hypothyroidism, urethral incontinence, and some places even say prostate cancer by being neutered. I'm wondering if I'm trading one problem for a worse one. I found this product on the net called Prospet that supposedly can help to shrink the prostate. I was going to try that route instead of the neutering.
