Avatar m tn It seems that I can kill two birds with one stone by taking androgens, such as testosterone or DHT. I have another appointment which my endocrinologist in about a week so I will try to get my testosterone prescription renewed, but I wanted to check in here because the research I've done so far is hardly relevant to my problems and the answers remain cloudy. I am also looking into getting hGH, IGF-1, or IGF-1 lr3, because of the known effects of these on skull/bone growth.
Avatar m tn if my levels are good, should my libido be as well? And should I start worrying about something else instead.. If I had learned that there was only 0,000001% chance for me to permanently loose my libido when taking this, I would of course NEVER have touched it! Is this a renown great pharmaseutical scam that everyone should know about?..
Avatar n tn In other words, sky950, testosterone is present in your system because you are human being, and present in a noticeable amount because you are a male. It could be true to say that you masturbate because of testosterone. Also, the guys who lose their hair do so because of testosterone, but masturbation doesn't cause hair loss, and it doesn't cause testosterone to increase either.
Avatar m tn I got my dr to check everything else last time and to me my dht and dhea are very low as well as my testosterone, but my testosterone was a little higher before I started the injections. thinking about stopping them all together and going to try to get him to pursue one of the other possibilities. heres my results. I threw everything that I had checked in the only thing that gets me is the dhea and dht. and before I started the injections my t levels were around 360.

Avatar f tn I am 15 years old and desperately need some help/insight. I currently masturbate once a day and have this paranoia that my hair is getting thinner. Would that amount masturbation cause my hair to thin out? I have also read all the stuff on DHT and am curious if it's true, so is it? Or am I just worrying over nothing?
Avatar f tn Total Testosterone will give a measure of both attached and free testosterone. And Free Testosterone is more specific and only measures free testosterone. Total T is the typical first test to get for diagnostic purposes. It's probably always the first test in hypogonadism. And normal range is usually (most labs) 300 to 800. About 1 to 2% (in most men) is free testosterone. The rest is attached. Free testosterone floats around and is biologically active.

Avatar n tn How are you? The most common complaints when using saw palmetto include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, bad breath, constipation, and diarrhea. Stomach upset caused by saw palmetto may be reduced by taking it with food.

Avatar m tn Hi, Dutasteride or Avodart prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia. This medicine helps improve urinary flow and may also reduce your need for prostate surgery later on. However, it is recommended that you take this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor.

Avatar f tn [1] As DHT is a far more potent androgen than testosterone alone, virilization in those lacking DHT may be absent or reduced compared to males with functional 5-alpha reductase.

Avatar n tn I have been told that fenugreek is very useful in balancing the free testosterones that convert to DHT and cause hair fall. What I would like to know is whether I can eat the fenugreek seeds directly, say with tea or something. Does it cause any digestive or other health issues if eaten directly? Though I know fenugreek is often used as an ingredient in plenty of dishes, the seeds get cooked so I was wondering if it is alright to have them raw?
Avatar f tn There is testimonials everywhere on the net about it. It blocks the conversion of dht and can inturn lower testosterone levels. if u read up on propecia, the hair loss treatment.
Avatar m tn According to my research contrary to medical opinion, your penis can shrink in size as your body stops or limits the amount of dht produced, this is what is responsible for penis growth, I have also found the reduced blood flow can also reduce size. This Can be caused by anemia, alcohol and smoking. You can have your testosterone tested and make sure levels are ok. If not the good doctor should be able to prescribe some topical dht.
Avatar m tn You need to test estradiol (preferably the sensitive assay one) (too low or too high will give you erectile dysfunction), dht, and shbg. Also test thyroid (t3, t4, ft3, ft4, tsh, reverse t3) and adrenals (cortisol 24 hour saliva, pregnenolone, dhea or dhea-s), sugar and fasting sugar. vitamin d too low. Your problem is hormonal. after bloodwork, post your results in one of erectile dysfunction forums. many guys will help you.
Avatar m tn Green tea (Camellia sinesis) - it is thought that catechins found in green tea may inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase that converts testosterone into hair-unfriendly DHT. It is therefore believed to be effective in preventing and treating male pattern type baldness. You should drink several cups of green tea each day or take it in capsule form as instructed by the manufacture --------------------------- [url="http://www.allhairlosstreatments.com/"]http://www.
Avatar m tn Natural testosterone cream reduced my blood sugar, triglyceride and cholesterol levels to a normal range. My depression lifted and my enegry levels increased. When testosterone is converted to DHT and estrogen it can be problematic. But there are safe and effective way to prevent that from happening. I'm not considering testosterone treatment for my baby but I know that an imbalance of hormones can effect the body in many ways, not just sexuality.
Avatar m tn Masturbation in men causes loss of Testosterone and and also adds stress which converts the testosterone in blood to Di Hydro Testosterone (DHT) by a process called 5-alpha reductase. This has been found to be the major factor contributing to hair loss in 95% of the people suffering from Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). The other factors may include low quantity or a deficiency of vitamins, minerals, etc. that are required for hair growth and other functions to preserve healthy hair.
