Testosterone and iq

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and iq


Avatar n tn from the beginning, we have included weekly, sometimes daily therapy, and in the last three years intensive in home therapy. here we are and my son still gets suspended from school on a weekly basis for stealing, cursing, yelling and cursing at other students, and being as disruptive as he can be. at home he is very slowly coming around and i really think this is just growing up and slowing down a bit.
Avatar n tn Even though he may have some areas of cognitive strength, his overall functioning is low, as measured by whatever test the psychologist gave him. With medication and educational intervention, IQ scores can and do improve. Have hope. Get a second opinion. Learn everything you can about your child's rights to a Free and Appropriate Public Education. Know that you're in for the long haul and that your child's functioning CAN improve with appropriate, intensive, and on-going support.

Avatar n tn His handwriting is very poor and his fine motor skills are very poor. The school did more testing this last school year and found that his IQ is 62. I know his sister (from another mother) has Asperger syndrome. Can this be something that is hereditary? I feel that there is more going on with my son than just ADHD and a low IQ.
Avatar n tn he learnt sucking (through straw) recently. all he does is jump and run here and there and explore things around him. he spins things. he walks like a drunken. mostly he is in pleasant mood only. we are going to start speech therapy and cognitive therapy from next week. with his iq of 27 can i hope for his improvement?
Avatar m tn The psychologist also told us that she does not think he has a learning disability and that the slow development is a result of the low IQ. This was very upsetting as both my wife and I did well in school and of course want our son to his best. He also has a special needs sister who is profoundly disabled and we are doing all we can to provide all the support we can including a tutor on weekend for one hour as well as private speech therapist twice a week.
Avatar n tn If the boy is raised in a superior stimulating environment, and has access to great education and parents who strive for excellence, the child should show a higher IQ on a test than a child of the same actual intelligence who has not had such a rich environment. So a child in a high achieving home should test at 115 or so, and a child in a home where he hasn't been exposed to stimulating education might test at 95, but both have the same intelligence.
Avatar n tn The mental clinical labels are common with people suffering hypothyroidism and many can also be labeled ADD or ADHD and given those medications - mistakenly when a hormone adjustment should be done.
Avatar m tn If a child scores high on such a test then there is no doubt that he is intelligent. If he scores poorly this can be for a number of reasons. The most obvious is mental retardation, but there are other factors. I am reminded of the old IQ test. In the 30's and 40's northerners scored an average of 110 and southerners 90. Since there was no intelligence difference between the two populations, then the test itself was deficient.
Avatar m tn But long term use of testosterone and other steroids have transient effects and there is no scientific evidence that performance is enhanced. There is abuse liability so I would suggest you to follow up with a physician or endocrinologist for case to case prescriptions. Take care!
Avatar f tn Suboxone not only effects sex drive it effects Testosterone levels. There is a lot of misunderstanding of this out there. Viagra and Cialis without sex drive equals an erection that allows for sex but no satisfaction to the male if there is no drive. Low testosterone causes low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
Avatar f tn Given the list of issues (attention, language, ASD and low motivation) my son has, has the school administered the right IQ test ? 2. Can IQ drop so significantly? 3. Are there alternate IQ tests for kids with ASD and ADHD? Also, Should I just take the IQ test results with a grain of salt and continue working with him as usual? My only worry is that his already low bar at school will be lowered even more.
Avatar f tn I'm 32yrs old and have mild CP (Right Spastic Hemiplegia and Paralysis). I have low testosterone, have had hormone therapy in various stages of life, have had cryptorchidism (undescended testicle) surgery, and have had micropenis fixed with testosterone. Here's my thoughts. Option 1: suppressants, First off, it won't make him happier to use suppressants. Trust me, I know what it is like to have low testosterone and it is pure hell. It makes life worse.
Avatar f tn My son has had his IQ tested every year (ages 3,4,5,6), it has always been 65. He was diagnosed with severe ADHD and we started him on medication. He has now been on the medication for a year and his IQ was retested (now 7 years old) and his IQ is now 100. I've always known he wasn't dumb, so I'm thrilled to see such a score, but is this normal for a young child to have such a large increase in their IQ score after starting ADHD medication?
Avatar n tn The doctor checked my testosterone level due to and adverse affect of opiates, and I didnot have any. He put me on supplemental testosterone, but I have read it would come back naturally and taking supplements will stop the natural production of my testosterone. Anyone had this issue.
Avatar f tn Even among those, the difference in IQ was not that significant and in some studies, the children born to hypothyroid mothers did catch up by a certain age. One study I read suggested that the lower IQ was actually linked with prematurity, since hypothyroid mothers were more likely to have premature deliveries. There are lots of conflicting studies on the matter and what you read on the internet will almost certainly scare you, like it scared me.

484508 tn?1290010544 In depression and hypomanic state there is a depressed mood, disinterest in activities and also low testosterone can occur. Depression can occur due to reduced level of testosterone in the body. So, supplementation with testosterone might help you. Side effects of testosterone therapy if done in excess can lead to neoplasm’s in the genital organs, gonads. Kindly consult an endocrinologist in this regard. Take care.
367100 tn?1330914725 A TSH of 5.9 is not very high and is not likely to be associated with low IQ. The study that looked at this showed TSH of 13 or greater to have the higher risk of low IQ caused by hypothyroidism in the mother. Target TSH is 0.3-2.0 during pregnancy.

1192722 tn?1264785547 If he does have ADHD/ADD, you need to make sure that his IQ was correctly scored to begin with. If he was not paying attention during the IQ test and/or the person administring the test does not understand ADD, the score could be low or not correct. In my opinion, if you can afford a private evaluation, it is always worth getting a second opinion by a child specialist that understands ADD and learning disabilities in children.
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.
