905118 tn?1299318889 Is it possible to have low testosterone levels at 24 years of age? I'm experiencing decreased libido (my girlfriend and I are only having sex 2-3 times per month and it's becoming very frustrating for her.) I've also had weight problems when I was younger, which i overcame with great determination over the course of the last two years (lost about 30kg of weight - 66 pounds) and I'm now generally fit, and go to the gym 4-5 days a week.
Avatar m tn Yes, you are absolutely right. Chronic opiate use does lower your testosterone level and thus your sexual drive. You may be over the acute stages of withdrawals, but the residual listlessness, depression and insomnia can last for several months. Some of it is cause by diminished hormones, but it will resolve eventually with time, good nutrition, moderated exercise, being in fresh air, etc... Do not despair, it will get better and better every day. Good luck.

Avatar m tn It will start such as this, first the girls don’t notice you, then, once you begin turning grey, and start obtaining a little rough throughout the edges, they search right the way through you. Once you lose testosterone you've less stamina, endurance, and a smaller power to endure workouts. Not only this, you should also worker harder than previously to get results from your workouts. Giving one's body the testosterone its been lacking, you are opening up the opportunity of one's body again.

941206 tn?1245277895 As far as training goes, I wanted to be bulky and muscular for most of my life and trained with good technique and proper nutrition for a long time but hit a plateau soon in my life and I've always been weaker physically than everybody else no matter how hard I tried.

Avatar n tn Hi Ladies – Long time! Sorry about that! Here are responses to your questions. This is a long one but I hope I’ve answered all your questions. And I promise to log in here more often!  Desperado: Congradulations on the conception but terribly sorry to hear about the miscarriage. Hang in there babe – you’ll get a babe yet.

Avatar m tn Hi, The first thing you need to do is diet control, reduce the quantity while keeping the quality of food you take. Google for Dietary Reference Intake and you will get references like these: http://www.iom.edu/Activities/Nutrition/SummaryDRIs/~/media/Files/Activity%20Files/Nutrition/DRIs/1_%20EARs.pdf These are the daily required macro nutrients for your body and ensure that on the average you get these levels of nutrients daily from your food ; nothing more., nothing less.
Avatar f tn 0 or thereabouts and great free t4 free t3 levels and all else looks good so maybe they raise your thyroid med dose thinking you're still a little hypo (not hyper) or have you lower dose in case you are actually hyper and for a short while you feel better or feel worse right away so now you don't know if you're up or down ?
Avatar m tn Base on research when Free T3 is low it can affect Cholesterol (well when thyroid is underactive) and then Both thyroid and Cholesterol affect my free testosterone which is low now. He just gave me medicine for the cholesterol. I went to another doctor and this one tells me he only considers HYPO someone with TSH higher than 10. Completely different than all information online and books. He said my cholesterol is high but HDL ratio to triglycerides was good.
Avatar f tn I have just recently heard of a saliva test from Canary Club, which tests the full spectrum of cortisol, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, TSH, free T3, and free T4.

HealthcheckUSA also another lab can get the saliva test, HealthcheckUSA.
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.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar m tn You were giving updated reports on your viral load and alt ast numbers. Its been awhile and just curious as to where you stand now.
Avatar n tn and prescribed Met 500 mg. No changes and we had the holidays. I went to diabetes and nutrition counseling (as well as changing my lifestyle with eating and exercise) and they all said they think I have POCS syndrome and so did the GYN. They all suggested that I increase my dose to 1000mg so the Doc did. I have lost 3 lbs in 2 days since and blood glucose levels are done so I am hopeful.
