Testosterone and stroke

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and stroke


Avatar f tn To the best of my knowledge there is NO clinically proven "testosterone booster" that is of any use.They are all bogus and a waste of your money. He will need either the gel -- Testogel, Testim, Tostran etc or the injection Nebido. At the end of the day, to get a good erection he may need Alprostadil inter-penile injection. Good luck in your quest and don't give up.

Avatar m tn I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and my tests showed a tsh 7.32 my t4 was 1.1 free t3 7.2. The test also showed that my testosterone was very low and my pituitary was very high. My doctor referred me to an endo but they can't get me in for a couple of months, so the Dr. did more tests. I just got those results and am very confused. The testosterone is good, pituitary good and my Tsh is .64, T4=.8 and freet3=3.4. I still feel cruddy. These test were less than 2 weeks apart.
Avatar m tn The most pressing problem is pain and weakness in both hands. Sometimes they have numbness and tingling and sometimes tightness and pain.

Avatar m tn I read a Testosterone Brochure in my doctors office and it had listed all these symptoms. If I remember right I think that's what made me ask. My biggest concern is a lower bone density; Since my fibula was removed and cut in half then two holes were cut into my pelvic bone to use as bone grafting of the missing 10 cm of femur bone just above the knee. This "femur" bone is still filling in. So if I have a lower bone density this weakest part of my leg could break...

Avatar n tn My testosterone levels (total and free) and thyroid tests were normal. Vitmain D level was fine. MA autoimmune test was negative. Other than my historical low white blood count (3.4), all of my CBC and blood lipid tests were within the reference ranges.

Avatar f tn His cholesterol is low, his sugar is just a few points over the normal upper limit, and his testosterone level is 12 points above the upper recommended number for suggested testosterone supplement treatment. He found a lump in his right testicle at the end of June. Prior to that there was no problem in getting and maintaining an erection, however in the last year he has had a hard time getting to climax and ejaculation and often the quantity of the semen was low.
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.

I originally thought that everything here is linked to depression from stress and anxiety so I started taking Lexapro for the depression.

Avatar m tn I just wanted to see if low testosterone was still common. I failed to mention I am bipolar and been on many meds and also overweight. Just wanted to see if there were any males that deal with low testosterone. I already had planned on getting the test.
Avatar n tn 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. Have there been any traumatic occurrences lately in your life?
Avatar m tn With all the results you have, I hate to ask, but could you just post your TSH Free T3 and Free T4 and include the reference ranges provided for each? 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.
2054381 tn?1330458617 I started to research in early 2011 natural cures, I also had blood tests done, and cortisol saliva test to discover my levels were very high at 8am and very low the rest of the day, so I took a bunch of adrenal fatigue supplements. I discovered my testosterone was at 11.0 (equivalant to a 90 year old man) and should be at 30.0. I tried natural ways to increase testosterone which didnt work so I am now taking testosterone enanithate injections 1 ml of 250mg every 5th day. By dec.
