Testosterone depression

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone depression


919239 tn?1269394658 Keep in mind, if your testosterone is below 300 (total) you are going to have symptoms of depression, this is in part because of the general nature of depression symptoms. Low testosterone is a health condition that needs to be dealt with and to often doctors throw anti-depression meds as a first line of defense. I was offered anti-depression meds from my primary, who knows very little about testosterone levels, as most do.

Avatar n tn Hypothyroidism can cause depression and in men it can cause low testosterone levels which also can cause depression. Hypothyroidism can also cause B 12, Calcium and Vit. D deficiencies. So the answer to your question the chicken came first. It is important that you keep taking your replacement testosterone as it can cause issues of it's own. I'm not sure about the estrogen relationship. If your taking your meds and still feeling depressed maybe you need a adjustment in your meds.
Avatar m tn Be aware, the standard lab ranges they use for testosterone are _not_ age adjusted. And most doctors dismiss low testosterone out of hand, Come back and post your testosterone levels with ranges when you get them.
Avatar m tn After trying at least 7 different anti-depressants over the last 7+ yrs that did not help, I had my testosterone level checked. I found that my testosterone level was low, but in the "normal" range. One thing about the testo ranges is that some people have almost 10 times as much, but all seem to be "normal" numbers. That just did not seem right to me, so I talked my MD into taking self injections of testosterone.

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.
Avatar n tn Like I have told others, after trying every anti-depressant you can name, with no help, I had my testosterone checked. My testo numbers were very low--I started testosterone replacement just a few weeks ago--now I am really starting to feel much better. It should be a few more weeks before my testo level gets to the normal range, but right now it is the very best thing I have done!
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 Your dad's depression was not caused by the testosterone or by the urologist. Even if you feel the urologist did something improper by giving your dad the shots he was taking, being mad at the urologist is displaced anger at the situation, and is not going to improve the medical situation for your father, which is the primary issue.
Avatar m tn ve been reading a lot about the connection between low testosterone, thyroid problems and depression. I have an appointment with my Internist next week followed by a Thyroid specialist the next week. Am I right to wait on the Lexapro? My brother in law takes it with great results but I just think it was a quick diagnosis. Would love to hear your thoughts. I feel awful. There hasn't been a day in the last three weeks I haven't cried in frustration.
Avatar m tn (I have suffered from treatment-resistant depression for about 25 years.) He offered me Androgel, which I accepted and still use. So, I just had a conversation over the phone with a new endocrinologist in my new town in order to establish an appointment. The first thing she said when I told her I suffer from secondary hypogonadism is, "Is this because of a pituitary tumor?
Avatar n tn It sounds like you either have anxiety, depression, or a hormone problem. I have low testosterone. I am in my 30s, and I have always had low testosterone. Happily, I am being treated with testosterone injections, and it changed my life in a good way. You need to get a primary care physician to refer you to an endocrinologist. Be very honest about your psychological issues (anxiety and/or depression).
Avatar m tn Most of your symptoms appear to be due to low testosterone. Some common low testosterone symptoms are decrease in sex drive, ejaculation problems, shrinking testicle, fatigue, loss of body hair, difficulty gaining or maintaining muscle, depression, and loss of strength. With therapy there will be improvement in all these parameters with time. The cause of low testosterone has to be found out and treated.
Avatar m tn Male in upper 30s. Struggling the past few months with depression, anxiety, insomnia and loss of libido. Some recent test results for your consideration. What could be causing the low FSH and LH? How can I raise these levels? Is there a relation between the low FSH+LH and the T? And should I undergo testosterone therapy? Thanks. Nov. 2016 FSH: 1.5 (Low) Reference range: 1.6 - 8.0 mIU/mL LH: 0.5 (Low) Reference range: 1.5 - 9.
Avatar m tn it was like traveling at 100 mph and coming to a complete standstill (not depressed then) all signs pointed to low testosterone levels, but my testosterone levels were actually on the high side as well as my free testosterone. other wise i am in perfect health. i did suffer from "depression" so 2 years ago my doc put me on wellbutrin and he said that it should increase my libido, but all has stayed the same.
Avatar f tn I have not been diagnosed with depression, however I feel as if I do suffer from the symptoms! I am scared to ask my family and friends for their help because I have always been a very outgoing individual but recently have found myself batteling my emotions. Its becoming too tiring and tedius to hide these things from my family but dont know how supportive they will actually be I just need some type of reassurance that things will be ok.
Avatar n tn I'd like to know what my blood test results may mean. I've taking diet pills (ephedrine/caffeine) for a few years. In last year my endurance has decline. About 8 months ago I started noticing Fatigue, memory problems, body aches and problems maintaining erections. I started taking pregnenolone and 7-keto DHEA thinking it would increase testosterone. I finally went to my doctor 2 1/2 months ago. He ordered blood tests.
Avatar n tn The Endo Doc even told me that giving me additional testosterone would not solve my problem because my free testosterone levels and related tests are in normal ranges. They both said I am pretty much out of luck with my problem. I have tried viagra, levitra, etc.. but do not like the side effects they have on me. I do not believe a healthy 25 year old male should have these problems and I know my wife is starting to blame herself for it. Do the Doctors opinions make sense?
Avatar n tn I'm a 28 year old male. I have been tested on multiple occasions for low testosterone. My results come back low, but still within limits at 300-400. The problem is, I don't have much of a sex drive. I've always had trouble keeping weight off and I'm constantly tired. I've also been diagnosed with depression and I am on medication for it. I've requested consults with nephrologists and endocrinologists but have been turned down as my levels are still "normal".
