Avatar m tn t aromatize to estrogen would shut down the bodies natural production of testosterone. Because that would essentially limit the need for an aromatase inhibitor.
20790871 tn?1507161421 It is difficult for me to pinpoint what could be causing this because a lot of things in my life changed when this issue started occurring. My diet changed, I lost a bit of weight(down to 6.4% body fat), my training intensified, and I started two medications for depression (Lexapro and Wellbutrin). I gained the weight back after I quit competitive running, but the hair thinning persists.
Avatar m tn Testosterone would not cause this. You are right -- it looks like Graves. I assume you are not on thyroid meds (you mentioned feeling hypo, but were never diagnosed with hypo in the past from how I read your post). It is possible to use a medication like tapazole to bring things back into range, in the meantime - cut back on exercise until heart rate at rest is better controlled (consistently <80).
Avatar m tn hey man all these things you have suggested are correct regarding the causes. hypertension affects many actually all body systems in a negative fashion. I myself have been in strength training and bodybuilding for several years I was a lightweight when I started and gained close to 50 lbs of muscle after a few yrs of hard training and nutrition. it's a lifestyle for me and so when strength and size became harder to attain I resorted to other means (test) for the most part.

Avatar n tn It implies the toxins responsible for patm can be accompanied with or without odor compounds. If there’s tens of thousands of rogue compounds oozing out of a leakygut, surely some compound will be odorless and others that the nose can pick up. Try this to prove to yourself. Go and take a swim in a public swimming pool. Keep your whole body below the water with head sticking out. The water is sanitized with a form of chlorine so anything around your anus will be eliminated.
Avatar m tn I have just completed 48 weeks of triple therapy. ( I had HCV for 10 yrs at phaze 1) I do not drink, have not for five yrs. I do not use drugs, never have. Anyway. I was a physically fit guy before treatment, (6' 225lbs 11% body fat) lifted weights for years and never used steroids. I have last about 35 lbs while on treatment. Now after treatment it seams like it would take yrs to accomplish what was undone in 48 wks.
Avatar m tn many hormones play a role in gynecomastya, the main three are testosterone, estradiol and prolactine, regarding the testosterone you should have a healthy testosterone to estradiol ratio, estradiol E2 (estrogen) is a very important hormone for bothe genders and its very supportive for your immune system, your bone structure your emotions and even your sex drive but it should always be in a right balance with testosterone, if it was imbanced it will cause many troubles including gyno.
Avatar f tn i have just gave blood samples for SHBG but i dont know if the testosterone test is for bio-available or not, my doc not up to scratch on this hormone thing and my endo is all for keeping ;me in the dark, i wish i knew more about the whole system. I am on 50mg of DHEA DAILY which makes no difference at all and on fluoextine 30 mg and the testosterone patch but nothing seems to make any difference. moods are all over the place and depression can set in occassionally as nothing seems to change.
Avatar m tn Herbs such as maca, yojimbe (from which one of the testosterone raising medications was made), Chinese or Korean ginseng and many others can help raise testosterone, and there are pro-hormones such as DHEA and the stuff athletes take that can also help. Something to discuss with your doctor and perhaps a naturopath, since this may be partly to blame for the anxiety itself.

Avatar f tn Hi , I am wondering if anyone knows for a definite whether or not athletes in contact sports like basketball (pro or semi pro) are required to test for HIV? I had a guy tell me that he is required to test every 6 months. I know that be travels to foreign countries all the time. Not sure if this makes a difference but I'm really afraid that be may have lied... We had sex with a condom and unprotected oral because I trusted what he told me. Although now I realize that was a mistake.
20000695 tn?1488217942 Two weeks prior of my menstrual cycle, I start to experience abrupt feelings of sadness, depression, or anxiety; sometimes there are reasons for them (whatever it is that elicits these feelings doesn't bother me as much on a regular day), other times, there is no actual reason, it's just a strong pang of hopelessness or anxiety. I notice I may cry over nothing, it could actually be because of the overwhelming emotions coursing through me during this time.
Avatar n tn To Hensley258 To get tested for low testosterone is very simple, just a blood screen. Although I was told to fast for 8 hours and get the test in the morning when your natural testosterone level is typically at the highest level.
401095 tn?1351391770 I am also very interested in how the testosterone shots go. I have thought about them for myself. it is not unusual for women to be low in testosterone. it occurs natuarlly in women too but is counter balanced by estrogen. maybe i need some of that? lol, i don't think so. i have noticed that adrenalin is great for fighting pain(as are other naturally occurring chemicals)and have often thought about getting my levels of all these chemicals checked. maybe i should. Nick.
578950 tn?1217771704 ve been putting cream for athletes foot on them, but that only seems to have helped the athletes foot part, if I even had that at all in the first place of course. Any idea what this could be? Loads of pictues of it taken over the last week or so here: http://s46.photobucket.
Avatar f tn Where can I find the latest medical advice on using Testosterone gel 13 years after prostate removal? Removed because of cancer. Doctor keeps saying that Testosterone Therapy is not proper for patients who have had prostate cancer. I feel like my energy battery is just about depleated and seem to have all of the symptoms for need of T Therapy. Is there any good medical research that I can use to further discuss with Primary Care MD?
