Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone in the morning


Avatar m tn Hi, One of the doctor referred me Andriol Testocaps (2 capsule int he morning and 1 in the evening) for 3 months. Is it a steroid and having it for 3 months will going to have side / ill effects ?
Avatar n tn It sounds like what worries you the most is the testosterone deficiency. First off, the level of circulating testosterone in the bloodstream varies through the course of the day, being highest when you first wake up, and then decreasing through the day. As a result, I would suggest that you validate the testosterone results again when you visit your Endocrinologist - ideally, the test should be performed between 7-11am.
Avatar m tn Normally you have to check the T level once or twice more before considering HRT, as a single measurement need not necessarily be correct. Also you should do the testing in the morning hours. Measurement of free T is also needed, as in your case SHBG,count would be low, which in turn could increase both free and bio-available T levels.
Avatar m tn but turning down my wife or not being in the mood has gotten real old. I had my testosterone tested 2007 total was 297..my doctor did nothing. 2010 I have a New doctor now my test is total 453 free 11.6 My new primary doctor and I agree optimim total should be 800 free 18.0 Doc says my testicles have atrophied a bit.

Avatar n tn The pituitary is the master gland and it basically tells the rest of the body to release the chemicals to produce the correct amount of testosterone. Testosterone comes from your testes as well as from the adrenal glands so they should check out the adrenals as well. Both estrogen and testosterone are redundant systems.
Avatar n tn Specifically, 50mg touches, 2 in the AM 1 in the PM. This morning after taking my dosage, I began experiencing diarrhea, nausea etc. Went and got some Pepto and seem to be ok now. My question is: Are these symptoms something I should be worried about or are they typical and something I simply need to get used to?
Avatar m tn This is a simple inexpensive test that you can request from your GP. The blood test should performed first thing in the morning, before breakfast. You have to understand that if your levels are normal and you take a supplement your sex organs may atrophy. Testosterone also increases red blood cell production.
Avatar m tn Even though your serum testo level is towards the lower range, the free testo level is towards the mid range. That means your testo control centers in the brain sees enough bio available testo and therefore tends to reduce the serum level.However there are widely accepted reference range for serum testo than free testo and that is why it is normally measured as an indicator.
650419 tn?1281363537 Can I take the shot to get my level of testosterone where it needs to be and then have the pellets sown in in order to keep my testosterone level where it needs to be for 3 or 4 months at a time? Any help answering my questions will be much appreciated.
Avatar n tn I was taking the supplement everyday at the same exact time. I did not notice any problems while taking the supplement however now that I have stopped I have. The Thursday after I stopped the supplement I noticed that up around my right thigh felt like it had a tight band around it with a little pain the whole way around. My lower back hurt on my right side and so my right bicep and forearm.
Avatar n tn My doctor told me my testosterone should be in the 150-250 area. I was 25. It happen due to an infection in both testicles that took about 8 weeks to heal. My doctor wants to wait for another month before he might do something. I'm tired of waiting, Can't please my wife or me. I'm dealing with sweat attacks daily and I forget things. I'm tired all the time and we have a baby on the way soon I need to be my best for my family. What would you recommend I say to my doctor?
Avatar n tn Patients who have low testosterone levels often have other symptoms also like low sex desire, low muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, poor sleep, difficulty in concentrating, depression etc. You can get the testosterone levels done which is usually done in the morning and the normal levels are between 300-1000 ng/dl. If the levels are around 300, then the treatment is done with IM injections of testosterone given every 2 weeks. You’re not late for the treatment and it can be done at any age.
Avatar n tn I would also think that testing testosterone via the saliva would not be as accurate as doing a blood test. Repeating the blood test, and asking for a more detailed testosterone study (including free testosterone levels) can be considered. If symptoms continue, discussion with an endocrinologist can be considered. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar n tn I have further found by testing by my GP that my testosterone is at the very lower limit of the normal range (measured in the morning). I have been reading a lot of studies associating low testosterone with greater risk of CAD, although I don't think any prospective studies have shown this nor has supplementation been studied. My GP has offered to prescribe supplements based on other symptoms, but the lipid specialist would not, saying it would lower my HDL.

Avatar m tn So on my own impulse, I bought Testosterone capsules ( 40 mg ). I take two capsules in the morning and one at night. But I am not seening any change. I have been taking it since last three days. Please advise if my decision is correct if so then should I increase the dose ? Or keep taking it for some time untill i feel the change. Please advise help me ith it. I want to live my life.
Avatar m tn Right this is a hormon that we have in our bodys, but it gets slowed down as we get older, so taken DHEA will boost it up, it boosts our testosterone, will lift your libido, and kick up your energy levels, you can back it up with Tribulus, works along the same lines, so by taken Tribulus you will get a second boost, tribulus take around 8 weeks to get to full power, and DHEA starts to work in a few days, just start it at a low level say 25mg a day and work it to you think its right for you, me

Avatar n tn hello my testosterone is 650 in the morning and at night it is only 250 is that normal.
Avatar m tn I went to an area hospital.A little blood is drawn(best time is in the morning when your testosterone levels are highest) Very simple. In my case my testosterone was low,so I started testosterone injections. Changed my life!

Avatar n tn The concentration reaches a peak in the early morning hours and falls by up to 25-40 % in the course of the day. The lowest levels are reached during the night. In addition, the testosterone concentration can be influenced by food intake and physical activity."

Avatar m tn 'morning i just turned 59, i am in great shape, go to the gym, eat well, low blood pressure, etc... although i though i was in a good form, AND after 3 - 4 months of all sort of difficulties/symptoms like lack of energy, diminished quality of sleep, lack of interest. i decided to see my physician and have lab work done. i was told my testosterone level was on the low side. Results were communicated by phone, i was offered 2 alternatives, between the gel and the injections.
Avatar m tn Low testosterone might have been just on that minute of that day, as levels change throughout the day -- highest in the morning, for example. There are things you can do about that, too. Staying in bed for this won't fix it.
Avatar n tn Probably because I pee a couple times thru out the night. Don't touch your penis for a week and come back here with the results... thanks.
1139187 tn?1355710247 I am a 44 year old male who has literally suffered the last 2 years with very low thyroid and testosterone. My testosterone level is 215 , 230 and the highest it has been was 245. I never thought that my symptoms of absolute fatigue could be from low t. I also have no sex drive despite being mentally. Engaged in thinking about it like a normal guy. My ears ring as well. I had some androgel prescribed to me about 5 months ago and just started taking it about 5 days ago.
Avatar m tn The blood pressure medication in particular does not interfere with this function, it is exactly the same or better than it was without it. I got my testosterone level checked, and they didn't know exactly what they were doing because they only checked the total, and it was 443. I thought I had found the answer to my problem, and I still believe that's what it is. Researching this on the internet I found that is the average level for someone who is 60.
Avatar m tn There does not seem to be many side effects to most herbs, I did get some high blood pressure from Viagra, but now since being on mostly herbs I feel and get some real good erections, and the morning woods are good, I even get woken in the night with some real boners and never had that before.
