Avatar f tn A problem is, testosterone varies a whole lot in both men and women, by the day, hour, week, etc. and even more in women than men, so the only true way to know if you had abnormally low levels would have been to test you a lot, not just twice. You did have the same levels twice, so it might be a problem. A question would be, how's your sexual desire? How's your stamina? How's your ability to build muscle? How's your energy levels?
Avatar f tn Some psychologists are now estimating that as much as 30% of cases of depression in men over 30 are related to testosterone levels. The issues that you have mentioned are fairly typical issues tied to low testosterone, along with the Depression that I mentioned, as well as anxiety. Your numbers are pretty much in the neighborhood of where mine are, and I'm 37.
Avatar m tn DHEA has properties of its own that benefit both men and women. Men maintain their highest levels of this hormone in their early 20s. By age 50 there is a 50% drop in DHEA, and by age 60 a man possesses only one-third the level he had as a young man. Aside from aiding in the production of testosterone and estrogen, DHEA acts as a neurohormone in the brain, protecting it from the effects of excitotoxicity and improving mood. DHEA also improves immune function and reduces abdominal (belly) fat.
Avatar m tn Some research has also linked high estrogen levels to enlargement of the prostate and Prostate Cancer. When the rise in estrogen levels is accompanied by a decline in testosterone levels which is typically the case these risks are even greater. The solution: Try and buy organic, hormone-free meat and poultries. Doing so can lower the risk of accidentally ingesting added hormones.
Avatar m tn Hello, Changes in testosterone levels occur naturally during sleep, both in men and women. Testosterone levels rise during sleep and decrease during waking hours. Studies have shown that low testosterone levels frequently occur in men with obstructive sleep apnea. Treating obstructive sleep apnea should improve the levels of testosterone but other causes of low testosterone also need to e ruled out.
Avatar m tn The UK medical journal, Heart, wrote that during one of their studies men with low testosterone levels were at double the risk of dying than men with higher testosterone levels. Considering you have heart problems now, it would probably be a good idea to go the way of the hormone replacement for the time being so you get the protection of the raised levels. After that you can figure out where you want to go with natural testosterone boosters. Hope that helps. Good luck.
Avatar f tn d heard of some overlap in symptomology, but was unaware that therapy normally prescribed for low testosterone levels was shown to help with MS symptoms. If you have information that might help folks here, though, can you post it? Thanks also to Dr. Automaton. Help just doesn't do justice.
Avatar f tn And normal range is usually (most labs) 300 to 800. About 1 to 2% (in most men) is free testosterone. The rest is attached. Free testosterone floats around and is biologically active. Half of rest of testosterone is attached to albumin. The free and the testosterone attached to albumin are available to work in your system. The rest is testosterone bound to a sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and is bound so tight it doesn't do anything.
Avatar n tn This study found that men having optimal an vitamin D amount in their system also had higher testosterone levels but lower SHBG levels. In comparison, men who were considered vitamin D-deficient or vitamin D-insufficient had lower levels of testosterone but higher amounts of SHBG.

Avatar n tn ** hormoneally" -- not sure if that is a word. But don't add a woman's birth control pills NOT prescribed to you in order to get your insurance to cover testosterone. That's both unethical and not in your best interest health wise.

You'll need your testosterone level repeated on treatment to make sure that you levels on treatment are in the normal range. S.A.Liroff, M.D. Depression, lack of energy, loss of sexual interest, may be symptoms of low testosterone. Your physician has wisely chosen to repeat the test to confirm the value.
Avatar f tn Im so sorry to hear that. Maybe going to a fertility specialist might help you.
Avatar f tn I haven't found any dangers in taking them together ( yet ), but most men claim that it doesn't help. In cases where it did work, the erections lasted too long...causing the men to seek help. He should still consult his doctor first. Viagra can affect the heart. His pharmacist should also be able to answer his questions.
Avatar m tn PART 4 Wine, According to a study printed in Nutrition Journal, vino could elevate your testosterone levels. In lab tests, researchers found that quercetin, a compound in wine, blocks an enzyme that causes the body to excrete testosterone, thereby increasing the amount of T circulating in the blood. Wine’s rich antioxidant profile also triggers nitric oxide production, which relaxes artery walls. This increases blood flow down south, creating feelings of sexual excitement.
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 m tn In conditions such as hypothyroidism and cirrhosis, measurement of the total testosterone level may be normal but the patient may have symptoms of low testosterone. In these conditions, the SHBG is increased and this decreases the amount of testosterone that is available for use. The opposite is true where SHBG is decreased and the free testosterone levels are high.
Avatar m tn However, It has not been definitively established that the decline in testosterone seen in most aging men results in an androgen deficient state with health-related outcomes that can be improved by testosterone therapy. Hence, I’ll not recommend the same. Still, it’s good to consult an endocrinologist for the same and seek an opinion. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, I am sixteen years old and I hit puberty at 14 years and for months.My problem is that I don't have mustache, beard, and hair on my arms, and I also think that my penis is not fully grown.

Avatar f tn re testing high or low, but again, most men have their highest levels in the morning, so a morning test will show higher than an evening test for most men. But again, if you got tested by your doctor, that's the person to discuss this with.
Avatar m tn Studies so far, show no relation between T level and libido in the majority of men that age. But, those studies are incomplete. The T levels those men had at age 30 or 40 are largely unknown.
