Avatar f tn Long term pain management with opiates cause sexual dysfunction of 50% of all patients, both men and women.

Avatar m tn Having extra estrogens triggers your body to slow its production of testosterone. And the less testosterone you make, the more belly fat you accumulate and the more estrogens you have. Researchers have also targeted midriff weight as the strongest predictor of a condition called symptomatic androgen deficiency, or AD. It's marked by low libido, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, depressed mood, lethargy, and diminished physical performance.
Avatar m tn I have been struggling with weight loss for 10+ years. My new doctor ordered a testosterone test and my results came back "low". I was referred to an endocrinologist, and I did not have a good rapport with her and did not feel as though she understood the years of effort I have put into trying to keep my weight down. After tests, she did not recommend testosterone treatment.
Avatar m tn The more I researched about the possibility of weight loss and HCV treatment meds, I knew it would be the kind of weight loss I did not want if it happened to me. So far, I am not responding to the meds as well (virologically) as I would like- but I still have the sides. As we all know - a lot of sides will happen no matter what. Try a Google search on amino acid Glutamine (L-Glutamine).
Avatar m tn However, this has caused a lot of health issues for consumers—especially men. Men who weren’t expecting to be exposed to hormones from foods like beef and chicken have found themselves negatively impacted. In particular, hormones added to meats and poultries can inhibit testosterone production while encouraging the production of estrogen, which is the female hormone. Elevated levels of estrogen in men cause them to take on more feminine characteristics.
Avatar m tn s just buried in the fat pad. A good weight loss program can sometimes (but not always) correct that. Unfortunately, that is often the last place you'll lose subQ fat. There is no known successful or safe "penis enlargement" surgery. Unfortunately, a penis is not like a breast (no implants to enlarge it), but then again, unlike breasts, penises do not show except in the tightest skimpiest bathing suit.
Avatar m tn However depression in senior citizens can have many other contributing factors not associated with testosterone levels. Loss of career, a mate, loss of friends, decline in health, loneliness and many other age related issues can cause depression. I don't know the reason for your question but consider all the factors when making your assumption. Best of luck to you.

484508 tn?1290010544 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. Usually morning testosterones are highest though the variation in the course of the day tends to diminish as men get older. Generally, though, I would suggest a morning value along with a prolactin (another hormone that rarely is related to low testosterone) as well as a check on your thyroid function.

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 Your testosterone is apparently in the normal range. How do you know that this is low for your age? Also, losing weight only benefits can bring to you if you have it in excess. So, you mean here that you have 100 pounds more than normal for your age and height? That sounds to be a lot, especially combined with a sedentary job. Regardless of testosterone considerations, losing weight is a no-brainer in your case.
Avatar m tn Masturbation in men causes loss of Testosterone and and also adds stress which converts the testosterone in blood to Di Hydro Testosterone (DHT) by a process called 5-alpha reductase. This has been found to be the major factor contributing to hair loss in 95% of the people suffering from Male Pattern Baldness (MPB).

Avatar n tn Is it true that weight loss is the first sign of ARS? What is this weight loss due to?
Avatar n tn The average male will lose low levels of testosterone every yr. after about the age of 30-35. I can guarantee you if the loss of testosterone was not gradual,men would be rushing to their MD. In my case (55 yr. old-male) I started self injections of testosterone every week for my low "T" number. It has helped my energy,libido,and given me a better outlook on life. The self injections were a bit daunting at first, but now it is easy as brushing your teeth.
