Weight Cycling and the Problem with Crash Dieting

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 9th, 2018

One of the common misconceptions about losing weight is that dieting is the best means by which to do it. Most people also think that dieting is incredibly difficult. While it is true that many struggle with dieting, most people do lose weight when they go on a diet. The problem is that, over time, willpower falls and people go back to their old, poor habits, regaining the weight that they lost successfully. So the biggest problem isn’t losing weight for most individuals, it’s maintaining and continuing weight loss. This is known as weight cycling. Weight Cycling is defined as series of periods of purposeful weight loss and accidental weight gain, generally caused by failed diet attempts. One of the most frustrating aspects of weight cycling is that it can actually lead to weight gain! This is because the body stores fat more readily per calorie consumed when food becomes scarce. So while you lose weight during your diet, your body actually stores more fat per calorie. When you give up on your diet or lose your resolve, most people start eating much like they did before they started the diet. This causes them to gain weight because their bodies

Excessive Use of Tylenol / Acetaminophen May Negatively Affect Testosterone Levels in Unborn Boys

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 9th, 2018

Tylenol is one of the most popular pain relievers used in the United States, and is clinically known as Acetaminophen, or Paracetamol. There are a number of risks that have long been associated with the over-use of Tylenol, one of the most common of which is liver damage. Tylenol is actually the leading causes of Liver Toxicity in both the United States and Great Britain. A recent study produced by the University of Edinburgh shows evidence that Tylenol use may have another, less recognizable effect upon human beings. When taken regularly during pregnancy, Tylenol appears to suppress Testosterone production by male children in the womb. Tylenol Linked to Reproductive Issues in Boys Previous studies have provided similar data, which shows that taking too much Tylenol while pregnant can lead to increased odds of reproductive abnormalities in the male child. Producers of Tylenol and its generic counterparts are already required to label their bottles to indicate the risk, and warn that pregnant women should use Tylenol as briefly as possible with the lowest dosage of medication to provide relief. Many women may wish to forgo Tylenol entirely as a result of this information. Prenatal Testosterone Study Performed on Mice This particular

Andropause: Age-Associated Testosterone Decline

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 5th, 2018

  Andropause: Age-Associated Testosterone Decline Are you over the age of thirty, and feel like your body is starting to just slow down? Are you starting to experience sexual issues such as low libido or erectile dysfunction? You very well may be suffering from Andropause. Andropause is a natural condition and nothing to be embarrassed about. What is Andropause? Andropause is a natural, age-related condition that men deal with, that bears some similarity to Menopause. Beginning at puberty, male Testosterone Levels skyrocket, and drop to normal adult levels by the late teens. Those high Testosterone Levels contribute to a lot of the characteristics that we attribute to teenagers and young men. They are full of vitality and bursting with libido and sexual desire. They tend to be highly confident and assertive, and there’s a reason why many men consider this the physical peak of their lives. The Effects of Low-T and Andropause Clearly Shown in Athletes Of course, like all good things, this healthy Testosterone Production eventually comes to an end.

High-Dose Testosterone Injections May Be a Viable Palliative Late-Stage Prostate Cancer Treatment

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 5th, 2018

There is some evidence that Testosterone encourages the proliferation of prostate cancer cells, but new research shows that Testosterone Injections directly to the prostate may improve patients long-term outcomes when dealing with inoperable prostate cancer. No studies have shown that elevated Testosterone Levels are associated with an increased incidence of Prostate Cancer, but for men with existing Prostate Cancer, high Testosterone Levels can make the cancer harder to treat. Medical professionals have understood for over 70 years that it is possible to slow the growth of Prostate Tumors by suppressing Testosterone Levels in the body. As a result of this knowledge, and further research derived from that knowledge, advanced prostate cancer is often treated by prescribing the patient with pharmaceuticals designed to sharply slow down the release of Testosterone, and other hormones that can be converted into Testosterone. This medical regimen is known as chemical castration. Unfortunately, this is often only a stop-gap, short-term measure, as prostate cancer, like many other cancers, is highly adapative to changes in environment, and often learns to thrive even in an ecosystem where Testosterone Levels are very low. They have a few different mechanisms by which this adaptation is possible, two of the most

Fourteen Common Causes of Fatigue and What You Can Do to Improve Your Energy Levels!

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 3rd, 2018

Do you have trouble maintaining adequate energy levels through the day? Fatigue is a major issue which can significantly disrupt quality of life. If you find yourself suffering from fatigue, it’s important for you to understand the causes of fatigue and how your lifestyle habits and your physiology may be preventing you from feeling your best. As you read through this list, take stock in yourself and try to figure out which of these causes may be contributing to your poor energy levels. By recognizing what is preventing you from being at your best, you can take steps to correct the problem. Inadequate Sleep Leads to Fatigue One of the most common causes of fatigue is directly related to the amount of rest that you get. The average adult should get between seven and nine hours of sleep per night. Every person is different, but sleep is the period during which our bodies rest and rejuvenate, and if you have chronic issues getting enough sleep, this will disrupt your production of vital hormones such as Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone, and it will leave you groggy and weighed-down in the morning.

Testosterone Therapy and Androgen Deficiency Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 2nd, 2018

Testosterone Therapy and Androgen Deficiency Guide Testosterone Deficiency goes by a number of names, including Low-T and Hypogonadism. When Low-T is the result of the aging process, it is known as Andropause or Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency. As a whole, Low-T is a a syndrome, which means that it represents a collection of symptoms rather than a simply definable medical condition with a consistent cause. A number of issues can lead to Low-T, from genetic defects to surgery and radiation related to injury and cancer. It is also often simply the result of the body slowly losing its ability to produce sufficient Testosterone as a factor of age. For men with Testosterone Deficiency, Low-T Therapy is a highly effective way to restore normalcy and proper hormone balance for the patient. Testosterone is often used for other purposes, such as anti-aging, appearance, performance enhancement, and strength training, but these uses are not approved of by the FDA. Testosterone is not an Anti-Aging drug, but, for patients with Testosterone Deficiency, Bio-Identical Low-T Treatment can help mitigate a number of symptoms that are commonly associated with the aging process.

Testosterone Deficiency has a big impact on male health, and, like most hormonal deficiencies, Low-T leads to a full spectrum of related symptoms. Among the most well-known signs of Testosterone Deficiency are low sex drive, fatigue, and depression. These aren’t the only symptoms, however, and knowing a greater range of symptoms can help you recognize your need for treatment more quickly. Andropause not only affects sex, energy levels, and psychological well-being, but it can also impacts bodyfat distribution, cognitive health, cardiovascular health, and the strength of your bones. If you feel that Testosterone Deficiency may be suppressing your ability to live and enjoy your life, it is simple and easy to get tested for Low-T. A physical and blood test provide all of the information needed to assess your Testosterone Levels. Let’s discuss some of the less well-recognized symptoms of Low-T. Testosterone Deficiency Saps Bone Density One of the most insidious symptoms of Low-T is that it reduces your bone mineral density, putting you more at risk for Osteoporosis, bone fractures, and breaks. Less Testosterone leads directly to weaker bones. The scary thing about this is that Osteoporosis isn’t easily diagnosed until you actually break a bone. Studies have shown

Testosterone’s Effects Upon the Human Body

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 1st, 2018

Testosterone is the quintessential hormone which represents masculinity. It is the very reason why embryos become boys and boys become men, as the prenatal male starts to secrete his own Testosterone in the womb starting around 50 days after conception. Testosterone levels drop significantly after differentiation completes in the womb, and stays low until puberty, when both Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone Levels start to increase. Testosterone Production continues to increase throughout adolescence, and reaches its apex around 17-19 years of age. After this period, Testosterone levels hit a plateau, and remain high for the next 10-15 years. Starting at around the age of thirty, Testosterone Production falls from this plateau, dropping a bit each year, around an average of 1.5% annually. The majority of men produce more than their fair share of Testosterone, especially men under the age of forty, but the older that men get, the more likely that they are to experience abnormally low levels of Testosterone, a condition known as Testosterone Deficiency. Men that don’t produce enough Testosterone start to go into a physiological decline that effects them physically, psychologically, and sexually. They start to gain weight and lose muscle mass. They become less interested in

Exercise Optimizes Testosterone Production

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 1st, 2018

As a man, it’s important to recognize that your body goes through certain changes as you grow older. The changes that a man goes through are not entirely unlike those which a woman go through, in a way. Male health is largely associated with Testosterone Levels, and as men get closer to middle age, their Testosterone Production starts to drop, first slowly, then at a faster rate. Eventually men start to feel these changes in their mind and see the changes in their body. When Testosterone Decline starts to become symptomatic, this is a condition known as Andropause, but also known as Low-T or Hypogonadism. Symptoms of Low-T and Testosterone Deficiency Testosterone Deficiency has a wide variety of symptoms associated with it, but there are five symptoms that you really need to look out for: Depression and Anxiety Fatigue and Exhaustion Declining Libido and Sexual Function Loss of Muscle Strength and Tone Buildup of Unwanted Body Fat Low-T Diagnosis Requires Lab Testing Of course, many of these symptoms share similarities with other disorders.

Bio-Identical Testosterone There is no doubt that Bio-Identical Testosterone has become increasingly popular over the course of the last generation. There are millions upon millions of aging males that have turned to Low-T Therapy from reputable Hormone Clinics in order to treat Andropause, also known as Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency. Testosterone Creams, Patches, and Injections have shown to be highly capable of boosting Testosterone Levels back to normal (And restoring sex drive and energy) for men suffering from Hypogonadism, but there has always been the question of drawbacks. What is the potential downside of Testosterone? Historically, the lack of longitudinal studies has impaired our knowledge regarding what the risks of Testosterone Therapy truly are, but a growing number of studies released over the course of the last few years have quickly changed what we know about Testosterone. Studies nearer to the turn of the century seemed to suggest that there may be a correlation between cardiovascular disease and Testosterone Therapy, and this necessitated further study to truly recognize the safety concerns related to Low-T Treatment with Therapeutic Testosterone.

What is Hypopituitarism

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

Hypopituitarism is a medical condition in which the pituitary gland is unable to sufficiently produce hormones that are normally produced by the gland. There are a number of hormones that are produced by the pituitary, and Hypopituitarism can refer to a deficiency in any individual hormone, as well as multiple hormones. This deficiency can be partial or total. Many forms of Hypopituitarism, especially Total Hormone Deficiencies, are quite rare, whereas other, partial and age-related forms of Hypopituitarism are more common. What is the Pituitary Gland and Where is It Located? The pituitary gland is located at the base of the human brain, it is relatively small, but it performs vital functions necessary to maintain hormone homeostasis. The pituitary is around the size and shape of a lima bean. You can approximate the location of the pituitary gland by moving directly back from the nose to just behind the midpoint of the skull, right between the ears. Although the pituitary is quite small, it has an enormous amount of influence on the body, with its reach extending to nearly every organ and physiological process of the body. Processes that the pituitary gland is directly involved in include reproduction, blood pressure, and

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

Hypogonadism refers to any condition which depletes the body’s ability to produce sex hormones. In the case of men, Hypogonadism refers to a suppressed ability or inability to produce Testosterone, Luteinizing Hormone, or Follicle Stimulating Hormone. Both Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone are necessary to produce Testosterone and Sperm.

What is Andropause

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

Andropause is a hormonal condition that impacts men as they grow older, caused by natural changes in hormone balance that are inevitably associated with aging. This change in hormone production can lead to psychological, sexual, and physical changes which inhibit health, suppress vitality, and increase the risk of a variety of conditions that can impair health and wellness. In the past, it was assumed that these physiological changes were strictly due to aging, but the more that doctors research male aging, the more that they discover is actually associated with hormone imbalance and the more it seems possible to alleviate those symptoms effectively with Testosterone Therapy. Andropause goes by a number of different names. It belongs to a subset of conditions known as Male Hypogonadism, but it is also referred to as Androgen Decline in the Aging Male and Late-Onset Hypogonadism. Not all men experience significant changes as a direct result of Andropause, and produce levels of Testosterone that are in the normal range for their entire life. Other men will experience these symptoms relatively early, even in the thirties in many cases! You’ll sometimes hear Andropause called the Male Menopause, but this isn’t necessarily accurate. Menopause is a sudden

Hypogonadism Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

Hypogonadism is the term for any condition which causes sex hormones to be produced at levels which are inadequate for normal and healthy function. In males, Hypogonadism is also known as Low-T or Testosterone Deficiency. Dependent upon the age at which Hypogonadism becomes a health issue, the symptoms can be dramatically different. Healthy sex hormone production is absolutely necessary for the development of secondary sexual characteristics during puberty, and if Testosterone or Estrogen Levels are too low, this can lead to delayed puberty or underdevelopment. In adulthood, Hypogonadism affects physiological function rather than development. Testosterone is vitally important to both health and sexual function in men. In women, Estrogen is necessary for the menstrual cycle and normal fertility. In both sexes, Testosterone is directly associated with sexual desire and performance. If a man doesn’t produce enough Testosterone, libido suffers, erectile function diminishes, and fertility falls dramatially. Treatments options for Hypogonadism depend on the underlying cause of Sex Hormone Deficiency, but usually revolve around effective use of Testosterone Replacement Therapy or Clomiphene Citrate. Primary Hypogonadism in Men In men, Primary Hypogonadism is a condition in which the testes are unable to adequately produce Testosterone in order to meet the physiological requirements

Brown Fat Metabolism-Boosting Method Discovered Obesity is a national epidemic in the United States, and a growing problem across the world. As more and more countries are stabilizing their food supplies, they begin to have to deal with issues like overeating and obesity more often. According to the WHO, there are almost 1.5 billion men and women across the world that are clinically obese or overweight. On top of that, there are more than forty million boys and girls under five years old that are at least overweight. Our bodies simplyaren’t designed to withstand obesity, and it it incredibly detrimental to our long term health. For example, the eating habits associated with obesity significantly increase the risk of Adult-Onset Diabetes. Type-2 Diabetes is a form of Insulin Resistance, which reduces the ability of the body to transport energy, in the form of glucose, to target cells throughout the body. Obesity can even lead to infertility or suppressed fertility. Adipose fat encourages the conversion of Testosterone into Estrogen, which can lead to low sperm counts and erectile dysfunction in men. Obesity also increases the risk of heart disease, because poor diet leads to elevated cholesterol levels which increase the incidence of

The Significance of Telomeres in Stem Cell Treatments

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

The body of Stem Cell Research is still relatively small, as the field of research and treatment is still in its earlier stages, but as we learn more about how to use Stem Cells for the benefit of patients, it becomes clear that Telomere Length plays a major role in the functionality of Therapeautic Stem Cells. What Are Telomeres and How Do They Affect Your Life Expectancy? Telomeres are vital genetic structures that maintain the structural integrity of the chromosomes. They are made up of repeating patterns of nucleotides that preserve the genetic code. Telomeres can more easily be understood as comparable to the aglets of a shoelace—the tips that hold the shoelace together. Telomeres are incredibly important because they maintain the function of the chromosome. Every time that a cell replicates, a microscopic sliver of the Telomere is shaved off. Over time, the Telomeres become so short that they can no longer replicate. This is the point at which the cell stops dividing, and the cell goes into a state of degradation over time. Luckily, there are processes which preserve Telomere length, primarily through the mechanisms of an enzyme known as Telomerase. Telomerase has the ability to increase Telomere

Understanding how Muscle and Fat Impact Body Mass, Weight, and Health

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

If you’ve ever tried to diet in your life, which most Americans have, you’ve probably felt frustration with the weight scale. You spend two or three weeks working out and eating better only to find that you have only lost a little bit of weight, or perhaps even none at all! Some people even gain a little weight when they start working out. It’s important to realize, however, that the scale never tells the whole story of your dieting journey. Most people are somewhat aware of the concept that muscle weighs more than fat, but don’t realize the implications. This fact is actually the biggest reason why people get so frustrated with scales when they start working out for health. For people that are trying to drop fat and feel better, it may even be better to not use scales at all, and just trust your health regimen and the mirror. One of the many reasons that diets fail is because people focus only on the scale and lose faith in their ability to lose weight. Muscle Vs. Fat At first glance, the idea that muscle weighs more than fat might seem a little strange. Of course, an ounce of

The Role of Nitric Oxide in Cancer Proliferation And Prevention

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 25th, 2018

Nitric Oxide is an important and multifaceted chemical messenger, that is incredibly vital for maintaining human function. Nitric Oxide acts similar to a hormone, but is an inorganic compound. There is even some evidence that Nitric Oxide can be used therapeautically in order to halt the growth of cancerous tumors. Though Nitric Oxide has been heavily studied, scientists are still in the process of learning the specific mechanisms by which Nitric Oxide mitigates tumor growth. Depending on external factors, Nitric Oxide can also facilitate tumor growth, so it is important to understand specifically the role that Nitric Oxide plays in order to both facilitate new and better cancer treatments and reduce cancer risk. What is Nitric Oxide? Nitric Oxide has been a known entity since the late 19th century, but it was not until 1998 that researchers began to discover the functions of Nitric Oxide in the human system. Three doctors won the Nobel Prize in 1998 for describing Nitric Oxide’s function as a vasodilator. All living human cells have the capacity to produce Nitric Oxide, which is a free radical molecule that can be absorbed in water. What does Nitric Oxide Do? Nitric Oxide is a chemical messenger that

Your Life on Testosterone: Overly Sure, Unwilling to Listen to Anyone

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on July 22nd, 2018

A study testing the effect of testosterone has found that it dramatically lowers cooperation between individuals, making people more egocentric. In this study, people performed their task more poorly under the influence of testosterone. It didn’t affect their individual performance, but the lack of cooperation it caused resulted in partners making the wrong choice more frequently than they did when not under the influence of testosterone. Oh, and by the way, all the subjects were women. Self-centered, unwilling to listen, and overly sure of yourself. This is your life on testosterone, even if you are female. The study was of 17 pairs of women who had never met before. Each pair participated in two sessions held three to seven days apart. In one session, both women were given an oral testosterone supplement (80 mg of testosterone undecanoate) six to seven hours before the session. For the other session, neither woman received testosterone. Each session consisted of 192 trials. In each trial, the women sat at separate computer screens and were shown the same two sets of images. Each set contained six images of a grating. In one set, one image was sharper (higher contrast) than all the others. The women

Understanding Heartburn in the 21st Century

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 22nd, 2018

Heartburn is incredibly painful, and most people have experienced the condition at least a few times in their lives. Surprisingly, though heartburn has been studied since the dawn of modern medicine, there are still a lot of important questions to be asked, and hypotheses that were previously considered true are being questioned once again. Heartburn and Acid Reflux are a widespread health issue throughout the United States. Around 20% of Americans deal with heartburn or Upper Gastrointestinal Pain. What Causes Heartburn? For closing in on a century, it has been generally agreed upon that the root cause of heartburn is the excess secretion of acid in the esophagus. Recent research provides powerful evidence that Heartburn is a much more complex condition, and that the problem isn’t due directly to the influence of the acid itself, but to inflammation that stimulates that acid production. Chronic inflammation is a major medical issue that has far-reaching effects, and new research shows that inflammation has a powerful impact on proper digestion, and can lead to heartburn in many patients, exacerbating the issues already resulting from elevated acid levels. Redefining Heartburn: GERD The scientific term for Heartburn is Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), relating to the

The Importance of Proteins, Carbs, and Fats

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 21st, 2018

The human body is a wonderful machine that requires a lot of ingredients to function properly and keep you feeling happy and healthy. This article is about the three macronutrients that the body needs to survive: Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Fats. Each serves a specific need for your body, and each has a life-sustaining role to play. What Are Proteins? Proteins are organic compounds which are comprised of amino acids. To date, there are twenty known amino acids that the body utilizes, eleven of which are made naturally by the human body. The means that nine others must be consumed in your diet. These amino acids are known as Essential Amino Acids. Why Do We Need Protein? Every one of our cells uses protein, and protein is necessary in the diet in order to fix what’s broken and to help build and rebuild tissues. For example, after you work out, your body uses protein from your diet to patch up and reinforce your muscle tissue, which is what heals you and makes you stronger. Positive Nitrogen Balance is an important concept to consider when thinking about protein. This simply means that you are eating enough protein frequently enough to meet the

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 20th, 2018

Erectile Dysfunction refers to a man’s inability to generate or sustain an erection in a way that allows him to enjoy sexual activity. Erectile Dysfunction has many root causes, and becomes more common as men grow older. There are a number of effective treatments for Erectile Dysfunction to help men restore their sexual vitality and potency. Erectile Dysfunction also refers to issues which hinder sexual drive as well as core sexual function. What Causes Erectile Dysfunction? Erectile Dysfunction (commonly referred to simply as “ED”) is always the symptom of another underlying problem. The male erection is a hydraulic process tied to erotic desire and sensation. Anything that prevents a man from “getting hard” is a cause for Erectile Dysfunction. Erectile Dysfunction can even be rooted in psychology. Some men, especially those that experience psychological trauma or depression, can have issues with sexual function. The following are some other causes of Erectile Dysfunction: Sleep Issues Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Treatments for Enlarged Prostate Prostate Cancer Treatment Prescription Drug Side-Effect Obesity Diabetes High Blood Pressure Poor Cholesterol Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Disease and Heart Disease Metabolic Syndrome Hormone Imbalance As you can see, Erectile Dysfunction is associated with a variety of other health issues

Sermorelin Acetate Drug Information

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 20th, 2018

What is Sermorelin Acetate? Sermorelin Acetate is a Recombinant Prescription Medication designed for the treatment of Idiopathic Human Growth Hormone Deficiency in Children and Adults. Sermorelin Acetate is often prescribed in lieu of Human Growth Hormone Therapy in order to elevate and/or restore normal Endogenous Human Growth Hormone Levels. Sermorelin Acetate is a truncated version of a naturally produced hormone known as Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone, or GH-RH. How Does Sermorelin Acetate Work? Sermorelin works by perfectly copying the effect of GH-RH on the pituitary gland. When the body recognizes a need for Human Growth Hormone, the Hypothalamus releases GH-RH to stimulate the Pituitary Somatotrophs which are responsible for secreting endogenous Human Growth Hormone. GH-RH travels through a series of blood vessels in the brain known as the Hypophyseal Portal System to activate the Somatotrophs. At this point, Human Growth Hormone is Released. What’s the Difference between Sermorelin and GH-RH? Sermorelin is a functional analogue of GH-RH, meaning that, though it is not molecularly identical, it stimulates the human body in the same way. Sermorelin contains the functional protein structure of GH-RH, without the physiologically impotent junk proteins that comprise a portion of the hormone. This makes it cheaper to produce

Exercise and Mental Health

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 20th, 2018

It’s common to emphasize the physical benefits of exercise, but for many people, the psychological benefits of exercise are just as significant, and may even outweigh the importance of losing weight and improving strength and energy levels. It can be hard to establish a diet or exercise plan. Ask anyone that’s tried to convert from a sedentary lifestyle to a more thoughtful and active lifestyle. On the other hand, most people that engage in a life of activity seem to feed off of it, and the psychological and physiological changes caused by a good exercise routine are self-reinforcing. Increased energy levels ward off fatigue. Sleep comes easier and provides improved wakefulness. In general, there is an improved sense of well-being that is directly associated with exercise. It works the other way around too. People that don’t get enough exercise are more likely to struggle to get off the couch or even out of bed. They also are more likely to suffer from memory issues, and are more likely to suffer from issues with anxiety and depression. Many psychological issues have a direct physical component. Psychological fatigue and physical fatigue go hand in hand. People that don’t get enough physical activity

Low-T Treatment Before and After — How Testosterone Therapy Improves Vitality

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 19th, 2018

For men with Testosterone Deficiency, life can feel like walking uphill every day, all the time. It makes it difficult just to keep moving forward with your life, much less maintain your current pace. Testosterone Therapy is magnificent because it can put you back in the driver’s seat of your own life, not only restoring sexual livelihood but giving you back the strength and energy to make the most of your life. Using Testosterone Safely First, we should note that Testosterone should not be used by men with healthy Testosterone Levels. There are many that turn to Testosterone to try to elevate their masculinity to super-human levels, but there are significant risks associated with the abuse of Testosterone. Testosterone, when administered therapeutically for Low-T can lead to life-changing benefits, but there is just too much risk associated with Testosterone Abuse to ever recommend it to a healthy man. How Long Will It Take to See Results with Testosterone?

For those with serious Testosterone Deficiency, Low-T Therapy with Testosterone Injections, Creams, or other forms of Prescription Testosterone are the only way to get Testosterone Levels back into a state of harmony, but for those struggling with a mild deficiency, or those looking to pump up Testosterone Levels naturally, there are some steps that you can take to bolster your Testosterone Production. You may be aware of some other ways you can promote healthy T-Levels, such as Anabolic Exercise, Interval Training, and sound sleeping habits, but in this article, we’ll be focusing on how diet may impact Testosterone Balance. Vitamin D and Testosterone Vitamins and Minerals play a crucial role in promoting Testosterone Production, Absorption, and Utilization. Vitamin D is among the most important. Recent studies have shown that, for patients with significant Vitamin D Deficiency, Testosterone Levels also become suppressed. Doctor-monitored Vitamin D Supplementation was shown to increase Testosterone in patients.

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 18th, 2018

As we learn more about Testosterone Deficiency and how our bodies respond to declining Testosterone Levels, we periodically revise our strategies regarding the determination of Low-T. Every patient is different and responds to declining Testosterone Production in their own way, but there are defined clinical limits to what are considered Normal Testosterone Levels and what is characterized as Low-T or Andropause. What is the Testosterone Normal Range? The Clinical Range for establishing healthy Testosterone Levels consists of two values. If your Testosterone Levels are lower than the base of the range, then you are considered Testosterone Deficient. The healthy Testosterone Range is referred to as either the Normal Range or the Reference Range. Any value that falls outside of this range is grounds for further examination. Abnormally high Testosterone Levels are associated with Testosterone Abuse and Cancer, low Testosterone volume is a sure sign of Low-T. When you meet us for Clinical Hormone Evaluation, we primarily use LabCorp as the Diagnostic Testing firm of choice.

How to Administer a Testosterone Injection — Low-T Injection Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 13th, 2018

Testosterone Injections are one of the most popular forms of Testosterone Therapy available today. In fact, Low-T Injections were the first treatment available for Testosterone Deficiency. Originally, Testosterone was injected daily, but as recombinant biomedical techniques have advanced, most patients only require one injection every 10-14 days. As of today, Testosterone Cypionate is the most popular form of Testosterone HRT Injection in the United States. Most typical Testosterone Shots are comprised of an ester compound melded with Bio-Identical Testosterone to provide a slow and steady supply of Testosterone over an extended period of time. The following Injection Protocol applies to all Testosterone Ester Injections. Remember, only use Recombinant Testosterone with a prescription from a licensed physician, and always follow the instructions of your doctor to the letter! Testosterone Therapy can produce amazing results for patients with clinically diagnosed Low-T, but it should always be treated with respect. Ensure that You’re Administering the Correct Testosterone Dosage The first step to injecting Testosterone is to check and make sure that you are using the right dosage, as prescribed by your doctor.

Relieve Fatigue and Increase Energy with Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 13th, 2018

Testosterone Deficiency is a multifaceted medical condition which has a widespread impact on human function. Most people are acutely aware of the sexual issues related to Andropause and Low-T, but other symptoms are less widely known and understood by the average person. One of the many symptoms which deflate quality of life for men with Testosterone Deficiency is fatigue. For men, Testosterone plays a distinct role in metabolism and energy availability. When Testosterone Levels fall to those associated with Low-T, this can lead to extreme fatigue and diminished aerobic capacity. It makes you feel like the world is dragging you down. You not only struggle to find the energy to meet your obligations, you even have trouble motivating yourself to do the things that you want to do. Things that normally excite you. As you can imagine, energy and mood are intrinsically linked. If you don’t have the energy to engage in the activities that you love, you’re more likely to suffer from depression. If you can’t meet the obligations of your life, your work, and your family, this causes stress, which leads to anxiety.

Clomiphene Citrate for Testosterone Deficiency

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 13th, 2018

As Americans become more informed, they are quickly recognizing the health risks related with Andropause and Testosterone Deficiency. Andropause is the time in a guy’s life where he no longer produces enough Testosterone to meet the body’s needs. Though Andropause is the most common type of Hypogonadism, the condition can result from a number of different causes. For example, many men lack the means to release sufficient Testosterone from birth. Others lose their ability to make enough Testosterone because of cancer, radiation, trauma, or other circumstances. For these patients, direct Testosterone Replacement is the only adequate means to treat Low-T. For most patients, however, there is another option available—Clomiphene Citrate. Clomiphene Citrate is now available for generic prescription but was originally prescribed by the brand names Clomid and Serophene. Treating Andropause with Clomiphene Citrate Most men think that Low-T is the direct result of the body’s inability to produce its own Testosterone. The truth is that, in fact, most males retain the ability to produce their own Testosterone throughout their entire lives—given the appropriate and adequate stimulation. Andropause is a form of Secondary Hypogonadism, meaning that the testes still work just fine, they simply don’t receive enough upstream signaling to

Have you been burdened with diminished libido and fatigue as you grow older? Many guys think that performance issues are simply the result of aging, but the underlying cause is frequently Low-T. Testosterone Deficiency negatively afflicts the lives of tens of thousands of men in the state of Wisconsin, if not hundreds of thousands.

Our Board Certified HRT Specialists provide quality Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatments to both men and women of thirty years of age and above, but we place a central emphasis on relieving men of the embarrassment and frustration associated with Andropause.

In order for men to retain their masculinity, they require a healthy influx of Testosterone, daily. For much of a man’s life, this isn’t a problem. During the teens, boys are drowning in Testosterone. During the twenties, the body produces an ample supply which supports physiological health and wellness. The root cause of Andropause is a decline in hormone production that begins in the late 20s and early 30s and continues for the rest of a man’s

Is Male Menopause Real? The Science of Andropause

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 11th, 2018

Like most men, you’re probably concerned about preserving healthy Testosterone Levels. Pretty much all guys are aware of Low-T, but most are still unaware of the science behind Testosterone Deficiency and how it puts all men at risk, even the healthiest of men. That’s because there is a robust age-related component to Low-T. In fact, if every man lived long enough, they would eventually experience Testosterone Deficiency. What Is Andropause? A massive subset of men begin to experience symptoms related to Testosterone Deficiency between the ages of 40 and 60. So many guys are affected that medical specialists have even coined a term for Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency—Andropause. As you can imagine, Andropause is directly related to its female relative, Menopause. Though the two conditions share a similarity in that they are both Age-Related Hormone Changes during middle age, the two issues have some distinct differences. Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when she stops menstruating, and her Hormone Balance is altered permanently as a result. In men, there are no such distinct changes that take place—guys remain able to produce Testosterone and Sperm, for example. Where Menopause is an abrupt change, Andropause is a more subtle change in

The Effects of Beer on Testosterone Production and Gynecomastia

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 11th, 2018

In spite of the efforts of Prohibition, drinking beer really is one of America’s most notable pastimes. In the 21st century, things are changing. A market once controlled by massive national breweries is now divided into a burgeoning craft beer sector. Unfortunately, excess alcohol consumption has some significant effects on male physiology that can’t be ignored. Most people are aware of the dreaded “beer belly,” but there are other issues associated with beer and alcohol consumption as well. Drinking Beer Can Cause Man Boobs One of the more embarrassing issues that can arise when you chronically drink too much beer is gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a fancy term for men growing breast tissue where it doesn’t belong. There is currently a scientific debate going on regarding the effects of hops upon Testosterone/Estrogen balance, but there are factors at play related to alcohol consumption that can lead to man-boobs. That’s because the hops that are used to brew beer have properties which can be compared to Estrogen. In high enough quantities, those hops could disrupt Hormone Balance and cause men to produce both more Estrogen and less Testosterone than they are supposed to. Specifically, these compounds are referred to as phytoestrogens. One

Male Fertility During Young Adulthood Correlated with Long-Term Health and Wellness

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 11th, 2018

We all know how important Testosterone is for establishing masculinity and preserving health in the short term, but it is becoming clearer that experiencing issues with Testosterone Levels and Fertility earlier in life can impact one’s health later in life. In a study produced by the academic publication Fertility and Sterility, evidence has been produced that shows that men that have issues with conception and sexual health earlier in life are more prone to a variety of health issues later in life. This study was a data-analysis conducted by Stanford University, in which 9,400 male patients were evaluated. Patients were selected based on select criteria: All patients were between the ages of thirty and fifty. All patients went to a fertility clinic. Among these men, patients were more likely to experience health issues such as Hypertension, Skin Issues, Heart Disease, and Vascular ailments than the general population, if their fertility issues were the result of inadequate sperm-quality. A study such as this suggests that having one’s sperm health analyzed is not only an important step for men with fertility issues, but may also be a worthwhile step in the analysis of total health and wellness, and, as such, may benefit

Causes of Male Infertility

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 10th, 2018

It may seem simple, but the process of conception is rather complicated even for men. In order for a man to conceive, there are a number of thresholds that must be met: A man must have healthy sperm, capable of conception. This requires the adequate release of Testosterone, as well as other hormones such as Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone. That sperm has to be able to mix with semen and pass through the tubes of the vas deferens without obstruction. He must produce a sufficient amount of sperm to have a significant chance of conception. The lower that a man’s sperm count is, the harder it will be for him to get his partner pregnant. If a man produces fewer than 39 million sperm per orgasm, or 15 million sperm per milliliter, he is very likely to have issues with conception. That sperm must have functional mobility. It is normal that a small portion of sperm will have issues moving properly, but the higher that this percentage is, the less likely that healthy sperm will make it successfully to the egg.

Preventing Infertility and Testicular Shrinkage with HCG Injections

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 10th, 2018

Preventing Testicular Shrinkage with HCG (For men undergoing testosterone replacement therapy for low T) One of the most embarrassing and frustrating issues associated with either aging in men or Testosterone Restoration for Men is Testicular Atrophy. There are many reasons why testicles shrink, one has to do with the natural aging process in men. Also, the testes produce less Testosterone as a result of the body receiving a flush of Testosterone from an outside source (when undergoing Testosterone Therapy), and this causes the testes to reduce their function significantly, and this also causes the testicles to shrink significantly. Some studies have indicated that HCG has helped men improve their fertility, because of how it stimulates the testicles and prevents shrinkage. HCG Keeps the Male Testicles Nice and Full! Many men choose to live with this symptoms of testosterone decline, but you would likely be happy to know that there is a way to preserve the appearance of the testicles and prevent Testicular Atrophy via Human Chorionic Gonadotropin supplementation. Some studies have indicated HCG is a potent fertility medication that can help both men and women conceive more readily, but is also highly effective in preventing the shrinkage of the testicles.

The Effects of Parenthood Upon Testosterone Levels

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 10th, 2018

Researchers are beginning to deeply understand the effects that Declining Testosterone Levels have on men as they age, but are less informed regarding how natural life experiences such as fatherhood impact Hormone Balance and Testosterone Concentrations. It is well-understood that women experience significant changes in hormone levels and hormone balance dependent not only upon their age, pregnancy status, and menstrual cycle, but as a result of motherhood itself. Men Experience Hormonal Changes During their Partner’s Pregnancy As we delve deeper into the biological mechanisms of Testosterone Production, we are beginning to learn that male Testosterone Levels can be sensitive to these life changes in a similar manner as women experience hormonal change. For example, it is well-known that pregnant women are likely to experience weight gain, cravings, and mood instability, but men also experience certain psychological and physiological changes as a result of decline in Testosterone directly correlated with impending fatherhood. In a study conducted by Dr. Robin Edelstein and associates at the University of Michigan, men were swabbed in order to analyze Testosterone Levels at a number of points while their significant other was pregnant. What researchers discovered was that, as the birth of the child drew closer, it

Low Testosterone Symptoms

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 10th, 2018

Testosterone Deficiency is one of the most commonly under diagnosed conditions in America today. There are a number of reasons for this. For one, men tend to struggle to talk to their doctor about problems related to Low-T. They don’t consider their fundamental sexual and fatigue-related issues to be the result of Testosterone Deficiency, or they simply don’t like to go to the doctor. It’s important for your long-term health and vitality that you own up to the threat of Low-T, and be vocal with your doctor when you recognize the symptoms. By being honest with your physician, you can take steps to correct your sexual inadequacy, your declining metabolism, and your fading energy levels. It’s easy to misinterpret Low Testosterone Symptoms as merely age-related decline, or the result of your own actions, but the truth is that a considerable component of Testosterone Deficiency is innate in human physiology. When Will Men Experience Low-T? Of course, not every man will experience these symptoms at the same time, and some men may never reach a point of deficiency in their lifetime, but we all experience a similar decline for the same physiological reasons. There are also some factors that people don’t

Behavioral and Health Changes Decrease Levels of Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 10th, 2018

Australian scientists recently studied testosterone and its progression in males from young to old age and discovered that gradual decline in testosterone levels is caused by both men’s lifestyles as well as aging. The findings were presented at The Endocrines Society’s 94th Annual Meeting that took place recently in Houston. The Endocrine Society focuses on research of hormones and the practice of endocrinology. Many older men are known to have diminished levels of the sex hormone testosterone. Even though the cause is debated, some population-based studies have found the changes in testosterone levels are similar among men of the same age over time. It is common knowledge that declining testosterone levels are an inevitable part of the aging process. However, there may be more to this condition than mere aging. Study co-author Dr. Gary Wittert, professor of medicine at the University of Adelaide in Australia, stated that the choices men make also plays a larger role in lowered testosterone levels than previously thought. Testosterone changes are also explained by smoking behavior and changes in health status, particularly obesity and depression. The study was supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia. The researchers measured testosterone levels in

Can Testosterone Restore Women’s Sex Drive?

It’s evident that Testosterone is a central aspect of masculine form and function, but most people aren’t aware that Testosterone plays an influential role in women’s health and wellness. Women produce significantly less Testosterone than men. In fact, they circulate about 5% of the Testosterone that a man secretes daily. Some research has been conducted regarding Testosterone Therapy for Women, but these studies have been small and do not prove the long-term effectiveness and safety of Feminine Testosterone HRT.

4 Foods to Boost Your Testosterone Levels

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 6th, 2018

Simple Dietary changes to battle Low T Modern-day society is stealing your Testosterone    Fact: Higher testosterone levels mean more muscle mass, lower body fat, and stronger bones. Additionally, optimum T levels mean healthy libidos, improved cognitive abilities, and (naturally) higher levels of sports performance. Fact: your natural testosterone production is under attack. Here’s a brief list of things that can negatively affect T levels, ranging from dietary/lifestyle choices to environmental factors: Extreme low-calorie diets. Very low-calorie diets used to melt fat or followed by athletes desperate to make weight. Tobacco smoke, both direct and second-hand. Cigarette smoke contains a toxic substance called cadmium, an environmental pollutant with no distinct taste or smell that’s been shown to lower testosterone levels. Alcohol. The body breaks alcohol into acetaldehyde, which may adversely affect the Leydig cells of the testicles to reduce testosterone production. Environmental pollutants, such as those that are common in industrial areas where metal welding, lead, or copper smoke are present. Four Foods to the rescue Luckily, you can improve your testosterone profile through the consumption of some natural nutrients and chemical compounds. Studies have shown that minor nutritional interventions can boost testosterone levels in as little as four weeks.

The Relationship Between Digestive Health and Testosterone Levels

The human body is an intricately designed system — the result of millions upon millions of years of evolution and specialization. The different aspects of the human physiology often interact in surprising ways. For example, digestive health has a strong connection with the expression of Testosterone in men. While it’s long been known that women experience major changes associated with hormonal changes during menopause, men also experience issues related to age-related Hormone Imbalance. The period in a guy’s life when declining Testosterone Levels lead to symptomatic health issues is known as Andropause. What are the Warning Signs of Andropause and … Read more »

The Importance of Dietary Fat for Testosterone Production

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 27th, 2018

It may seem a bit counterintuitive, especially after decades of being told about the dangers of fat, but dietary fat is absolutely necessary for good health, and it’s even essential if you’re looking to lose weight. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was taken for gospel that dietary fat was Enemy Number One when it came to your health and your waistline. In reality, the most prominent issues are processed grains, added sugar, and trans-fats. For optimal testosterone production in your body, 25% of your diet should include healthy fats. Low-Fat diets were the rage, substituting high volumes of salt and carbohydrates for healthy fat. Trans-Fats were sold to the consumer as a healthy alternative to regular fats when in reality, they play a major role in heart disease and other dangerous conditions like obesity and cancer. Today, we’re learning the truth. It’s not fat that is dangerous, but the types of fat we consume and the ratio by which we consume them. Fat is absolutely necessary. It helps maintain hormone balance, and fats are the building blocks of the hormones that allow us to function optimally in our day-to-day lives. A smart combination of protein and healthy fat is

North Dakota ( /?n??r? d??ko?t?/ (  listen); locally [?no??? d??ko???]) is a state in the midwestern and northern regions of the United States. It is the 19th most extensive, but the 4th least populous, and the 4th most sparsely populated of the 50 U.S. states. North Dakota was admitted as the 39th state to the Union on November 2, 1889. The state capital is Bismarck, and the largest city is Fargo. North Dakota weathered the Great Recession of the early 21st century with a boom in natural resources, particularly a boom in oil extraction from the Bakken formation, which lies beneath the northwestern part of the state. The development drove strong job and population growth, and low unemployment. However, falling oil prices have put pressure on state finances, leading to questions about the lack of diversity in the North Dakota economy and its vulnerability to commodity price swings.

The Relationship Between Testosterone and Cortisol

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 26th, 2018

The human body is a complex web of interconnected systems. Hormones are responsible for influencing the way that these systems interact with one another. One category of hormones is known as stress hormones. These hormones are designed to put the body in a state of rapid preparedness and are strongly associated with the fight-or-flight response. One of the most powerful and ubiquitous stress hormones is known as Cortisol. The Function of Cortisol Testosterone is the primary hormone of male virility, and it has a complex relationship with Stress Hormones, notably Cortisol. Historically, humans had to deal with much more dangerous and intimidating situations than we currently have to deal with today. Cortisol is released when the body senses an immediate danger to the self. Cortisol is intended to be released in brief bursts, designed to get humans out of a sticky situation with life and limb. In such a case, Testosterone Levels spike at the same time as Cortisol Levels, helping men have the strength and the rapid response rate necessary to get out of trouble. After the threat has passed, Cortisol levels are supposed to fall. Stress in the Modern World Unfortunately, the modern world and the current human

A Surprising Side Effect of Methadone Treatment: Suppressed Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 26th, 2018

HAMILTON, ON (Aug. 26, 2014) – If you are using methadone to treat opioid addiction, be aware that your natural levels of testosterone may be lowered, according to a recent study by McMaster University. The good news? If you’re a woman, methadone treatment won’t affect you. The bad news? If you’re a man, chances are much greater that it will. The bad news? If you’re a man, chances are much greater that it will. In a paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers say this must be addressed and may result in changes in addiction treatment. The study found that men treated with methadone, used for opioid addiction treatment, have significantly suppressed testosterone levels of about a quarter of the testosterone of men not using opioids. In women using methadone for the same treatment, testosterone levels were insignificantly impacted, even when menstruating. Low testosterone in men has been associated with reduced quality of life as well as erectile dysfunction, fatigue, mood disturbances and depression, weak muscles, osteoporosis, increased joint pain and other problems. “We expect that treating testosterone deficiency will improve outcomes of methadone treatment for patients, including treatment response and retention,” said Dr. Zena Samaan, principal investigator

Five Benefits of Testosterone That You Need to Know

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 26th, 2018

Testosterone. It’s the magic hormone that turns boys into men. It is an essential hormone that all men need to produce to be masculine. High levels of testosterone are associated with masculine features such as body hair, a hoarse voice, and muscles. But that’s far from all that it does. Testosterone delivers some significant health benefits as well. If you want to know why testosterone is healthy for you, consider this: young men are flooded with testosterone. Regrettably, men begin to lose their testosterone supply when they reach the age of 30, and this continues at approximately 10% per decade. Is it merely coincidence that older men have far more health problems than younger ones? Very doubtful. Here are some of the best-known health benefits that men derive from this all-powerful hormone: Boosts red blood cell count. A boost of testosterone helps increase your red blood cell (RBC) count. That is one of the reasons why men have higher levels of RBC and hemoglobin than women. If you are losing a ton of blood, it can be a lifesaver. Adds muscle mass. Check out competitive bodybuilders, or any muscular man. Do you think they are suffering from low levels of

The Testosterone Industry Globally is Booming

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 26th, 2018

Time magazine ran a cover story on “manopause” this week, based on a recent University of Sydney study that found the testosterone industry globally is booming, especially among middle-aged and older men who want to increase longevity and libido, boost energy and “power, passion and performance.” And there’s good reason why    Testosterone is what makes men MEN. Strength, energy, a healthy immune system, pain-free joints, the ability to recuperate from a grueling workout and come back the next day for more, staying sharp mentally, enjoying a great sex life and possessing the capacity to still perform…all of these are directly related to a man’s testosterone level. When we consider all of the benefits that testosterone delivers, it is easy to see why the industry is experiencing such exploding growth. In fact, the question is not why that’s happening. The real question is why every man in the world is not doing something to replenish his testosterone levels, levels that begin to drop off around the age of 30 at a rate of approximately 10% per decade. Across the U.S., as well as the entire world, men are jabbing themselves with needles, wiping on gels, sticking on patches, and inserting

The Effects of Parenthood on Testosterone Levels in Men

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 26th, 2018

Testosterone Levels depend on a wide variety of factors, such as age, activity level, diet, and lifestyle. It turns out that having a child also impacts Free and Total Testosterone. Studies have shown that new fathers tend to have lower Testosterone than their peers. This makes sense from an evolutionary perspective. Humans usually raise children as couples. Elevated Testosterone Levels are associated with a higher sex drive. While kids are young, Testosterone Production drops to encourage the father to focus on his child rather than concentrate on sex.

Male Sexual Dysfunction and How Can it Be Efficiently Treated?

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 17th, 2018

Sexual dysfunction is a real problem for men of all ages, because as we age our hormones decline to different degrees, but some of us are born with low hormone levels. Especially the androgen hormone Testosterone, which is responsible for male sexual characteristics. As men age their testosterone hormone declines and this becomes a serious problem, because our sex drives are strongly linked to testosterone. When we experience testosterone deficiency, we might also notice that erections become weaker and less sustained. Premature Ejaculation: The problems associated with releasing our seminal seed too early or before orgasm, also known as premature ejaculation is often associated with physiological problems. Many men who have this problem have sought treatment from hormone doctors. It has been discovered that men who are deficient in HGH Human Growth Hormone, are unable to sustain long term erections and can sometimes ejaculate to quickly. Men who us HGH injections have discovered they are able to sustain erections longer, and not ejaculate early, but results vary.

Increased Testosterone DOES NOT Cause Prostate Cancer to Spread

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 3rd, 2018

Prostate cancer is the most common tumor in men. The American Cancer Society estimates that 220,800 men will be diagnosed with the disease in 2015. According to standard medical theory, prostate cancer typically turns deadly after tumors stop responding to drugs that block the production of testosterone and its receptors. Therefore, for years urologists have treated prostate cancer by decimating a man’s testosterone levels, a treatment that is formally known as androgen deprivation therapy. Medical school taught that this was “The Holy Grail” of stopping prostate cancer dead in its tracks. A common treatment for prostate cancer is chemical castration, drugs that cut the body’s production of testosterone and related hormones. The fact that this treatment often resulted in hellish side effects was either ignored or rationalized by the depressing mantra of “at least he’s still alive.” So on and on it went. Men were forced to choose between death by the spread of cancer or losing their manhood and all of the horrifying consequences that went with that loss: sexual dysfunction/impotence, hot flashes, joint pain, loss of muscle tone and strength, increased fatigue and a sense of hopeless depression. However, the times are changing A new study shows that

The Role of Testosterone in Women’s Health

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 3rd, 2018

Testosterone is the quintessentially male hormone, intrinsically connected to the ideas of masculinity and virility. Testosterone provides men with a variety of potent benefits. It’s associated with lean muscle mass and reduced body fat. Testosterone and its precursors are the building blocks of sperm, the source of male fertility. Men require Testosterone to be in peak physical and psychological condition. What many (or even most) people don’t recognize is that Testosterone is intrinsically vital to feminine health as well. Both men and women produce Testosterone and Estrogen naturally, though in vastly different quantities. Men produce ten times as much Testosterone as women and only 1/10th as much Estrogen. Dr. Felice Gersh is a gynecologist from Irvine California, the creator of the Integrative Medical Group. Her opinions strongly inform the content of this article. The Effect of Testosterone on Muscle Mass Testosterone is a potent anabolic hormone and is the reason why men put on muscle as quickly as they do, and the reason why men have a lower bodyfat percentage on average compared to women. Even if a boy and girl were treated identically from birth—Fed the same foods, engaging in the same activities, etc.—the onset of puberty would lead

The Effects of Testosterone Therapy on Male Patients — Who Should Use Testosterone?

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 2nd, 2018

For men that suffer from Andropause and Low-T, Bio-Identical Testosterone can be an absolute game-changer. Testosterone Deficiency leads to a whole range of symptoms which impair male wellness and deplete vitality, such as sexual dysfunction, increased body fat, reduced exercise capacity, depression, and more. That doesn’t mean that Testosterone Treatments are for everyone, however. When used when not necessary, Testosterone Patches, Creams, and Injections come with some major risks. What Is Andropause and How Does It Impact Male Health and Virility? Similar to women, men also experience hormonal changes as a result of aging. Unlike women, which experience Menopause suddenly and rather abruptly, Andropause (the term for male menopause, also nicknamed Manopause) occurs slowly and gradually. The testes and adrenal glands produce high levels of Testosterone throughout adolescence and early adulthood, and Testosterone Levels fall into a state of depletion around the age of thirty. The decline is very slow, only around 1-2% annually, but over the course of years and decades, Testosterone Levels can drop to a level which is no longer conducive to health and masculinity.

Testosterone Promotes Bone Health and Can Help Treat Osteoporosis

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 1st, 2018

Testosterone Replacement Therapy provides a wide variety of benefits to aging men suffering from the effects of Andropause. Many of these benefits are well-known, especially those related to body composition, mood, and sexual appetite. There are many obscure benefits to Low-T Treatment, one of which is improved Bone Mineral Density. Dr. Robert Ashley has worked with patients suffering from Low-T and Osteoporosis for years. He explains that research has shown that Bio-Identical Testosterone Therapy for Andropause not only improves sexual desire and libido while increasing energy and helping patients lose weight, but also has positive effects on bone health. Should Men Worry About Osteoporosis? It’s widely known that women are at an elevated risk of Osteoporosis compared to men. This is because Testosterone has anabolic effects on the skeletal structure. Testosterone promotes bone recycling, which helps preserve bone mineral density. Specifically, Testosterone encourages Osteoblast activity, which are cells which are designed to fortify bone with recycled minerals. Just because women are at elevated risk for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis doesn’t mean that men are safe, however. Testosterone Deficiency causes an imbalance in the pattern of bone recycling, favoring Osteoclast activity. Osteoclasts are cells designed to break down bone tissue for recycling.

Testosterone DOES NOT Cause Atherosclerosis (Hardening of the Arteries) in Older Men

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 31st, 2018

Unless you have been imitating Rip Van Winkle for several years, you are aware that Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has exploded in the last decade. However, there have been very few studies that have examined the long-term effects of taking testosterone on cardiovascular health and other vital functions concerning the health effects on men receiving the treatment. But that has changed. Recently, investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) report the results of the Testosterone’s Effects on Atherosclerosis Progression in Aging Men (TEAAM) trial in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The three-year study finds that testosterone administration had no effect on the progression of hardening of the arteries in older men with low to low-normal testosterone levels and did not significantly improve sexual function or health-related quality of life. Shehzad Basaria, M.B.B.S., MD, from Harvard Medical School in Boston, and colleagues studied the effect of testosterone administration on atherosclerosis progression in older men. Three hundred eight men aged 60 years or older (patients had a mean age of 67.6 years), with low or low-normal testosterone levels, volunteered and were treated with up to 7.5 g of 1 percent testosterone (156 men) or placebo gel packets (152 men)

Amygdala and it’s Relationship to Testosterone and Fear

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 31st, 2018

The amygdala is the center of emotional activity in the brain, but recent studies have shown that it’s powered by motivation rather than the emotions themselves. This conclusion came from research into the hormone testosterone. Testosterone ramps up amygdala activity when we approach a socially dangerous situation and lessens the activity when these situations are avoided. It was a known fact that the amygdala reaction to images of angry faces was more intense in someone who had received testosterone. This new study shows that this only happens when people approach angry faces and not when they avoid them. Testosterone or placebo In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 54 young healthy women were given 0.5 mg of testosterone (or a placebo) four hours before a brain scan. This amount is a far lower dose than used for a sex change treatment, or as a supplement for athletes, but it is enough to have a measurable effect on brain activity. Happy or angry While in the MRI-scanner, the participants were shown photos of happy and angry faces and were asked to give a sign of rejection (avoiding) or approach (moving towards). People usually have less of a problem approaching someone who looks friendly

Oral Testosterone Pill Could Make Lipocine’s Share Price SKYROCKET

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 31st, 2018

Lipocine Inc. (LPCN) may have a huge hit on its hands with the first swallow-able oral testosterone treatment. Oral testosterone could revolutionize the testosterone market because users usually have to inject themselves or use a gel that absorbs through their skin. The problem with these two delivery methods is that they are inconvenient and may transfer to women and children. These issues may deter potential users. The investment firm Canaccord Genuity sees a significant upside here. The company’s Corey Davis and Lidia Liu initiated coverage of Lipocine with a Buy rating and assigned it a $15.00 price target. If the firm is correct in its assessment, then Lipocine shares could rise more than 80% if the outcome expectations live up the scenario outlined in this analyst call. The way the firm arrived at the target price of $15.00 was a discounted price-to-earnings (P/E) valuation, applying a multiple of 20 to the 2021 earnings per share target $2.06, and then cut by 20% for five and a half years. The potential risks to this analysis include failure to gain FDA approval, to find a partner or to sell the company. Canaccord Genuity’s analyst Corey Davis said: “Lipocine is on the verge

The Importance of Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) for Healthy Testosterone Levels

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 31st, 2018

Hormone Balance is the key to maintaining and facilitating optimal wellness. The way that our hormones work is highly complex. When we discuss Testosterone, Estrogen, or Human Growth Hormone Production, this is actually a short-hand for an entire branch of highly-interconnected processes which lead to the production of a vital hormone. Hormone Replacement Therapy tends to revolve around the replacement of the key hormone which provides the broadest range of benefits. For example, HGH and Testosterone are both further processed into metabolites which provide the full range of benefits associated with the hormones. The goal of this article is to explain the role of Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) in the function and utilization of Testosterone. How Does the Body Make Testosterone? Sex Hormone Production begins in the hypothalamus—the control center of the brain. The Hypothalamus receives signals from the body to produce Testosterone or Estrogen, and sex hormone precursors are released. Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone is issued by the Hypothalamus, where it then travels to the Pituitary. The Pituitary Gland responds to this stimulation by releasing Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, which then travel to the sex organs, promoting normal function in both men and women. For men, Testosterone Production is triggered

Testosterone Therapy Helps Men with Low-T Ward Off Prostate Cancer

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 31st, 2018

As Bio-Identical Testosterone Treatments become more widely offered by Hormone Specialists across the United States, a great debate has been waging over the long-term safety of Testosterone Replacement Therapy. It is undeniable that Testosterone Creams, Patches, and Injections provide some real benefits that significantly improve the quality of life of patients. For example, Low-T Therapy enhances energy levels, body composition, libido, and psychological wellness in patients suffering from Hypogonadism. Risks of Testosterone Therapy On the other hand, there has always been the fear that Testosterone Therapy can have long-term consequences, especially in the areas of heart health and prostate health. This concern and the widespread use of Recombinant Testosterone Therapy has led to a veritable explosion of Testosterone Research since the turn of the century. Testosterone and Cardiovascular Health Prior research showed that Testosterone Treatments could negatively impact heart health, increasing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and atherosclerosis. Fortunately, as the body of research has developed and HRT Therapy Techniques have advanced, it appears that this risk is vastly overstated when Testosterone is prescribed and used as directed.

The Best Areas to Intramuscularly Self-Inject Testosterone

The Best Areas to Intramuscularly Self-Inject Testosterone Testosterone injection is done intramuscularly.

They are also needed when the injection of the drug is too uncomfortable to be administered subcutaneously.

Things You Might Not Have Known About Testosterone

The male hormone evolved 500 million years ago from estrogen. 1. Both genders have testosterone circulating in their bloodstream, although women have far less.

Natural, Simple Ways to Improve Your Sleeping Habits

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 11th, 2018

One of the most common causes of Testosterone Deficiency in men that have not yet experienced Andropause is poor sleeping habits. In order for your body to produce the Testosterone that it needs to amplify your day-to-day health, you need 7-9 hours of restful sleep per night, but too many men don’t get enough. Across the United States, there are nine million men and women that take prescription medications to help them sleep. Healthy sleep is also necessary for your body to adequately produce Human Growth Hormone, which is produced primarily during sleep and helps to promote cellular metabolism and healing processes. Unfortunately, often, these sleeping pills produce side-effects in many patients, and for many, the products are simply not effective. Because of the potential risks associated with many sleep aids, including the potential risk for abuse, many health professionals feel that these medications should only be used short-term, in order to help restore healthier sleeping habits. Of course, even if you aren’t interested in using a prescription treatment, you should still see a medical professional if you are experiencing a major sleep disorder, such as insomnia. There are a lot of ways to effectively treat such conditions without turning

That just isn’t always the case, however, and it’s especially true with Testosterone. To protect and preserve your wellness, it’s only necessary to have Testosterone Levels in the normal range. Still, men across the globe are turning to OTC Testosterone Supplements that purport to boost Testosterone Levels sky-high, presumably to help men feel stronger and sexier. Our Hormone Clinic does not recommend that men artificially increase their Testosterone Levels above the normal range. This vastly increases … Read more »

Male Contraceptive on the Horizon? Reducing Fertility By Suppressing Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on March 26th, 2018

Though female contraception has been an option for generations, there still are no options available for men to artificially suppress fertility. Of course, condoms are available, but the success rate for condoms does leave something to be desired. Condoms are only around 85% effective per year. Vasectomies are an option, but the intensiveness of the procedure turns many men off. In coming years, it is expected that an HRT Option for male contraception will become available. There are some research facilities that are working to create a new male form of contraception, primarily modeled after the Birth Control Pills used … Read more »

Acidosis: The Hidden Health Destroyer

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on December 12th, 2017

  Acidosis: The Hidden Health Destroyer Your Most Important AND Little Known Measure of Good Health What is the most important thing you should focus on for good health?Hint: it’s not your weight…or your BMI…or your cholesterol…or your triglycerides…or even your blood pressure. Without a doubt, these numbers are important. But there is one number that tells you more than these about your health, and you need to be aware of it to ward off disease and live pain-free: Your Blood pH Level The measure of acidity or alkaline in the body is potential hydrogen, or pH, which is expressed in a number between 0 and 14, and is usually measured through blood testing. A reading of 0 is pure acid, 7 is neutral, and 14 is pure alkaline. Without exception, all of your organs, bones, tissues and joints function at their best when your blood pH is slightly alkaline, which is around 7.35. Here’s a brief look at the science behind acidosis The stomach has a normal pH measure of approximately 4.0. Consuming high pH alkaline water causes the stomach pH to rise. When the stomach pH rises above 4.5, the stomach produces more hydrochloric acid. Here is the

With testosterone, it’s ‘my way or the highway’: UK study – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on February 11th, 2017

Testosterone can skew one’s judgment, creating the impression that decisions are best taken alone even in situations that call for collaboration, according to a study released Wednesday. In a clever set of experiments, scientists led by Nicholas Wright at the University of London showed that women given a dose of testosterone become less inclined to act in concert even when it was clearly in their interest to do so. Finding the right balance between working together and going solo-and knowing when to do one or the other-is an essential life skill. In some circumstances, joining forces with others is the best way to achieve a desired result: that’s why lions and hyenas hunt in packs, and why humans cooperate on the playing field, in the laboratory, or in battle. Sometimes, however, decisive individual action is needed to break free of group-think, or to come out ahead of the game. To a significant extent, our ability to navigate between these two extremes is acquired through learning and experience, but some of these impulses are hardwired too. Earlier research, for example, on the biological underpinnings of group decision making revealed that a naturally-occurring hormone, oxytocin, promotes the urge to work side-by-side. At

Too much testosterone makes for bad decisions, tests show – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on February 4th, 2017

DICK AHLSTROM, Science Editor IT CAN happen in juries and local groups, in Dáil committees and company board rooms. Too much testosterone can thwart good decision-making. People have long blamed the male hormone for damaging group dynamic and now University College London researchers have proven this to be true.   Toss in some excess testosterone and co-operation tends to go out the window. Dr Mark Wright and colleagues at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL tested the impact of testosterone on the levels of co-operative decision-making accomplished by groups. They publish their findings this morning in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B . Other experiments had already shown that subjects given the female hormone oxytocin tended to be more co-operative. The university team wanted to see whether testosterone could produce the opposite effect, Dr Wright said. Men already have high levels of the hormone and if extra is given it will quickly be broken down. For this reason only women were used as subjects, Dr Wright said. Supplements were given to elevate their testosterone levels temporarily and the women conducted a series of tests to measure levels of co-operation. Dr Wright used 17 pairs of female volunteers

The Secret to Guys’ Sex Appeal: Low Stress, High Testosterone, Strong Immunity – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on January 28th, 2017

  Washboard abs and a chiseled jaw are a draw, but a recent study suggests it may be a man’s healthy immune system that really turns women on. That makes sense, since a strong immune system signifies a healthy guy – one who’s likely to survive long enough to pass his rugged genes to the next generation. But the more surprising thing is that women can apparently spot good immunity by looking at a guy’s face. The key factor may be testosterone, the male hormone that has been associated with a man’s hardy good looks. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, testosterone levels are not only linked with facial attractiveness, but also with a strong immune system response.

Testosterone, Viagra not a winning combination for erectile dysfunction – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on January 21st, 2017

Using a testosterone gel in addition to Viagra doesn’t make the little blue pill work any better, according to a new study.

The report’s lead researcher said testosterone is typically prescribed to men who have both low testosterone levels and symptoms such as little interest in sex or low bone and muscle mass.

But, “there’s a tremendous amount of clinical judgment” that goes into that, said Dr. Matthew Spitzer, from the Boston University School of Medicine. “People are certainly being prescribed and using these medications at increasing amounts.”

According to Spitzer, studies have suggested that about one-quarter to one-third of men with erectile dysfunction, or ED, also have low testosterone. There’s a range in part because doctors and researchers don’t all agree on where the cutoff should be for low levels of the male sex hormone.

Spitzer and his colleagues found that a starting course of sildenafil citrate, marketed as Viagra, helped improve sexual functioning for men with both conditions. But adding testosterone on top of that didn’t provide any added sexual benefits.

The study included 140 men, aged 40 to 70. All were prescribed Viagra at 50 or 100 milligrams, which they took as needed before sex. After three to seven weeks, half of the men were randomly assigned to also use a daily testosterone gel, Testim, and the other half used a drug-free placebo gel.

During the Viagra-only portion of the study, men’s erectile function scores improved. On the sexual functioning scale, a score of 11-16 is considered “moderate” erectile dysfunction and 17-21 is “mild to moderate” dysfunction. The highest possible score, signaling no erectile problems, is a 30. On average, men’s scores increased from 12.1 to 19.8 with Viagra.

The men’s testosterone levels also rose on Viagra, according to the findings published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

For men who were then given the testosterone gel, testosterone levels increased significantly again. But neither those men nor the ones who used the placebo gel had any further change in their erectile function over the next three months.

There was also no difference between the two groups on measures of sexual desire, orgasm and frequency of intercourse.

Testosterone therapy — good idea or not? – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on January 14th, 2017

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, or under a rock, you’ve surely heard the term “Low-T” or seen an advertisement talking about how testosterone declines as men age and how the solution is undergoing testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). It promises an incredible allure: increased libido more muscle mass and strength, exploding energy levels to what they were in your youth, and a host of others. But is that the entire story Does it come with health risks Each birthday after 30 means a drop in testosterone levels by approximately 1%, and therefore 10% each decade. Do the math. By age 60 your testosterone levels will be about 30 percent lower than what they were when you were a young man. And, if you are able to live until age 80, you now have 50% of your youthful levels of the powerful masculine hormone. Congratulations! You’re now, in many ways, ½ a man. You’ve heard of menopause for women Andropause is what men experience…a natural, slow decline in testosterone levels. Sometimes, the decrease is fast, causing legitimate concerns.

Testosterone shown to help sexually frustrated women- Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on January 7th, 2017

Several weeks ago my column, Do you want better sex? struck a resounding note not only with female readers but also with many husbands who want their wives to have fewer headaches. The general response was, Please write more about testosterone and how it can increase female libido. Testosterone, the male hormone, has been called the hormone of desire. In males the Big T builds muscle for boys and ultimately turns boys into sexually well-functioning men. Women also produce testosterone during puberty, but only about one-tenth as much as males. Later in life they produce less, and this is why some authorities believe women lose interest in sex. How do women know if they have less testosterone and therefore less tiger in the tank? Theres a good chance testosterone is lacking if they complain of little sexual desire, lack of energy, loss of height, decreased enjoyment in life, are sad or grumpy, fall asleep after meals and produce inadequate work performance. If the answer is yes to four of these conditions, there may not be enough big T. Women may lack this hormone for several reasons. In North America 700,000 hysterectomies are done every year.

Testosterone replacement therapy improves symptoms of metabolic syndrome – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on December 31st, 2016

Hormone-replacement therapy significantly improved symptoms of metabolic syndrome associated with testosterone deficiency in men, a new study from Germany finds. The results will be presented Monday at The Endocrine Society’s 94th Annual Meeting in Houston. Metabolic syndrome comprises a cluster of complications that can increase the risk of heart and blood-vessel disease as well as type 2 diabetes. These complications include excess body weight, especially around the waist and torso, and abnormal concentrations of fat in the blood, known as lipids. In particular, patients with metabolic syndrome have high blood levels of the so-called bad fats, or triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins, and insufficient amounts of the healthy fats known as high-density lipoproteins. In addition, they often have high blood pressure and sugar, or glucose, levels. Previous research has linked metabolic syndrome to testosterone deficiency, which can cause decreased muscle and bone mass, depression, low energy, and decreased sex drive and ability. In addition, testosterone deficiency is also associated with the individual symptoms of metabolic syndrome, even when they are present without the other complications. “When indicated, testosterone treatment is both essential and safe in elderly patients with symptomatic late onset hypogonadism, or testosterone deficiency,” said study lead author Aksam A.

Testosterone reduces group think, cooperation, and less sheep-like mentality

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on December 24th, 2016

ScienceDaily (Jan. 31, 2012) – Testosterone makes us overvalue our own opinions at the expense of cooperation, research from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL (University College London) has found. The findings may have implications for how group decisions are affected by dominant individuals.

Problem solving in groups can provide benefits over individual decisions as we are able to share our information and expertise. However, there is a tension between cooperation and self-orientated behaviour: although groups might benefit from a collective intelligence, collaborating too closely can lead to an uncritical groupthink, ending in decisions that are bad for all.

Attempts to understand the biological mechanisms behind group decision making have tended to focus on the factors that promote cooperation, and research has shown that people given a boost of the hormone oxytocin tend to be cooperative. Now, in a study recently published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, researchers have shown that the hormone testosterone has the opposite effect – it makes people act less cooperatively and more egocentrically.

Dr Nick Wright and colleagues at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL carried out a series of tests using 17 pairs of female volunteers* who had previously never met. The test took place over two days, spaced a week apart. On one of the days, both volunteers in each pair were given a testosterone supplement; on the other day, they were given a placebo.

During the experiment, both women sat in the same room and viewed their own screen. Both individuals saw exactly the same thing. First, in each trial they were shown two images, one of which contained a high-contrast target – and their job was to decide individually which image contained the target.

If their individual choices agreed, they received feedback and moved on to the next trial. However, if they disagreed, they were asked to collaborate and discuss with their partner to reach a joint decision. One of the pair then input this joint decision.

The researchers found that, as expected, cooperation enabled the group to perform much better than the individuals alone when individuals had received only the placebo. But, when given a testosterone supplement, the benefit of cooperation was markedly reduced. In fact, higher levels of testosterone were associated with individuals behaving egocentrically and deciding in favour of their own selection over their partner’s.

“When we are making decisions in groups, we tread a fine line between cooperation and self-interest: too much cooperation and we may never get our way, but if we are too self-orientated, we are likely to ignore people who have real insight,” explains Dr Wright.

“Our behaviour seems to be moderated by our hormones – we already know that oxytocin can make us more cooperative, but if this were the only hormone acting on our decision-making in groups, this would make our decisions very skewed. We have shown that, in fact, testosterone also affects our decisions, by making us more egotistical.

“Most of the time, this allows us to seek the best solution to a problem, but sometimes, too much testosterone can help blind us to other people’s views. This can be very significant when we are talking about a dominant individual trying to assert his or her opinion in, say, a jury.”

Testosterone is implicated in a variety of social behaviours. For example, in chimpanzees, levels of testosterone rise ahead of a confrontation or a fight. In female prisoners, studies have found that higher levels of testosterone correlate with increased antisocial behaviour and higher aggression. Researchers believe that such findings reflect a more general role for testosterone in increasing the motivation to dominate others and increase egocentricity.

Commenting on the findings, Dr John Williams, Head of Neuroscience and Mental Health at the Trust, said: “Cooperating with others has obvious advantages for sharing skills and experience, but we know it doesn’t always work, particularly if one alpha male or alpha female dominates the decision making. This result helps us understand at a hormonal level the factors that can disrupt our attempts to work together.”

The Wellcome Trust funded this study.

*Testosterone is naturally secreted in men and women, and testosterone levels are correlated with important behaviours (e.g. antisocial behaviour) in both men and women. For the size of dose given experimentally, in women this markedly increases their testosterone from its low baseline level. In men, however, the situation is more complicated: men already have high baseline levels of testosterone, so giving such doses will decrease their own production of testosterone, a feedback effect that will act to offset the increase caused by the treatment itself. The researchers therefore used female subjects because giving standard experimental doses causes a straightforward and well-characterised increase in their testosterone levels.

Testosterone linked to heart disease – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on December 17th, 2016

Scientists say they now have new evidence about why women live longer than men, from a study of historical data showing castrated Koreans far outlived their non-eunuch contemporaries.

The study, published in the scientific journal Current Biology, used detailed genealogical records of the Imperial nobility during Koreas Joseon dynasty, which spanned more than 500 years from the late 1300s to the early 1900s.

According to the data, most men, including kings and royal family members, died in their late-40s or early-50s. But noble-class eunuchs men who were castrated either by accident or because of social benefits lived, on average, to the ripe, old age of 70.

Study author Kyung-Jin Min of South Koreas Inha University, told AFP the reason is probably that manly hormone, testosterone:

Testosterone is known to increase the incidence of coronary heart disease and reduce immune function in males, he said.

Castration removes the source of male sex hormones, the study notes, adding the practice has already been proven to help many male animals live longer. Castration also cuts off the possibility of reproduction, which Kyung-Jin noted could also be a factor. According to one of the leading theories of aging, aging occurs at the expense of reproduction, he said, because the body has limited energy that can be used either to keep up reproductive function, or else to keep up everything else.

But although the eunuchs could not father children biologically, they married, adopted and raised children, and generally lived lives very similar to their non-castrated peers.

In order to eliminate socioeconomic factors that could have affected lifespan, the lifespan of the eunuchs was compared to the lifespan of men from other Yan-ban (noble class) families with a similar socioeconomic status, Kyung-Jin said.

London, Feb 3 (IANS) Testosterone drives egocentricism at the cost of cooperating with others, consequently affecting group decisions, a study reveals.

Collective problem solving can provide benefits over individual decisions as we are able to share our information and experiences, said a new study from Wellcome Trust’s Centre for Neuroimaging at the University College London.

Now researchers have shown that the testosterone has the opposite effect – it makes people act less cooperative and more egocentric, the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B reported.

Researcher Nick Wright and colleagues at the Centre for Neuroimaging carried out a series of tests using 17 pairs of female volunteers who had previously never met. The test took place over two days, spaced a week apart, a university statement said.

“When we are making decisions in groups, we tread a fine line between cooperation and self-interest: too much cooperation and we may never get our way, but if we are too self-orientated, we are likely to ignore people who have real insight,” explained Wright.

On one of the days, both volunteers in each pair were given a testosterone supplement; on the other day, they were given a placebo.

Researchers found that as expected, cooperation enabled the group to perform much better than the individuals alone when individuals had received only the placebo. But, when given a testosterone supplement, the benefit of cooperation was markedly reduced.

In fact, higher levels of testosterone were associated with individuals behaving egocentrically and deciding in favor of their own selection over their partner’s.

Men with higher testosterone tend to lie less, study suggests

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on December 3rd, 2016

A new study suggests that men with more testosterone tend to lie less than those with low testosterone.

Researchers in Germany found that those who were given testosterone before the study told less lies than those who did not receive the shot.

An earlier study has already linked testosterone with risky financial behavior.

“Testosterone has always been said to promote aggressive and risky behavior and posturing,” said Bernard Weber, a neuroscientist from the Center for Economics and Neuroscience in Bonn, according to the Irish Independent.

The study gave 46 participants extra testosterone while 45 others were given a placebo.

They were then given a game to play which allowed for the easy possibility of lying in order to earn money.

Those with higher testosterone, it was shown, lied less frequently.

“Test subjects with the higher testosterone levels had clearly lied less frequently than untreated test subjects,” said co-author Armin Falk, according to Cordis.

“This result clearly contradicts the one-dimensional approach that testosterone results in anti-social behavior.”

Low testosterone levels cause health woes – Testosterone Prescription

On screen, he plays a crimebusting officer, leading a crack team of elite men and women from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, in the TV series Point Of Entry.

But in reality, actor Bernard Tan has suffered for nearly three years from fatigue and a lack of motivation to go about his daily activities – including acting.

“Initially, I thought I was overworked and that I should sleep more. Even after getting enough rest, I still felt that way,” the 49-year-old bachelor said yesterday.

But a pamphlet he came across in a clinic recently made him realise that he could be suffering from hypogonadism – or testosterone deficiency syndrome.

“I actually took the pamphlet because I wanted to get the same hairstyle as the male model featured on it,” he quipped during a media briefing at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel yesterday.

In the end, he did not get the hairstyle as his hairstylist told him that his hair would have to be damaged in order to achieve the look.

But he did find out what was wrong when he went through a checklist on the pamphlet, which was on hypogonadism.

“I realised that I answered ‘yes’ to seven of the 10 questions on it,” he explained.

He decided to seek treatment for the condition, which typically affects men aged 45 years and older. About one in four men in that age group here has some degree of testosterone deficiency, said medical experts.

Increase in testosterone drug use – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on November 19th, 2016

June 04, 2012

A sharp uptake in testosterone products by Australian men has been blamed on ‘disease mongering’ by pharmaceutical companies.

Testosterone product use jumped 115 per cent from about 29,000 products dispensed in 2005 to 62,000 in 2010 following the marketing of a new gel, according to Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme statistics.

Pharmaceutical companies marketing testosterone products in both Australia and Canada found ways to skirt advertising laws by warning that symptoms including low energy, low sex drive and even falling asleep after dinner could be due to low testosterone levels, researchers said.

Advertisements by two companies which ran in Australia and Canada in the past four years encouraged men with the symptoms to see their doctor for a testosterone test and ask about new treatments.

Australian and Canadian researchers said low testosterone was an unlikely cause of these symptoms.

Testosterone treatment has not been shown to improve libido and sexual function, depression and cognitive function, or quality of life in men with age-related testosterone loss,’ Agnes Vitry from the University of South Australia and Barbara Mintzes from the University of British Columbia in Canada said.

The researchers said testosterone therapy could expose men to many unwanted adverse effects, including progression to subclinical prostate cancer.

A recent study of testosterone replacement in older men was stopped early because of increased rates of adverse cardiovascular events, the authors wrote in the Medical Journal of Australia on Monday.

The authors said the advertisements which ran in national newspapers were classic examples of ‘disease mongering’.

The researchers argued that unbranded product advertising or ‘pseudo-branding’ should be discouraged through tougher penalties.

Five Myths About Low Testosterone And Testosterone Therapy – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on November 12th, 2016

  The prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) has men of all ages seeking the most effective treatment. In recent years, low testosterone is the scapegoat for a growing number of male sexuality issues, including low sex drive and impotence. Testosterone therapy may be easy, but top penile implant surgeon, Dr. J. Francois Eid, cautions that the fallout is an abundance of men unnecessarily “addicted” to hormone replacement therapy. “Testosterone replacement therapy arrests the body’s natural production of testosterone. The treatment is now showing striking similarities to past problems with hormone replacement for women,” explains Dr. Eid, innovator of the No Touch Technique for penile implant and penile prosthesis surgery. “Surgery isn’t the answer for everyone, but neither is testosterone. Accurate diagnosis of ED symptoms is critical,” he says. “Very few men have abnormal (low) testosterone. We have to explore ED causes before assuming low testosterone to be the reason.” Testosterone is responsible for many a manly attribute, but Dr. Eid answers the five most common myths about “Low T” treatment. Myth #1: My erection problems are caused by low testosterone. Truth: The ability to achieve and sustain a normal erection does not require a normal testosterone level. Increasing testosterone level

Environment trumps genes in testosterone levels, study finds – Testosterone Prescription

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on November 5th, 2016

MONTREAL Boys will be boys, as the adage goes, with their rough-and-tumble boisterous play so stereotypically male.

Is it the doings of a primary sex hormone called testosterone, long associated with social dominance, virility and strength?

Many scientists have explored the role of hormones and conduct, whether in school playgrounds, sports, war or bedrooms.

Now a Universite de Montreal study of five-month old twins is among the first to tease out the contribution of genetic and environmental factors to circulating levels of this chemical.

The research with infant twins suggests that the environment plays a greater role than genes when it comes to testosterone levels.

Studies in human and animal models over the past 50 years have confirmed an association between aggression, dominance and testosterone in adolescence, said lead author Richard Tremblay of UdeM’s research unit on children’s psychosocial maladjustment.

“The question is, when does that association startu” asked Tremblay, whose team looked at newborn babies of both sexes.

Published in the online edition of Psychoneuroendocrinology, the study compared testosterone in saliva samples from a total of 314 infants identical twins with non-identical twins. Identical pairs share the same genes, while fraternal twins are like any siblings and share 50 per cent of their genes.

“So if testosterone levels are genetically determined, then the identical twins would be more alike than the fraternal twins,” Tremblay explained.

Researchers found that testosterone levels in infancy are not inherited genetically but rather are affected by environmental factors. Read more »

There is some positive news about marriage. Researchers from the University of Adelaide in Australia have found that drops in testosterone levels in men are not necessarily just a consequence of age but are also products of lifestyle and behavior. Presented at the Endocrine Society’s 94th Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas, the study revealed that being obese, whether or not a man smoked and was depressed were all linked with significant drops in testosterone. Another interesting statistic showed that men who were not married had much more significant drops in their testosterone levels than their married counterparts. To obtain their … Read more »

Co-sleeping with baby drops men’s testosterone levels

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on October 22nd, 2016

September 10, 2012

MANILA, Sept 10 A new study shows that its not only womens bodies that adapt to parenthood: fathers who sleep next to their tot show dips in their levels of testosterone, which researchers say is good for baby.

In prior researcher, study author Gettler (currently of the University of Notre Dame in the US state of Indiana) and his colleagues found that when men become fathers, their testosterone levels drop and the more involved dads were in caring for their children, the bigger their drops in the hormone.

A new study suggests that mens bodies make adjustments in order to better adapt to child rearing. AFP/Relaxnews

After taking saliva samples before and after sleep, they found those who shared a bed with junior had dips in their testosterone levels in the evening. The researchers also took testosterone samples in 2005 and 2009 and they found that dads who dozed next to their child had a third less testosterone than before, compared to dads who slept separately.

While high testosterone levels have been linked to aggression, extroversion, and risk-taking, lower testosterone levels are good for parenthood. Drops in testosterone have been linked to fathers responsiveness to their children, wrote the studys authors.

The researchers arent sure that sleeping next to the baby actually causes the decline in testosterone, and that more work needs to be done. But research also shows that disruptions in a mans sleep a babys cry, for example are known to cut testosterone production, said the researchers.

Bed sharing is seen as a controversial practice in some countries due to infant safety but in the study, even dads sleeping in the same room with their children showed lower testosterone levels than men who slept separately.

Though the study is by no means conclusive (nor are researchers entirely sure their work applies to dads outside of the Philippines), blogger Jezebel writes, it does suggest that our traditional concept of arm-wrestling, water-buffalo-tackling masculinity is in for a thorough evolutionary biology revision.

The top ten testosterone booster supplements: A review

Written by Dr. Stevenson, Published on October 8th, 2016

     Testosterone. For males, this is the magic hormone. As a young boy enters puberty, testosterone begins to flood his system. By his mid-teens, it is becoming a floodgate, and keeps flowing throughout his twenties. Why is testosterone so important? Because it makes men MEN. From burning fat to building muscle, from having youthful energy to boosting your brainpower, from having unbreakable will power to exuding confidence, testosterone is the key. Most men don’t pay too much attention to testosterone when they are young. After all, why should they. It is so easy to take it for granted, since the supply is seemingly endless. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has other plans That’s correct. Beginning at approximately age thirty, men begin to lose testosterone. By most estimates, the decline of free testosterone in the blood levels drops off by around 10% per year. Do the math. By the time a man has reached eighty, he is lucky to have one-half of the testosterone levels that he did fifty years ago. And the consequences aren’t pretty Weakened muscles…a precipitous drop in stamina and endurance…increasing aches and pains…brain fog…brittle bones…worn-out glands…thinning, wrinkled skin…diminished sex life…it sounds like a parade from the depths of

  The Effects of Hypogonadism on Men Learn more about the causes and cures of this ever-increasing problem    Your physician enters the room with a somber demeanor and announces “Your blood tests are back, and it’s confirmed: you have hypogonadism”.    The response of many men to this somewhat confusing pronouncement is often: “what’s thatu” The medical, professional, clinical definition of hypogonadism is: the reduction or absence of hormone secretion or other physiological activity of the gonads (testes).The Endocrine Society practice guideline has a similar definition: Hypogonadism in men is a clinical syndrome that results from failure of the testis to produce physiological levels of testosterone (thus androgen deficiency) and a normal number of spermatozoa due to disruption of one or more levels of the hypothalamic-pituitary testicular axis.    In plain English, this means decreased production of the important male hormones that make men men…especially testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). This condition is sometimes given the moniker “low t”.    Then more depressing news follows. All-too-often, older men are told that their condition is specifically called Age-Associated Hypogonadism, sometimes referred to as Late-onset hypogonadism. At around age 31, a man’s levels of growth hormone and testosterone begin to decline at

Low-T and Your Health

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 25th, 2015

Low-T and Your Health How Does the Body Produce Testosterone? The production of Testosterone is the result of a cascade of hormone signals, with a cycle beginning at the hypothalamus. When the hypothalamus receives the signal to produce Testosterone, it releases a hormone known as Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone, usually referred to in scientific literature as GnRH. In both sexes, GnRH travels through the Hypophyseal Portal System from the Hypothalamus to the Pituitary, where it stimulates the production of two important hormones: Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). From here, the sex hormone cycle differs for both sexes. In women, Follicle Stimulating Hormone prepares for the release of an egg by stimulating the production of fluid pouches known as follicles which store the developed egg in preparation for fertilization. Luteinizing Hormone, on the other hand, encourages ovulation. In men, on the other hand, the two hormones are associated with the production of Testosterone and Sperm. Luteinizing Hormone travels to the testes, where it activates cells known at Leydig Cells that are responsible for the production of Testosterone. Follicle-Stimulating Hormone travels to Sertoli Cells in the Testes, which encourage the production of sperm. Some Testosterone that is produced by the testes

Ten Ways to Enhance Your Metabolism

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 22nd, 2015

One of the keys to losing weight is to take steps to rev up your metabolism. There are a number of ways to achieve this, and burn calories faster and more efficiently. Allow us to provide some tips! Build Muscle to Increase Metabolism One of the best ways to increase your metabolism is to increase your muscle mass. Basal Metabolic Rate refers to how many calories that your body ambiently burns while you are at rest. Muscle burns more calories per hour than any other form of tissue, and the more muscle mass that you have, the higher that your basic metabolism will be. Fat is a storage mechanism, and does not burn as many calories. Each pound of body fat you have will burn two calories on its own each day. Muscle, on the other hand, will burn six calories daily. On top of this, when you work out your muscles, they burn even more calories, and after a good anaerobic workout, all activated muscles will burn calories more quickly. High Intensity Cardio for Increased Metabolism Aerobic activity is also a fantastic way to increase your metabolism. High-Intensity Interval Training is a form of exercise in which you engage

Testosterone and Hormone Deficiency Associated with Physiological Decline in Elderly Men It has long been known that Low-T affects male sexual health in a profound way, leading to sexual insufficiency as well as reduced libido. There is also a growing understanding with regard to how Testosterone affects male masculinity and physiological health. There is a large push in the medical literature right now to scientifically evaluate how Testosterone Deficiency affects geriatric health and wellness. Australian Elderly Low-T Study A recent study was published by Australian researchers and presented at the 16th Annual International Congress of Endocrinology. With this study, researchers presented strong evidence that geriatric men with Low-T or other forms of sex-hormone deficiency experienced double the risk of experiencing physiological decline over the course of a two year period when compared to men of the same age with comparatively high sex hormone levels. The lead researcher for this Elderly Low-T Study was Benjamin Hsu, a representive of the University of Sydney Australia. He and his research partners collected medical and health information from over 1300 men all at least seventy years of age, which received health exams between the years of 2005 and 2007, which also received a second

Pretty much everyone understands these days that Testosterone is a major aspect of weightlifting and bodybuilding, and the reason why men can build muscles more quickly and build more muscle than women. For that reason, it should come to little surprise that the use of alcohol, most notably, overindulgence and abuse of alcohol, can inhibit the body’s ability to build and preserve muscle mass, reducing your ability and chances to maintain your ideal male physique. How Does Alcohol Interfere with Healthy Muscles? For men looking to maintain athletic performance or maintain a fit figure, alcohol can cause a lot of problems when drank to excess. Three major ways that alcohol disrupts the normal function of the body with regard to bodybuilding and athletic performance are rebuilding, recovery, and performance. Though the buzz dissipates in a matter of hours, the physiological hangover of alcohol can persist for a couple of days. In fact, athletes are suggested not to drink heavily in the 2 days before they are set to perform, because the body can take that long to fully process the alcohol out of the body.

Testosterone Deficiency Strongly Linked to Heart Attack Risk in New Study

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 15th, 2015

There has been a lot of debate over the last decade regarding the effects of both Low-T and Testosterone Deficiency on the heart. Depending on the study and the manner in which the study was conducted, the results can come out quite differently. A study published in Heart Rhythm, a peer-reviewed medical journal regarding cardiovascular health, provides strong evidence that a patient’s Estradiol and Testosterone Levels are powerful indicators for sudden cardiac arrest, a lethal condition with a 95% mortality rate. What researchers found was that men that experienced cardiac arrest had average Testosterone Levels which were significantly lower than normal. It was also discovered that patients with elevated Estradiol Levels were more likely to experience cardiac arrest regardless of gender. What Is Cardiac Arrest? Cardiac Arrest is a condition in which the heart loses the ability to contract normally, which completely restricts blood flow. This prevents the body from circulating oxygen through the blood stream which quickly leads to death if not treated. Sudden Cardiac Arrest refers to Cardiac Arrest which occurs without warning. Because of the severity of the condition, under most circumstances, there is no way to provide effective treatment in time to save the patient, nor

Clomiphene Citrate for Low-T

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 12th, 2015

Clomiphene Citrate is an alternative to Testosterone Replacement Therapy for men looking for a way to safely restore their Testosterone Levels and improve their health, vitality, and sexual potency. It has helped many men across the country restore both their fertility and their erectile function, as well as improve their overall health and vitality. Although Clomiphene Citrate is available as a generic medication, it can also be found under the brand names Serophene and Clomid. Clomiphene Citrate was originally designed to be a fertility drug for women, but ongoing research has shown that the hormone has a tremendous impact upon Testosterone Levels in men that are suffering from Andropause or any other form of Secondary Testosterone Deficiency. How Does Clomiphene Citrate Work? To understand how Clomiphene Citrate works, it’s important to understand the underlying mechanisms which promote healthy Testosterone production in male patients. Testosterone Production is the result of a hormone cascade which starts at the Hypothalamus, which functions as the brain’s control center. When the Hypothalamus recognizes that the body needs Testosterone, it sends a hormone to the pituitary gland known as Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone. This hormone activates the production of two hormones both related to the healthy function of

Statins Have a Negative Effect Upon Testosterone Levels

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 2nd, 2015

How Do Statins Cause Low Testosterone? Statins are an effective means to improve mortality rates due to elevated cholesterol, but they are not a perfect solution, as few medications truly are. One of the most notable issues caused by the use of Statins is Testosterone Deficiency, also known as Low-T. Cholesterol is one of the primary building blocks of Testosterone, and one of the reasons why some cholesterol is absolutely necessary to maintain good health. Unfortunately, elevated Cholesterol Levels are very dangerous, which often necessitates the use of Statins and other treatments to reduce cholesterol. One problem with Statins is that they can often suppress Cholesterol Levels to an extent to which the body no longer produces enough Cholesterol to meet the needs of the body, which can lead to Hormone Deficiencies such as Testosterone Deficiency. Low-T is most recognized for its effects upon sexual function, such as reduced libido and erectile function, but it also leads to other issues, such as lack of energy, depression, poor sleep, anxiety, and cognitive decline. Men on Statins often turn to Low-T Treatments such as Testosterone Patches, Creams, and Gels in order to supplement their Statin Drugs and preserve the benefits of Testosterone

  Andropause: Age-Associated Testosterone Decline Are you over the age of thirty, and feel like your body is starting to just slow down? Are you starting to experience sexual issues such as low libido or erectile dysfunction? You very well may be suffering from Andropause. Andropause is a natural condition and nothing to be embarrassed about. What is Andropause? Andropause is a natural, age-related condition that men deal with, that bears some similarity to Menopause. Beginning at puberty, male Testosterone Levels skyrocket, and drop to normal adult levels by the late teens. Those high Testosterone Levels contribute to a lot of the characteristics that we attribute to teenagers and young men. They are full of vitality and bursting with libido and sexual desire. They tend to be highly confident and assertive, and there’s a reason why many men consider this the physical peak of their lives. The Effects of Low-T and Andropause Clearly Shown in Athletes Of course, like all good things, this healthy Testosterone Production eventually comes to an end. All men will experience Testosterone Decline. It is a natural aspect of the human condition. Testosterone Production starts to drop slowly around the late twenties or early thirties. In

Cardiovascular Issues Contribute Heavily to Loss of Memory and Cognitive Decline

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 17th, 2015

Cardiovascular Issues Contribute Heavily to Loss of Memory and Cognitive Decline The brain is the most physiologically demanding organ in the human body, and requires a constant flow of oxygen-rich blood to maintain its optimal function. If the heart and cardiovascular systems are unable to meet the demands of the brain, then the brain will have to adjust its function to compensate. Two of the most common issues related to aging are a decline in cognitive function and diminished cardiovascular health. The more research that is conducted with regard to these two issues, the more clear that it becomes that heart health is intricately linked to the health of the mind. Heart Problems Increase the Risk of Cognitive Impairment Individuals that suffer from poor heart health due to atherosclerosis, heart failure, hypertension, or other conditions which impact circulation are more likely to experience heightened cognitive decline in comparison to their peers with healthy hearts or cardiovascular systems in moderate health. A new study released in the Journal of the American Medical Association made connection quite clearly. In this study, medical researchers discovered that individuals with poor cardiovascular health were at significantly greater risk of cognitive decline, including diminished verbal ability,

Testosterone and Aggression: How T-Levels Impact Human Response to External, Social Threats

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 12th, 2015

Testosterone, as most people know, is the primary male sex hormone, and is associated with many characteristics which are classically considered to be masculine, among these is a predilection toward aggression. A recent study, led by Dr. Justin Carré of Nipissing University and published in the journal Biological Psychology, provides neurological evidence of the mechanism by which Testosterone exerts its influence upon aggression. Other, earlier research discovered that Testosterone administration affects neurological function, but prior studies were performed on female patients. In those studies, women were provided a one-time dose of Testosterone to monitor the way that it impacted neurological expression. The goal of Carré’s study was to investigate how such Testosterone administration would affect male neurological expression, in comparison to its effects upon the female brain. In particular, Carré wanted to examine how the male brain responds to threats when Testosterone Levels are artificially enhanced in healthy males. Testosterone, Threat Perception, and the Human Brain In particular, the researchers placed special emphasis on parts of the brain the are associated with aggression and threat response, such as the periaqueductal gray, the hypothalamus, and the amygdala.

LPCN 1021 Oral Testosterone Therapy Currently in Stage Three FDA Clinical Trial

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 11th, 2015

As of today, there is no oral Testosterone Product available on the market which is FDA-Approved and effective for relief from Testosterone Deficiency. There are a number of reasons for this. Oral Testosterone products available in the past have been bad for the liver, because of the way that the digestive system metabolizes Testosterone, for example. Most products that purport to provide Testosterone-Boosting power are over the counter supplements which contain amino acids which have been shown to increase Testosterone Levels, but again, these are largely ineffective as compared to Prescription Testosterone Products, as well as more dangerous, because these Testosterone Releasers also negatively impact liver function. Researchers have long been trying to create an effective Oral Testosterone Therapy medication, because the benefits of the oral route outweigh those of any other form of Testosterone Administration, if the medication can deliver the Testosterone safely and efficiently. Downside of Common Testosterone Therapy Options Testosterone Injections were the original form of Low-T therapy available, but most men would prefer to avoid using needles in lieu of other options. Testosterone Creams and Gels provide Low-T Treatment effectively, but are somewhat messy, and can transfer Testosterone to others via physical contact with the area

Could Civilization Have Been Formed as a Result of Declining Testosterone Levels in Males?

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 11th, 2015

A recent study conducted by a Duke Anthropologist provides stunning insights into the way that human civilization formed countless ages ago. In this study, nearly 1,500 modern and ancient skulls were measured and examined, and the conclusion is that modern males have much less Testosterone-related activity than their ancient counterparts, which likely played a role in mankind’s ability to form the large social groups which were needed to preclude modern civilization. Testosterone Potent Psychological and Social Force in Today’s Society Even today, Testosterone is a powerful force which impacts male personality. Men with more Testosterone are more assertive and more willing to take control of situations, whereas men with less Testosterone are more likely to be led and also to form more stable relationships with others. Male Skull Structure has Evolved Over Time The human skull structure of males changed dramatically since antiquity. Early men had strong, pronounced brows and more squarish heads, and as Testosterone Levels dropped, men began to form rounder, smoother skull and facial features. Based on medical research, this change can be almost universally attributed to a decline in the average Testosterone Activity of man over time. Robert Cieri was the lead researcher of this study,

Testosterone Therapy Allows Man to Have the Body That He Was Meant to Have

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 8th, 2015

One of the clearest means to see how Testosterone impacts male physiology is to look at how Testosterone Injections and other forms of Low-T Therapy have helped men with congenital conditions which have prevented them from producing normal levels of Testosterone. One such man is Danny May, a young man of twenty five from Liverpool that was born with Kallman Syndrome, a congenital condition which suppresses the body’s ability to produce Testosterone. In spite of suffering from the condition for his entire life, he was not officially diagnosed until the age of twenty. After being properly diagnosed, his doctors suggested that he take Testosterone Injection Therapy in order to reverse the effects of the condition and provide his body the Testosterone required for him to reach his masculine potential. Though he was not aware of his condition, he was well aware of its effects. Danny was far thinner and scrawnier than almost all males his age growing up, and it affected both his body image and his overall confidence. The issue was so severe that many thought that he was a child at first glance. As a result of Hypogonadism Treatment for Kallman Syndrome, Danny has gone through an almost

Testosterone Injections for Low-T and Andropause

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 8th, 2015

  Testosterone Injections for Low-T and Andropause Whatever you call it—Hypogonadism, Andropause, or Low-T—Testosterone Deficiency is no laughing matter, nor is it something that you should feel any embarrassment about. There are a number of highly effective treatments for Testosterone Deficiency, and one of the oldest and most reliable is Injectable Testosterone Therapy. Testosterone Injections are physician-prescribed, and deliver between three days and three weeks of Testosterone in a single shot, dependent upon the formulation. The most oft-prescribed form of Low-T Injection in the United States in known as Testosterone Cypionate, and it is designed to be injected once every seven to ten days for maximum effectiveness. How Do Testosterone Injections Work? Low-T Injections work by directly supplementing your body’s supply of Testosterone with a Recombinant, Bio-Identical form of the hormone that is produced by a pharmaceutical manufacturer or compounding pharmacy. Testosterone Injections, for the most part, are ester compounds. Esterization is a process by which Bio-Identical Testosterone is chemically linked to an ester compound in order to slow down the rate by which the body absorbs the medication. This is why Testosterone Injections last as long as they do. Testosterone is normally absorbed quickly and readily by the human

Testosterone Treatments May Alleviate Negative Effects of Type-Two Diabetes

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 5th, 2015

Type-2 Diabetes is one of the most prevalent medical conditions in American society today, as well as one of the most dangerous. Type-2 Diabetes is caused when lifestyle factors inhibit the body’s ability to utilize insulin, which is responsible for the transport and utilization of glucose, the body’s primary energy source. There are many factors which increase the risk of Diabetes, but the most powerful and direct cause of diabetes is the overconsumption of simple carbohydrates such as sugar and processed grains. As a result of the dangers of Type-2 Diabetes, which wreaks havoc on the cardiovascular system, tens of millions of dollars are pumped into Diabetes research each year. Another factor which contributes to diabetes is obesity. This is unsurprising, considering that people that are overweight are more likely to consume the foods that lead to diabetes, and are more likely to consume them in great abundance. A recent study suggests that, among patients that are obese, suffering from Low-T, and currently suffering from Type-2 diabetes, Bio-Identical Testosterone Treatments have the ability to improve health outcomes for patients. Testosterone Study Provides Insight into the Link between Low-T and Diabetes This study was recently released in the periodical, the European

Ten Simple Steps That You Can Take To Knock Out Stress

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 4th, 2015

Chronic Stress A lot of people think of stress as simply a psychological issue, but it actually affects both your body and mind. Chronic stress increases your risk for a countless number of physiological disorders from obesity to hypertension, and most people don’t realize the absolutely amazing impact that controlling and mitigating stress can have on your mind, body, and soul. Although there are some major steps you can take to control high levels of anxiety and stress, including medical treatment, there are a lot of little things that you can do to deflate stress before it becomes problematic, or reduce stress in your life by recognizing that stress and making the conscious effort to overcome it. Chewing Gum Can Help Alleviate Stress Scientific research has shown that chewing gum can help alleviate anxiety. A study conducted in Japan shows that chewing gum for ten minutes has the ability to help control physiological factors associated with stress, as well as reducing feelings of stress in the minds of the participants. Specifically, chewing gum was shown to reduce cortisol levels in the blood stream, one of the primary stress hormones produced by the body. Researchers also hypothesize that chewing gum can

New Research Shows that Testosterone Therapy is Not Associated with an Increased Prostate Cancer Risk in Patients with Low-T

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 1st, 2015

Research regarding the effects of Testosterone Deficiency and Testosterone Treatment for men with Low-T has ballooned in recent years, as the number of male patients that have sought out Testosterone Treatments such as Testosterone Injections and Patches has grown into the millions. There have been questions about Testosterone with regard to its safety, however. For one, there has been some evidence that suggests that Testosterone Replacement Therapy increases the risk of Prostate Cancer and other Reproductive Cancers. Based on new research published by The Journal of Urology, however, the risk of Prostate Cancer that has been previously associated with Testosterone Therapy is overstated, and may not increase the risk of the form of cancer at all. What is Hypogonadism, and How is Low-T Therapy Used to Treat Hypogonadism? Hypogonadism refers to any health issue that leads to reduced levels of Testosterone. Many men suffer from Primary Hypogonadism, a class of conditions in which the testes are not able to sufficiently produce Testosterone to meet the needs of the body. Most men that experience Testosterone Deficiency, however, suffer from Secondary Hypogonadism, a class of conditions in which issues upstream, related to the production of precursor hormones such as Leutenizing Hormone and

Physiology of Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 1st, 2015

What is Testosterone? Testosterone is one of the many chemical messengers known as Hormones, and it is important for the normal health and function of both men and women, though the hormone is primarily associated with male wellness and development. Testosterone belongs to a specific class of hormones known as steroids. Most people think of steroids as hormones or chemicals that boost anabolic, muscle-building performance, but a steroid represents a molecule with a specific structure that is most commonly used in order to deliver messages and exert physiological changes in the body. Three common steroids are cholesterol, testosterone, and estrogen. In fact, the human body builds both Testosterone and Estrogen from a core of cholesterol, which is one reason why cholesterol is such an important part of daily nutritional intake. Testosterone and Prenatal Development Testosterone is responsible for the development of primary male sex characteristics while the child is still in the womb. In the normal developmental cycle, Testosterone begins to affect the male fetus around seven weeks after conception, and encourages the formation of Leydig Cells, which are responsible for the production of Testosterone. After the fetus develops its own ability to produce Testosterone, the internal male sexual organs

Twenty Facts You May Not Know About Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on June 15th, 2015

Testosterone is more popular than ever in the United States. Though the hormone is widely known and recognized for its benefits to men with Testosterone Deficiency, most people still have a lot of questions about the hormone. The goal of this article is to explain some lesser known facts about Testosterone—How Testosterone is Made, Why Testosterone is Important, and more. Where is Testosterone Produced? Most people know that Testosterone is produced by the Testicles, but did you know that Testosterone is also produced by other parts of the body as well? In addition to the Testicles, Testosterone is also secreted by the adrenal glands in men, and in both the ovaries and adrenal glands in women—That’s right, women produce and require Testosterone as well. The release of Testosterone during the early phase of gestation triggers the development of primary sex characteristics. How Does Testosterone Affect Physiological Function during Childhood? Testosterone is important in both sexes after a child is born. For example, Testosterone helps to modulate the manufacture of Red Blood Cells, as well as the distribution of body fat across the body. After puberty, increased Testosterone production in males contributes to their lower natural body fat percentage. Did Our

Relationship Among Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, High Testosterone, and Diabetes

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 25th, 2015

Prostate Enlargement is one of the most widespread age-related conditions among males in the United States today. Prostate Enlargement is referred to medically as BPH, or Benign Prostate Enlargement. The older that a man gets, the more likely he is going to experience BPH in his lifetime. If a man lives to be eighty, there is more than a ninety percent chance that he will experience a measurable level of Prostate Enlargement. A large chunk of those men, around forty percent, will need some form of medical intervention for BPH. BPH represents a significant strain on the health care economy, because it is both widespread and can be expensive to treat. It is believed that Benign Prostate Hyperplasia leads to billions upon billions in cost to patients nationwide, both in the form of treatment and in terms of medical leave from employment. Of course, there are almost certainly other costs involved which have not been accurately assessed, so there is a large intangible cost to BPH as well. Recent research published by the University of California at Santa Barbara brings us closer to understanding the underlying issues which lead to BPH. This study provides strong evidence that abnormally high levels

The Truth Behind Common Male Sex Myths

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 8th, 2015

In spite of the fascination with sex by the Western public and encouraged by the Western media, there are still many aspects of our sexuality, in which we are misinformed, largely because of our still somewhat-Puritanical views on sex in many aspects. A recent book looks to dispel some of these sex-myths, and it is called “Sex by Numbers: What statistics can tell us about sexual behavior.” In a world where we are fascinated by the mythology behind sexuality, this book attempts to dispel (or validate) those myths using real scientific data about sexuality. The author of the book is Cambridge professor Dr. David Spielgalhalter. What is the average male penis size? The commonly held wisdom regarding penis-size is that the average length of the male penis is around six inches. This myth is among the easiest to clarify, because there has been an abundance of research in recent years regarding penis size all across the world. One group of researchers performed a survey of twenty different studies specifically related to penis-size, measuring over 15,000 men across the globe. One of the issues which made previous studies so inaccurate was that they largely revolved around “self-report” and were thus not

Five Ways to Manage Cholesterol without Medication

Written by Dr. White, Published on April 3rd, 2015

High Cholesterol is one of the leading risk factors associated with poor heart health and increased mortality rate from conditions associated with the heart and the cardiovascular system. The quickest way to get dangerously high cholesterol levels under control quickly is through the use of Statin Drugs and similar medications, but for patients that are looking to prevent their cholesterol levels from reaching a problematic, dangerous level, there are a number of steps that you can take to keep your cholesterol under control. Also, even if you do currently take drugs to control your Cholesterol, it’s still heavily in your favor as a patient to make strong efforts to improve your natural cholesterol balance, not only to limit your need for Cholesterol Medications, but also because these same steps can significantly improve your health in a variety of ways. Lose Weight to Control Cholesterol The food that you eat and the bodyfat that you carry play a major, central role in your underlying cholesterol levels. If you lose weight, you help get your cholesterol in check more effectively. If you eat less of the foods associated with elevated cholesterol, you’ll also improve your Cholesterol balance.

Testosterone Levels Associated with Serotonin Activity in the Brain

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 30th, 2015

Testosterone and other Androgen hormones have a strong and potent impact on psychological function and wellness. There are a wide variety of studies which have investigated how Testosterone affects the minds of both men and women. For example, changing female hormone levels are associated with both premenstrual mood changes and post-partum depression. Of course, not all effects of Testosterone on women are negative, however. Natural Testosterone Levels benefit sexual desire and emotional health in a positive manner for women, in a similar manner as they do in men. There is strong clinical evidence which shows that Testosterone Deficiency is associated with an increased risk of depression and mood disorders among men, and research has also shown that Bio-Identical Testosterone Therapy has the power to improve the psychological outlook of male patients taking Low-T Patches, Injections, and Creams for Low-T, but the exact mechanism by which Testosterone alters mood is less well understood. Recent data produced by University of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy has shown that Testosterone improves Serotonin signalling in the brain by boosting the volume of proteins which are designed to transport Serotonin. The study was conducted by scientific researchers at the Medical University of Vienna. Many anti-depressant medications available

Testosterone Deficiency and Low-T at Epidemic Levels Among Men in the United States

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 30th, 2015

Medical professionals across the country have seen a boom in men that are looking for Testosterone Therapy Treatments in order to mitigate the effects of Low-T and Andropause. This is partially because of the increased social-awareness regarding the effects of Testosterone Deficiency, which include weight gain, loss of muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, and depression, but there is also some concern that the increased incidence of Low-T among aging men may also be the result of other factors, including Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals, Obesity, and other Lifestyle Issues which contribute to declining Testosterone Levels among the male population. One of the most well-known experts in Low-T Treatment is Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, who is the director of the LIFEFORCE Medical Institute, a Hormone Clinic in Chicago, Illinois, which specializes in the use of HRT Treatments such as Testosterone Therapy in order to improve health and wellness with aging. As medical science grows regarding the effects of Hormone Imbalance and Deficiency on the human body, medical clinics such as LIFEFORCE will become both more prominent and more important in our quest to maintain good health throughout our lives.

Escitalopram (Lexapro / Cipralex) What is Escitalopram? Escitalopram is a commonly prescribed antidepressant that also goes by a number of other brand names, including Cipralex and Lexapro. Escitalopram belongs to a class of antidepressant medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), and is FDA approved for the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder, both conditions which are most often associated with abnormally low levels of Serotonin in the blood stream. SSRIs like Escitalopram prevent Serotonin from being reabsorbed as quickly, allowing them to remain active in the space between neurons for a longer period of time. This medication is approved for patients twelve years of age or older. Escitalopram and Citalopram Escitalopram (Lexapro) is a stereoisomer of another medication known as citalopram (Celexa), meaning that the molecular configuration of the two compounds are identical, except they are mirror images of one another. Escitalopram is known as an S-Steroisomer, which just references its configuration from a standardized position. Pharmaceutical Uses of Escitalopram (Lexapro) In the United States, Escitalopram (Lexapro) is approved for Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. In Europe, Escitalopram has a wider range of approved uses, including panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder,

Vardenafil (Levitra) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 19th, 2015

What is Vardenafil? Vardenafil is one of the three primary Erectile Dysfunction medications available in the United States, and is sold under the brand name Levitra in the United States. In Italy, the product is known as Vivanza, and in India, it is known as Staxyn. How Does Vardenafil Work? Like its cousins, Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis), Vardenafil is what is known as a PDE5 Inhibitor. PDE5 Inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis by encouraging the relaxation of muscles within the organ which restrict blood flow, which leads to erection. What Causes an Erection? To put it simply, an erection occurs when blood flow is encouraged to the penis and blood outflow is restricted, producing a ballooning effect which leads directly to erection. Blood vessels leading to the penis, in the Corpus Cavernosum, dilate, which leads blood to enter the penis more quickly, and veins which draw blood away from the penis undergo vasoconstriction. In order for this process to take place, a man must experience stimulation which promotes the erection. When a man experiences stimulation, it encourages the manufacture of nitric oxide by the organ, which then dissipates out through the penis. Nitric oxide is a powerful

Tadalafil (Cialis) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 14th, 2015

What is Tadalafil? Tadalafil belongs to a class of medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors, or simply PDE5s. Sildenafil belongs to this pharmaceutical class as well. Most patients know these two drugs as Cialis (Tadalafil) and Viagra (Sildenafil). Tadalafil is primarily used as an Erectile Dysfunction medication, but can also be used to treat Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a condition in which the arteries which carry blood from the heart to the lungs are excessively constricted, causing blood to flow through the region at an abnormally high pressure. When Tadalafil is prescribed as an Erectile Dysfunction treatment is it usually referred to as Cialis, but it is marketed as Adcirca as a hypertension medication. As of 2011, Tadalafil earned FDA approval for the treatment of a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, a condition in which the prostate grows larger, but not due to cancer or malignancy. In this case, Tadalafil is specifically prescribed to patients that simultaneously experience both Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia simultaneously. Tadalafil was originally invented by a small biotech company which was based in Washington, known as Icos Corporation, in partnership with Glaxo Wellcome. Eventually, Icos Corporation entered a partnership with Eli Lilly, and

Tamoxifen Citrate Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 11th, 2015

What is Tamoxifen? Tamoxifen is an orally administered medication which is one of the most important medications used in the treatment of breast cancer around the world. Because of its importance, and the prevalence of breast cancer around the globe, Tamoxifen is included in the WHO’s List of Essential Medicines, those which are considered absolutely necessary to provide basic care to patients. How Does Tamoxifen Work? Tamoxifen is a medication which limits the activity of Estrogen in the breast tissue. When Tamoxifen is taken, it is broken down into a compound known as 4-hydroxytamoxifen, which then travels through the body producing effects dependent upon where it is. Tamoxifen is considered most valuable because of its effect on breast tissue, but it also impacts processes in other areas of the body, such as the endometrium. In this area of the body, Tamoxifen actually encourages Estrogenic activity, whereas in the breast tissue it significantly reduces the effects of Estrogen upon breast tissue. Because Tamoxifen impacts Estrogen activity differently dependent upon the area of the body, it is referred to as a Selective Estrogen-Receptor Molecule. It is highly effective at treating breast cancer, and the primary form of Hormone Therapy for female patients

Testosterone for Women: Is it an Option Worth Considering?

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 19th, 2014

Testosterone Therapy has been one of the most talked-about treatments both in the United States and across the western world. Testosterone Deficiency is becoming commonly recognized among men as one of the leading barriers which prevents a patient from achieving long-term health and vitality, and evidence continues to mount that Low-T Therapy with Patches, Creams, and Injections are a highly effective means to establish health and virility among male patients with Testosterone Deficiency. Of course, there is also growing evidence that women can benefit from Testosterone. Women have used Hormone Replacement Therapy for decades as a means to mitigate the effects of Menopause and the Hormone Deficiencies that occur as a result of “the change.” Evidence in recent years accumulates that many of the issues that women experience as they grow older are not simply the result of changes in the feminine hormones, but as a result of declining Testosterone Production as well. Wait—Women Need Testosterone Too? Women produce Testosterone throughout their lives, just as men produce low levels of Estrogen. Women need around 1/10th as much Testosterone as men, but it still serves a variety of important purposes. It stimulates metabolism, improves bone mineral density, and preserves muscle mass.

Natesto Testosterone Nasal Gel Therapy on the Horizon

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 12th, 2014

Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a highly effective hormone treatment designed to restore Testosterone Levels in patients suffering from Low-T and/or Andropause. One issue with Testosterone Treatments as they exist today is that each form of therapy has its own distinct drawbacks. Common forms of treatment involve Testosterone Patches, Testosterone Gels, Testoterone Implants, and Testosterone Injections Low-T Patch Drawbacks – Transdermal Patches have to be adhered to the skin 22-24 hours per day. Some people don’t like the appearance of these patches, and a small portion of patients develop irritation as a result of the patches. These patches also have issues when submerged in water. Low-T Gel Drawbacks – Gel and Cream Testosterone comes with the risk of transference if someone makes physical contact with the area where the treatment is administered, in the hours following application. These treatments also wash off when exposed to water in the first few hours, reducing the effectiveness of treatment in that case. Low-T Implant Drawbacks – Testosterone Pellets provide a 3-5 month dose of Testosterone, but must be surgically implanted in an outpatient procedure. Furthermore, there is a small risk of infection, and a slightly larger risk that the pellets will dislodge from the

Can Testosterone Deficiency Cause or Contribute to Feelings of Depression?

Written by Dr. White, Published on November 3rd, 2014

Testosterone is a complex hormone which influences physical and psychological health in many ways. Most people are aware of the sexual effects of Testosterone Deficiency, such as impotence and lack of libido, but they aren’t so aware of the variety of other issues that Testosterone Deficiency can cause. Testosterone belongs to a class of hormones that are referred to as Androgens. These hormones are produced in both men and women, but are produced in far greater quantities in males. Testosterone plays a role in maintaining the normal function of the body in a variety of ways. Testosterone promotes muscle mass and physical strength, and it fosters sex drive and sexual ability. Testosterone is also a potent anabolic hormone, which means that it has a powerful effect upon metabolism. Men naturally have less body fat than women mostly because of Testosterone. In addition to promoting sexual function and libido, Testosterone is also integrally important to the production of sperm, and therefore regulates fertility. There is increasing evidence that Testosterone is also strongly correlated with a positive psychological state in males. Men with Low-T are more likely to experience depression and anxiety, and they are also more likely to be less confident,

Some Animal Research Suggests that High Testosterone May Increase Prostate Cancer Risk

Written by Dr. White, Published on October 16th, 2014

A new study was recently released in the journal, Endocrinology, which provides evidence that Testosterone is associated with cancer risk in rats when rats are exposed to chemicals which are known carcinogens. For this reason, the lead researcher of the study believes that men should be extremely wary of taking Testosterone without an established clinical need. Testosterone is experiencing a surge in popularity like never before, as a means to enhance sexual function, combat fatigue, and improve body composition. Men all across the country and the world have experienced the benefits of Testosterone for Low-T, but, many men seek Testosterone that have no clinical need for treatment. A survey by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism discovered that the number of men on Low-T Treatments with Testosterone increased fourfold since the year 2000. In addition to that, new research in recent years suggests that Testosterone Therapy may be associated with an increased risk of dangerous heart conditions. Could Heart Risks Be Exaggerated? Taking Testosterone alone does appear to have some heart and cardiovascular risks associated with it, but further investigation strongly suggests that these risks can easily be mitigated through the responsible use of Estrogen Blockers and other preventative

Methadone Suppresses Testosterone Production in Men

Written by Dr. White, Published on October 16th, 2014

Research shows that treatment for Opioid Addiction can significantly suppress Testosterone Production in male patients. These conclusions are derived from an article published in Scientific Reports, conducted by researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. In the past, it has been noted that addiction to Opioids, including Heroin and Oxycontin, can suppress Testosterone Levels, but this study quantifies the significance of that Hormone Suppression. This research shows that Opioid Dependency Treatments, which use drugs such as Methadone to curtail addiction to harder and more dangerous Opioids, reduce Testosterone Levels by far more than medical professionals previously assumed. The lead researcher for this study, Dr. Zena Samaan, explains that the results were so dramatic that they believed that they had made an error somewhere in their calculations. When they went back and analyzed the data and the science behind the results, however, everything was sound. The data for this study was collected from 231 participants, all of which were taking Methadone as an aspect of their Opioid Dependency Treatments in Ontario, Canada. This data was compared to 783 men and women from Ontario that did not use Opioids. In Canada, as well as in the United States, it is common to

Eleven Foods that Can Drain Your Libido

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 17th, 2014

For perhaps all of history, the pleasures that we derive from both food and sex have been intertwined. There’s always been a sort of magic regarding how the two pleasures interact. Perhaps some of this connection is a result of our cultural traditions and the placebo effect, but there is more and more evidence that many foods honestly and truly have a physiological effect upon the body which affects sexual drive and/or performance. Many foods have been linked to increased libido and sexual ability, but there are also many foods that have a suppressive effect on these desires, and the foods that you eat could actually be a major factor in your lack of desire for sex and intimacy. What Controls Sex Drive? There are a lot of different influences which impact our libido and our desire for intimate contact, as well as our ability to perform in the bedroom. Many of these influences are obviously psychological or interpersonal, but our hormone balance and function also plays a vital role, and is the physiological spark that activates our desire. The most important hormone with regard to sexual desire and libido is Testosterone. This is actually true of both sexes, men

Ensuring The Safety of Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 13th, 2014

Late last year, an article was published by the Journal of the American Medical Association that suggested that Testosterone Restoration was associated with an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and general mortality in males suffering from Low-T. Largely as a result of this study, the FDA now requires that all Testosterone Therapy Manufacturers clearly note these potential risks associated with therapy on every dose of Testosterone Treatment. There’s no reason to have issues with the FDA in this case, because that’s a reasonable step to take, but the study which precipitated this change in Testosterone Labeling was highly flawed, and an example of media entities taking studies in a vacuum and treating them as the definitive word on a particular treatment. JAMA Testosterone Study Flawed In reality, this Testosterone Study is highly flawed, at least when considered as a potential indictment against Low-T Treatment for men suffering from Testosterone Deficiency and Andropause. There’s even the risk that this study could lead patients that could seriously benefit from this form of Hormone Therapy Treatment to avoid life-changing treatment because of the unwarranted fears suggested by this study. In fact, there are many medical professionals that say the the effective validity
