Hypogonadism Guide


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 16th, 2020

testosterone cypionateHypogonadism is the term for any condition which causes sex hormones to be produced at levels that 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. Video Download: Hypogonadism Guide Video Stream: Hypogonadism Guide 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 dramatically. 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.

This change in hormone production can lead to psychological, sexual, and physical changes that 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.

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 some 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 a generic prescription but was initially 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.

Got Andropause? Male Renewal With Androgen Testosterone Treatment for Men


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on March 23rd, 2019

supplements recommended via a doctor 200x300Got Andropause? Andropause is a broad medical-technical term describing the male quality of life decline and health problems associated with hormone imbalances that men develop as they continue to age past their third decade. More specific terms might include hypogonadism, hypothyroidism, and hypopituitarism. Precise terms that might be used to describe these class of male hormone decline are low T and low HGH, or male hypotestosteronemia and adult-onset growth hormone deficiency. Once you reach the second half of your 30s, in the 35 to 40 years old range, you will start to notice some changes. Once you enter your fourth decade, the changes will become more prominent. Andropause in Adulthood No matter what your chronological age once you reach adulthood and middle life, you need testosterone to function correctly, to maintain your libido, keep your moods balanced more or less, and keep your mental focus sharp. When andropause kicks in and a drop of testosterone and HGH results, you should seriously consider a TRT and Sermorelin program if these problems become pronounced and you get a proper diagnosis. One of the more noticeable signs men might need treatment is a lack of motivation, energy, and desire. A kind of malaise sets in, … Read more »

My Journey In And Out Of Andropause!


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on June 4th, 2020

Back in 2000, I experienced many of the signs and symptoms of andropause, i.e., my sex drive was low; my mood was poor; my zeal for life was so non-existent ... For several years now, my great interest has been hormone levels and how to fine-tune their balancing act. What I've learned over the years has benefited not only myself, but also my customers. I've been candid with my studies and personal experiences along the way but less well-known is that I began my investigation into hormonal balancing for personal reasons. I'm now 35 years old with the hormonal profile of a healthy eighteen-year-old. My mood is upbeat; my experience of life intense, my training gains are solid and my sex drive is optimal. I'm not boasting; I tell you this because what I learned--and recommend--works. It works for me and will work for you as well. It took many years of private research and testing to get where I am now but not too long ago things were much different for me.

Andropause – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 18th, 2019

Andropause or male menopause, sometimes colloquially called "man-opause," is a name that has been given, in some parts of the English-speaking world, to a set of effects that appears in some aging men, and which have some superficial similarities to menopause effects in women. Andropause may be related to the slow but steady reduction of the production of the hormones testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone in middle-aged men, and the consequences of that reduction. It is also associated with a decrease in Leydig cells. A steady decline in testosterone levels with age (in both men and women) is well documented. Unlike "menopause," the word "andropause" is currently not recognized by the World Health Organization and its ICD-10 medical classification. While the words are sometimes used interchangeably, hypogonadism is a deficiency state in which the hormone testosterone goes below the normal range for even an aging male. The impact of low levels of testosterone has been previously reported. In 1944, Heller and Myers identified symptoms of what they labeled the "male climacteric" including loss of libido and potency, nervousness, depression, impaired memory, the inability to concentrate, fatigue, insomnia, hot flushes, and sweating. Heller and Myers found that their subjects had lower than usual … Read more »

Symptoms of andropause – Men’s health


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 25th, 2018

Symptoms of andropause can vary from one man to the next. Symptoms of male Andropause may include lethargy or decreased energy, decreased libido or interest in sex, erectile dysfunction with loss of erections, muscle weakness and aches, inability to sleep, hot flashes, night sweats, depression, infertility and thinning of bones or bone loss. When there is less testosterone available to do its work, the testosterone target-organ response decreases, bringing about many changes. Since there is great variability in testosterone levels among healthy men, therefore not all men will experience the same changes to the same extent. Testosterone, together with its metabolites, is collectively known as androgens. As a group of steroid hormones, they stimulate the development of masculine characteristics and are responsible for male puberty characterized by deepening voice, broadening shoulders, and moustache growth. The hallmark of andropause is declining testosterone levels. Testosterone levels begin to decline with age after maturation. This is accompanied by the concurrent appearance of a myriad of related physiological changes commonly associated with aging. These changes include diminished libido, reduced frequency of sex (the "senior slump"), erectile dysfunction, infertility, changes in body composition, reductions in body and facial hair, and osteoporosis. Andropause is in effect … Read more »
