Testosterone Treatments May Alleviate Negative Effects of Type-Two Diabetes


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on December 11th, 2018

the human body 1279964_640 293x300Type-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 can 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 Journal of Medical … Read more »

testosterone injection 300x200Testosterone Replacement By Dr. Luigi Santorini Testosterone deficiency or androgen deficiency syndrome is a lot more common in people than the detractors of this vital hormone would have us believe. There are many websites and articles to be found in mainstream and scientific journals that claim Hypogonadism (an example being low testosterone also called hypotestosteronemia) is a "general exaggeration" concerning marketers promoting the concept of "Is it Low T?."

Low T – My life was falling apart because I had low testosterone


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on December 5th, 2018

low testosterone diagnosis 300x200Low T Story I stood next to my bags on the sidewalk, looking down at the ground. Humiliated and confused. As my parents pulled up in front of my dormitory, I picked up my stuff and carried it over to the truck, shuffling awkwardly from the exertion as 30 lbs of foreign body fat tried to squeeze its way out of my clothes. I smelled funny, I was a sweaty, an anxious mess, and I had no idea what was wrong. 24 hours earlier, my academic dean explained to me how medical leave works. You simply take a year off from school to address a medical issue, then return when you're feeling better. Sounds simple enough. I sure as hell wasn't feeling great, and I had no idea why. Heck, I was damn near non-functional, spending most of my time holed up in my dorm room, depressed and lonely. I was missing homework assignments and skipping class. And it wasn't because I was some wanna be cool kid truant that I felt the need to skip class. It was as if my body and brain were broken. I found out I had low testosterone (hypogonadism) or Low T, by getting … Read more »

Clomiphene Citrate for Low-T


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 20th, 2018

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 … Read more »

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


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

Red tylenol bottle 300x194Tylenol is one of the most popular pain relievers used in the United States and is clinically known as Acetaminophen or Paracetamol. Some risks have long been associated with the over-use of Tylenol, one of the most common of which is liver damage. Tylenol is 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 study was conducted on rodents, but … Read more »

More than 152 Million Men Suffer from Hypogonadism and Low Testosterone


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 17th, 2018

low consultant testosterone symptoms in men 300x201Testosterone deficiency is a worldwide health issue which impacts millions upon millions of men across the globe. The world health organization estimates that 152 million males suffer from low-t. There are researchers and scientists from every major country on earth working on treatments and strategies to treat low-t and andropause so that men can live healthier and longer lives, as well as achieve restored sexual ability and satisfaction. Age-related hypogonadism is common and widespread, and your risk of experiencing issues related to low-t only increases as you grow older. Low-T is a Condition, not a Disease It's important to realize that andropause, though treatable and correctable, is distinctly correlated with the aging process. Testosterone deficiency is not caused by a virus or bacteria, nor is it a malfunction of the human body. It's a slow but steady decline in hormone balance which negatively impacts wellness and sexual health. Another name for this condition is hypoandrogenic deficiency syndrome. Testosterone levels follow a predictable pattern throughout the lifespan of the average male. Testosterone production naturally spikes during the formation of primary sex characteristics in the womb, and at the onset of puberty. After puberty has completed, testosterone levels reach an elevated, healthy … Read more »
