Testosterone Treatments May Alleviate Negative Effects of Type-Two Diabetes

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

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

Clomiphene Citrate for Low-T

Written by Dr. 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

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
