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

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 16th, 2019

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.

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.

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on September 8th, 2018

active young woman completing a run 300x200Testosterone 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 prevent 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 merely 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.

Relationship Among Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, High Testosterone, and Diabetes

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 27th, 2018

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.
