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


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

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 »

Methadone Suppresses Testosterone Production in Men


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on September 6th, 2018

methadone image 300x300Research 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 the 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 … Read more »

Can Testosterone Deficiency Cause or Contribute to Feelings of Depression?


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on September 6th, 2018

Testosterone Increases Confidence and Reduces Anxiety 300x199Testosterone 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 crucial 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, … Read more »

What Is Testosterone and Why Does It Decline? "A lot of the symptoms are mirrored by other medical problems," Hedges says. "And for a long time, we were not attributing them to low testosterone, but to diabetes, depression, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. But awareness and appreciation of low testosterone have risen. We recognize now that low testosterone may be at the root of problems." Doctors will want to rule out any such possible explanations for symptoms before blaming them on low testosterone. They will also want to order a specific blood test to determine a man's testosterone level. "The blood test is really the thing," Mezitis says. The bottom of a man's normal total testosterone range is about 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). The upper limit is approximately 800ng/dL depending on the lab. A lower-than-normal score on a blood test can be caused by some conditions, including: Some medicines and genetic diseases can also lower a man's testosterone score. Aging does contribute to low scores. In some cases, the cause is unknown. A low score does not always translate to symptoms, Mezitis says, "but we often find something that's off when we see scores of 200 or … Read more »

Can testosterone therapy promote youth and vitality? Testosterone therapy can help reverse the effects of hypogonadism, but it's unclear whether testosterone therapy would have any benefit for older men who are otherwise healthy.

And some small studies have revealed mixed results. For example, in one study healthy men who took testosterone medications increased muscle mass but didn't gain strength. Testosterone therapy has various risks. For example, testosterone therapy may: Also, testosterone therapy may impact your risk of heart disease.
