Ensuring The Safety of Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men

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

Late last year, an article was published by the Journal of the American Medical Association that suggested that Testosterone Restoration was associated with an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and general mortality in males suffering from Low-T. Largely as a result of this study, the FDA now requires that all Testosterone Therapy Manufacturers clearly note these potential risks associated with therapy on every dose of Testosterone Treatment. There’s no reason to have issues with the FDA in this case, because that’s a reasonable step to take, but the study which precipitated this change in Testosterone Labeling was highly flawed, and an example of media entities taking studies in a vacuum and treating them as the definitive word on a particular treatment. JAMA Testosterone Study Flawed In reality, this Testosterone Study is highly flawed, at least when considered as a potential indictment against Low-T Treatment for men suffering from Testosterone Deficiency and Andropause. There’s even the risk that this study could lead patients that could seriously benefit from this form of Hormone Therapy Treatment to avoid life-changing treatment because of the unwarranted fears suggested by this study. In fact, there are many medical professionals that say the the effective validity

Eleven Foods that Can Drain Your Libido

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

For perhaps all of history, the pleasures that we derive from both food and sex have been intertwined. There’s always been a sort of magic regarding how the two pleasures interact. Perhaps some of this connection is a result of our cultural traditions and the placebo effect, but there is more and more evidence that many foods honestly and truly have a physiological effect upon the body which affects sexual drive and/or performance. Many foods have been linked to increased libido and sexual ability, but there are also many foods that have a suppressive effect on these desires, and the foods that you eat could actually be a major factor in your lack of desire for sex and intimacy. What Controls Sex Drive? There are a lot of different influences which impact our libido and our desire for intimate contact, as well as our ability to perform in the bedroom. Many of these influences are obviously psychological or interpersonal, but our hormone balance and function also plays a vital role, and is the physiological spark that activates our desire. The most important hormone with regard to sexual desire and libido is Testosterone. This is actually true of both sexes, men

Methadone Suppresses Testosterone Production in Men

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

Research 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 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 to

Some Animal Research Suggests that High Testosterone May Increase Prostate Cancer Risk

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

A new study was recently released in the journal, Endocrinology, which provides evidence that Testosterone is associated with cancer risk in rats when rats are exposed to chemicals which are known carcinogens. For this reason, the lead researcher of the study believes that men should be extremely wary of taking Testosterone without an established clinical need. Testosterone is experiencing a surge in popularity like never before, as a means to enhance sexual function, combat fatigue, and improve body composition. Men all across the country and the world have experienced the benefits of Testosterone for Low-T, but, many men seek Testosterone that have no clinical need for treatment. A survey by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism discovered that the number of men on Low-T Treatments with Testosterone increased fourfold since the year 2000. In addition to that, new research in recent years suggests that Testosterone Therapy may be associated with an increased risk of dangerous heart conditions. Could Heart Risks Be Exaggerated? Taking Testosterone alone does appear to have some heart and cardiovascular risks associated with it, but further investigation strongly suggests that these risks can easily be mitigated through the responsible use of Estrogen Blockers and other preventative

Can Testosterone Deficiency Cause or Contribute to Feelings of Depression?

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

Testosterone 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 important 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,

Natesto Testosterone Nasal Gel Therapy on the Horizon

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 5th, 2018

Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a highly effective hormone treatment designed to restore Testosterone Levels in patients suffering from Low-T and/or Andropause. One issue with Testosterone Treatments as they exist today is that each form of therapy has its own distinct drawbacks. Common forms of treatment involve Testosterone Patches, Testosterone Gels, Testoterone Implants, and Testosterone Injections Low-T Patch Drawbacks – Transdermal Patches have to be adhered to the skin 22-24 hours per day. Some people don’t like the appearance of these patches, and a small portion of patients develop irritation as a result of the patches. These patches also have issues when submerged in water. Low-T Gel Drawbacks – Gel and Cream Testosterone comes with the risk of transference if someone makes physical contact with the area where the treatment is administered, in the hours following application. These treatments also wash off when exposed to water in the first few hours, reducing the effectiveness of treatment in that case. Low-T Implant Drawbacks – Testosterone Pellets provide a 3-5 month dose of Testosterone, but must be surgically implanted in an outpatient procedure. Furthermore, there is a small risk of infection, and a slightly larger risk that the pellets will dislodge from the

Tadalafil (Cialis) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 1st, 2018

What is Tadalafil? Tadalafil belongs to a class of medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors, or simply PDE5s. Sildenafil belongs to this pharmaceutical class as well. Most patients know these two drugs as Cialis (Tadalafil) and Viagra (Sildenafil). Tadalafil is primarily used as an Erectile Dysfunction medication, but can also be used to treat Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a condition in which the arteries which carry blood from the heart to the lungs are excessively constricted, causing blood to flow through the region at an abnormally high pressure. When Tadalafil is prescribed as an Erectile Dysfunction treatment is it usually referred to as Cialis, but it is marketed as Adcirca as a hypertension medication. As of 2011, Tadalafil earned FDA approval for the treatment of a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, a condition in which the prostate grows larger, but not due to cancer or malignancy. In this case, Tadalafil is specifically prescribed to patients that simultaneously experience both Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia simultaneously. Tadalafil was originally invented by a small biotech company which was based in Washington, known as Icos Corporation, in partnership with Glaxo Wellcome. Eventually, Icos Corporation entered a partnership with Eli Lilly, and

Tamoxifen Citrate

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 1st, 2018

Tamoxifen Citrate What is Tamoxifen? Tamoxifen is an orally administered medication which is one of the most important medications used in the treatment of breast cancer around the world. Because of its importance, and the prevalence of breast cancer around the globe, Tamoxifen is included in the WHO’s List of Essential Medicines, those which are considered absolutely necessary to provide basic care to patients. How Does Tamoxifen Work? Tamoxifen is a medication which limits the activity of Estrogen in the breast tissue. When Tamoxifen is taken, it is broken down into a compound known as 4-hydroxytamoxifen, which then travels through the body producing effects dependent upon where it is. Tamoxifen is considered most valuable because of its effect on breast tissue, but it also impacts processes in other areas of the body, such as the endometrium. In this area of the body, Tamoxifen actually encourages Estrogenic activity, whereas in the breast tissue it significantly reduces the effects of Estrogen upon breast tissue. Because Tamoxifen impacts Estrogen activity differently dependent upon the area of the body, it is referred to as a Selective Estrogen-Receptor Molecule. It is highly effective at treating breast cancer, and the primary form of Hormone Therapy for

Vardenafil (Levitra) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 1st, 2018

What is Vardenafil? Vardenafil is one of the three primary Erectile Dysfunction medications available in the United States, and is sold under the brand name Levitra in the United States. In Italy, the product is known as Vivanza, and in India, it is known as Staxyn. How Does Vardenafil Work? Like its cousins, Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis), Vardenafil is what is known as a PDE5 Inhibitor. PDE5 Inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis by encouraging the relaxation of muscles within the organ which restrict blood flow, which leads to erection. What Causes an Erection? To put it simply, an erection occurs when blood flow is encouraged to the penis and blood outflow is restricted, producing a ballooning effect which leads directly to erection. Blood vessels leading to the penis, in the Corpus Cavernosum, dilate, which leads blood to enter the penis more quickly, and veins which draw blood away from the penis undergo vasoconstriction. In order for this process to take place, a man must experience stimulation which promotes the erection. When a man experiences stimulation, it encourages the manufacture of nitric oxide by the organ, which then dissipates out through the penis. Nitric oxide is a powerful

Testosterone Deficiency and Low-T at Epidemic Levels Among Men in the United States

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 28th, 2018

Medical professionals across the country have seen a boom in men that are looking for Testosterone Therapy Treatments in order to mitigate the effects of Low-T and Andropause. This is partially because of the increased social-awareness regarding the effects of Testosterone Deficiency, which include weight gain, loss of muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, and depression, but there is also some concern that the increased incidence of Low-T among aging men may also be the result of other factors, including Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals, Obesity, and other Lifestyle Issues which contribute to declining Testosterone Levels among the male population. One of the most well-known experts in Low-T Treatment is Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, who is the director of the LIFEFORCE Medical Institute, a Hormone Clinic in Chicago, Illinois, which specializes in the use of HRT Treatments such as Testosterone Therapy in order to improve health and wellness with aging. As medical science grows regarding the effects of Hormone Imbalance and Deficiency on the human body, medical clinics such as LIFEFORCE will become both more prominent and more important in our quest to maintain good health throughout our lives.
