Primary vs. Secondary Hypogonadism in Men

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on June 16th, 2021

Video Download: Primary Vs Secondary Hypogonadism In Men Video Stream: Primary Vs Secondary Hypogonadism In Men Testosterone Deficiency, also known as Low-T, is one of the most common forms of Hormone Imbalance that affect the lives of men in America. Testosterone Deficiency is also known as Male Hypogonadism. Hypogonadism is just a fancy term that means that your sex organs are producing abnormally low levels of sex hormones. Hypogonadism can be separated into two categories: Primary and Secondary Hypogonadism. If diagnosed with Primary Hypogonadism, this means that the testes are functionally unable to produce enough Testosterone to meet the body's needs. Signals are being sent from the brain to produce Testosterone, but the signal doesn't lead to hormone production. Men with Secondary Hypogonadism, on the other hand, have perfectly functional testes, but aren't receiving sufficient stimulation from the Hypothalamus to produce Testosterone. Secondary Hypogonadism is usually related to the under-production of Sex Hormone Precursors Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH), both of which are critical to the production of Testosterone and Sperm. Which Form of Hypogonadism Is More Common? It is much more common for men to experience Secondary Hypogonadism than Primary Hypogonadism. Generally, the testes remain capable … Read more »

It also clearly reveals the after-effects of such efforts. Recent studies have explored the potential correlation between Testosterone Levels and Coronavirus. Many studies have shown that men with Low-T are more susceptible to Covid-19. Men with Testosterone Deficiency are more likely to experience severe complications from the disease, even when taking other competing factors into account.Turkish medical researchers provide new evidence that Covid-19 not only hits Low-T men harder but it also depletes natural Testosterone Production as a symptom of the condition. Previous studies have revealed that Testosterone has a strong supportive effect on the immune response of the respiratory system. Patients taking Testosterone Therapy are less likely to go to the hospital for COPD symptoms, for one example.Covid-19 More Dangerous for Men Than WomenThere's growing evidence that Testosterone Deficiency is a major risk factor for Covid-19 Hospitalization among men.

Building Muscle, Burning Fat, and Busting Myths

One of the more pernicious myths among Americans is that diet and exercise convert fat into muscle. While it's easy to imagine the thought process that leads to this conclusion, it couldn't be further from the truth. While similar lifestyle choices lead us to increase muscle mass and burn off fat, these changes occur due to separate mechanisms.Fat and muscle cells have different purposes and are structured entirely differently. Fat cells are specifically designed to store energy, and muscle cells are composed of protein and burn energy when used.Understanding Fat vs. MuscleThere are three categories of muscle. Skeletal Muscles are what most people imagine when they think of muscle. Skeletal muscles give us the ability to move voluntarily. They get stronger when we work out and allow us to lift more and use our bodies more gracefully. Smooth muscle is mostly located in the digestive tract to absorb nutrients and pass waste. Cardiac muscle is specially designed to meet the constant demands of the heart. Muscle is comprised … Read more »

Posted by Professor Anna Gray, Updated on June 13th, 2021

increased healthy fats could boost testosterone 300x200If you’re bordering on low testosterone levels (with the cut-off being less than 250 ng/dL medically), then it may benefit you to increase your (healthy!) fat intake to naturally boost your testosterone levels.

The reasons are unknown, but there are multiple theories including diet, lifestyle, endocrine-disrupting hormones in our environment and/or pesticides on our food. A recent study has found that changing your diet to incorporate more healthy fats may naturally boost your testosterone levels to a normal level if you are suffering borderline low testosterone.

Men With Low-T at Greater Risk of Deadly Covid-19 Complications

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on June 9th, 2021

Video Download: Men With Low T At Greater Risk Of Deadly Covid 19 Complications Video Stream: Men With Low T At Greater Risk Of Deadly Covid 19 Complications In order to effectively treat Covid-19, researchers and scientists have spent countless man-hours exploring the effects of the Novel Coronavirus on the immune system. It's clear that Testosterone is intricately involved in how men experience the disease. Testosterone has an important role in modulating the function of the immune system. Testosterone helps prevent the immune system from going into overdrive. This makes men slightly more prone to certain infections but dramatically less likely to suffer from autoimmune disorders than women. Covid-19 is slightly more infectious among men than women. This is not where the danger of Covid-19 lies, however. The majority of people infected by the novel coronavirus experience only minor symptoms or no symptoms. Cytokine Storm Contributes to Covid-19 Mortality Risk Think of Covid-19 as a virally transmitted autoimmune condition. The virus is deadly largely because it leads to Cytokine Storm. Cytokines are proteins that send signals for the immune system to go on the attack. In the case of Cytokine Storm, these proteins urge the immune system to go haywire. … Read more »

The Intersection of Testosterone, Body Fat, and Weight

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on June 9th, 2021

overweight and obesity 300x200As men get older, it becomes more difficult to stay in shape. It's common (and unfortunately natural, to a certain extent) for even relatively fit men to struggle to maintain their fitness as they get older. Hormone Imbalance is perhaps the most powerful contributing factor to age-related issues with body composition. While declining Growth Hormone Levels and Increasing Insulin Resistance can play a role, declining Testosterone Production creates a huge roadblock for men looking to get fit or stay fit. Video Download: The Intersection Of Testosterone Body Fat And Weight Video Stream: The Intersection Of Testosterone Body Fat And Weight Testosterone is a potent anabolic steroid that contributes to men's heightened basal metabolism. While women also produce Testosterone, the much higher volume of Testosterone produced by men is the primary reason why men tend to have a lower body fat percentage than women. Testosterone encourages the accumulation of lean muscle mass, which has high levels of fat-burning power.While it's true that Testosterone helps ward off body fat, all you have to do is look around you to see that Testosterone alone doesn't lead to male physical fitness. Excess body fat has a suppressive effect on Testosterone Levels that can have … Read more »

Evidence Suggests Testosterone Plays Powerful Role in Motivating Revolutionary Change

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on June 6th, 2021

Video Download: Evidence Suggests Testosterone Plays Powerful Role In Motivating Revolutionary Change Video Stream: Evidence Suggests Testosterone Plays Powerful Role In Motivating Revolutionary Change Testosterone has powerful effects on not only the human body but society at large. Testosterone is a highly psycho-active Hormone, and it changes the way that individuals both look at and interact with the world. One of the biggest ways that Testosterone changes our actions is that it encourages people to take bigger chances and engage in riskier behaviors. Often we think of risk-taking as a negative. It can make certain people more prone to drugs and alcohol, gambling, or other potentially problematic behaviors. But not all risk is bad. It also makes it easier for someone to go against the grain and stand against popular sentiment. Any challenge to authority involves a significant amount of risk, and Testosterone helps people overcome those risks and take aggressive stances that can not only change lives but change history! People Are Not Generally Prone to Taking Social Risks Human beings are naturally highly social creatures. It's much easier for us in general to hold accepted opinions than adopt new ones. In order for sociocultural changes to occur, someone … Read more »
