Treatment for male menopause


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 7th, 2019

Older unhappy man drinking excessivelyLike many men over 50, Chuck Mitzelfeld felt himself slowing down. He blamed the 60-plus-hour work weeks he puts in as a chiropractor. "After I turned 50, I just felt tired all the time," he said. While Chuck was helping others heal, he was feeling his zest for life slipping away. "I felt that it was probably because of stress and possibly even depression." Chuck was experiencing a common symptom many men his age go through: male menopause or "man-o-pause," a dramatic drop in testosterone levels as men age. "In a way, our bodies are like a car. Both need a little help as they age, but don't slam on the brakes. A doctor can help you get it in gear and get back on the road again." "More doctors should be looking for it," said Dr. Jerry Singer, a Wellington urologist.  "Only about 10 percent of men who have a low testosterone level are actually being tested. Singer says he'll test patients for low testosterone when they complain about feeling fatigued, depressed or have lost their libido. The treatments include injections, a gel, or a patch. "So it's not just a male problem, by the way; it's a couple of problems … Read more »

Testosterone levels seen prior to birth in fetus’ fingers, jawline


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 6th, 2019

male finger lengthA close look at a newborn's hand can show much testosterone the child was subjected to while in the womb, new research has found. A child’s index finger to the ring finger ratio plays a role in the shape of a face – and it can be seen even before a boy hits puberty. Digit ratio is non-invasive and easy to measure and has the potential to provide clues about an individual's prenatal history. Research: The study found that if the index finger is the same size or longer than the ring finger, the child is more likely to have a narrower chin and a more feminine face The research found that if the index finger is the same size or longer than the ring finger, the child is more likely to have a narrower chin and a more feminine face. But if the index finger is shorter, the boy’s face will be rounder and have a more masculine look. Researcher Sonja Windhager, an anthropologist at the University of Vienna, told LiveScience: 'The overall shape patterns associated with high and low digit ratios depicted in our sample of boys closely resemble the ones found for adult men'. She added: 'In … Read more »

Can men have hot flashes?


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 6th, 2019

testosterone replacement therapyDEAR DOCTOR K: I'm a 75-year-old man who recently underwent prostate cancer surgery. I've begun to have what I think are hot flashes. I'm baffled because I felt hot flashes were a female problem. Could I have male hot flashes? DEAR READER: In short, the answer is yes. As with hot flashes in women, sex hormones are to blame. Women get hot flashes at menopause when their estrogen levels drop. In men, the problem is testosterone, a type of hormone called androgen. More specifically, declining testosterone levels can lead to hot flashes in men. In women, estrogen levels drop dramatically after age 50. But for men, declining testosterone levels start as early as age 30 and slowly fall throughout a man's life. By age 70, more than half of men are testosterone-deficient. This deficiency is responsible for menopause-like symptoms in some men, and these can include hot flashes. It's difficult to predict which men will have these symptoms, though. Some men with what appear to be low levels of testosterone don't have symptoms, although many men with low testosterone levels have hot flashes. And some men with what appear to be normal levels do have hot flashes. So the correlation … Read more »

What Causes Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 5th, 2019

dark circles under mans eyesIt is often claimed that periorbital dark circles are caused by tiredness or working too hard or even just staying up late. While this can be true, the truth is that your genes play a considerable role here. So what exactly is happening when you get dark circles under or around your eyes? Simply put, periorbital dark circles are a result of the thin layer of skin below your eyes, showing the blood vessels and the blood they contain more clearly than anywhere else on your body. (For reference, this skin around your eyelids, called periorbital skin, is on average about 0.5 mm thick compared to an average of about 2 mm thick on most of the rest of your body.) Now, as you may or may not already know, the reason veins often look blue isn't that the blood inside them is blue; it's because your skin/subcutaneous tissue only lets blue/violet wavelengths of light pass through it. As a result, only blue light is reflected, and the veins look, well, bluish. (Veins often won't appear blue if a person has darker or lighter skin. Instead, the veins tend to appear green or brown. On the other hand, people with … Read more »

Testosterone cream in a cupThe male hormone testosterone has become an unlikely drug of choice for Wall Street traders seeking to give themselves an edge over their professional rivals. New York clinics have reported a rise in treatment for 'testosterone deficiency,' sometimes known as 'andropause.' They say many workers in the male-dominated industry are hoping that boosters of the hormone will help them perform better at work and put in longer hours. Under pressure: New York clinics have reported a rise in demand for treatment for testosterone deficiency from Wall Street high-flyers Upper West Side osteopath Lionel Bissoon, who now specializes in 'integrative medicine,' says he first noticed the demand for testosterone replacement therapy when the financial crisis hit. He told the Financial Times: 'Since the recession started, more guys want to be on top of their game.' High demand: New York doctor Lionel Bissoon says 90 percent of his patients work in finance Ninety percent of his patients, he revealed, hold senior positions in the finance industry and are typically in their thirties or forties. 'All of these men are under tons of stress, and stress will reduce their levels of testosterone,' he said. 'As one patient told me: "There’s a whole bunch … Read more »

Testosterone for Men


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 3rd, 2019

testosterone blue keyThe androgen Testosterone, called the "male sex hormone," is created primarily by the testes and to a lesser extent the adrenal glands. In the womb, testosterone is needed for the development of the male sexual organs, and during puberty, it is necessary for the growth of male genitalia, along with the deepening of the voice and growth of pubic hair. Testosterone is also vital for the development of muscle mass and ensuring the fat percentage is optimized in the less than 15% body fat range. Testosterone Levels Decline with Age Once you hit the age range of 25 to 30, your levels of testosterone will begin to decline, resulting in simple layperson's terms: Low Testosterone levels also called hypogonadism, low t or andropause. Hypogonadism requires low t physician evaluation, and for you to have blood tests conducted and if a deficiency exists, it is usually recommended to replace your deficient t levels. Since testosterone affects the bones, muscles, nervous system, and prostate, you may notice a decline in your energy, health, and sexual function as your body produces less testosterone. It explains why men become more feminine as they get older and why in the end stages of human life … Read more »
