Some experts say testosterone decline is a normal part of aging in men


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 14th, 2019

Older unhappy man drinking excessivelyA middle-aged guy goes to see his testosterone physician, he's complaining about a host of problematic symptoms, some are vague or general: He's tired all the time, and especially lethargic in the afternoon, feeling somewhat sad or depressed at time when it doesn't call for it, and he's feeling down about his libido -- a touch anxious concerning his general manliness. Would supplementing testosterone be a possible answer? Could he just require a steady boost of doctor monitored and prescribed testosterone replacement therapy? Testosterone being the vital androgen sex hormone produced by the adrenal glands and testicles, is essential for normal healthy function in both men and women. With respect to Testosterone, women produce about 15% to 10% of what a man produces. When testosterone declines, men can often feel it the most, because it can turn their lives upside down. These days, watching commercials from drug companies might lead you to believe that testosterone replacement could be just what you need, but researchers say it's unclear whether the issues associated with aging decreased sex drive, less energy, reduced muscle mass are the result of low testosterone or other factors. Often equated with youth, vigor, and strength, testosterone is responsible … Read more »

Judge cuts north Alabama steroids dealer’s sentence to probation


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 12th, 2019

FederalMOBILE, Alabama -- A federal judge in Mobile last week reduced a steroids dealers prison sentence to probation. Chief U.S. District Judge William Steele sentenced Ashley Dewayne Rivers in January to five months in prison for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids. But he agreed to a request by the U.S. Attorneys Office to change the sentence to five years probation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gina Vann, in a court filing, indicated that Rivers had provided prosecutors with "substantial assistance" in their case against co-defendant Dr. Mark Peter Koch. The Monroe County doctor, who pleaded guilty in the case, received a probation sentence last month. Vann's filing offers no details about Rivers cooperation. It asks that Steele reduce the defendant's sentence to five years probation. The motion for a reduced sentence came just hours after Steele had denied a request by defense attorney James Robinson to change the sentence to probation. Steele wrote in his order that he lacked jurisdiction to change the punishment. That had to come from the U.S. Attorneys Office. In his letter to Steele, Robinson asked that his client be allowed to serve his sentence on probation so that he could work and help … Read more »

Testosterone drives ego, reduces cooperation – Testosterone Prescription


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 9th, 2019

groupthink testosterone 300x300Testosterone drives egocentrism at the cost of cooperating with others, consequently affecting group decisions, a study reveals. Collective problem solving can provide benefits over individual decisions as we can share our information and experiences, said a new study from Wellcome Trust's Centre for Neuroimaging at the University College London. Now researchers have shown that the testosterone has the opposite effect - it makes people act less cooperative and more egocentric, the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B reported. Researcher Nick Wright and colleagues at the Centre for Neuroimaging carried out a series of tests using 17 pairs of female volunteers who had previously never met. The trial took place over two days, spaced a week apart, a university statement said. "When we are making decisions in groups, we tread a fine line between cooperation and self-interest: too much cooperation and we may never get our way, but if we are too self-orientated, we are likely to ignore people who have real insight," explained Wright. On one of the days, both volunteers in each pair were given a testosterone supplement; on the other day, they were given a placebo. Researchers found that as expected, cooperation enabled the group to perform … Read more »

The Secret to Guys’ Sex Appeal: Low Stress, High Testosterone, Strong Immunity


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

make body fit testosteroneWashboard abs and a chiseled jaw are a draw, but a recent study suggests it may be a man’s healthy immune system that really turns women on. That makes sense, since a strong immune system signifies a healthy guy — one who’s likely to survive long enough to pass his rugged genes to the next generation. But the more surprising thing is that women can apparently spot good immunity by looking at a guy’s face. The critical factor may be testosterone, the male hormone that has been associated with a man’s hardy, good looks. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, testosterone levels are not only linked with facial attractiveness but also with a strong immune system response. MORE: Why Fathers Have Lower Levels of Testosterone To figure out the complex relationship between hormones and hotness, researchers from Abertay University in the U.K. studied 74 Latvian men in their early 20s. They gave the men a Hepatitis B vaccine, which triggers the immune system to produce antibodies to fight the virus, and took blood samples before and after. Using the blood samples, researchers measured the men’s antibody levels, as well as levels of testosterone and the stress … Read more »

Treatment for male menopause


Posted 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


Posted 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 »
