Behavior and Lifestyle Linked to the Effect of Declining Testosterone, Not Necessarily Natural Aging

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on August 1st, 2019

endocrine societyIt is common to believe that as men get older, their production of the "male hormone", testosterone, becomes less and less. That this is part of healthy aging, and the only way to keep up their hormone levels is to take supplements. A new study has found out that this is not necessarily the case. Aging itself does not result in lower testosterone levels. The drop is caused by changes in a man's behavior and health. The finding is controversial but interesting. The study was supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia and presented at the Endocrine Society's 94th Annual Meeting in Houston. The authors analyzed testosterone levels in more than 1,500 men. The measurements were taken five years apart, and all were sampled at the same time using the same method. The men used in the study ranged from 35 to 80 years old. Men who were taking medications or had conditions which affected their hormones were excluded from the study. Over the five years, testosterone levels did not decline significantly; only one percent per year. However, after analyzing subgroups of men, specific patterns began to emerge. For example, men who became obese or were … Read more »

testosterone side effects header11 620x206What is Testosterone? Testosterone is a steroid hormone which exists in many animals and also in humans. This hormone is generally produced in the testes of the male, and the ovaries of the female. The adrenal glands also produce a small amount of testosterone as well. Testosterone Replacement Treatment (TRT) There are various treatments for treating Testosterone like oral medications (seldom used), injections (the most common TRT), and cream or gels (the second most common form of TRT). Any individual who is suffering from Testosterone also needs to doubly understand the side effects and benefits that are caused by these treatments. While both men and women can be affected by Testosterone replenishment therapy, there are several factors, which can be considered before going ahead with the treatment of the same. If the female or the male patient has breast cancer or prostate cancer, then it is not a good fit for the individual to go in for a Testosterone therapy regimen. Consulting a medical practitioner for a counseling session before the treatment will be helpful to understand more about the treatment effects and the proper care which needs to be taken by the patient. If the patient has cancer, some … Read more »

Hormone Levels and Smoking — What You Can Do to Stop Smoking for Good!

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

cigarette smokeSmoking can have profound and disastrous effects on your health and wellness. Even with the increasing stigma surrounded by smoking cigarettes, it's still a widespread habit because it's so easy to get addicted and so hard to quit! Smoking leads to a significant increase in the risk of heart disease, lung cancer, oral cancer, and throat cancer, and it is also one of the leading causes of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Smoking also has an impact on your body's ability to maintain Hormone Balance, leading to further symptoms which diminish your quality of life. For one, Smoking increases levels of Cortisol in the bloodstream. Cortisol is one of the body's central stress hormones, responsible for dealing with immediate, acute stress. Cortisol levels are supposed to fall once the threat has passed. Chronically High Cortisol Levels lead to issues such as weight gain, diminished sex drive, insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, hypertension, and reduced immune capacity. While smoking doesn't have a significant impact on HGH Levels and may have a mildly positive effect on Testosterone Levels in the short term, the health impacts of smoking suppress the benefits of healthy Testosterone and Growth Hormone Levels.

BUSTED: Myths About Testosterone And Its Link To Sexual Desire In Men And Women

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on July 28th, 2019

mh muscular man working out in gym with dumbbellsTestosterone is often cast as the manly hormone, the chemical bestower of masculinity and the reason for men's high sex drives. But new research turns this conventional wisdom on its head. In healthy men, it turns out that testosterone isn't linked to sexual desire at all. And in women, high testosterone is actually associated with less interest in sex with a partner. Complicating the picture further, while high-testosterone women may be less interested in slipping between the sheets with a lover, high testosterone is linked to greater interest in masturbation in healthy women, according to research detailed online in May in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior. The findings are unique because most studies of sexual desire and hormones use either animal subjects or focus on people with abnormally low or high testosterone who come into clinics for treatment, said study researcher Sari van Anders, a behavioral neuroendocrinologist at the University of Michigan. Healthy individuals are rarely studied, van Anders told LiveScience. "People have argued that sex research focuses too much on dysfunction and pharmaceutical treatment as opposed to questions like pleasure or relationships or stress," van Anders said. "There is a whole scope of factors that go unstudied." Delving … Read more »

What is Hypopituitarism

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

doctor hgh specialistsHypopituitarism is a medical condition in which the pituitary gland is unable to produce hormones that are normally produced by the gland sufficiently. Several hormones are produced by the pituitary, and Hypopituitarism can refer to a deficiency in any individual hormone, as well as multiple hormones. This deficiency can be partial or total. Many forms of Hypopituitarism, especially Total Hormone Deficiencies, are quite rare, whereas other, partial, and age-related types of Hypopituitarism, are more common. What is the Pituitary Gland and Where is It Located? The pituitary gland is located at the base of the human brain, it is relatively small, but it performs vital functions necessary to maintain hormone homeostasis. The pituitary is around the size and shape of a lima bean. You can approximate the location of the pituitary gland by moving directly back from the nose to just behind the midpoint of the skull, right between the ears. Although the pituitary is quite small, it has an enormous amount of influence on the body, with its reach extending to nearly every organ and physiological process of the body. Procedures that the pituitary gland is directly involved in include reproduction, blood pressure, and growth. Hypopituitarism is a severe … Read more »

The Effect of Success on Testosterone Levels and Romantic Self-Perception

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

testosterone levels and competition 193x300While the effects of Testosterone on sexual function are well-known, studies regarding the social impact of Testosterone are more scarce. Testosterone has a powerful influence on psychological and emotional processing. Studies also show that the opposite is true—our circumstances, experiences, and the perception of our experiences also affect the volume of Testosterone that the male body produces. Scientists from Cambridge University recently published a study regarding the association between competitive success, Testosterone Levels, and sexual self-worth. The results suggested that when men compete, a man that perceives himself as the victor will experience an influx in Testosterone Production combined with increased confidence in their desirability to possible partners. The Influence of Victory On Testosterone The researchers designed a deceptively simple study which revolved around pairs of men competing against one another on rowing machines. Although the participants believed that the competition was honest, the rowing machines randomly selected a winner. Before the race, the men had their Testosterone Levels analyzed, and they also self-reported their assertiveness with women and their attractiveness. After the rowing competition was complete, the same variables were tested again. All participants were in their twenties, and there were 38 participants overall. Prior research has shown that … Read more »

Testosterone shown to help sexually frustrated women

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 31st, 2019

doctor female holding blue stethoscopeSeveral weeks ago, my column, Do you want better sex? struck a resounding note not only with female readers but also with many husbands who wish their wives to have fewer headaches. The general response was, Please write more about testosterone and how it can increase female libido. Testosterone, the male hormone, has been called the hormone of desire. In males, the Big T builds muscle for boys and ultimately turns boys into sexually well-functioning men. Women also produce testosterone during puberty, but only about one-tenth as much as males. Later in life, they produce less, and this is why some authorities believe women lose interest in sex. How do women know if they have less testosterone and therefore less tiger in the tank? There's good chance testosterone is lacking if they complain of little sexual desire, lack of energy, loss of height, decreased enjoyment in life, are sad or grumpy, fall asleep after meals and produce inadequate work performance. If the answer is yes to four of these conditions, there may not be enough big T. Women may lack this hormone for several reasons. In North America, 700,000 hysterectomies are done every year. The ovaries that produce estrogen and … Read more »
