Testosterone Replacement Therapy provides heart protection

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 17th, 2019

team of medical researchers 300x200Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) provides heart protection for men with hypogonadism (low testosterone) You have probably heard the warning that testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has been linked to increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. These warnings come from radio and television commercials from law firms and sound something like this: “If you have suffered a heart attack after receiving testosterone therapy, please contact the law firm of ___ for a free, no-obligation consultation.” That sounds ominous and urgent. But is it true? Are these dire warnings about the risk of testosterone  based on medical facts? Or are they the product of hyperbole from a profit-seeking team of litigious attorneys? A recent study concludes that contrary to causing cardiovascular problems, testosterone actually protects from such events. The review below provides the facts. NEW ORLEANS — Low testosterone is associated with increased all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, and testosterone replacement therapy in men with a confirmed diagnosis of hypogonadism (low testosterone levels) is associated with reduced cardiovascular (CV) events and CV death, according to a speaker at the Androgen Society 2nd Annual Meeting. “Testosterone deficiency is a risk factor for cardiovascular events and death,” T. Hugh Jones, MBChB, MD, FRCP, honorary professor … Read more »

Male Fertility Myths and Misunderstandings Resolved

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 16th, 2019

magical thinking is not always right 300x164There has always been a lot of magical thinking about fertility. Everyone thinks that they understand the birds and the bees, but when it comes down to it, pretty much every person has at least a couple of dangerous misconceived notions about fertility. In this article, we'll correct some common fertility myths, provide helpful information, and clear the air about male fertility! Having Sex Every Day Doesn't Greatly Improve Fertility It is commonly held that to maximize the odds of pregnancy couples need to have sex every single day. While this can be fun for many couples, it's important to understand two factors: The Lifespan of Sperm and the Fertility Window. First, because sperm can survive in a woman's body for 2-3 days, the rule of thumb is that having sex every other day is sufficient to keep high volumes of active sperm ready for impregnation. Second, the fertility window is the period which you should be most concerned with maximizing sexual contact. Having sex during the five to six days before ovulation provides the highest odds of fertilization by far. Visual Assessment of Ejaculate is a Poor Indicator of Fertility It's a commonly held belief that if a man's … Read more »

Low T – My life was falling apart because I had low testosterone

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 16th, 2019

low testosterone diagnosis 300x200Low T Story I stood next to my bags on the sidewalk, looking down at the ground. Humiliated and confused. As my parents pulled up in front of my dormitory, I picked up my stuff and carried it over to the truck, shuffling awkwardly from the exertion as 30 lbs of foreign body fat tried to squeeze its way out of my clothes. I smelled funny, I was a sweaty, an anxious mess, and I had no idea what was wrong. 24 hours earlier, my academic dean explained to me how medical leave works. You simply take a year off from school to address a medical issue, then return when you're feeling better. Sounds simple enough. I sure as hell wasn't feeling great, and I had no idea why. Heck, I was damn near non-functional, spending most of my time holed up in my dorm room, depressed and lonely. I was missing homework assignments and skipping class. And it wasn't because I was some wanna be cool kid truant that I felt the need to skip class. It was as if my body and brain were broken. I found out I had low testosterone (hypogonadism) or Low T, by getting … Read more »

Co-sleeping with baby drops men’s testosterone levels

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 15th, 2019

baby 22194_640 300x200   A new study shows that its not only women's bodies that adapt to parenthood: fathers who sleep next to their tot show dips in their levels of testosterone, which researchers say is good for the baby. In prior researcher, study author Gettler (currently of the University of Notre Dame in the US state of Indiana) and his colleagues found that when men become fathers, their testosterone levels drop and the more involved dads were in caring for their children, the more significant their drops in the hormone. A new study suggests that men's bodies make adjustments to better adapt to child rearing. AFP/Relaxnews After taking saliva samples before and after sleep, they found those who shared a bed with junior had dips in their testosterone levels in the evening. The researchers also took testosterone samples in 2005 and 2009, and they found that dads who dozed next to their child had a third less testosterone than before, compared to dads who slept separately. While high testosterone levels have been linked to aggression, extroversion, and risk-taking, lower testosterone levels are good for parenthood. Drops in testosterone have been connected to fathers responsiveness to their children, wrote the study authors. The … Read more »

How to Get Bigger Arms

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 10th, 2019

How to Get Bigger Arms   When someone asks you to "make a muscle" the first thing most people do is flex their bicep. Since your arms are always on display, it is essential to develop the proper routine to get the size you crave. When developing an arm-blasting routine always keep in mind a few facts about arm anatomy. First, remember that while the bicep is the "show-off' muscle, the tricep comprises two-thirds of your upper arm measurement.  DO NOT make the beginner's mistake of overworking the biceps and neglecting your triceps. Second, focus on the basic exercises. Chin-ups, barbell curls, and cable preacher curls should be the main focus of your biceps effort. For triceps, close-grip bench press using both a standard and reverse grip, reverse grip press-downs, and skull crushers are a solid foundation to build on. Isolation movements such as triceps kickbacks and dumbbell concentration curls play a role and can be added. But if your focus is mass-building, isolation movements should only be used occasionally. Third, don't neglect your forearms. Earlier, we mentioned that your arms are always on display. This goes double for your forearms. A firm handshake is critical for making an excellent first impression. Also, many of … Read more »

Testosterone Therapy Reduces Mortality Risk Among Diabetics Even When Accounting for Improvements in Cardiovascular Risk Factors

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 9th, 2019

young doctor with a beard 200x300For men, Testosterone Replacement Therapy confers some fantastic benefits. While there was a time not so long ago where Bio-Identical Testosterone was thought to have potentially adverse severe risks, recent research continues to provide increasing evidence that Testosterone Treatments are quite safe and provide excellent benefits for men nationwide struggling with Low-T. While Testosterone was first used in adults for those struggling with low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and fatigue, the range of patients that are believed to potentially benefit from Testosterone Restoration continues to broaden. A recent study published by BJU International provides evidence that Testosterone Replacement Therapy is highly beneficial for patients dealing with the effects of Type-2 Diabetes. Testosterone is increasingly prescribed to men struggling with Type-2 Diabetes because the condition can lead to severe disruption of Testosterone Production. One of the objectives of this study was to differentiate whether the health benefits of Low-T Treatment are associated with a healthier cardiovascular system or some other factor or confluence of factors. Does Testosterone Benefit Patients with Type-2 Diabetes? It's been hypothesized that Bio-Identical Testosterone can mitigate mortality risk among males with Type-2 Diabetes. This study provides evidence pointing toward that hypothesis, but it also appears to rule … Read more »

Escitalopram is a commonly prescribed antidepressant that also goes by many other brand names, including Cipralex and Lexapro. Escitalopram belongs to a class of antidepressant medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and is FDA approved for the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder, both conditions which are most often associated with abnormally low levels of Serotonin in the bloodstream. SSRIs like Escitalopram prevent Serotonin from being reabsorbed as quickly, allowing them to remain active in the space between neurons for a more extended period. This medication is approved for patients twelve years of age or older. Escitalopram and Citalopram Escitalopram (Lexapro) is a stereoisomer of another medication known as citalopram (Celexa), meaning that the molecular configuration of the two compounds are identical, except they are mirror images of one another. Escitalopram is known as an S-Stereoisomer, which references its configuration from a standardized position. Pharmaceutical Uses of Escitalopram (Lexapro) In the United States, Escitalopram (Lexapro) is approved for Generalized Anxiety … Read more »
