Testosterone Deficiency leads to a whole range of symptoms that impair male wellness and deplete vitality, such as sexual dysfunction, increased body fat, reduced exercise capacity, depression, and more.

Similar to women, men also experience hormonal changes as a result of aging. Unlike women, who experience Menopause suddenly and somewhat abruptly, Andropause (the term for male menopause, also nicknamed Manopause) occurs slowly and gradually. The testes and adrenal glands produce high levels of Testosterone throughout adolescence and early adulthood, and Testosterone Levels fall into a state of depletion around the age of thirty. The decline is prolonged, only around 1-2% annually. Still, over the course of years and decades, Testosterone Levels can drop to a level that is … Read more »

The current study evaluated data from 64 men, mean age 73, with low testosterone enrolled in the Testosterone in Older Men with Mobility Limitation Trial. Participants in the trial were treated with 10 milligrams of testosterone in gel form or a placebo gel daily for six months. Cycle exercise tests conducted at the beginning and end of the treatment period provided measures of aerobic function, including peak oxygen uptake and gas exchange lactate threshold. The gas exchange lactate threshold is an excellent functional measure of the ability to do work over a prolonged period. The rate remained steady during the 6-month study in the testosterone-treated men but declined significantly (and to a greater-than-expected extent based on average measures) in the placebo-treated controls When the trial ended, men who received a placebo saw a drop in … Read more »

The medical, professional, clinical definition of hypogonadism is the reduction or absence of hormone secretion or other physiological activity of the gonads (testes). The Endocrine Society practice guideline has a similar definition: Hypogonadism in men is a clinical syndrome that results from failure of the testis to produce physiological levels of testosterone (thus androgen deficiency) and an average number of spermatozoa due to disruption of one or more levels of the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis.    In plain English, this means the decreased production of the critical male hormones that make men men…especially testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). This condition is sometimes given the moniker "low t."    Then more depressing news … Read more »

Low-T: Men With Low Testosterone Found More Likely to Die From COVID-19 AKA Coronavirus

Posted by Professor Anna Gray, Updated on June 14th, 2020

coronavirus and low testosterone 300x200As if getting the Coronavirus wasn't bad enough, especially if you're in the high-risk category already (high blood pressure, heart disease, smoker, respiratory issues or over 60 years old), now a German hospital has discovered that their male patients with low testosterone are succumbing to the virus's fatal attack more than their peers with normal testosterone levels. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the data collected on patients has revealed that men are twice as likely to die from COVID-19 as compared to women. The effect of low testosterone on men may be the reason behind this statistic. Testosterone and the Male Immune System Testosterone does not just play a role in a man's sexual health, as many people tend to think. This is a hormone that plays a role in many different processes and systems within the human body. One of these is the immune system, where testosterone plays an immunomodulatory role. The hormone has been observed modulating T-cell activation, and a 2016 study found that testosterone is associated with cytokine responses and mediates the body's response to various infections. Cytokines are tiny proteins that are secreted by certain cells of the immune system and are an essential part … Read more »

There have been questions about Testosterone about its safety, however. For one, there has been some evidence that suggests that Testosterone Replacement Therapy increases the risk of Prostate Cancer and other Reproductive Cancers. Based on new research published by The Journal of Urology, however, the risk of Prostate Cancer that has been previously associated with Testosterone Therapy is overstated, and may not increase the risk of the form of cancer at all. What is Hypogonadism, and How is Low-T Therapy Used to Treat Hypogonadism? Hypogonadism refers to any health issue that leads to reduced levels of Testosterone. Many men suffer from Primary Hypogonadism, a class of conditions in which the testes are not able to produce Testosterone to meet the needs of the body sufficiently.

A Disturbing Trend: Testosterone Levels Falling Even Lower in Adolescent Males

Posted by Professor Anna Gray, Updated on June 10th, 2020

young men showing low testosterone levels 300x283Low testosterone levels seen in adolescent and young males when their levels should really be the highest in their lifetimes The update on testosterone levels of young men in the United States for 2020 is in and it is not good news. A series of scientific studies were presented on May 15th at the American Urological Association 2020 Virtual Experience press conference and they displayed some interesting, but disturbing, findings. One of these studies involved 4,045 men (adolescents and young men) who were between the ages of 15 and 39 years. They all participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) and had their total testosterone levels measured over the time period between 1999 and 2016. Total testosterone is a measure of how much testosterone there is in the blood in both free and bound forms. Most of the testosterone is attached to two different proteins: albumin and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Other testosterone molecules travel around free in the bloodstream. Total Testosterone Levels Falling Over Time in Young Men The results of the data analysis showed that total testosterone was significantly lower in the young men who were part of the 2011-2016 group when compared to the … Read more »

Physiology of Testosterone

testosterone molecule 300x300Video Download: Physiology Of Testosterone Video Stream: Physiology Of Testosterone What is Testosterone? Testosterone is one of the many chemical messengers known as Hormones, and it is essential for the usual health and function of both men and women. However, the hormone is primarily associated with male wellness and development. Testosterone belongs to a specific class of hormones known as steroids. Most people think of steroids as hormones or chemicals that boost anabolic, muscle-building performance. Still, a steroid represents a molecule with a specific structure that is most commonly used to deliver messages and exert physiological changes in the body. Three common steroids are cholesterol, testosterone, and estrogen. In fact, the human body builds both Testosterone and Estrogen from a core of cholesterol, which is one reason why cholesterol is such an essential part of daily nutritional intake. Testosterone and Prenatal Development Testosterone is responsible for the development of primary male sex characteristics while the child is still in the womb. In the normal developmental cycle, Testosterone begins to affect the male fetus around seven weeks after conception. It encourages the formation of Leydig Cells, which are responsible for the production of Testosterone. After the fetus develops its own ability … Read more »
