Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on April 26th, 2021

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.

Both under this Government and its Labour predecessors, ministers (yes, usually men) seem to think that banging on … Read more »

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 … Read more »
