Testosterone Replacement Beneficial for Modern Men?

testosterone injection 300x200Testosterone Replacement Video Download: Testosterone Replacement Beneficial For Modern Men Video Stream: Testosterone Replacement Beneficial For Modern Men By Dr. Luigi Santorini Testosterone deficiency or androgen deficiency syndrome is a lot more common in people than the detractors of this vital hormone would have us believe. There are many websites and articles to be found in mainstream and scientific journals that claim Hypogonadism (an example being low testosterone, also called hypotestosteronemia) is a "general exaggeration" concerning marketers promoting the concept of "Is it Low-T?" However, for more than 100 years, research has been conducted using injectable testosterone shots on men. In more 10,000 studies on humans (men and women) that have been conducted with this primary androgen hormone, the results definitively prove Testosterone is vital to the health of men and women. The number of Testosterone prescriptions has climbed exponentially in the most recent decades, indicating this is no fly-by-night medical treatment fad. Testosterone Popularity Started in the 1950s Testosterone was first being given to patients in significant numbers during the 1950s; it has, since that time in the middle of the last century, continued to rise in popularity. For a straightforward fact, replenishing testosterone when there are actual clinical … Read more »

Treatment for male menopause

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on September 17th, 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 Injections For Women: Benefits & Side Effects

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Most of us know that testosterone is a male steroid hormone of the androgen group, but women secrete and need testosterone too (they release about 15% the amount men do). It is secreted in the testes of men and in the ovaries of women, and to a smaller degree from the adrenal glands. In men it is basically important for the development of reproductive organs and maintaining male characteristics and health. Apart from its natural production it can also be injected, when it is used as a mode of treatment for various problems associated with hypogonadism. Testosterone Injections for Women With recent medical advances, testosterone injections for women have also been developed for counteracting some complications that arise in them when deficiency is present. We deal here with the effects of testosterone injections for women both positive as well as negative. Before jumping into the effects of the testosterone injections for women, we need to know why it is needed. Often, it is because the amount of testosterone produced within women are one seventh to that produced in men and that number declines with age in some women more than others. Also, once women reach menopause the level of testosterone … Read more »

Testosterone Injections – Testosterone Injections for Men

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Testosterone is a steroid hormone found in animals. In humans, it is secreted in the testes of male, ovaries of the females and the adrenal glands. Besides being important for good health, it is responsible for the secondary sexual characteristics like the growth of body hair, deepening of voice and increased muscle and bone mass in men. Although testosterone is present in both men and women, men secrete about ten times as much testosterone as women. While testosterone levels vary from person to person, it is known to decline gradually with age. In such cases, some people resort to replacement therapy in the form of testosterone injections among others. Medically, testosterone injections are used mostly by men and boys to correct the conditions caused because of lower levels of this hormone in their body. It treats conditions like hormonal imbalances, impotence and delayed puberty in boys. It is also oftentimes used to treat breast cancer in women. Testosterone injections are normally given at low doses as long as needed. The duration of the injection therapy depends on what is being treated or desired as the result. To keep the testosterone levels steady, the medication is usually prescribed once or twice … Read more »

Treatment for Hypogonadism with Testosterone Injections

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on March 20th, 2016

Many people have general misunderstandings about the term hypogonadism, thinking it's just a fancy term for low testosterone, but actually it's a broad name for a class of dimnished function in the gonads (testes in men and ovaries in woman). There are numerous variations of hypogonadism, with really long tongue-twisting names, for example: hypergonadotropic, hypogonadotropic and isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Another descriptive diagnosis for low testosterone is Androgen Deficiency Syndrome or hypoandrogenism.  Androgen Deficiency more accurately described is a medical disease associated with problematic or diminished androgen functionality. This being said, it is not inaccurate to clinically diagnose testosterone deficiency as hypogonadism, in the same way it is not inaccurate to diagnose skin, breast, or brain cancers, as simply cancer. This being said however, there are much more precise sub classes of hypogonadism, but for the purposes of this article we are going to simply deal with the best ways of treating low testosterone. Among the differing types of treatments for the low testosterone variety of hypogonadism or androgen deficiency syndome, injectable testosterone is one of the best solutions. This is because compared to testosterone cream and gels, which are applied daily, testosterone injections can be done once every several days. Creams and gels can be cumbersome for … Read more »

Risk of Testosterone Injections | eHow

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Follow Testosterone injections consist of synthetic testosterone, which is used medically to treat hypogonadism. These injections can result in detrimental side effects, and patients suffering from certain pre-existing conditions should not take testosterone shots. The testes of human males produce testosterone, a hormone that plays an integral role in proper sexual development and sperm production. Testosterone also triggers anabolic (tissue-building) effects, increasing bone density and promoting muscle growth. Doctors can prescribe pharmaceutical testosterone for patients suffering from hypogonadism, a condition that can result in lessened libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, memory and concentration problems, lower muscle mass and bone density, and deterioration in mental health and overall well-being. Regular injections of testosterone can alleviate these problems. Patients with pre-existing prostate cancer or male breast cancer should not take testosterone injections. Also, those suffering from diabetes or who have a history of liver, heart or circulatory disease should consult their doctor before taking testosterone. Testosterone use can result in peliosis hepatis, a sometimes fatal condition. Patients taking testosterone may also experience an alteration of blood serum cholesterol levels, which may cause clotting problems, arteriosclerosis, congestive heart failure and stroke. Some patients have reported allergic reactions ranging from rashes, swelling and hives to … Read more »

Testosterone Injections – Elite Men’s Guide

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Aging, Testosterone Testosterone injections deliver testosterone into the muscle. The testosterone is then absorbed directly into the blood stream over time. The absorption period depends on the type of testosterone injected. Injections usually take place in the thighs, glutes or deltoid muscles. Read on to learn about the most common forms of injectable testosterone, therapeutic dosages, pros and cons of testosterone injections, and injection demonstration resources. The most common forms of injectable testosterone for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) include testosterone enanthate (TE) and testosterone cypionate (TC). Testosterone enanthate and testosterone cypionate are modified forms of testosterone. Specifically, a carboxylic acid ester has been added to the 17-beta hydroxyl group. This attachment makes TE and TC less polar than free T. As a result, they have longer half-lives and are absorbed more slowly from the injection area. Once in the bloodstream, the ester is removed to yield free (active) T. Due to their long half-lives, both TE and TC provide a sustained release of testosterone into the bloodstream for one to two weeks. As a result, testosterone injections of TE or TC need only be administered every week or every other week. Half-Lives of TE and TC Testosterone enanthate possesses a … Read more »

Testosterone Injections for Men – Men’s Hormonal Health

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 25th, 2018

Testosterone injections aren't generally discussed as a first line treatment option when starting testosterone replacement. There are many androgen preparations on the market such as; gels (Androgel and Testim), creams, pills (Andriol), pellets and patches. However the marketing efforts of pharmaceutical companies are quite effective at influencing your doctor's prescribing habits away from the older and more effective (testosterone shots/injections). What's sad to say... they are all inferior to the much older technology of testosterone injections, IM (intramuscular) when treating hypogonadism. It's not what you'd generally think is supposed to happen. Isn't medical science supposed to come out with newer and better products? The thing is... not everyone loves needles. Understandably so. So in lieu of this, we have many alternatives that have very poor absorption, leading to less efficacy and worse outcomes. What's the point? Why use a less invasive method if it's barely going to work? There are limited testosterone side effects. They allow for higher and more stable testosterone levels, and are 5-10 times cheaper! All the other testosterone formulations are self-limiting in how much testosterone can be absorbed. They may be enough to get you to the mid range of normal. For a lot of men, … Read more »

Are you sure that there is something available that can jumpstart my natural production?The urologist I talked to told me that there is nothing that he is aware of that will speed up the process and that I could be waiting 4-6 months, at a minimum, before my natural production begins to function again.I have been doing lots of reading on the internet about this condition and I've come across some discusion of certain chemicals that are used by steriod using bodybuilders to get there natural production to restart.Unfortunately, I've also come across several scientific articles which explain that these chemicals do not actually work as the bodybuilders believe they do.I wish I could find someone who really knows the facts about this and would appreciate a response from anyone with good, concrete knowledge of the subject.If there is such a drug that will help jumpstart my natural production, then please let me know what it is, so I can look into it.I have scheduled an appointment with an endocrinologist next week and I assume that he will be able to answer most of my questions at that time, but until then, I am desperate for some information, so please … Read more » – Proper Injection and Dosing …

Proper Injection and Dosing Procedures - Videos Learning how to inject testosterone is something that makes a lot of men extremely nervous. The idea of piercing their skin with a sharp needle isn't very appealing, and the thought can make even the toughest man a bit weak in the knees. Fortunately, it's actually a very simple process.

Happy Mondays Star Shaun Ryder Needs Testosterone Injections To Stay Alive

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Happy Mondays And Black Grape Frontman Shaun Ryder Can't Survive Without Quarterly Testosterone Injections. The singer tells Britain's NME magazine he must receive "a testosterone injection once every three months" or he will "drop dead". Ryder explains he has to resort to extremes because he has no thyroid, but he actually looks forward to his season jabs - because they give him a burst of energy. He says, "It (injection) makes me feel like I'm 21 again. I'm serious! I've got no thyroid. I have to take 150 micrograms of a thyroid replacement drug daily and the testosterone injections." His big reveal comes just days before Ryder reunites Black Grape for a fundraising gig in the band's native Manchester, England to benefit dancer/singer Bez's All Star Reality Party election campaign. The gig also coincides with the 20th anniversary of the band's debut album It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah. Bez, real name Mark Berry, will not actually join his former bandmates onstage.

Testosterone Injection – SteroidAbuse .com

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

As it pertains to a testosterone injection a common question often revolves around the dosage. If youre new to anabolic steroids this can be a little confusing, after all, there are multiple forms of testosterone each dosed in its own unique way. Even for the seasoned individual who is accustomed to a regular injection of testosterone is often misguided in his methods especially when it comes to dosing; we can largely thank the multitude of bad information floating around the web for this problem. To be frank, there isnt a set one size-fits-all dose that will meet everyones needs but we can establish guidelines and parameters to follow. For the individual who has been prescribed hormone replacement therapy (HRT) if he receives a regular testosterone injection as part of this treatment, generally 250mg will be the max dose given, although a dose of 100mg-200mg every 7-14 days is a far more common testosterone injection for the HRT patient. In the U.S. users will generally be prescribed testosterone-cypionate or testosterone-propionate and the total injection dose will be based on the milligrams provided by the particular testosterone being used taking into account the half-life and then determining total dosing levels to meet … Read more »
