Low testerone levels in men

Optimal levels are conducive to optimal health. Having good testosterone in your system decreases incidents of heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, high blood pressure. It has a beneficial effect in protecting against cardiovascular disease in every study. It decreases the instance of heart attacks because of its effect on blood vessels. It has a beneficial effect of improving your good cholesterol and lowering your bad cholesterol. It has a beneficial effect of improving all of the good lipoproteins and reducing all the bad lipoproteins.

I know this is an old post, but the bit about estrogen affecting fat distribution is very interesting to me. I’ve always stored fat in my middle, even as an otherwise-skinny tween. I’m very happy with my weight otherwise, but the disproportionate belly-bulge worries me health-wise (and vanity-wise, of course). I’ve always assumed this was either an annoying personal quirk or stress-related, but I never thought about it being a hormonal issue. Maybe I should get a hormone panel done. Have you found a good silver-bullet way to increase/balance estrogen, or is it just as incredibly complex as everything else in the human body? Let me guess… 😉

A 31-year-old man presenting with an 18-month history of sexual dysfunction resulting from severe adult-onset IHH (LH U/L, FSH U/L, T nmol/L). Initial therapy with 50 mg of clomiphene citrate (CC) three times a day for 7 days, with overnight LH pulse profiling and 9 am T levels evaluated at baseline and on completion. A 2-month washout period, followed by low-dose maintenance therapy (25-50 mg/d) for 4 months.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S):Baseline and stimulated T levels and LH pulsatility; effect on sexual function.
RESULT(S):Clomiphene therapy resulted in complete normalization of pulsatile gonadotropin secretion, serum T level, and sexual function. CONCLUSION(S):Isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism may result from an acquired defect of enhanced hypothalamic sensitivity to E-mediated negative feedback. Whereas direct T replacement therapy can further suppress endogenous gonadotropin secretion, treating IHH men with gonadotropins can stimulate endogenous T secretion and enhance fertility potential. On theoretical grounds, reversal of gonadotropin deficiency with CC might be expected to have a similar biological effect.

Hello my wife has been having these same symptoms. We Have tested for fibroids and also thyroid issues and everything has come back negative. We also have two small children and they do add stress. This has caused her libido to fall off. She also has breast tenderness almost all month long along with 7 – 10 day periods. He first question is how easy is it to measure progesterone? I heard that it can vary dramatically through out the month. Or could be normal but her estrogen could be too high. Also the potential side effects of taking a supplement or a drug could cause harm. What are the consequences of taking any kind of drug or supplement?
