Low Testosterone. What can a doctor do?

12

I wouldn’t do anything that would boost my testosterone until I got a test from a Doctor, you may be able to boost it up to the lowest normal at that time of day and not get supplemented.

Are you Native American? Do you eat very little? Anyone else in your family like you?

Are there any self-testing kits for hormones or anything? lol


Time to measure girth soon... previously 4.5", been targeting girth for months!

Thanks for all your replies guys!

I am 25 years old and the reason this has recently come to my attention is that from birth up till the age of 22 i was raised as a vegetarian. I always thought it strange why i didnt have much body hair and had a low sex drive but i recently read that soya, which most vegetarian foods are made from, contains estrogen!! i can’t help feeling that eating this stuff every day for 22 years as opposed to meat had a major effect on my biology and hormones. Especially during puberty.

Do you guys think this could be a contributing factor?

I’m not sure, Headshrinker. I’ve just finished reading “The Testosterone Syndrome,” by Eugene Shippen, MD. He actually recommends that men eat soy products because the estrogen-like compounds they contain can prevent real estrogen from binding to estrogen receptor sites, with the result being that the actual estrogen in our bodies is made less effective.

Good article, but focuses on girls and early puberty: http://www.lehigh.edu/bio/schneider/soy.htm

There’s also this:

Nor do isoflavones have any detrimental effects on male hormones. Dr. Messina explains, “A meta-analysis examined the relationship between soy/isoflavone intake and reproductive hormone levels in men. The study included 36 treatment groups and found no effects on total and free testosterone levels. By the way, three clinical studies also show no effects on sperm or semen.”

THere’s a lot of hype about the dangers of soy. It would be good to get a better handle on whether there’s any reasonable basis for it.

Animal fat = Testosterone production

Have you had a low fat diet most of your life?

How effective are “Test Booster” supplements, like Animal Test? I know my test levels are good, but I’ve often contemplated buying a test booster for weight training purposes. But, I’ve always stayed away because of concern that they were ineffective or dangerous (especially for someone who doesn’t need it).

If you are going to continue being vegetarian make sure your eating plenty of olive oil, no other kinds of cooking oils.

I have seen studies done that “prove” both sides of the soy debate. The only thing to do is perform your own study or look at others who are using whatever it is your curious about to help realize a good conclusion for yourself.

I am not sure if its from soy but the strangest guys I have seen in my life was vegetarian their voices sounded off for a man.

You’re probably smart to be concerned. Like I wrote above (or was it in that other thread) a really good way to boost your natural T is to do squats. If you start your workouts with a couple quick sets of squats, you’ll do better with whatever muscle group you’re focusing on.

An easy thing to do is to take zinc. Zinc inhibits estrogen and can make whatever T you have more effective.

Thanks for clearing that up Modesto.

I have heard that hosing off the balls with a very warm and a cold water (20 seconds of cold, and then 20 sec. Of very warm water, and then cold and warm, and on and on for few minutes daily) helps with boosting Testosterone. Is that true? Just a quick question.
