Can Men Safely Take Testosterone In Their 70s
Yes and no: Production of testosterone does begin to taper off in mid-life which can affect sex drive. But sudden or dramatic changes in libido are more likely to be caused by other things--both physical and emotional.

I read the drug Lupron (leuprolide) can be given to make young women grow taller. Will it also cause height to grow in adult women (over 35) if taken for IUIs?
Height is done by 25: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens.

Adult GH use: Hi. I treat adults with pituitary deficiency with growth hormone (GH); they generally feel better on it and restoration of normal levels has physiologic benefits. GH is used off label in non-deficient adults as a "fountain of youth" medicine; shown to be neither safe nor effective in this setting. Too much GH has well established risks.

How can men make their facial hair grow longer and faster? Any natural medicines that can be used?
Vitamins: I don't believe there is much you can do to make facial hair grow faster or longer. How much and how fast your facial hair grows is a genetic trade and you can't change it. Obviously, however, if you are having a problem in this area, you may need to have your doctor run some tests, such as thyroid studies or even hormonal studies, such as testosterone levels, etc. ...Read more
