Dr. Brad Eilerman answered:

My testosterone is 435.8?

Normal

Androderm
This testosterone is normal if Sex Hormone Binding Globulin is normal. If SHBG is extremely high, then free levels may be low, but that is extremely unlikely.

Dr. Jennie Law answered:

how to boost testosterone?

If mild,

Steroid_abuse
Consider these harmless lifestyle changes that can boost yor testosterone naturally: sleep hygiene to improve sleep quality and duration (even a few days of poor sleep can drop testosterone levels), lose weight, and optimize the treatment of any chronic disease you may have (uncontrolled illness can lower testosterone).

What secretes testosterone?

Specialized glands

Ovary
Brain signals regulateLeydig cells in the testes which secrete testosterone. In males, most of the testosterone is produced in the testes and a small amount is derived from the adrenal gland. In females, small amounts of testosterone are produced in the ovaries and derived from the adrenal gland.

Causes of low testosterone?

Sleep Deprivation

Open-uri20130318-27237-17e70ei
Besides aging, the two most common causes I see of secondary hypogonadism are sleep deprivation and vegetarianism. So, get a good night's sleep and eat meat.

Dr. Hanul Bhandari answered:

Can low testosterone cause rls?

Not likely

Restless_leg_syndrome
Per the literature, there is currently no obvious link between low testosterone levels and restless legs syndrome (RLS). RLS is linked to low peripheral ferritin and dopamine levels. If you are experiencing symptoms of RLS, it is recommended you consult a sleep medicine specialist to evaluate and treat it. Hope that answers your question!

Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

Can testosterone cause high bp?

If it's too high . .

Testosterone
Your own natural level of testosterone shouldn't affect your blood pressure. However, if you take supplemental testosterone to treat hypogonadism and your level is above what your body likes, then high blood pressure is a possible side effect, along w/change in mood for worse, hair loss, prostate enlargement, male breasts, excess blood count, decrease in HDL (good) cholesterol, etc.

Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

How low is too low testosterone?

You should decide

Testosterone
Just as what's too much for one person may not be enough for someone else, what's low testosterone for someone may be fine for someone else. Dr. Patel is absolutely correct re an association btwn low T & mortality. There are at least 6 or more observational studies showing this. But we do not yet have any randomized controlled trials demonstrating that giving someone T decreases mortality.

What can help low testosterone?

Vit D

Vitamin
Low T has many causes, but low vitamin D may be the easiest and most healthy option to correct it. The link between Vit. D and testosterone is not totally clear, but many individuals have low D that when addressed their T levels retrain to normal. Before just adding Vit D, have other causes for low T evaluated by your doctor. Additionally, adding muscle will improve T.
