What are typical testosterone levels in old men?

What are typical testosterone levels in old men?

Lower than young men: I know, not the answer you wanted, but it's true. When looking at large groups of men, older men tend to have lower t levels than younger men. But there are also some older men w/higher t than some younger men & vice versa. Normal reference ranges also depend upon lab, equipment used & test ordered. Individual results vary w/time of day. More important than typical t level is how you feel.

Could risperidone affect testosterone levels in men?

Could risperidone affect testosterone levels in men?

No but....: Risperdal is infamous for increasing prolactin. Prolactin in turn reduces sex drive and performance. In very high doses, elevated prolactin will lead to abnormal periods (women), and breast development / even milk production. Easy to get lab - fasting morning level.

What can cause low testosterone levels in men?

What can cause low testosterone levels in men?

Pituitary or testes?: In general, one can think of low testosterone as either being due to dysfunction in the pituitary ("master gland"), or the testes themselves. Checking pituitary hormones (prolactin, lh, fsh) can distinguish between these two categories, and let your doctor determine whether scanning is needed. Illness and narcotic drugs will alter pituitary function, while alcohol injures the testes to cause low t.

Can taking the supplement TAURINE in a 3 gram dose raise testosterone levels in men?

Can taking the supplement TAURINE in a 3 gram dose raise testosterone levels in men?

Definitely maybe!: As far as I can tell, this has not been researched in humans so no one really knows. There is evidence taurine raises testosterone in rats, but that does not mean it will do so in humans; the doses used were equivalent to 15 grams/day but lower amounts may help. However, Taurine has many other proven benefits. See https://www. Anabolicmen. Com/taurine-testosterone/ and http://tinyurl. Com/hpdlzgl

Can low testosterone level s be increased in young men of age around 20 or medicines are to be taken throughout life? Will I be normal again ever?

Can low testosterone level s be increased in young men of age around 20 or medicines are to be taken throughout life? Will I be normal again ever?

Levels: It is important that testosterone levels be assessed on 2 separate occasions early in the morning. Treatment will depend on those levels. Testosterone replacement is not without its risks, with fertility being a serious concern in a young man. A visit with a doctor familiar with trt and male fertility is recommended.

How much do testosterone levels vary in young men throughout the day. Should the levels always stay in the "normal" range. Free testosterone blood test was low but at 3:30pm, had two tests both low.

How much do testosterone levels vary in young men throughout the day. Should the levels always stay in the "normal" range. Free testosterone blood test was low but at 3:30pm, had two tests both low.

Vary throughout day: It varies throughout the day. We want to measure your peak level when evaluating for low testosterone. Lab draw should be before 10 am. If the level come back low, you need to find out the cause before jumping to treatment.

Is it true that men with higher testosterone levels have more sex?

No: No relationship as there's a wide range of normal for testosterone. What's important is what's normal for you. There's no reason to seek bragging rights for testosterone. However, what's low t for one person might be just fine for someone else. In that case, guy w/lower t might have less sex drive. Don't forget barry bonds - too much t can be converted into Estradiol which can shut down libido.

Do men have depression less frequently than women because of higher testosterone levels? I've read low testosterone can cause depression?

Do men have depression less frequently than women because of higher testosterone levels? I've read low testosterone can cause depression?

Not only T: testosterone is part of it. Makes man active, leaders often and looking forward to work or create. Women do too, but depression is more likely for many reasons., not only lower T.

How can low testosterone levels affect a man's livelihood?

How can low testosterone levels affect a man's livelihood?

Another tricky Q: By livelihood I assume you mean salary or some productivity measure at work. Earlier this year, my cousin pointed out that wall street traders were looking for t supplementation to boost their performance (http://bit. Ly/xqjexf). A few years ago, a study purportedly demonstrated that t affects risk taking behavior in wall street traders. In sum, low t might decrease (work) performance.

Is testosterone level - 4, 3 ng/ml (ref. 2, 5 — 10, 3) concidered average or low? I'm 28 years old. What T level at this age should have a healthy man?

Is testosterone level - 4, 3 ng/ml (ref. 2, 5 — 10, 3) concidered average or low? I'm 28 years old. What T level at this age should have a healthy man?

What's normal: As you can see the normal range for testosterone is quite broad. Typically T levels are highest at 8am in the morning and that is the proper time for it to be checked. This is due to normal hormonal circadian rhythm. As long as the T level is within the normal range it is typically normal. Symptoms consistent with low t level include decreased sex drive, decreased morning erections and ED.

Is there treatment for low testosterone levels in 70yo man?

Is there treatment for low testosterone levels in 70yo man?

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: As long as appropriate screening for latent prostate cancer is performed, then older men can safely take it if they need it. Interestingly, there are new studies that suggest safety in localized cancer w/low gleason scores during active monitoring but this should definitely be discussed w/your uro-oncologist. But final answer is yes, men of any age w/low t can be treated safely w/benefit.
