Not likely to change: There is a use it or lose it issue that seems to happen, if you totally abstain from sexual activity, you may lose interest, but that is not necessarily the same as lowering your testosterone.

Tofu and soy products can have an estrogen-like effect and decrease Dht production. Some shellfish like oysters & mussels may stimulate Dht production. Raw onions and garlic are beneficial for vascular health & thus are probably good for Dht production. ...Read more
Underlying cause: How much is your globulin level? What symptoms do you have? Who told you that you need to decrease your globulin level?

No: Mycophenolate is not a noteworthy cause of megaloblastic changes in the blood. If your MCV is below 100, i would not be concerned. If your MCH is only silghtly above the reference range, again i would not give this another thought -- reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside at either end. If other parameters (i.e., mcv) are way off, seek another cause. ...Read more
What do you mean....: By low. Eosinophils are not terribly abundant to begin with, and most problems that arise related to eosinophils occur because of having too many, not too few. Their normal function in the immune system is to fight parasitic infection. Elevated eos are characteristic of atopic (allergic) conditions and a few other pathological states such as loefflers syndrome and adrenal insufficiency. ...Read more

One that doesn't: Quite a few web pages state that caffeine consumption causes a drop in serotonin. Not true- caffeine works directly on adenosine receptors. It also leads to increased dopamine action, producing a sense of pleasure that may account for much of the appeal of caffeine drinks. Over-reliance on caffeine can cause problems but decreased serotonin is not one of them. ...Read more

May not need to: Lab testing isn't "one size fits all." a lab may list 1.2 as the "upper limit of the reference range", but a muscular patient can and should have a higher level. When i was lifting daily, my creatinine stayed at 1.6, and an elite bodybuilder's is likely to 2.0 or so. The level itself doesn't make you sick; it's just one piece of information to tell whether there's kidney disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
