What is the age in which hypogonadism in males needs to be taken seriously?

Treated after age 13: Usually boys aren't diagnosed with delayed puberty until they're at least 13. By the time they're 14, with little or no pubertal development, some may need a "jump start" with testosterone. It takes sometimes years to know if a boy is simply delayed or truly hypogonadal unless he has testicular failure. ...Read more

What is the age in which hypogonadism males should be taken for consult a physician?

Now!: What i mean is that if you think you have hypogonadism (low testosterone), there is no reason to wait for a specific age before asking your doctor to evaluate & treat you if appropriate. There are many reasons for younger men to develop hypogonadism & there is no reason to suffer nor risk worse health. So if you're worried, talk to your family physician now! ...Read more

What is the latest age you see a person having growth spurts in height and can that be as late as in the mid-30s?

What is the latest age you see a person having growth spurts in height and can that be as late as in the mid-30s?

Sometimes at 17-19yr: In order to have a late growth spurt in height, a young person's growth plates in the leg bones must still be open (not fused closed). Usually, any late growth spurts are at age 17-19, and tend to be genetically determined, so other relatives may show a similar growth pattern. Growth spurts after age 19 are very, very unusual (and certainly won't happen in the mid-30's). ...Read more

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?Can it be cured at the age of 20? Should masterbation be reduced ?

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?Can it be cured at the age of 20? Should masterbation be reduced ?

Testosterone : First, it is very rare for a man of 20 to have low testosterone. I would believe one hundred other possible diagnoses before i believed someone your age had low testosterone. Now, if you have damage to your scrotum and testes then we can have a conversation about this. Masturbation does not influence or diminish one's testosterone level. There are no health problems with masturbation. ...Read more

Dear doctor, are there chances of height growth after the age of 17 in females? Is there anything that can be done to increase the height?

Dear doctor, are there chances of height growth after the age of 17 in females? Is there anything that can be done to increase the height?

Slightly or none: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more

Is it medically possible to determine an exact year a person loss their teeth. and is their a test that can determine if the loss was drug related.

Exact year, No.: By looking on a radiographic image (x-ray) to see how the bone at the extraction site has healed a dentist could probably tell you of the extraction was within the last few months, the last 2-3 years, or a longer time ago. There is no test that will tell you exact year or if the cause was drug related. For these answers we need to ask the patient. ...Read more
