No: No, no effectGet a more detailed answer ›
Since spironolactone is a testosterone blocker, would that be bad for the body or decreases testosterone level.
Does not lower level: Spironolactone is not a "testosterone" blocker per say. It designed to block aldosterone receptors from being activated. It is not perfect and does have some anti-masculine side effects (gynecomastia). If a doctor prescribed your medication for blood pressure control, prior heart attack, heart failure, or liver disease it is more likely to make you live longer and better than not. ...Read more
If i was taking 200mg of spironolactone when I have my lab work done, would that affect the bun and creatinine level? Would it make it higher or lower
Likely no effect,,,: This is a potassium sparing diuretic and is a weak diuretic other than this function. This and other diuretics should not have an effect on BUN and creatinine as these are based on amounts in the blood and creatinine is recovered by the kidney and so depend on renal function. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is in fact a very mild diuretic and anti-hypertensive - except when aldosterone is abnormaly high. In endocrinology we exploit a side property which is blockade of testosterone action on the skin - used for hirsuitism, acne. ...Read more
High potassium level: In the presence of normal kidney function and if you aren't taking other potassium retaining medications, Your serum potassium may only rise 1 or 2 milliequivalents at most which shouldn't be dangerous. This is an extracellular measurement and the intracellular level wouldn't be measured. Consult your physician,who knows your condition best, if you have further concerns. ...Read more
Does spironolactone actually increase basal levels of estrogen or does it just block androgens, decreasing testosterone?
Spironolactone: 26F NY asks: Does spironolactone actually increase basal levels of estrogen or does it just block androgens, decreasing testosterone? ANS: complex: decrease T production by testis, increases T conversion to E2 so more estrogen and displaces T from SHBG. Binds with T receptors thus acting like anti T.
