Record Number Of Men Seeking Treatment For Low Testosterone Levels
10 TV COLUMBUS OH ^ | 30 JULY 2014 | JERRY REVISH

Posted on 07/30/2014 4:15:37 PM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Hair coloring and facial treatments like Botox help many people look and feel younger, but increasingly, more men are seeking a way to feel younger. In record numbers, they're seeking a way boost to the male hormone testosterone.

We've seen the ads that warn of low testosterone, the male hormone that builds muscle, controls fat, and improves sex drive. They show a man concerned about less energy, moodiness and a low sex drive.

Urologist Dr. Gregory Lowe at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center says he has seen patients come in asking for the hormone even without documented low testosterone levels.

Many of them are receiving it, too. Online ads offer a dizzying number of products. There are over-the-counter supplements at health stores, as well hormone injections from doctors or prescription gels.

Be sure you do not have prostate issues (esp. cancer) before taking testosterone remedies.

Your doc is pulling your thingy.

The fast lane to cancer is low blood Ph.

If your blood is above 6.8 cancer cannot survive in your body.

Not so. My 65 yr old has the prostate of a 40 yr old man, so says his urologist.

No the title should read, record number of Doctors (including the alternative therapy type MD’s, Osteopaths, and more ) are Testing for Low T. Add to that checking for low Vitamin D, and a host of other things if they are on their game....

I would think it would completely eliminate your bodies own capacity to produce testosterone, and that you would become permanently dependent on it.

About 25 years ago a friend told me about a doctor that offered a goat gland transplant to treat male performance problems. He had a radio broadcast on the Mexican border that transmitted quite far into the U.S.

He was a charlatan, but not many patients were willing to call him out because they weren’t willing to publicly admit they went to him for treatment. I just did a quick search, and found this link

Slight correction needed: as measured by early morning urine.

You have enough blood in your morning urine to give a valid pH test?

Funny thing about prostate cancer in particular:

Prostate cancer therapy will often kill in 5 years or so, but the cancer takes 25-30 years to do it, as long as the prostate is not disturbed surgically.

Biopsies often result in metastasis, and death by cachexia.

Urine ph is always proportional to blood ph in the early morning. But not after eating a meal.

The over 50 problem is usually bacterial inflammation of the bladder, not prostate.

It can be cleared by drinking juniper berry tea. We use it for our male cat when he gets plugged up.

Yes, blood pH of 6.8 means you are dead. Therefore, cancer is not an issue.

Testosterone does not cause prostate cancer! If it did, we would see men under 30 being diagnosed. Stop the soymilk and other soy food stuff, limit flaxseed and chia seeds, remove sugar and exercise through the use of resistant training and low to moderate cardio and your estrogen level will remain low, thus preventing the drop in progesterone. This should keep testosterone free and thus, not damaging. As for GH, most seniors do not havelow levels. Raising testosterone, correctly, has profound, positive effects. No doubt about it. Just 30 weighted squats every other day, has the ability to shift testosterone metabolism.

I'm not a fan of this treatment. Democrats just don't produce much testosterone. If you provide an artificial boost, their little bodies will produce even less to adjust to the sissy equilibrium that is natural in liberal half-men. Why waste the money?
