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.

Haven’t these men ever heard of “horny goat weed’? /s
Yes, it’s a real product...
Thats slightly disturbing. And never mind testosterone et al, I’m amazing his bones don’t crack.
Grandad swears by zinc tabs and Merlot wine.
No wonder Obama won.
Testosterone replacement therapy is the fast lane to cancer,according to my Doctor.
Be sure you do not have prostate issues (esp. cancer) before taking testosterone remedies.
My husband swears that Merlot works very well, if he can get me to drink it. ;)
“Be sure you do not have prostate issues”
All men over 50 have prostate issues...
>> “Testosterone replacement therapy is the fast lane to cancer,according to my Doctor.” <<
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.
99% of them Democraps.

Oy! The GOPe is pathetic, no? Hate to say it, but Nancy Pelosi is more of a man than our two pansies.
Not so. My 65 yr old has the prostate of a 40 yr old man, so says his urologist.
Like Dave Dravecky?
I think it was Dianabol that got him.
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
I’m 19 years “over 50” and I don’t.
You’d think that people could figure out that animal parts don’t belong in humans.
Mine is soooooo low, aaaaaah bwaaaaaaah..!!!
Now that is funny right there. Thanks for making me smile.
Blood pH is between 7.35-7.45
Who has 6.8?
“If your blood is above 6.8 cancer cannot survive in your body.”
Thanks for that... I did a Google search but will look more. Could it be that simple?
Slight correction needed: as measured by early morning urine.
“Im 19 years over 50 and I dont.”
Do a Google search on prostate cancer over 60. You may be surprised...
You have enough blood in your morning urine to give a valid pH test?
Thanks... PH is easy to measure in a DIY fashion.
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.
no sheet...there is a reason these snake-oil salesman spend a ton of cash for those stupid commercials. The response to “They can’t be serious...” is...”oh yeah...they are...low information voters do a lot more than vote!”
Hopefully that applies to alcohol level as well.
He looks like he’s made out of plastic.
Medicinal alcohol? :o)
Looks like he has a shotgun wound in the center of his chest.
Warning! If you should fail to wake in the morning, discontinue use and call your physician.
Quit smoking and drinking, eat right, step away from the computer, and get some exercise in the fresh air.
Could it be that simple?
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 went exploer his house as a kid.
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?
