Okay we've all talked about the testosterone levels and what things it does. However, I want to know if there are any men out there who have had the "Male Hormone Levels" checked, and if so are you getting or receiving treatments. I've had mine done and have started some forms of treatment with hopes that it will give me some lift.

yeah my testosterone is supposedly "normal" but its in the high of lower numbers...I keep asking and getting same answers. So, I"m goin' back to square one with the people who did the original male hormone levels.

Normal in this sense refers to the statical normal range (think of a bell curve and normal distribution), not you are "normal" (the opposite of abnormal). I think you are still barking up the wrong tree. There are many non-hormonal causes to your problem.

Canada does the numbers different then America.....but to that I answer when I got the results back from the testing of testosterone levels. He said I was in the middle to low......still tryin' to understand it. I'm gonna reschedule with my Dr at the Med Shoppe where I had the male hormone tests done again for new results. These last ones were from about 3 years ago.

The whole world does it different. USA uses ng/dL for lab values. Pretty much the rest of the world uses mmol/L.

You Americans. Just got to be different, don't ya ;)

But of course.

I had my T checked and it was low.  Found out it was causing some strange affects.  Been on shots for about 6 months and need to get it checked again because I still have some affects of low T.

I've been doing the shots for over 15 years.  I felt a huge difference initially. Sadly, didn't help with the libido as much as I would have liked.

I started HRT last year.  My levels were down in the mid 200s.  Initially I felt more energetic and amorous but within a couple of months I was back to feeling as I had before.  After a period of 6 months I got checked again and my T levels hadn't changed.  I found out that this is not abnormal as your testes reduce the amount of T they produce when you're on the therapy.  I just started taking a shot every two weeks (that I do myself because I don't trust my wife not to wiggle the needle LOL).  We'll see how this helps.

Look up Rhodiola as a herbal supplement.  Link to  Rhodiola supplement.

It is a way to boost your system.  It is subtle and takes a week or two to build up.  The changes are minor but real for a friend of mine.

Has anyone struggled with depression beforeIt

After reading up on examples of depression, I think I have it. Actually I know I have it. Some short points:-20 years old, not currently in school.-Addicted to junk foods, mainly greasy cheeseburgers-Gained a bunch of weight (6'1 230)-Rarely talk to people anymore except close friends-When not working, I isolate myself in my room and just surf the web-Everything is black and white, I don't have any hobbies, I don't get enjoyment out of anythingThose are just some of the minor things. I don't…See More
