Testosterone Hormone

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Testosterone Hormone

Testosterone is a powerful hormone, with the ability to control sex drive, regulate sperm production, promote muscle mass, increase energy, and even influence human behavior (such as aggression and competitiveness). It’s no wonder that a decrease in testosterone would cause quite a stir. However, it is a natural part of aging.

In the Womb

Testosterone plays an important role in shaping the developing fetus during pregnancy. It drives the development of the male reproductive system. Testosterone also masculinizes the brain.testosterone levels have to fall within a very narrow margin in order for the fetal brain to be healthy. High levels of fetal testosterone may be linked to autism.low levels of fetal testosterone may boost your chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease later in life.

Adolescence to Early Adulthood

Testosterone levels are at their highest during adolescence and early adulthood. The first physical signs of testosterone, or androgens, in the body are apparent during puberty. A boy’s voice changes, his shoulders broaden, and his facial structure becomes more masculine. But as men get older, their testosterone levels decline about 1 percent per year after age 30.

Male   Female  
Age: T Level (ng/dL): Age: T Level (ng/dL):
0-5 months 75-400 0-5 months 20-80
6 mos.-9 yrs. <7-20 6 mos.-9 yrs. <7-20
10-11 yrs. <7-130 10-11 yrs. <7-44
12-13 yrs. <7-800 12-16 yrs. <7-75
14 yrs. <7-1,200 17-18 yrs. 20-75
15-16 yrs. 100-1,200 19+ yrs. 8-60
17-18 yrs. 300-1,200    
19+ yrs. 240-950    
Avg. Adult Male 270-1,070 Avg. Adult Female 15-70
30+ yrs. -1% per year

Testosterone and Aging

low testosterone levels can cause changes in sexual function, including:

  • reduced sexual desire, or low libido
  • fewer spontaneous erections
  • impotence (erectile dysfunction)
  • infertility
  • Other signs of decreased testosterone levels include:

  • changes in sleep patterns
  • emotional changes, such as low self-confidence or lack of motivation
  • physical changes, like increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density

The normal range of testosterone levels in healthy adult males is between 280 to 1,100 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).

Other Possibilities

While the symptoms described here are considered a normal part of aging, they could also be signs of several underlying factors. These include:

  • a reaction to certain medications
  • thyroid gland disorders
  • depression
  • excessive alcohol use                                                                                 
  •  
  • the best time of day to have a blood sample taken for a testosterone test is around 8 a.m.

Mr M L Swami, The sugar levels mentioned are exceptionally high, need urgent treatment. You can either start with oral anti diabetes drugs or with Insulin injections, plus diet control and regular exercise. It is better if you come in a private communication with details like fasting, Pp and HbA1c% (all present values), dietary pattern and extent of exercise then I will be able to give specific guidance. The matter is really serious, please initiate urgent treatment.

I am 41 years old male. I have autoimmune thyroid disease from last 5 months. What to do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Autoimmune thyroiditis can lead to reduced function of thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), in such case thyroxine hormone has to be given daily for lifetime. Tsh, t3, t4 should be tested every 6 weeks to adjust the dosage of thyroxine till it is stabilised. So you have to start on thyroxine tablets dose depending on weight and tsh levels.

Alcohol consumption is absolutely not recommended when one is diabetic. But of course once in a while it is fine. Rum by itself does not contain sugar but if taken with coke can be hazardous to a diabetic. It has 38 to 60 % alcohol and alcohol is empty calories.

HI, My thyroid TSH level 12 and T3/T4 normal and cholesterol is 222 and BP normal. Please suggest me how can I reduce TSH? Rgds Srinivas.

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Hi, you need to increase the dose of your thyroid medications to bring down the level of tsh between 1& 2. Once your tsh is normalised, you can recheck your cholesterol levels. If still high then start with a medication to reduce it.

Hi Your blood sugars are marginally on the higher side. Normal blood sugar values: FBS: 80-120 mg/dl After measl: 140-180 mg/dl I want you to follow a strict diet pattern like: Eat small meals every 2-3 hours. Avoid eating too much carbohydrates for breakfast and dinner. Have an early dinner. Do not have fruits in excess and have them only as snack. Eat lot of proteins, avoid junk food, fried foods, sugary foods, fruit juices. Exercise regularly. These if followed will reduce your blood sugar without the need for increasing your mediciations.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Answer to your questions are not so easy that can be given in few words. Your Diabetologist and Cardiologist are best persons who can give you effective advice. Possibly your diet is to be adjusted by a dietitian under supervision of your Diabetologist. You might need more calorie but avoiding increase of CHO and Fat component of your diet. Your protein quantity may have to be increased, of course if your Kidney function is alright. For Exercise, Brisk walking (at your highest comfortable speed) daily, 6 days a week is required. Duration is minimum 30 minutes if you are not overweight. If you feel tired you take a break to begin with. But complete 30 minutes walking. Yes use walking shoe while you walk.

Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are too high, shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. If you are on treatment, it is clear the current treatment is not helpful or grossly inadequate. Needs immediate improvement. Plus I see that you are having a bmi of 34.09 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. This also contributes to increased blood sugar. So there needs to be - efforts to reduce weight, additional treatment and proper diet control and exercise. With this multi pronged approach we will be able to bring situation under control. Thanks for the question.

Mr Kishan, Diabetes and hypothyroidism should be always in control with proper drugs. If hypothyroidism is not in check it can cause constipation. To give any kind of advise i need to know fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, TSH levels and drugs being taken. So please give those details and come in a private conversation, where I can give specific suggestions. As regards low BP please mention the BP readings.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Diabetes is not curable but can be kept under control.
