    Low energy production (glucose metabolism) may cause andropause

    As many of my readers know, aging men can also experience the equivalent of menopause and doctors informally call that state "andropause". Its official name is age-related hypogonadism and most of that hypogonadism is of the "secondary" type - i.e. the gonads appears to be in fine shape but for...

    I started a new experiment for boosting testosterone using a few things which include the scrotal application of vitamin K2 (thanks to Haidut for starting a thread about it long ago). I didn't expect much but actually got a very interesting boost in libido...a different kind that I haven't...

    Waking up early with painful morning wood

    I usually go to bed between 11pm and 12am and sleep 8 - 9 hours but lately I have been waking up at 5 or 6am with extreme morning wood. It's actually a little painful and causes me to wake up. I usually fall back asleep within 10 to 15 minutes but the remaining sleep is not restful and I need...

    B Vitamins Doubled My Total Testosterone Levels

    As many of you already know, I attribute a lot of importance to hormones, and I've played quite a bit with them. I have been off testosterone since the 6th of June this year. When natural, my natural testosterone levels has always hovered around 500ng/dl. It was 480ng/dl before I ever used...

    Testosterone As Well As Estrogen Increases Serotonin2A Receptor MRNA

    Hello, I am a medical student in my last year. For a few years I have been replacing all of my major hormones (see here) and I have been both high and low in many different constellations. From all this I learned 2 things. Each hormone deficiency can cause chronic fatigue. Each hormone...

    I Replace All My Hormones. Here Is What I Learned

    Estrogen Lowers T, DHT, And Fertility; Inhibits 5α-Reductase (5-AR)

    I am posting this study below as a response to numerous angry emails I have been getting over the years. People sending me those emails just cannot accept the idea that estrogen can be detrimental for males (and females as well), and that estrogen levels are directly antagonistic to the male...

    Anti-Psychotic Endocrine Disturbance Counters? + Some Back Story

    TLDR; Olanzapine (Zyprexa) is meant to majorly disturb the endocrine system, increase prolactin, lower testosterone etc. Is there a way to mitigate this? HCG? Pregnenolone? Not using the medication is not a possibility for this stage - at least until I stabilize. The dosage will be low - 2.5mg...

    Honey And Dairy Kill Libido And Ability To Get Erection

    Any idea why? Carbs from starch or fruits don't do it. I have to mention that the honey is raw (all honey in Germany is), and I was fairly allergic to pollen honey (clogged nose) so I switched to forest honey(?), which seemed to make the reaction go away, but it still killed my libido. Dairy...

I myself am experiencing with a lower-fat diet at the moment to...

    Body Fat Distribution

    Hi all I wasn't sure where to post this so I figured it was metabolism related. So my question is. Is it possible to change bodyfat distribution? My current understanding is that testosterone in lower range and out of upper limits causes the typical android distribution. I'm sure this is...
