I am in process of researching and gathering that information for presentation. I takes a lot of time to get access to some of the journal articles (some have to be purchased) and the information is in various journals of toxicology. The information is there but not in our typical medical journals. It has been so overlooked but you will be surprised by what we have all been exposed to and the effects of those exposures on our endocrine system.
Why are they trying to reduce trt? Are they trying to feminize society. In Australia its almost impossible to get TRT and all its doing is pushing guys underground to get TRT. Its like they want to keep guys on antidepressants, viagra, pain meds, diabetic drugs, cholestetol and hypertension etc.
I have to answer this so apologies if you are waiting to hear from Dr. Rob. High estrogen levels are associated with increased risk of multiple cancers in both men and post menopausal women...high BASELINE values that is. That means that men with high estrogen levels not on testosterone therapy do have a increased risk of cancer. The reason for this is that their high estrogen levels are secondary to their obesity or more specifically their visceral body fat. Visceral body fat causes a increase in inflammatory cytokines as well as insulin resistance. It is this pro inflammatory state that leads to the at least 12 different cancers related to visceral body fat including breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers. It is the visceral body fat not the estrogen although a lot of people hear and read it is the estrogen... it is not...estrogen is just a passive bystander getting blamed. In every study showing the positive effects of testosterone since the 1930s there was no control of the estrogen. All of these positive effects were also seen in all studies that included obese men with high baseline estrogen levels. The T decreases the visceral fat and insulin resistance which protects against above mentioned cancers. In every study where estrogen was blocked it showed harm. No study to date giving testosterone without blocking estrogen has caused harm (except a few highly flawed studies discussed in this podcast)...only benefit.
If a man on testosterone gets symptoms of high estrogen (I’ve not seen one in my practice) then treat with a lose dose AI until symptoms resolve and then discontinue the AI. There is a big difference between and man having high estrogen from obesity (harm) than from a high level of estrogen while on testosterone (no harm). Mine is 80 or so by the way. I could go into a much more detailed explanation including the benefits of estrogen as well as the physiology if you would like. Just email me a wellness@T1institute.com
Testosterone resistance? Wow...that is very interesting. I was unaware of such a condition and I highly suspect that was me. Been on TRT for a year and half. I pay out of my own pocket...best money I every spent. We are all biologically unique so, after experimenting with your doctor (prescription and protocol) and you get "dialed in"...your quality of life will improve so much. Do it smart, under the care of a doctor, do your blood work, eat clean(er), exercise and enjoy your life.
Yes it completely explains why you can have normal levels in the serum but all the symptoms of T deficiency because the problem is the interruption of signal translation by affecting receptor binding, transcription, and or translation. Medicine has bee so focused on trying to simplify treatment with guidelines based on numbers that have no correlation with symptoms that we have forgotten that we are dealing with complex organisms that require a deeper understanding of all the processes that can cause dysfunction ..not just a number outside of the cell. I did not spend my life training to be a medical chef following cookbook guidelines that are most of the time based on politics and economics and not what is best for the patient. In the testosterone world medicine is completely ignoring all the processes involved in testosterone exerting it’s effects and how endocrine disrupters affect those processes even though it is in the medical literature.
TRT saved my life. My levels was at 235 and my doctor at Kaiser P said I was in normal range and thought I should see a psychiatrist and wanted to put me on a anti estrogen which is retarded because my E levels were already tanked. Instead I decided to try TRT and went to a cash clinic and I cant put into words how much better I feel. I'M RELIEVED OF ALL MY SYMPTOMS AFTER 6 WEEKS!
Chronic Fatigue cured
Brain fog cured
Motivation is back
Sex drive fantastic

Should I keep going?
Keith Nichols MD I'll probably buy it and check it out when it arrives but at 27 yeah my t is low ish with symptoms my lh is always mid to high it's shouldent be so low when I'm clock in at 8.5lh sometimes btw thank you.
If you have access to TOT bible it is answered on pages 529 - 530. I would strongly recommend downloading it from amazon. I live with my iPad so it is always available to show my patients a good reference text and I find myself reviewing it quite often myself even after reading it 3 times. If you have any trouble downloading it let me know. I can summarize those pages on varicocele for you if you can’t get access
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
