Hello Cat, can you please explain in your words how Natesto does not suppress the body's testosterone production. I have read what was on the Natesto website but I do not fully understand.

I have been checking the Defy store weekly for Enclomiphene but have yet to see it back in stock.
Am I missing it or are they still having an issue?

I received my order of Flavocip 200mg a couple weeks ago. I took 100mg in the morning and felt nothing, then took another 100mg in the afternoon and felt nothing.
The next morning I took 200mg and for the next several hours I had to pee every 20 minutes. Then I took 100mg for five consecutive days, still no benefits.
So for me, no erections, no flaccid hang, no stronger pee stream. I stopped taking it, total bust for me. Let me know if I am doing something wrong, I am willing to try again.
I don’t understand why it would make me pee more, I thought it would “relax” my bladder. Age 57, taking daily 2mg Cialis.

This is intriguing, I want to try it. Maybe this explains the difference between a "grow-er" and a "show-er". A grow-er has too much noradrenaline.
I have been ordering from ReliableRx for years but they did not have Flavocip listed so I emailed them and asked to have it added and they did. Flavocip 200mg 30 pills for $14.
I will be ordering soon!!

Last year my A1C was 5.6, this year 7.0. My Dr. has me using a meter to monitor daily glucose levels. I am finding that most after meal levels are normal (below 140) but before meal levels are really high (above 170, a few above 200). What would this indicate? I had an appointment with a dietitian last week and she did not know.
I asked her about the liver dumping glucose between meals, she did not know.
Trying to change diet
Not overweight
No meds
some exercise

Thank you for the comments on this subject. It is good to know I am not alone. The wife and I have been talking and fighting about this for ten years.
It is like living with an alcoholic that won’t admit there is a problem. In the beginning it was always my fault, not doing something right. Now I think she is starting to realize it could be a physical problem. I have purchased books, printed articles, ask her to try supplements, make a Doctor appointment, exercise but nothing happens “there is nothing wrong with me, this is just how it is going to be”. The only progress is that she sometimes takes fish oil, it helped a little. I don’t want to threaten with divorce because that is not what I want. If I don’t initiate, there is no sex. She would rather watch a movie she has seen six times. If we were in our seventies It would be less of an issue (we are 54). I do realize that teenagers, work and stress makes it worse.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Testicle Health

I have searched thru the site looking for a page that refers to testicle health. In other words, what vitamins and supplement help the testicles (Leydig cells) produce testosterone.
I apologize if I may have missed this information.

I know that Clomid will increase my LH but I have decided to focus on making my testicles be all they can be (also, maybe larger).
The following is a list of things I have read that might help and things I will probably try. I am finally switching from briefs to boxers.
Vitamin E
Olive oil
Tongkat Ali
Onion juice
Stem Cells

Anything else?
Peak, if this page does not exist, can one be created?

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Percocet

In 2007 I had crushing fatigue. Found out I had mild sleep apnea and low T. I fixed the apnea and my T level has been better (also with lifestyle changes)
Starting in June I got that awful fatigue again. Needed loads caffeine to get thru the day.  I could not figure out what was causing it, Did my T drop again and why.
Then I remembered reading on this site about painkillers causing T to crash. Then it hit me, back in May I had shoulder surgery and was told to take Percocet to minimize pain while stretching the shoulder. I was only taking one pill per day (for seven weeks). I stopped taking them three weeks ago and I now feel much better.


Just read this the other day, for treating candida.

It was my own fault, bad diet, loads of sugar and dairy. Digestion slowly got worse, bas smelly gas. I would eat a banana in the morning then have loose stool five minutes later.
Relief was trial and error. Thought it was low stomach acid, tried HCL capsules with no improvement. Thought it was SIBO, tried peppermint oil, probiotics with no improvement.
Started reading about candida (always thought it was a female thing). Started following remedy procedures from Earth Clinic.
Small amounts of food grade hydrogen peroxide in water really killed it off. My maintenance routine is undecylenic acid capsules, berberine and kefir.
I really cleaned up my diet, cut out lots of sugar. I don’t take these supplements every day, just when there is a flare-up, like after ice cream and cake.
I don’t think you can completely wipe it out.

I have had low testosterone for almost ten years. Also, I have had bad digestion (bad gas, loose stool). I always thought I had a “nervous stomach” . Two years ago I self-diagnosed that I had candida and started taking supplements. My digestion is now somewhat under control. After reading this article, candida could be disrupting other hormones including testosterone.

For the low cortisol guys, the article says candida can bind to cortisol.


Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Androgen Receptors

Does testosterone and DHT attach to the same receptor throughout the body?
Or is there separate receptors for each?

I have been using DermaMag for years. It is expensive but I feel it works.
Helped with anxiety. Buy it on Amazon. DermaMag website sometimes have half price sales.
