Melatonin and Testosterone

I encourage to just go about your regular routine and see where your T lands.  Melatonin can affect T a little but not enough to likely make a difference.

But you want to see where your T is at "living your life".

Also, I know some U.K. folks go to France and are able to enroll in the French system.  Could that possibly help?

I'm living with the current routine as I have no work. I have little reason to go to bed, and little reason to get up in the morning.  :-\

I'm not sure about the French idea. France has an unemployment problem too. Do the French treat low T more seriously than the British?

Would the Melatonin be likely to slightly lower or increase T? I suspect it might lower it slightly?

French health care has a very good reputation from what I have heard.  Would they handle hypogonadism differently?  I don't know.

Some melatonin info:

See 4: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Antioxidants_Testosterone

However, it may lower dopamine a little:

But getting good sleep can really help some men and I suspect increase testosterone.

However, there is a caution here:  a couple of animal studies showed decreased testosterone with melatonin supplementation:

I could not find a study on humans though.  If anyone finds one, please let us know.

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
