The many serious testosterone drug risks are the reasons men want to make sure their testosterone levels are adequate
Which is why everyone and their grandmother is touting every concievable cure on all of media.
Which is why a lot of people are asking...
Are testosterone drugs the next Viagra?
But this is the wrong question to ask
Because the side effects of Viagra are serious enough that a lot of men pass on it
Testosterone drug risks are no less serious. Watch this video, and read this post in full to see what I am talking about
The full title of this video is: Testosterone Prescriptions on the Rise Despite Health Risks
Not to be outdone or outmaneuvered out of a huge chunk of profits, the drug companies are also scrambling to cash in on the testosterone drug craze
But men who care about their health are terrified of testosterone drug risks-especially, in light of recent FDA warnings about said risks
See now what's driving the low T drug hype-Profits!
The consequences of low testosterone are very serious indeed. Testosterone is not just for a hard erection. It plays important health roles in both men AND women
But the high risks of testosterone drugs should give men pause. After all, what you're looking for is solution, not additional problems
A man would like to be able to satisfy a woman in bed. His opinion of himself and self esteem plummet if he cannot fulfil this obligation to himself and his woman
Low libido thus creates great stress in a man's life
Here are some of the health hazards of low testosterone
Impotence or erectile dysfunction
Low sperm count
Low ejaculation volume
Enlarged breast size in men
Loss of muscle tone
Weight gain, especially in the midsection
Erratic sleep patterns
Shrinkage of the testes
Higher risks of bone fracture
Mood swing, depression, and believe it or not-hot flashes!
And according to this ABC NewsLow testosterone can cause premature Death
Low testosterone increases risks of Alzheimer's disease according to this article
Would you believe men also suffer from hot flashes?
This is known as Andropause, and it is as unpleasant as hot flashes in women
This is another consequence of low tesosterone that men have to contend with. So it is understandable why some men, in their desperation would ignore some of the serious risks of testosterone drugs, if they can just get some relief
Low testosterone risks are serious alright, and the anxiety it generates in men is being exploited by drug companies hoping to make quick profits
But before you fall for the sales pitches, consider these scary testosterone drug risks
Would you consider these risks as insignificant?
Testosterone drug risks for men
Higher risks of heart attack
Risks of prostate cancer
Low testosterone drugs can make you develop feminine features such as larger breasts
Inhibition of bone growth
Lower sperm count
And these are those that have been acknowledged. Who knows how many more
Testosterone drug costs
The side effects are serious enough, but here is another factor to consider.
The cost of these testosterone medications can be as high as $500 a month
I know most men would pay any price to get their manhood back-if they can afford it
But why pay such a steep price for something that puts your health at risk, especially when there is a cheaper, effective way to increase testostone naturally?
But there is a major one of the many testosterone drug risks that requires special mention
One of the most serious of testostosterone drug risks is high blood pressure
And here is why
High blood pressure is a risk factors for..
You don't believe me?
Check out the warnings about testosterone drug risks at this FDA website
Testosterone drug risks are too serious to be justified, either by their efficacy or price
Testosterone drugs pose particular risks to women of all ages.
WOmen should not come in contact with testosterone. Women who come in contact with testosterone drugs are more likely to develop male characteristics
Pregnat women should especially be very careful not to come in contact because of the risks it poses to the woman and the fetus
Testosterone drug risks are not confined to women-and men who take these drugs
They also pose serious danger to young girls
Contact with testosterone drugs can trigger early puberty in young girls-a condition experts think may make them more susceptible to cancer later on in life
Is there a natural way to boost testosterone?
Of course there is!
But subjecting yourself to the risks of testosterone drugs will get you more problems than they solve
Because of these serious side effects, some people are now suggesting all kind of gimmicks for increasing testosterone
BUT, there is a better, more affordable way to boost testosterone naturally, without the risks to your health.
I'll get to that later
But first, let's examine these testosterone drug risks, and why you should stay away from them
According to a study published in http://jcem.endojournals.org/content/92/1/196.long testosterone level has steadily declined-regardless of age, over the years.
In fact, between 1987-2007, the decline is a whopping 20%!
Why this steep decline in testosterone levels?
We know this much though, in the time span cited...
It seems most of us are doomed to the fate of low testosterone. That is because of the high rate of obesity worldwide.
Combine that with the sedentary lifestyles that a lot us live, then you know we are really in trouble.
But it gets worse, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, stress-all these combine to put a lot of people at risk of low testosterone.
Children and adults are on their electronic devices into the late hours of the night when they should be resting.
These people are more likely to snack unconsciously through the night.
Unfortunately what they snack on are unhealthy foods laden with salt, sugar, additives, artificial colorings etc.
This lack of sleep and lack of adequate rest, and poor nutrition, could lead to irritability and stress-all risk factors for low testosterone
This increases the risks of obesity, and low testosterone for men.
But there is a natural solution for low testosterone. This is important in light of recent warnings-from the FDA, about the health risks of testosterone drugs.
Did you watch the ABC news video above? It sure brings into sharp focus testosterone drug risks-in case you thought I was making it up
AND, it also shows you why a natural approach to increase your sexual performance is the healthiest way to go
This natural solution is pine pollen!
Read more about the awesome nutritional value of pine pollen, and how it can improve your sex life, by following the above link
Pine pollen is the male portion of the pine plant
Pine pollen is a nutrient dense natural product that stimulates the body to produce its own testosterone. This approach is different from introducing testosterone from drugs
You've already seen some of the many testosterone drug risks
Why would a man subject himself to the serious side effects of these testosterone drugs?
Ironically, one of testosterone drug risks that should be of particular concern to men, is lower sperm count. Why is this, when the opposite should be the case?
Well, when you introduce synthetic testosterone from the outside, the body slows down its own production. In fact, when you interfere with the functions of the body in this way, the part producing the nutrient may start to atrophy-that is , it starts to shrink.
This may be why testosterone drugs cause shrinkage of the testes
And how about the increased risk of prostate cancer?
Assuming these drugs work; if you now have more sexual prowess, won't you want to be around to enjoy it?
Here is another problem with the drug approach
As with most drugs, one of testosterone drug risks, is dependency. There is evidence that some people become dependent on these drugs
But the problems do not end there
All these from drugs that are supposed to jack up your libido!
There are several factors that can affect testosterone level. These problems may not respond to drugs
What causes low testosterone?
Obesity has becoms a global problem. It is not surprising that the rise in the number of men who suffer from low testosterone has coincided with the explosion of obesity worldwide
Young men in their 20s even suffer from erectile dysfunction!
These young men should be especially reminded of testosterone drugs risks because, in their anxiety they are more likely to abuse these drugs
After all, they are supposed to be vigorous at that age
Obesity is a risk factor for a host of diseases including heart disease, brain impairment, diabetes, strokes, high blood pressure
Unfortunately, these are also risk factors for low T
A more prudent way for the obese who suffer from low testosterone level, is to lose weight first. An overweight man subjecting himself to the risks of testosterone drugs may be further damaging his health
The body needs adequate nutrition to perform the thousands of bio-chemical actions that it carries out. And this includes the production of hormones
For instance, the body needs Zinc and Selenium for healthy sperm production. In fact, a high percentage of a man's selenium is in his sperm store
Vitamin C is important in the synthesis of Collagen. Collagen is involved in the synthesis of testosterone
As you can see, good nutrition is required for good health in general, and certainly for the production of testosterone
For instance, Zinc deficiency reduces testosterone level
So, instead of a man subjecting himself to these testosterone drug risks, he may just have to eat right. That is cheaper and healthier, won't you say?
Lack of sleep
Sleep is a healing product
Sleep is so important that a third of our lives is spent in bed
If you want to know how important sleep is, try to stay up 24 hours non-stop
A lot of biochemical reactions take place at night. The hormone melatonin, for instance is produced at night
The body carries out repairs, the brain helps the body de-stress, the brain sorts out and selectively retains and discards what we have experienced during the day at night-when we are asleep
Lack of sleep is a major risk factor for...
Look at the consequences of not getting enough sleep, again
ALL of them are also major risks of low T level!
See how important sleep is?
Why would any man subject himself to serious testosterone drug risks, when all he may need is a good night's sleep?
Other reasons testosterone is low include
Age-a lot of young men suffer from erectile dysfunction too
As we age testosteone production declines. This is normal.
But this does not mean that a man cannot still perform in bed at any age
But why would a young man in his twenties have low testosterone and thus suffer from erectile dysfunction?
The key certainly lies in his lifestyle, such as...
Obesity-we have seen how obesity is a risk factor for erectile dysfunction from above
Excessive alcohol consumption
Lack of sleep-as stated above. Young people are more likely to be on the computer, their ipod, ipad into the late hours of the night
These late sleepers are more likely to snack on unhealthy foods full of salt and sugar. This increases the risk for obesity. And as we know by now, obesity is a major risk factor for low testosterone and erectile dysfunction
Here are some factors that may also cause low male testosterone hormone level.
As serious as they are, they are no excuses to subject yourself to those testosterone drug risks the FDA warned about, and that are listed in this post
Disease of the testes. Testosterone is produced by the testes. If the testes is not in peak health, it is not hard to imagine that its ability to produce adequate level of testosterone would diminish
Problem with Pituitary and Hypothalamus. These are located in the brain. Testosterone is manufactured under a signal from the pituitary gland, and the hypothalamus.
If any of these organs is damaged, production of testosterone may be compromised
Whether they are testosterone gels, injections or tablets, testosterone drugs risks are no less because of the form it takes
They cost more and the injections can be painful
You can avoid these risks and increase your testosterone level naturally
This is the healthy way to get restore your manhood and improve your sex life without drugs
