March 30, 2017 Category: Erectile Dysfunction

General Level

Implies causes of testosterone level reduction in all men:

  • psychological factors: this includes stress, financial and family problems;
  • food: use of foods that lower testosterone;
  • drinks: alcohol, carbonated water (with or without dyes);
  • bacteria, viruses, infections;
  • medicines: all antiulcer drugs reduce testosterone, as well as drugs that reduce potency;
  • heredity;
  • injuries of testicles and reproductive organs;
  • minimal physical activity, sedentary lifestyle;
  • harmful habits: excess weight, smoking, alcohol;
  • bioenergetic natural factors (wearing mobile phone in pockets, working with laptop on laps, etc.);
  • age: after 40 years testosterone level in men is 70% of the original;
  • ecology.causes of low testoterone

Private Level

Implies reasons for testosterone level decrease in an individual man:

  • high blood pressure;
  • increased number of respiratory movements (dyspnea);
  • increased number of heartbeats – pulse (more than 80 per minute lowers testosterone levels);
  • quantity of hemoglobin (both increased and decreased hemoglobin lowers level of testosterone);
  • increased level of bilirubin (norm 20 mmol/l, more than 25 mmol/l lowers testosterone level);
  • violation of kidneys (decrease in urine output (less than 1 liter per day) lowers testosterone levels by 15 – 20%);
  • excess weight (abdominal fat in men secretes enzymes and hormones that contribute to decrease in testosterone);
  • increased blood sugar. Blood sugar norm is 5,5 mmol/l. Indicators exceeding 7 mmol/l lower testosterone (one of causes of diabetes is low testosterone, in its turn testosterone controls sugar in blood);
  • violations of acid-base balance pH – norm is 7,4;
  • increased leukocytes – norm is 4000 – 5000, more than 5000 – decrease in testosterone;
  • overheating of testicles. For normal production of testosterone and spermatozoa, testicle temperature should be less by 3,3 degrees than body temperature. Tight underwear can overheat testicles, thereby violating production of testosterone;
  • violation of lipid metabolism: cholesterol – less than 6,5 mmol/l.
