41 lacking Libido, erection strength and sexual endurance....Help
- 12-28-2012, 02:48 PM
OK, here is an update...
I went to see an Endocrinologist today. I'm not sure what to think of his advise but here it is. He said my Estrogen wasn't that high?? I was like what? Then he asked me what do I take, I told him milti-vitamins, fish oils etc... Then he asked about my protein shakes. I told him I have been taking them and I switched over to all natural shakes too. He told me that taking the milti and protein shakes are possibly my issue.
Really? He said that the shakes are bad for me and that I don't need a Milti and to stop them now. He said that we get to much nutrition and don't need a milti. He also went as far as saying that the protein shakes are bad for my bones and could be causing my hormone imbalance. I don't know how to take this. Seems crazy to me but he told me to stop taking everything for 3 months then we will retest. What do you guys think of his comments? I was in shock to be honest. He was a Chinese dude and wasn't born here that's for sure. I left there not very happy with his observations but may be jumping the gun. I go back to my Urologist next week. I will see what he thinks of my high estrogen. I personally think its way to high and don't think it's the protein shakes at all. Or my Milti vitamin.

Still in process going to see my 3rd endo in a month. Still ongoing. For some reason neither one of them seem to care that free est high low free test. Both seem to think that I'm relatively young nothing is wrong. Very adamant that I have no energy and no libido all they did was lower dose of synthroid. Its so discouraging to say the least that these doctors won't listen.
Need to find endo that listens I'm 30 years old diet very clean, train 5 days a week and don't drink smoke or do drugs.

there is a topic about reducing-estrogen in this forum but I cant url the link because my post count is not high enough... but
if you have high e2 you need to read that article. I'm still tweaking things but it has helped me quite a bit. its in the over 35 forum so just scroll down
01-08-2013, 06:25 PM
Thanks, I have seen it and have done some of the things in there. I haven't noticed any change yet. I will know more in March.

Ok here is an update. I will be seeing my Endo this Friday. He had me take some tests prior. What was strange he never tested my Estrogen Total this time when this was the test that came back suspect in the past. I had the following tests done prior to this weeks meeting.
Enhanced Estradiol = 31.57 Not sure what this is for??
Testosterone Total = 483
LH = 3.66
Follicle Stim. Hormone 6.70
Again I'm not sure why he didn't test Estrogen total? So frustrating, I can already tell that he'll probably tell me that I'm fine or blame Peanut butter or some crap like that. I will post an update Friday, I'm already dissapointed but hope that they at least try something I'm so tired of blood tests!

I haven't had a shake in 2-3 months, I haven't seen a change in my health at all. I doubt its the shakes! Who is your Endo, I think we have the same one. LOL

You know, I was at my Drs about 3 weeks ago and we were going over my diet. He also mentioned that high protein diet had adverse impact on libido, could cause testicular shrinkage and also reduced sperm production!!!! I guess if you are over 40 and your body starts slowing down, you need to think about that if your libido drops and you are having a hard time conceiving with your significant other.
On another note, tribulus and horny goat week works for me. It takes a good 2-3 weeks to kick in but it does the job! + Adding a good NO booster also helps with getting the circulation going down there!

I would need to see some scientific evidence About protein having adverse effect of libido, testicular size and anything along those lines. The last 2 endos I have seen have spent more time lecturing me about going tanning once a week than listening to how I feel and explaining why my free test and TT are low.
03-08-2013, 10:10 AM
I'm not sure what else I can do? Any Ideas?

Been researching a lot on soy bc have Hashimotos and hard to find protein or protein bar w out some sort of soy or soy product in it

I'm not sure but the DR's just look at a range and if you fall between that range there isn't a problem. I'm 5'4 170 lbs, if the DR goes by the BMI index I'm obese! But in reality I'm not, but the DR will tell me I need to lose weight! My Endo was more concerned about his liability than anything today. He told me since I'm in the "normal" range he can't give me test because of the side effects and the judge would come after him! He even referenced Michael Jackson's DR's case hahahaha. Even though I tell him I know I don't feel right etc... Oh well, I think my Urologist is more open minded about this and may try something to make me feel better. I will know on the 28th and let you know how it goes.
03-08-2013, 11:27 PM
Well good luck dude! Sure you'll be fine. Did you try anything anyone suggested for the time being on this post?

conventional single supps
I d avena sativa(also for nicotine urges, quit for the most part)
macuna prureins(good on moods, good for libid, slows me down a bit, and recharge faster)
saw palmetto for DHT
also tongkat ali works wonder on overall performance

I saw my Urologist today, finally something positive to post. He's going to review my blood tests and if he thinks my test in in the range but in the low end of the ranges he is going to try some test shots and see how I do. I told him I do not want creams due to my 6 year old daughter. I also asked about spreading out the shots instead of one large one everymonth and he said he would look into it. Finally a Dr is willing to at least try something and see if it helps me out. I will know more soon and will update you again.

Well back to the same old thing. My Urologist contacted me today and said all my tests are normal. So he wont give me anything at this point. So I'm stuck in the same place as I was 10 months ago. Not sure what to do now?

...took it bc I read somewhere that if you raise your test thru macuna, tribulus, and sativa, ones hair could fall out..so the saw palmetto helps counteract DHT.funnny thng is that it does dampen performance somewhat
04-04-2013, 10:07 AM
I don't care to much about DHT. If I have to shave my head so be it. I'm 42 so who cares at this point LOL. Plus my ears are small LOL!
