Testosterone as a Spray? No way! Yes, way!
Are you having fertility problems? Or are you concerned about fertility and testosterone?
Consider trying Natesto, a testosterone nasal spray
Low testosterone affects countless men across the globe, especially in Western countries like the United States, where the problem seems to be a big issue. Scientists have noticed a worrying trend that sperm count in men has been declining over the decades, and a growing number of men seem to be suffering from symptoms related to hypogonadism.
Low testosterone levels (also called “Low-T” but diagnosed as hypogonadism or testosterone deficiency syndrome) can cause a host of health maladies: fatigue, low libido, erectile dysfunction, weakened muscles, unwanted weight-gain, fat accumulation, joint aches and pains, insomnia, mental fog, depression...and a drop in fertility. Men need healthy testosterone levels to maintain a healthy sperm count.
One wants levels which aren't too far up or down, but in a range, we might call a zone of optimization of goldilocks zone, where testosterone levels are in a section along the spectrum which is best suited for humans, especially men, who can often seem to be hit hardest by testosterone deficiency.
However, help is available for these issues. A testosterone nasal spray is helping men feel better and keep their dreams of fatherhood alive. It's the way it's designed and the formulation of the testosterone which makes it so effective.
Many men are saying they knew something was wrong after feeling sluggish for years. A blood test indicated many of them had low testosterone or testosterone deficiency
“Not really having the energy or the desire to work out or just work through the entire day,” said one man, describing the symptoms he experienced from not having enough testosterone coursing through his bloodstream.
A blood test revealed he had low testosterone, a common condition that is showing up with increasing frequency in younger men, strangely enough.
American Testosterone Research
Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, director of reproductive urology at the University of Miami Health System, said, “At least one in three men between the ages of 32 to 50 appear to have low testosterone.”
Ramasamy said factors such as stress, obesity, and poor sleep habits might be to blame.
Symptoms include “general low energy, malaise, daytime fatigue, improper or disruptive sleep, rapid weight gain around the abdomen and hips, ED - erectile dysfunction or lack of any libido,” Dr. Ramasamy explained.
He said some testosterone therapies like injections and gels have one significant side effect.
“All of these treatments will actually block hormones from the pituitary gland,” Ramasamy stated.
The reason might be because of the esters add on some of the testosterone molecules which make them more long-lasting in the body. Natesto is thought to be more short-acting, and therefore more closely mimics natural testosterone. Other testosterone products, one usually has to take HCG injections to ensure the endocrine system is stimulated to produce its own flow of testosterone because sometimes taking exogenous testosterone for a long time can cause a diminished release of production in the body.
Now a treatment called Natesto, applied through the nose is offering younger patients another testosterone treatment option. But not just younger patients, patients of all ages can benefit from testosterone delivered through the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity.
“Because this is used two to three times a day and it’s short-acting, it still preserves your hormones from the pituitary gland and therefore maintains your sperm production,” Dr. Ramasamy told Ivanhoe.
University of Miami Medical Research
The doctor stated that patients enrolled in a University of Miami study have preserved their fertility and feel energetic and optimistic.
Ramasamy said, “They are able to lose weight, get back to the gym. Obviously, their sex life has improved.”
One study participant said taking Natesto has made an enormous difference.
“I have the energy, I have the desire to be active and to do things,” he stated.
He’s feeling more like himself again. Despite all the negative publicity about testosterone in the mainstream media, millions of men are describing feeling pretty darn amazing when they treat testosterone deficiency syndrome with testosterone treatments. There is nothing to be scared of, or nervous about; testosterone is not a difficult thing for an individual to administer to themselves in private. It's very straight forward.
Natesto was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved in 2012 but is being studied as a treatment option for men who want to preserve their fertility.
Possible side effects of testosterone therapy include the risk of blood clots, testicular shrinkage, and cellular damage, stroke, heart attack, aggressiveness, risky sexual behavior, and breast enlargement (estrogen inhibitors are usually prescribed with testosterone treatment by physicians, so excess testosterone doesn't convert to estrogen).
Don’t go it alone and don’t try this at home without medical supervision! We would love to speak with you about your options, whether it be testosterone spray, or the traditional injectable kind or transdermal gels and creams.
Natesto is covered by most insurance companies. If you are paying out-of-pocket, it will set you back around $200 to $300 a month. To learn more concerning the treatment or the clinical trial, go to ClinicalTrials.gov and type in Natesto. There are always several testosterone clinical trials underway as it is such a fascinating molecule, and millions of men are learning about it every year and decade, because of its powerful effects.
What is testosterone?
Testosterone is the male sex hormone that is produced mainly in the testicles in men, and in women, the ovaries are the primary source, both women and men produce testosterone in lesser amounts through their adrenal glands. Testosterone hormone levels are crucial to normal male sexual development and functions. Testosterone is not just vital to men going through puberty, as it enlarges the penis, and develops the secondary sexual characteristics one achieves, post-puberty, but also, testosterone is required to maintain normal optimal health throughout ones entire life.
Testosterone is an essential ingredient in men and women. In the spectrum-range men produce six to eleven times more than women. Women need testosterone too. Women who get hysterectomies often complain of having completely lost their sex drive, due to the ovaries not releasing testosterone.
Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome: Hypogonadism, Andropause, or Low-T
Men with verified low testosterone levels suffer from a condition known as testosterone deficiency syndrome or low testosterone, also given the slangy nickname Low-T, many physicians simply diagnose it as hypogonadism. Deficiency means that the body does not have enough of this powerfully essential and necessary substance. A syndrome is many symptoms that, combined, imply a disease or health condition.
Low Testosterone 300 ng/d or Less
The American Urology Association defines low blood testosterone as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter. As mentioned earlier, symptoms or conditions that may indicate low testosterone are decreased sex drive, fatigue, reduced lean muscle mass, irritability, erectile dysfunction, and depression.
Possible additional side effects
Increasing numbers of American men use a prescription testosterone gel or injection to restore normal levels of testosterone. The ongoing pharmaceutical marketing blitz promises that treating “low T” this way can make men feel more alert, energetic, mentally sharp, and sexually functional.
However, legitimate safety concerns linger. For example, some older men on testosterone could face higher cardiac risks. A relatively small number of men experience immediate side effects of testosterone supplementation, such as acne, sleep apnea, breast swelling, and tenderness or swollen ankles.
Doctors also are on the lookout for high red blood cell counts, which could ramp up the risk of clotting. This is why men who undergo testosterone treatments are often encouraged to donate blood or get updated blood work testing. It is thought that donating blood or getting blood testing done can help mitigate high red blood cell counts.
Men on testosterone replacement therapy for extended periods may have an increased risk of cardiovascular problems like heart attacks, strokes, and deaths from heart disease. Some doctors also have a persistent concern that testosterone therapy could promote the growth of prostate cancer cells.
The strange thing is that some studies have found 25% to 35% of men with low testosterone have heart attacks, strokes, and cardiovascular disease, so there is a connection with low-T and these kinds of medical problems.
This association between testosterone and prostate cancer has been repeatedly debunked. But because prostate cancer is so prevalent among older men, many doctors tend to be reluctant to prescribe testosterone to men who may be at risk.
The promise of Natesto
Ramasamy discussed the new treatment option Natesto.
“Just like many other medications that we’ve put through the nose, like medications that are used for allergies, they go through the nose and are absorbed systemically. It’s the same concept. It’s absorbed through the blood supply from the nose, and men who have been on the drugs so far have very good testosterone levels.”
