The Menopause Hormone Blood Test identifies deficiencies (or excesses) of sex hormones estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, and testosterone. The “female” estrogens: estriol, estradiol, and estrone, all affect health throughout the body. Progesterone, which balances the action of estrogen, serves as a precursor for other hormones, and plays an important role in mood, blood sugar balance, […]
(1). HRT will stop your hot flushes and sweats Troublesome hot flushes, severe night sweats and headaches causing chronic insomnia are characteristic symptoms of the menopause.

What causes testosterone deficiency? Testosterone is a hormone produced by the testicles and is responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics, and is important for maintaining muscle bulk, adequate levels of red blood cells, bone density, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive function. Inadequate testosterone production is not a common cause of […]
Testosterone esters are less polar than free testosterone. Testosterone esters in oil Injected intramuscularly are absorbed slowly from the lipid phase; thus, testosterone cypionate can be given at intervals of two to four weeks.
Testosterone in plasma is 98 percent bound to a specific testosterone-estradiol binding globulin, and about 2 percent is free. Generally, the amount of this sex-hormone binding globulin in the plasma will determine the distribution of testosterone between free and bound forms, and the free testosterone concentration will determine its half-life.
About 90 of a dose of testosterone is excreted in the urine as glucuronic and sulfuric acid conjugates of tesrtosterone and its metabolites; about 6 percent of a dose is excreted in the feces, mostly in the unconjugated form. Inactivation of testosterone occurs primarily in the liver. Testosterone is metabolized to various 17-keto steroids through two different pathways.
The half-life of testosterone cypionate when Injected intramuscularly is approximately eight days.
In many tissues the activity of testosterone appears to depend on reduction to dihydrotestost-
erone, which binds to cytosol receptor proteins. The steroid-receptor complex is transported to the nucleus where it initiates transcription events and cellular changes related to androgen action.
Until recently, the only commercial testosterone products available contained methyltestosterone, a synthetic form of testosterone, in dosages only appropriate for men. Current studies, however, clearly show that testosterone is also an important hormone for women. Now, because of its increased popularity, there has been a rush by both pharmaceutical companies and compounding pharmacies to meet […]
Anti Aging, refers to attempts to slow down or reverse the processes of aging to extend both the maximum and average lifespan. Researchers believe that future breakthroughs in tissue rejuvenation with stem cells, molecular repair, andorgan replacement will enable humans to have indefinite lifespans through complete rejuvenation to a youthful condition. During the process of aging, an organism accumulates damage to macromolecules, cells, tissues and organs. The maximum life […]
