It is suggested that bioavailable testosterone represents the fraction of circulating testosterone that readily enters cells and better reflects the bioactivity of testosterone than does the simple measurement of serum total testosterone. Also, varying levels of SHBG can result in inaccurate measurements of bioavailable testosterone. Decreased SHBG levels can be seen in obesity, hypothyroidism , androgen use, and nephritic syndrome (a form of kidney disease ). Increased levels are seen in cirrhosis , hyperthyroidism , and estrogen use. In these situations, measurement of free testosterone may be more useful.
MY HUSBAND IS ALREADY TAKING A TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT COMPOUNDED JUST FOR HIM. BECAUSE HIS TESTOSTERONE WAS IN THE BASEMENT OF THE CHART. HIS RX IS 20% TWO TIMES A DAY THRU A
INTEGRATIVE HEALTH DOCTOR. THE REPLACEMENT THERAPY IS NOT HELPING HIS ED PROBLEM. CAN HE TAKE THIS ALSO? I DON’T WANT TO CAUSE ANY HEALTH ISSUES WITH OVER LOADING HIS SYSTEM. HIS ED WAS NOT HELPED BY VIAGRA, CIALIS, OR LEVITRA, BUT WE FOUND GNC HAD A PRODUCT THAT WORKED GREAT. AND GUESS WHAT… IT WAS PULLED FROM THE SHELF FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, AND THE NEW VERISON SUCKS! JUST WISH I COULD FIND OUT WHAT THE SECRET INGREDIENT WAS THAT THEY TOOK OUT OF THE ORGINIAL PRODUCT. GREED IS NOT ONLY DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY, BUT IT IS DESTROYING MARRIAGES… THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
