Menopause can result in a decline in hormone levels, including testosterone, which is essential for various aspects of a woman's health. Here are some natural ways a menopausal woman can increase her testosterone levels: #menopause #testosterone
Exercise & physical activity: Regular exercise, particularly strength training & high-intensity interval training (HIIT), have shown to raise testosterone levels. Incorporate a mix of cardio & resistance training exercises into your routine to help maintain healthy hormone levels
A nutrient-rich diet is essential for hormonal balance: Include both lean & fatty meat, eggs & fish, fats (like those found in avocados, ghee, lard, tallow & olive oil). Specific foods, such as cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, & cabbage), support hormone production.

Interestingly, the findings of this one suggest that comorbidity burden could be the driving factor behind age-related decreases in total testosterone levels in men.
- The current study utilized data from the 2004-2017 Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging to investigate the association between additive comorbidities and serum testosterone levels over time in men with a mean age of ~69.8 years.
- After controlling for various comorbidities, no association between age and testosterone was observed.

Do night shift duties pose any risks on health?

1. Large number of people are employed in jobs that require working at nights and sleeping in daytime.
Is it healthy? Are there any health hazards associated with this routine?
Let's look at some of the research on this topic.
2. Type 2 #diabetes :
Night shift work, especially rotating shift work including night shifts, is associated with higher type 2 diabetes odds.
Working on #night shifts for >8 nights/month increases the risk of diabetes by 36%. Ref:…
3. Hypertension: In a recent study, night shift workers were found to have a higher #hypertension risk than day shift workers, which increased with increasing frequency of night shift work. Ref:…

In this one, exogenous testosterone administration was found to alter the metabolome in such a way that lipid substrates were preferentially utilized over amino acids, something that was in turn associated with attenuated muscle proteolysis during a severe energy deficit.
- Testosterone administration altered androgenic steroid, acylcarnitine, and amino acid metabolites during severe energy deficit compared to the placebo group.
- During the recovery period, when testosterone was not administered and the severe energy deficit had ended, many of these changes reversed.

Il Sex drive, crescita muscolare, confidence, mascolinità...

Che cos'hanno in comune?

Derivano tutte dal Testosterone...🧬👇
3 anni fa mi sentivo mooolto meno "mascolino", di come mi sento ora, perchè?

Perchè avevo i livelli di testosterone basso, ma non avevo mai correlato il mio "non sentirmi mascolino" al testosterone... Non avevo ancora così tante informazioni come ora
Nel momento in cui me ne sono accorto, ho prenotato le analisi del sangue 🩸...

Sono rimasto shockato quando ho visto i risultati:

2,67 ng/ml 🤯

la mia mascella era metaforicamente a terra, in quel momento si erano come collegati tutti i punti nel mio cervello

”She's moody, probably because she's a teenage girl, but could it be the #BirthControl?”
"She's acting so hormonal."
"Her moods are crazy, she's PMSing all the time."
Moods have nothing to do with #gender and sex hormones! These #stereotypes only perpetuate #bias. 🧵 #MedTwitter
Let's start with #hormones. Hormones are chemicals released by certain organs that carry messages to other organs. Everyone has hormones. Changes in hormone levels can affect our moods but having hormones does not make someone moody.
The reproductive (and other) organs produce the sex hormones (#progesterone, #estrogen, and #testosterone) in all people, just in different quantities. These levels can vary throughout the day and over time.

Soy is one of the most well-known sources of #PlantBased protein.

While many people enjoy dishes made from #soy, others are concerned about soy’s environmental and health impacts.

Today, we are taking a close look at the impacts of soy and the many myths that surround it.👇 1/8
Many people worry that #soy increases cancer risks.

However, these concerns are based on #animal studies, which found that rodents who were exposed to high doses of isoflavones, compounds found in soy, showed an increased risk of breast cancer. 2/8
Human studies produced different results.

A study, which followed 70,000 women over 7 years, showed that those who consumed the highest amounts of #soy had a 22% lower chance of getting breast cancer than those who consumed the least. @HarvardChanSPH 3/8…

Today, we’re taking a look at the effects of artificial testosterone on the female body. #Testosterone is prescribed to healthy female children at gender clinics across the US. Its side effects include #depression, type 2 diabetes, blood clots, and high cholesterol. (1/8)
A recent scientific study found that artificial testosterone also increases females’ risk of heart attack. Src: #healthcare (2/8)
Artificial testosterone and artificial estrogen both increase the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) when used for “#transition.” That means higher risks for heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. Src: #health (3/8)

THREAD: Let’s talk about the HOW. How do “trans kids” #transition from healthy children to cash cows for Big Med? Let’s break down the process. (1/13)
The first step is the “affirmative model” of #therapy. When a child claims to be or wants to be the opposite sex, well-meaning parents may seek answers from a therapist. An “affirmative” therapist automatically labels the child "trans." (2/13)
It’s important to note that “affirmative” therapists don’t examine children’s #mentalhealth or question their ideas before making a decision. Instead, they “rubber-stamp” children’s psych evals. Src: (3/13)

🖐️Have you ever seen those studies claiming finger length is related to health and behavior?

There's a whole field of research exploring the ratio between index and ring finger (known as 2D:4D digit ratio).

I think it's mostly #pseudoscience!

Take a few minutes and read on!👇
Before the debunking details, a disclaimer.

I care about scientific quality+integrity, & helping people understand the nuance behind abstracts & media headlines.

I'm not intending to disparage anybody personally. Perhaps some of this research is legit, but many issues w/ 2D:4D.
Supposedly #digitratio indicates prenatal testosterone exposure.

Fetuses exposed to more male sex hormones in utero are supposed to have a smaller digit ratio (shorter index finger or longer ring finger).

But, there's very little evidence of this in humans.

I’ve had dozens of inquiries about shin splints, hamstring injuries, and generally injury-prone sprint groups in this, our first pandemic track season.

The view from 30,000 feet... “Why does this surprise us?”

Contributing factors (thread)

1) For some kids, it was nearly 5️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ days since their last track meet.

2) Sprinting is the most EXTREME exercise in the human experience.

3) Running is not sprinting.

4) Many of our best male athletes spent the LONG off-season as body-builders.

5) 🏋️‍♀️ and body armor are critical for injury prevention in collision sports. However, body-building, weight gain, and flex-posing 💪 are recipes for ⬆️ exposure to many non-contact injuries. Strong muscles can put ⬆️ stress on connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, bones, etc) ⬇️

Dear guys, your weight matters!

Being too fat may cause hormonal changes in your body leading to;
• low sperm count
• bad sperm quality &
• inability to make a woman pregnant

You can stop firing blank & weak by shedding your excess body fats

A thread 🧵

RT for awareness
Apart from low sperm count and poor sperm quality, obesity is a well-known cause of
• erectile dysfunction, and
• low sex drive.

Being overweight can damage your blood vessels and decrease the level of your male hormone #testosterone.
The damage caused to your blood vessels by obesity can come in different ways, e.g. due to the associated;

• high blood pressure
• diabetes
• excess cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)
• excess triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia) and
• inflammation

Writing guidelines is hard, since evidence often lacking for key items. AUA recommendations re T thresholds is excellent example. No data exist re who responds to TTh based on total T levels. So recommended threshold of <300 is ARBITRARY, not evidence-based. 1/
While I congratulate AUA for establishing #testosterone guidelines, 1st rule should be to avoid making AUA members who practice good medicine WRONG. Experienced clinicians know there are MANY men with total T >300 who benefit from TTh, esp if have low free T. 2/
Since guidelines are not laws, there is ample room for clinicians to deviate from guidelines in their own practices, and data reveals poor adherence to most medical guidelines. A big issue, tho, is that insurance often will not provide coverage based on restrictive guidelines. 3/
