Low Test Levels?
Copied this of an e-mail I got today
Did you know that over four million American men suffer from low
testosterone levels ? Yet only 5% are currently treated - mainly
because they don't realise they have a problem!
Dr. John Morley, a researcher at Saint Louis University, has developed
an easy way to tell if you're suffering from low testosterone levels.
Choose the responses below that best describes how you have been
If you answer yes to question 1 or 7, or at least THREE of the other
questions you may be suffering from low testosterone levels.
1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
2. Do you have a lack of energy?
3. Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?
4. Have you lost height?
5. Have you noticed a decreased "enjoyment of life?"
6. Are you sad and/or grumpy?
7. Are your erections less strong?
8. Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play
9. Are you falling asleep after dinner?
10. Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?
You can also find the test at http://www.tquiz.com/

kinda funny - I am sorry, its a good post but the quiz is absurd - those are all such vague symptoms - if you answer half of them yes it definitely wouldnt even strongly suggest lack of test levels - it could be depression or several other physcological factors as well that could be attributing to them - I have a very close friend with a natural testosterone deficiency (between 120-300, where the normal range is between 300-800) due to a pituitary gland dysfunction, its actually very interesting to watch the effects test has on the body - seeing someone as low as he (when untreated) and then as high as I am all juiced up (or 'treated' ) there's definitely several factors that are changed depending on where your test levels are

I knew that the intellectual levels of this board would only read it as a brief outline and it is a very vague quiz.
Mike I may be wrong here but if you are stressed or ill does,nt that hinder test levels anyway and if so the symptoms described could be seen but I also agree with you those symptoms could be caused by anything

The only reason I say it is because a friend and his missus were trying for a baby and they had all sorts of tests and they were both OK and his test and sperm levels were normal but he has a very stressful job and they put it down to the stress levels that he had to cope with.He took 3 weeks off work and they went on hol and she conceived.
I will research as well and see what I can find

Could it be that the stress cause his sperm count to become low? All testosterone does to help sperm mature faster. Course with that said, stress can be an ugly monster. Stress can cause alot of unwanted crap... But still all in all Billy my boy, nice to know..
