“Just OK”? or “Great!”

10/   July, 2017

I hope your summer is going not just “OK”, but great! I cringe when a patient tells me their doctor said their lab results were “OK”, or that they are in “the normal range”. Has this happened to you?

This is super common when it comes to testosterone levels, both for men and women.

When men do not have a good testosterone level, they can feel tired, unmotivated (including lack of libido), grumpy, and have muscle weakness or weight gain. There isn’t much agreement about what is a “good” testosterone level for a man. Most of us in the functional or regenerative areas of medicine think a level of at least 600 is good. Often, higher is even better.

“Female Viagra”

11/   September, 2015

My 50+ Girlfriend: “The new “female Viagra” is going to be the answer!” [to her long-standing issue with low libido]

Me: “No, there’s no one single answer to this issue – it’s a problem with a lot of aspects.”

Her: “No! You’re wrong! This drug is going to fix this problem.”
