Are you one of the many people in Oakland Park who are burning the candle at both ends and maybe only getting 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night? Are you also one of those guys having problems with his sex drive and feeling out of sorts? Well, recent studies done in Oakland Park in the last 3 years show that these symptoms could all be due to the effect of sleep on testosterone – just how, though, may be a chicken and egg question!
While it’s true that lower testosterone levels can be the cause of a sluggish sex drive and irritability it seems to be a matter of research opinion whether low sleep levels cause low testosterone or low testosterone causes lack of sleep.
Ten Common Myths About Testosterone Treatment For Women
Women have different weight loss needs than men. Many times, men seem to lose weight at the drop of a hat, while women seem to starve themselves for weeks, only to find that they have only lost a pound. Is there a way to even the playing field in the weight loss game? Sure there is! By following weight loss advice designed for women, women can lose just as much weight as men can in the same amount of time.
One reason men seem to lose weight faster than women is because of a nasty little visitor that women have that drops by once a month. While your period doesn't actually cause lasting weight gain, it does cause you to temporarily gain water weight. Water weight can stick on you for two weeks at a time, causing you to feel like your weight loss efforts are not doing any good at all. This may cause you to give up on them altogether. Your period can also make you feel pretty bad. With irritability, cramps, headaches and bloating, you may have moments of weakness and grab that brownie that has been calling your name. Then you might feel worse, and eat the whole pan of brownies.
Men, obviously don't have these problems, the lucky punks. To combat these issues, there are some tricks you can try. To fight the bloating, resist the urge to chug soft drinks and chomp down the potato chips. The extra sugar, carbonation and other nasty ingredients in soda can make you feel bloated and tired. Chips have a lot of sodium and grease, which can add to the bloat. To help with the cramps and headaches, talk to your doctor about a gentle pain reliever that will work for you. Also, drinking warm tea will help you feel better. When it comes to cravings, remember chocolate is not your enemy. Sounds crazy, I know, but it isn't all the fat and sugar that comes with some chocolate that you are craving it is the chocolate itself. Find a chocolate bar that has the highest concentration of cocoa. You will need less of this chocolate bar to satisfy your cravings. Using these tips will help you relax, feel better, and not give up or de-rail your weight loss efforts.
One advantage that women have over men in the weight loss battle is soy. Soy is not good for men in large amounts because of the phyto-estrogens it contains. These phyto-estrogens don't have ill effects on women, so women can enjoy more soy, and it can actually be a healthy addition to their diets. There are many yummy products that include soy, and soy can be a great low-fat way to get in your protein. So is a part of many products these days, so you can choose from a variety of tasty products.
When it comes to weight loss, women often think that men have the upper hand. Once you understand the reason why women have a harder time losing weight, you can prevent these issues and take advantage of the benefits that soy has to offer. Women can improve their weight loss odds by following these tricks designed especially for women.
Is it Low T? How to Get Your Husband's T Level Checked!
High prolactin levels in men are a guaranteed killer of your sex life. The normal range for prolactin in men is 2-14 ng/ml, but yours should be under 8 and preferably between 2-3 if you want optimal sexual function. The symptoms in males of high prolactin levels are low/no libido, weak erections, premature ejaculation, long refractory period, listlessness, and low energy.
So how can you lower your prolactin? There are some over-the-counter supplements that will help if you are in the 8-14 range and you want to get down closer to 2 or 3, but if your levels are above 14, you need to talk with your doctor or endocrinologist about getting on a prescription-strength supplement.
The over-the-counter supplements that can lower prolactin levels in men are P-5-P, which is the bioavailable form of Vitamin B6. 100mg daily is the recommended dose. Another option is 400mg daily of an herb called Vitex Agnus Castus, also purported to have mild prolactin lowering effects in males. Finally, you can take mucuna pruriens standardized for l-dopa. Your dose will vary based on how much l-dopa is in the formulation.
If these don't work for you, I would strongly recommend talking to your doctor about a prescription drug called Cabergoline, which will obliterate your prolactin and turn you into a "marathon man" sex machine.
My prolactin varied between 15-21 ng/ml, so I used a combination of P-5-P and penis hand exercises to deal with my problem. The P-5-P lowered my prolactin below 8, and the hand exercises improved my erection quality as well as my penis size, which gave me greatly increased confidence which also improved my libido. I went from 5.5 puny inches to very well endowed.

Are You Curious About Testosterone Therapy?
The subject of testosterone therapy has caught my attention lately. I had begun to study about it when about three or four months ago my wife brought me a bottle of testosterone capsules for a 90-day trial. She wanted to see if it would help me in my battle with afternoon fatigue and general lethargy.
I thought why not, it can't hurt. I wasn't desperate or anything, I was mostly curious about "Low-T" and wanted to experience for myself all these health claims that are flying around the media lately. For example, these TV commercials about the cure for erectile dysfunction were getting on my nerves. I am particularly dismayed by the couple in two separate bathtubs. What's up with that? (Sorry no pun intended).
Then a few days ago I got a call from a telemarketer, asking how my testosterone trial was going. I told him it was working great for keeping elephants out of my flower beds. As long as I was taking the capsules, no elephants had trampled my flowers. He was not impressed by my humor, and just wanted to get me to order more. Nope, I told him. I really couldn't tell any difference on or off the capsules. When he told me I needed more time for my body to adjust to the product, I ended the conversation. I know more about Low T after my extensive research than he seemed to know
On the other hand, someone is buying this stuff. In an article by Rachael Rettner, (published on line on MyHealthNewsDaily June 3, 2013, Copyright © 2013 TechMediaNetwork.com). Ms. Rettner says, "The percentage of middle-aged men in the United States taking testosterone to treat symptoms of low testosterone, or "low T," has increased substantially in recent years, a new study suggests."
For the last ten years, prescriptions for testosterone supplements among men over age 40 has been gradually increasing until today more than 3% of men in that age bracket have received some form of testosterone therapy. That is almost three times more than in 2001.
But does the stuff work? The answer is that study results have been less than supportive that it does. In fact, I found many so-called scientific studies that made all sorts of weird claims, but none were truly conclusive. It is like my-elephant-in-the-flowerbed comment. The obvious sarcasm is that if I did nothing, the elephants wouldn't bother me because I don't have any elephants wandering around my suburb. Scientific research cannot prove a hypothesis by the absence of symptoms.
Ms Rettner presented her most shocking comment when she quoted an editorial by Dr. Lisa Schwartz and Dr. Steven Woloshin, of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice: "the low T campaign [is] "a mass, uncontrolled experiment that invites men to expose themselves to the harms of a treatment unlikely to fix problems that may be wholly unrelated to testosterone levels."
"Before anyone makes millions of men aware of low T, they should be required to do a large-scale randomized trial to demonstrate that testosterone therapy for healthy aging men does more good than harm," they wrote.

Oakland Park, Florida
Oakland Park, officially the City of Oakland Park, is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city's population was 41,363, mainly due to annexation of North Andrews Gardens and Twin Lakes South. It is part of the Miami–Fort Lauderdale–Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area, which was home to 5,564,635 people at the 2010 census.
Originally named "Floranada" (a blend of Florida and Canada), the town was forced into bankruptcy after the hurricane of 1926. When the municipality reincorporated, residents chose to make it a city and voted for the name "Oakland Park." The original boundaries went from the Atlantic Ocean, west to what is now U.S. 441, and from the north fork of Middle River north to Cypress Creek Boulevard, but when the boundaries were reestablished, it was to approximately the west side of U.S. 1, west to Northeast 3rd Avenue and the north fork of Middle River north to what is now Prospect Road. Over time, it has expanded to its current boundaries, mainly due to acquiring a few other areas, such as recent annexations of previously unincorporated neighborhoods of Twin Lakes South and North Andrews Gardens.
Oakland Park is located at 26°10′35″N 80°8′40″W / 26.17639°N 80.14444°W / 26.17639; -80.14444 (26.176362, -80.144509). According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 8.1 square miles (21.1 km2), of which 7.5 square miles (19.3 km2) is land and 0.69 square miles (1.8 km2) (8.40%) is water.
