Lh Testosterone

  1. 1. Lh TestosteroneUnderstanding Luteinizing hormonehttp://lhhormone.orgSharon asks…Why don’t bodybuilders take LH supplements instead ofTestosterone?Since LH instructs the testes to produce testosterone wouldn’t taking LH increasetestosterone just like steroids do? Just that the body would produce it itself, instead of getting itfrom an exogenous source.Thanks!Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:Supplements that increase testosterone production in the testes can only increase it a certainamount, there is a limit to how much the testes can produce.Injecting steroids can give you 300%, 400% or more testosterone than your testes could everproduce naturally. So they would have a lot more dramatic effect. 1/6

  4. 4. Susan asks…how could lh and testosterone levels be low?both lh levels and testosterone level are low i was wondering what causesPregnancy Advisor’s answers:You need to understand that it may not be possible to isolate the cause. You could be dealingwith a primary malfunction of your hypothalamus which is not sending the message to thepituitary gland which in turn notifies the ovaries to make hormones. Or it might just be a pituitarygland failure. Then again everything in the brain may be working and the ovaries are just notresponding to the messages making this a primary ovarian failure. As you can see it is hard totell for sure. It is important to rule out tumor in either the brain or pituitary glandIn any case seek hormone replacement – bio – identical are best.Monitor carefully with bloodwork and you should notice a change.Lisa asks… 4/6
