By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Persistent Organic Compounds and Health. Introduction: Persistent organic compounds (POPs), also known as POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants) are a set of chemical compounds that resist photochemical (solar), chemical and biological degradation to varying degrees, causing their half-life to be high in the environment (persistent organic pollutant), may remain for several decades and even centuries in the environment. They are harmful as they contaminate food especially dairy products and meat. They pass to the foetus through the placenta and are excreted in breast milk, threatening the reproductive health of both men […]

Along with lack of desire (lack of libido, sexual inappetence or anaphrodisia), it is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions of women (especially after menopause) and they often go to the extreme of pretending a climax to please their partner. There may be anorgasmia in men, but it is less frequent and difficult to diagnose, as it is hidden behind the misconception that ejaculation is an orgasm. It consists of not reaching orgasm or climax in a normal way. 5% of the causes of anorgasmia are organic and have […]

Andropause Is A Syndrome That Should Be Treated

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Testosterone values decrease annually, although individual differences may exist. Total Testosterone values decrease by 35% in men aged 20 to 80, while free Testosterone (Tl) decreases by 50%. It has been shown that with age there is a loss of heart rhythm (day-night) of the secretion of Testosterone, in the elderly, as well as an elevation of transporter globulins and therefore only 2% circulates freely to be used by cells of the body.   -What is Andropause and how does it manifest itself?: The term Andropause is used only to […]

What The DHEA Is Used For

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

-Definition: DHEA is a steroid hormone, is an acronym for Dehydroepiandrosterone or Androstenolone, and one of the most important produced by the human body, especially in the adrenal glands, being the precursor of many other hormones, and is a prohormone, among the most abundant in the body. It is also produced in small quantities by the ovaries, testicles and brain. Steroids are a large family of compounds with a common basic structure that have anti-inflammatory, sex-determining, and growth-regulating functions. IT is pregnenolone the major precursor, as it is the source […]

Free testosterone is the most important factor

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The androgen testosterone (17βhidroxiandrostenona) has a molecular weight of 288 Daltons. In the male sex, testosterone is synthesized almost exclusively by the Leydig cells of the testicle. Its secretion is regulated by the luteinizing hormone (LH) and responds to negative feedback from the hypophysis and hypothalamus. SHBG is strongly attached to three sex hormones found in both men and women: estrogen, dihydrotestosterone or DHT, and testosterone. SHBG carries these three hormones through the blood. Although SHBG fixes three hormones, the hormone that is fundamental in this analysis is testosterone. The […]

-Definition According to the reference values established by the World Health Organization (WHO), a fertile male must have at least 15 million spermatozoa per milliliter of semen. The progressive motility of the sperm should be more than 32% and the morphology is normal (without anomalies) should be more than 4%. The morphology of the spermatozoa is a characteristic that is studied in the spermiogram (it is the same as the seminogram) to see if there are abnormal spermatozoa in the semen, in what quantity they are found and what alterations […]

Aromatase Is Important

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

-Definition: Androstenedione and testosterone are converted into estrone and estradiol, respectively, by the activity of aromatase, an enzyme located inside several cell types of the gonads. The catalytic active complex is composed of a cytochromeP450 aromatase. The gene encoding this protein is CyP19 and depending on the tissue and species, the aromatase possesses between 490 and 525 amino acids. Steroid hormones, once synthesized, are secreted to the general circulation or lymphatic system to be transported and then specifically captured by their respective target organs. When released into circulation, gonadal steroids […]

Paracrine function of the testicle

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

-Definition A paracrine action is that which is exerted in the nearby cellular environment, as opposed to endocrine which is a system of chemical signals whose action is exerted at a distance in other organs or glands. There is also the intracrine or autocrine action that acts inside the same kind of cell. In the testicle we can find three types of tissues with different characteristics and of different embryonic origin: interstitial, tubular and tunic. In the interstitial tissue there are Leydig cells, macrophages and also blood and lymphatic vessels. […]
