Is it possible to build this site in different languages?
Thanks Demo,I just wanted to know if it's same with you (or some of you). I don't think that my endoc is well informed about pois )))
I think the translation will be more like a "copy" and "paste" thing. Getting this forum professionally translated would cost over our heads. Good luck to anyone who wants to try.
Hi,I've completed the survey questions offline and just tried to paste in my answers to the online form. However I was then greeted with a message in french apparently detailing an interuption to the service (the survey form was working the day after I last posted that it wasn't working. The new message is different to the last one I got). Again I'll try again later.Because I can't always get online and have a lot of catching up to do, I've saved and converted the entire contents of the forum to a pdf document and also to a word document (up to and including page 218). Even in small font size the pdf is 1056 pages long! If anyone else feels it would be useful to have a copy of the forum contents in this format (the Word format document is the most useful I think), please send me a private message with an email address I can use. The pdf is 4.9 megabytes and the Word document is 26Mb! These are too large to send via normal email so I'd have to use a service such as yousendit.com or transferbigfiles.com. Perhaps in future on the website we could have a word or pdf version of the naked scientists forum that is downloadable. Any downloadable copy would have to be updated periodically to keep up with new content being added to the NS forum.
Dear martin88, I urge you to find some real information on hormones (preferably at http://forums.realthyroidhelp.com/viewforum.php?f=5). If your doctor tells you, that you are fine because you´re "in the norm" and you trust him/her, you are making a mistake. There is a difference between normal and healthy ranges. Let me tell you, how "normal" is being constructed. You take, say, 150 people, take their blood, measure their hormones and design the range so that X% of those 150 people lie in that range. Obviously, this works fine, when the those sample people are healthy. When they are not and their hormonal levels are out of whack, you get a much wider range than you would get with healthy people. This is how it can happen, that 25 years ago a man was considered infertile when he had less than 100M spermia per ml of juice. Today, since the fertility rates are going down and the above described method is flawed, anybody having more than 25M spermia per ml of juice is considered FERTILE! People suffering from thyroid disease are often told, that a TSH of, say, 2 is good, since the normal range is 0.XX - 4 (roughly). However, thyroid sufferers only feel good, when their TSH gets under 1.5 or so! When TSH is larger than that, they feel miserable independently on the type or quantity of medication. So, to sum this long article up..all of your testo is LOW! I didn´t see your thyroid labs, but FT4 should be in the upper third/quarter of the range to be healthy, TSH should be as low as possible (anything under 1 is superb). If you are from US, you are a lucky guy:) Contact Dr. John Crisler (http://www.allthingsmale.com/index.htm). He knows the difference between normal and healthy and has helped many men fighting testosterone deficiency.For informational completeness´ sake, I should add my personal experience with dieting. Low sugar, high protein, high fat diet is what keeps me going and strong. When I eat high carbo, not to mention vegetarian, diet, I get weak, tired, sleepy and depressed. Maybe, it all has something to do with high insulin (again don´t confuse normal and healthy), which is driven down by aerobic excercise that helps many folks here, including me. I have read some discussions here on B vitamins. If you have homocystein above 6, you are probably low on B6 and or B12 and or folic acid. When it comes to good mood, which many people are fighting here to get, nothing helped me more, than the metabolized form of B6, namely P5P. A three month supply from Swanson´s costs $5. This is making me a very positive, funny and social type of person. Got me rid of depression in a week, when nothing helped (L-Thryptophan, 5-HTP..you name it).I was wondering, what might have predetermined me to suffer from POIS and I would like to ask you guys, when you were babies, were you breastfed? I was prematurely born and I didn´t receive a single breast-feeding my entire life. BF makes the immune system strong (catching un on Coreman´s success with Alpha 20C for immunity), so maybe it is somehow involved in our problem. To test whether immunity has any effect on POIS, I will try two immune support products (EPICOR and Immunity essentials from Swanson´s) soon and report back with results. All of you take care, D.

Good luck to anyone who wants to try.This is unnecessarily pessimistic! We have friends right here who will help out, including Mat in Spanish. B_Jim, Pronobis, and Martin know French, etc. and many people who have simply expressed a desire to help us. Known as friends of friends.
Hello All,It's been a while since I've been here. In the past I've had some moderate success with going to a mostly vegan diet etc. Buy recently I had a sleep study done and found I had sleep apnea. Last week I started wearing a TAP, an oral appliance that prevents your tongue from closing off air to your lungs. Guess what? My symptoms of POIS are gone, no exaggerating. (I've been testing, haha. I had sex Friday and Saturday nite and this Sunday morning jogged/hiked 10 miles.) In the past I'd be flat on my back craving carbs, feeling depressed and sick. This may not be everybody's solution but I urge anyone who hasnt had a sleep study to DO IT! I tried the CPAP but that was so intrusive I laughed it off. The TAP is aggreeable with me. Good luck everyone. Keep searching. Your bodies if they get the right stuff, will work correctly. I just may get to start dating again  El Stonio
Slowly catching up with some previous posts... Demo I see you were asking for a show of hands for who would take part in a research study. I'd definitely be willing to do that, so count me in. Thanks.
I have suffering from hormone problem. I have a question about a medicine its Levitra. My friend has suggest me this for treatment. He has tried this and he has got it by online from http://www.levitrabliss.com/ Is it effective medicine or can be side effects by using this medicine. Should i use it?
With regards to the new website, whom is involved in its creation?I am sure I can be of some help.... I know guys who (for a small fee) could write a script that could "suck" this whole forum our of here and put it in say a phpBB type environment so we could carry on.... each user would have to have an account on the new system them we could send it over.....I do not know anyone with time to do it for free at this point.... so its just a thought.... I know its hard for everyone to agree to these type things and I am sure there will be lots of people who like the new site and others will not.... :-( can't please em all!Is there a place to peek at the new site :-)Let me know, will help when I can, but I am busy too with my work....PS.
Demo, I deleted my last post because I really do not want to argue over a post I made that I disagree on too. Yes I realized I've misunderstood. I just think you might over-exaggerate on it a little bit.
ZMA: (Zinc, Magnesium, b vitamin): made it worst (no longer take)Ashwaghanda: helped a little at first but later caused difficulty sleeping (no longer take)Rhodiola Rosea: slight increase in energy, but caused difficulty sleeping (no longer take)Fish and Cod Liver Oil: helps with mood and I seem to get less headaches, and muscle aches possibly due to the anti inflammatory nature of Omega 3s (still take regularly)
I also take Omega 3's, but I don't notice anything at all, do you?
OK now a post with regard to my current POIS....I was able to stay O'free for 10 days.... longest time ever! I find it very very hard! At day 7 I felt great, no brain fog, no anxiety.... wow... amazing... Then I got a little over excited, no O yet... but it brought on the POIS symptoms maybe 40-50%! And it did that within 30-60 minutes!Also I just started seeing a homeopathic Dr. and she explained to me that this POIS thing which she has heard about, but not called POIS, she called it something else which I need her to remind me the name of... but it was with regards to Kidney Chi in Chinese medicine.... and she says its related to Adrenal exhaustion.... I am now having an ASI (Adrenal Stress Index) test done and she said she will know more when the results are in... and thats not till approx. Aug 14th! (bummer) If nothing shows on it, her next step was hormones.PS.
Martin, great work on that Email Form! As you mentioned, if everyone here can just add 1-2 or more email addresses, we can "get the word of POIS out there"!I'll check your form periodically and then I'll send out the same appeal that I sent to NORD and WHO.Thanks again!
goingcrazy,QuoteI also take Omega 3's, but I don't notice anything at all, do you?I am taking fish oil and it does indeed improve my mood. I think that it has to have enough DHA in it, I take one with 400mg DHA twice a day. This is unrelated to my recent lack-of-POIS, as I just started taking it last week.
Hi everybody, I've been reading this forum for the past month (there is a lot of pages) and I too think I suffer from POIS. hopes this information helps, I have a new theory about POIS which I'll post later.
This is just a reminder for the email list: Please follow this link : http://pois.vndv.com [nofollow](You'll see some new emails with some links.)If we contact a list of organizations we should get between 1 and 10% response so it's good to have as many email addresses as possible.. If everyone would be willing to enter at least one, the process will go faster..To reduce the cost of a study we can benefit from governement funds for research, or from directors of large hospitals/universities and famous researchers who may have an influence on the financial aspect.. We can look for-articles/studies about sexuality-big hospitals/universities involved in research-organizations for rare or sexual disorders -(national) institutes for research-heath organizations from government-...Teamwork can really pay off here!Thank you for your cooperation!http://pois.vndv.com [nofollow]
Also I tend to wake up early in the mornings even though I'm still tired due to morning wood.
Hi Martin,should we only fill in this form?
DemoYou're saying Reglan was the cause for your high prolactin rate?I'm guessing you combined the -getting off of that drug with -celibacy?
