Quote from: Counterpoints on 31/07/2009 20:44:16Hi,Good work with the website. Please add a link to the survey: http://pois.olympe-network.comWith Waldinger's paper, instead of giving it to anyone, I thought we'd create an incentive to join the forum here. So we're asking to first register at NSF (you need to in order to send/receive PM's), then send PM with regular email and PDF is returned.Do you want to do that with the survey?
Hi,Good work with the website. Please add a link to the survey: http://pois.olympe-network.com
I have just recently checked out an excellent website and forum called The DEFINITIVE MIND. It was created by a doctor/psychiatrist named Dr. Mariano...
Hi,Good work with the website. Please add a link to the survey: http://pois.olympe-network.comI think the survey should be accessible to anyone (I don't want to risk losing any important info), although it might be useful to add a link in the survey to the forum, once the user has completed it.
Quote from: Pronobis on 30/07/2009 12:09:47I forgot to tell you about my blood test (made some hours after 2 orgasms). So according to reference values all hormones are normal, but my testosterone level is high . Do you think that's normal? I read that decreasing level of testosterone results with a stress, the latter is the cause of some skin problems (as I have). If I have high testosterone level what could it be?   Pronobis, I think that your physician is best equipped to answer this question, coupled with the rest of your medical history.The link below might be a starting point for you, based on some searching for "high testosterone level in men", which is a fairly high-request search on Google:http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=high+testosterone+level+in+men&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

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.
