    Testosterone concentration increased after remission, while cortisol secretion decreased. Sleep EEG disturbances remained unchanged in remitted patients.[] The data suggest that a blunted testosterone and an elevated cortisol secretion are state markers of acute depression, which normalize independently from sleep structure.[]

  • Gynecomastia

    This Zone includes Zone 0 and is the most commonly affected area in gynecomastia and creates the breast like appearance.[] Spironolactone can increase the aromatization of testosterone to estradiol, decrease testosterone production by the testes, increasing the rate of testosterone clearance by[] Gynecomastia, defined as benign proliferation of male breast glandular tissue, is usually caused by increased estrogen activity, decreased testosterone activity, or the use[]

  • Endometriosis

    A) Decreased serum testosterone concentration B) Idiopathic C) Increased scrotal temperature D) Increased serum corticosteroid concentration E) Isolated luteinizing hormone[] His affect is flat. Which of the following is the most appropriate pharmacotherapy?[]

  • Benign Papilloma of the Ureter

    -Imaging: flat filling defects typically affecting distal ureter Multifocal ureteral stenosis.[] PATHOGENESIS: Several theories BPH may result from a combination of decreased testosterone and increased estrogen, occurring with old age.[] A creatinine level above 12 mg/dL indicates that the kidney tubules of both kidneys are affected. In this case, dialysis is a necessity.[]
