Progesterone in men - the norm and pathology

In accordance with the molecular structure, progesterone belongs to the group of steroid hormones. Its normal content in serum ranges from 0.35 to 0.64 nmol / l. Relatively small deviations are not a sign of any abnormalities in the body. In evaluating laboratory tests [...]

Inhibin B in men - the norm and pathology

Abigin "B" in the male body is synthesized by Sertoli cells located in the seminiferous tubules of the testicles. The level of its content in the blood helps in the complex diagnosis of certain diseases and in the conclusion about the function of the sex glands and the glands of the central nervous system. Physiological significance of Ingibin "B" [...]

Methods for determining testosterone levels

In many ways, the accuracy of the analysis of the level of sex hormones depends on the method of its determination (Table 1). Table 1 - Methods for determining the level of androgens (Dedov II, Kalinchenko S.Yu., 2006) METHOD ACCESSIBILITY RELIABILITY COST Determination of total testosterone using the RIA +++ method ++++ Definition […]

FSH in men - the norm and pathology

FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) is a gonadotropic hormone involved in the regulation of the functioning of the sex glands. It is produced and secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. The level of its content in the blood at different periods of life is different (table 1). The physiological role of FSH The action of FSH in the male body is […]

LH in men - the norm and pathology

Luteinizing hormone (LH) together with follicle-stimulating (FSH) and chorionic gonadotropin forms a group of gonadotropic hormones. It is a biological substance involved in the regulation of the function of the sex glands. Cells that are affected by LH, as well as the level of its content in the blood of men […]

Metabolism of testosterone in the body

The main part of testosterone (about 57%) that enters the blood binds to a transport protein — sex-steroid binding globulin (SHGPS). Since the connection of testosterone with SHBG is very strong, which prevents its penetration into androgen-sensitive cells and therefore it does not possess biological activity. The rest [...]

Synthesis of testosterone in the body of a man

Androgens in the male body are subdivided into adrenal and testicular in origin (Table 1). Table 1 - Sources of androgens in male testes (95-98%), adrenals (3-5%) Testosterone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Androsterone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate (DHEA-S), androstenedione Synthesis Adrenal androgens of adrenal androgens can be converted into [... ]

Human chorionic gonadotropin

In studies of modern medicine, one of the leading places is given to the study of the role of hormones and the possibility of their use for the prolongation of the active period in the life of men, as well as the increase in their fertility. In addition to replacement therapy with testosterone drugs (male sex hormone), certain importance is attached to stimulating the synthesis of […]
