High Testosterone In Women Symptoms

Posted in RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 3:52 am by PCOSLady


PCOS Lady:

First time having my testosterone levels checked and ever being interested in them… They are high! Stress i know i am under daily in my current living environment!
~ I have all my test results from 2003… I do glance back at them at times…
~ A little known symptom is having hair on top of your toes…
~
A few more odd symptoms are stray dark hairs on your above lip, your chin, your breast and inner thighs…
~
Interesting to know the symptoms and what lowers testosterone…
~
Just read from a Dr Oz show women in later years are best to have testosterone levels of 50 – 80, which is that of a woman in her 30’s…
~

~
SYMPTOMS OF HIGH TESTOSTERONE IN WOMEN
~
High testosterone symptoms include hair loss, hirsutism (unwanted male-pattern hair growth), unexplained rapid weight gain, virilization, acne, aggressiveness, irritability and missed menstrual cycles. Decreased breast size and a deepening of the voice will occur along with a coarsening of the skin.
~
CAUSES: HORMONAL IMBALANCES
~
The main causes of high testosterone in females are hormonal imbalances that can happen at any age, and often sneak up gradually, with the 30s being the predominant time for things to get worse.
~
COMMON TESTOSTERONE INCREASING DISEASES
~
Adrenal gland disorders and ovarian problems, often caused by other hormonal imbalances, create an over-abundance of testosterone. The most common testosterone-increasing disease is polycystic ovarian syndrome. Diabetes can also lead to these endocrine upsets.
~
RARER DISORDERS THAT CAUSE HIGH TESTOSTERONE
~
Other disorders that cause high testosterone in women include acromegaly, adrenal neoplasm disorders, Conn’s syndrome, Cushing’s syndrome, dwarfism, gigantism or multiple endocrine neoplasm 1 and 2. An androgen-producing adrenal or ovarian tumor can lead to high levels of testosterone, as can congenital adrenal hyperplasia and thyroid disorders in general.

SOLUTIONS FOR HIGH TESTOSTERONE IN WOMEN
~
By Juliana Robertson, eHow Contributor
Testosterone is produced in the ovaries and adrenal glands of women. High testosterone levels in women tend to cause a variety of issues. Elevated levels of this male synonymous hormone can cause excessive facial hair, increased muscle mass, waistline body fat and adult onset acne. The most common cause of this testosterone increase in women is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This disorder causes multiple cysts like follicles to accumulate in the ovaries. The ovary begins to produce and secrete high levels of testosterone.
~
LIFESTYLE CHANGES
~
Implementing changes to your lifestyle can effectively reduce high testosterone levels. Low risk changes include reducing stress levels and following a healthy eating regimen. Women with testosterone imbalances have successfully lost weight through following a low carbohydrate/diabetic eating plan. Adding fruit, salad, fish, poultry and nuts to your diet can help to reduce testosterone levels. Consuming fried, sugary and oily foods contribute to testosterone increases and weight gain. Practicing stress reduction techniques, like yoga and meditation, can be extremely beneficial. Combining these practices with regular exercise and a balanced diet will help to improve your overall quality of health.
~
NATURAL REMEDIES
~
Alternative medicine is an effective way to treat elevated testosterone levels safely and naturally. This approach involves little to no risk, with various therapies utilized for treatment. Herbal remedies effectively treat testosterone imbalances at its source. These options are easy to follow, and cost effective. Two types used for treatment are Phytoestrogenic and Non estrogenic herbs. Phytoestrogenic herbs (ex: black cohosh) contain plant manufactured estrogen. They help to alleviate imbalances through introducing additional hormones within the body. Non estrogenic herbs (ex: macafem) do not contain any estrogen properties. They stimulate natural hormonal production by nourishing endocrine and pituitary glands. They balance testosterone naturally by stimulating the body to produce its own hormones.
