This study is a joke. “Indian” is not, was not, and will never be an ethnic group. There are more than 2000 different ethnic groups in India, and all major races are represented as well. The “Indians” in this study could just as well have been the NE Indians who live in Assam and are no different in genetic makeup from other East Asians/Chinese. They could also just as easily have been the lower caste Indians who have a completely different genetic makeup from the higher caste Indians and a completely different phenotype as well. Any study that generalizes a subcontinent like India or a diverse region like South Asia is pure trash. An analogous study would randomly sample “American men” as if they were an ethnic group, when they are not even a race, but a nationality with all races and thousands of ethnic groups being represented. It would make no sense whatsoever to sample “American men” and come to a conclusion about all American men, all of whom would be very different based on the ethnic group being sampled. I can’t believe that the author of this article is unaware of this fact. Shameful.
If a young man's low testosterone is a problem for a couple trying to get pregnant , gonadotropin injections may be an option in some cases. These are hormones that signal the body to produce more testosterone. This may increase the sperm count. Hedges also describes implantable testosterone pellets, a relatively new form of treatment in which several pellets are placed under the skin of the buttocks, where they release testosterone over the course of about three to four months. Injections and nasal gels may be other options for some men.
Hey Ali, what did you do during the period where you were 17-18 to optimize your hormone production? I’m seventeen and I feel like a late bloomer. I’m pretty thin, at 138 lbs, I’m a 5’8 African American, and my shoulders are about 41 inches around. I want to optimize my hormones in order to hit the maximum height for my genetic potential, grower bigger everywhere, develop a more masculine face ( chisleled jawline, wide jaw, course features, etc). Do you have your personal journal in the form of an article anywhere on the site (Kind of new to the site)? Also, I start a strength program. I’m lifting with my schools football team for 30 mins before soccer practice, but soon I will have a gym membership and do starting strength or Greyskull LP.
