Anti-baldness drug can cause men to lose interest in alcohol

Posted: June 14, 2013 at 3:48 pm

Finasteride, or Propecia, can also cause sexual dysfunction Two-thirds of these men will experienced a reduced desire to drink alcohol - even after finishing the drug Could be because it reduces brains ability to make the hormones which make alcohol tempting By Emma Innes PUBLISHED: 11:21 EST, 14 June 2013 | UPDATED: 11:23 EST, 14 June 2013 Two thirds of men who take finasteride, and who develop side effects such as low sex drive, drink less as a result of the drug Some men who take anti-baldness drugs lose interest in alcohol, new research has revealed. Those who take finasteride (also known as Propecia) to stop their hairline receding also tend drink less alcohol after starting the medication. The research, carried out at the George Washington University, revealed that two thirds of men who take the drug, and who develop side effects such as low sex drive, drink less as a result. It showed that this side effect continues even after the man has stopped taking the medication. Finasteride is the only once-a day pill developed to treat mild to moderate male pattern hair loss. In a clinical study of 535 men taking the drug, 99 per cent had visible … Continue reading

Baldness drug curbs interest in alcohol, study says- Fla. mom dies after butt enhancing injections

Posted: at 3:48 pm

Some men who take the drug finasteride (Propecia) to slow a receding hair line may also find it reduces their interest in drinking alcohol, new research reveals. Almost two-thirds of the men in the study noticed they were drinking less alcohol than before taking Propecia, said study researcher Dr. Michael Irwig, an endocrinologist and assistant professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine. But the decrease in drinking seen in the study may not be found in all men who use the popular hair-loss treatment. (A higher dose of finasteride is also prescribed to men for an enlarged prostate, and is sold as Proscar.) The study, which was aimed at better understanding the drug's sexual side effects, looked at only younger men, ages 46 and under, who had quit taking the medication for male-pattern hair loss for at least three months, yet continued to experience effects such as a reduced sex drive and erectile dysfunction. Although the exact mechanism for reduced alcohol consumption is not known, Irwig said he suspects that Propecia interferes with the brain's ability to make certain hormones, known as neurosteroids, which are likely linked to drinking alcohol. The findings are the first to link … Continue reading

BPA linked to obesity risk in puberty-age girls

Posted: June 13, 2013 at 9:48 am

Public release date: 12-Jun-2013 [ | E-mail | Share ] Contact: Catherine Hylas Saunders [email protected] 202-585-2603 Kaiser Permanente OAKLAND, Calif., June 12 Girls between 9 and 12 years of age with higher-than-average levels of bisphenol-A (BPA) in their urine had double the risk of being obese than girls with lower levels of BPA, according to a Kaiser Permanente study published today in the journal PLOS ONE. "This study provides evidence from a human population that confirms the findings from animal studies that high BPA exposure levels could increase the risk of overweight or obesity," said De-Kun Li, MD, PhD, principal investigator of the study and a reproductive and perinatal epidemiologist at the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, Calif. BPA is used to make plastics and other materials, such as cash register receipts. It is a known endocrine disruptor with estrogenic properties. In children and adolescents, BPA is likely to enter the body primarily through the ingestion of foods and liquids that have come into contact with BPA-containing materials, Dr. Li said. "Girls in the midst of puberty may be more sensitive to the impacts of BPA on their energy balance and fat metabolism," Dr. Li said. While BPA … Continue reading

Sexual performance anxiety

Posted: at 3:46 pm

Performance anxiety: it can strike anywhere, at any time. Photo: iStockphoto Performance anxiety is one of the main sexual and emotional problems men experience. Sex is supposed to be a pleasurable experience, but it is very difficult to feel sexy or intimate with your partner - and especially with a new partner - when you suffer from sexual performance anxiety. We are constantly bombarded with society's ideals of male sexuality in the media, think of the Want Longer Lasting Sex? ads which create unrealistic expectations of what a man should look like and how he should perform in the bedroom. These adverts prey on the insecurities of men who may have no sexual dysfunction at all, especially inexperienced young men. It is no surprise then, that for some men, all these expectations can affect their confidence. Anxiety and stress create cortisol and adrenalin - definitely not ideal hormones for sexual interactions. High levels of stress and anxiety, which inhibit the blood flow in the penis, can result in erection difficulties, premature ejaculation and inability to ejaculate. Advertisement Performance anxiety can start suddenly, even in stable healthy relationships. Sometimes a single occasion, where a man loses his erection or ejaculates too … Continue reading
