So this morning I had a thoracic C-Scan.  I met with medical records over the mess with my last lab results.  Well everything was audited and as it turns out they have verified my PSA is .88.  A 30 year old man would love a .88.  I'm 55.  As the chart from the NIH shows, my PSA is amazing.  I can do as much as 2 gallons of water between 6-11 p.m. and not have to get up and go to the bathroom.  Why?  The perfect PSA.  Ladies - it is a test  which measures prostate function - more or less.

"Older men typically have slightly higher PSA levels than younger men. Commonly used ranges are as follows:
  • Men below age 50: PSA less than 2.5
  • Men 50 - 59 years: PSA level less than 3.5
  • Men 60 - 69 years: PSA level less than 4.5
  • Men older than 70 years: PSA level less than 6.5"

Side note - I take a double dosage of testosterone Androgel.  They are learning more and more about how to use Androgel.  Dr. Teo Ong recommended instead of double application on the shoulders to do one application on the belly and one on the shoulders.  Well my testosterone jumped.

Energy, sex drive, muscle tone, does it help the prostate, what?

At my age it means not getting up in the middle of the night to pee, it means I probably have a very very low chance of developing prostate cancer or any prostate problems during my life time.

Trust me I know of a lot of men around my age already on medication to reduce the size of their prostate. A swollen prostate can cause peeing problems and an indication of more complex disease later on.

The prostate also impacts ejaculation.
