After many weeks of looking like she was going to pop any moment, Charlotte finally had her calf this morning just after 10am.  She had a fairly quick and easy birth and we were lucky enough to be able to watch, photograph and video the whole birth which was pretty exciting seeing as it was […]

Spring is finally here, the days are warming and the vegie garden is progressing, although slowly as we are still having frosts every night.  In an attempt to get a headstart with some seedlings, I have started some seeds in a makeshift coldframe – white polystyrene vegie boxes covered with clear plastic.  The inside temperature […]

We ended up with 11 chicks hatched from the first lot and seven from the second lot and they are all now happily growing up in a re-furbished broody box.  From the second lot, none of the purchased Auracana eggs hatched, only one partially developed which was disappointing.  All of the others were from our […]

The property has seemed really empty since we sold our first lot of Dorper sheep at the end of last year due to the drought.  It was lucky that we did as we certainly would not have had enough feed for them and the horses through summer, especially as we are still hand feeding with […]

After a very nerve wracking wait, two more chicks hatched […]

Well Baby Baa made it through the first night and pretty much never looked back. He recieved an antibiotic shot on day two, and very quickly got the hang of walking on three legs.  It took a few adjustments but we managed to splint and bandage his leg from above the elbow to his fetlock […]

While the cities and metropolitan areas slow down for the end of the year, Christmas and New Years is a busy time in the country.  Many farmers go straight from shearing to harvesting with only a meal break in between.

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
