Puberty and male adult voice
« on: January 22, 2016, 10:45:18 AM »

Hello. With all the talk and speculation about growth stunting during puberty because of an "imperfect" lifestyle, which normally means imperfect nutrition or not enough sleep, which is often talked about here, I wondered something else. Can this imperfect lifestyle affect your adult voice? Quite often I notice that while my dad, now in his late fifties, has a quite deep and "strong" voice, while mine is, well, not a "girl's voice", but certainly quite higher and kind of less "masculine". So I wondered if this could have to do with the lifestyle you live during your growth phase? Can imperfect diet, imperfect sleep and imperfect exercise during puberty not only affect your final height but also your adult voice, or is this aspect rather purely dependent on genetics?

Voice has to do with testosterone. Testosterone is known to accelerate the growth plates maturation... If you have low testosterone (and therefore a high estrogen/testosterone ratio) you should have had reached a highier final height. Also, testosterone according to medical literature is responsible for the length of your torso (this is why men with kleineftler syndrome are known to have really long limbs compared to their torso).

I was under the impression that sleep did increase your testosterone levels..... How else would you explain morning wood?  ;)

Testosterone levels are at their highest in the morning when you first wake up..... I know that sleep induces HGH release, but haven't researched the effect that sleep has on testosterone.

So is that a yes or no to my initial question? Would my voice be lower if I had had better nutrition, done more sports, etc. in my teenage years?

Not to my knowledge... I was a couch potatoe during my teenage years yet I have a baritone voice

Another question, if this is the case, why are men taller than women? Men after all have much higher testosterone levels then women, so their growth plates should close faster than women's?
