    I think my Urologist is they way I solve this. He seems to be open minded and may try different things to fix the issue. I hope. The Endo I saw was a joke.

    Well not really, but I did see my Urologist last Friday. He want's me to do what the Endo says and stop drinking protein shakes and see what my levels are in 3 months. Then I will see the Endo and Urologist again. If the Endo is still a PITA and still blames my diet and doesn't at least try something to make me feel better my Urologist will. I told my Urologist that I fear that the Endo will come up with another BS solution and retest in another 3 months. I don't want this, I'm sick of it. I have had 5 blood tests and want them to at least try a solution. I know it's not my diet. I hope the Endo sees that I still have high E2 and tries to fix that then see how I feel. Maybe he will have me stop eating egg whites LOL.

    I will know more in March then update again.

  4. there is a topic about reducing-estrogen in this forum but I cant url the link because my post count is not high enough... but

    if you have high e2 you need to read that article. I'm still tweaking things but it has helped me quite a bit. its in the over 35 forum so just scroll down

  5. Thanks, I have seen it and have done some of the things in there. I haven't noticed any change yet. I will know more in March.

  6. Ok here is an update. I will be seeing my Endo this Friday. He had me take some tests prior. What was strange he never tested my Estrogen Total this time when this was the test that came back suspect in the past. I had the following tests done prior to this weeks meeting.

    Enhanced Estradiol = 31.57 Not sure what this is for??

    Testosterone Total = 483
    LH = 3.66
    Follicle Stim. Hormone 6.70


    Again I'm not sure why he didn't test Estrogen total? So frustrating, I can already tell that he'll probably tell me that I'm fine or blame Peanut butter or some crap like that. I will post an update Friday, I'm already dissapointed but hope that they at least try something I'm so tired of blood tests!


  7. My endo blames protein shakes

  8. I haven't had a shake in 2-3 months, I haven't seen a change in my health at all. I doubt its the shakes! Who is your Endo, I think we have the same one. LOL

  9. You know, I was at my Drs about 3 weeks ago and we were going over my diet. He also mentioned that high protein diet had adverse impact on libido, could cause testicular shrinkage and also reduced sperm production!!!! I guess if you are over 40 and your body starts slowing down, you need to think about that if your libido drops and you are having a hard time conceiving with your significant other.

    On another note, tribulus and horny goat week works for me. It takes a good 2-3 weeks to kick in but it does the job! + Adding a good NO booster also helps with getting the circulation going down there!

  10. I would need to see some scientific evidence About protein having adverse effect of libido, testicular size and anything along those lines. The last 2 endos I have seen have spent more time lecturing me about going tanning once a week than listening to how I feel and explaining why my free test and TT are low.

    I just got back from my Endo visit. I feel the same as you do, he lectured me about all the sups and things like that again. He also said that he can't do anything because my nubers are in the correct "range". That's great, he told me that over time I should be normal again. So frustrated, I also schduled another apt. with my Urologist, If he doesn't do anthing then I'm going to start taking my Sups listed in the first post of this thread. If I can lower my E2 and increase test then I am willing to bet I will feel like a new man and have my sex drive back, more energy etc....

    I'm not sure what else I can do? Any Ideas?

    I agree. I looked around the internet for some scientific documentation but didn't find anything regarding extra protein intake and testicular atrophy. I did find an article on Soy protein and its potential effects on Testosterone in males as well as testicular shrinkage but when I looked a their work cited, couldn't find any medical citations.

    When I was in my 20's or so I used to drink a lot of soy milk with my shakes but I haven't done that in a while, not sure if that has caused any of my issues or not.

  14. Been researching a lot on soy bc have Hashimotos and hard to find protein or protein bar w out some sort of soy or soy product in it

    I don't think the research is conclusive so I would not worry about until anything is 100% confirmed. In Asia they consume soy and I have not heard males suffering from low testosterone in masses. Albeit what I am saying is anecdotal, but think about that for a second.

  16. I'm not sure but the DR's just look at a range and if you fall between that range there isn't a problem. I'm 5'4 170 lbs, if the DR goes by the BMI index I'm obese! But in reality I'm not, but the DR will tell me I need to lose weight! My Endo was more concerned about his liability than anything today. He told me since I'm in the "normal" range he can't give me test because of the side effects and the judge would come after him! He even referenced Michael Jackson's DR's case hahahaha. Even though I tell him I know I don't feel right etc... Oh well, I think my Urologist is more open minded about this and may try something to make me feel better. I will know on the 28th and let you know how it goes.

  17. Well good luck dude! Sure you'll be fine. Did you try anything anyone suggested for the time being on this post?

    Cabergoline/Dostinex , lowers prolactin levels, dopamine agonist

    Thanks! I think some of the sups I have listed in the first post do the same as this one, no? I haven't taken any sups just yet, I have one more visit to the DR's and then I will decide what to do based on his response.
  23. conventional single supps


    I d avena sativa(also for nicotine urges, quit for the most part)
    tribulus
    macuna prureins(good on moods, good for libid, slows me down a bit, and recharge faster)
    saw palmetto for DHT

    also tongkat ali works wonder on overall performance

  24. I saw my Urologist today, finally something positive to post. He's going to review my blood tests and if he thinks my test in in the range but in the low end of the ranges he is going to try some test shots and see how I do. I told him I do not want creams due to my 6 year old daughter. I also asked about spreading out the shots instead of one large one everymonth and he said he would look into it. Finally a Dr is willing to at least try something and see if it helps me out. I will know more soon and will update you again.

  25. Well back to the same old thing. My Urologist contacted me today and said all my tests are normal. So he wont give me anything at this point. So I'm stuck in the same place as I was 10 months ago. Not sure what to do now?

    Why would you want to lower your DHT? Talk about a performance killer. As long as your DHT isn't sky high, don't take anything to lower it.

    I'm not, but I'm going to try the daa and erase pro now that my Dr. will not do anything. I don't know what else to do at this point.
  28. saw palmetto


    ...took it bc I read somewhere that if you raise your test thru macuna, tribulus, and sativa, ones hair could fall out..so the saw palmetto helps counteract DHT.funnny thng is that it does dampen performance somewhat

  29. I don't care to much about DHT. If I have to shave my head so be it. I'm 42 so who cares at this point LOL. Plus my ears are small LOL!
  30. still...


    rsther have hair
