We're discussing issues related to the prostrate on the "35 and over" section and one of the posters cited your comments on DHT and E2 as it relates to the prostrate. I wanted to ask clarification if I may.
Last August I suffered from prostatitis. Bad enough to where urine flow was totally stopped and a catheter tube inserted. I had just finished a heavy cycle which included 1 gram of tren (suspension, A and E), 1 gram of test and HCG per week. I didn't use any AI/SERMs, because I didn't notice any sides. I immediately got a full blood panel when I was discharged and found my E2 to be 35 (Lab Corp) but my DHT was over the top. I concluded, as did the physicians, that it was DHT that caused the enlarged prostrate, not E2. Since then, I've been concerned about my DHT levels and not overly concerned about the E2, although the E2 is well within limits. Then again, I'm only on a TRT dose of 200 mgs per week.
Is it your belief that DHT has little or no bearing on an enlarged prostrate? My understanding is that the prostrate has receptors with equal affinity for both E2 and DHT, but since I seem to be more DHT sensitive, it's DHT that I worry about and not E2.
