    For now I've ordered more of PP's dermacrine.. was happy to see it come back
    I would have got the tranaderm is 2X the servings and half the price and better overall

    is that artical saying that taking testosterone alone is not good nuff ?
    I think it's just saying how well the synergy between the two works. It states the importance of not just total T, which most basic trt protocols concern themselves with, but also FREE T levels. And how supplementing with DHEA should increase the amount of free T that you have. Making it work very well in conjunction with TRT.

    Google hormone cascade and look at the images. Testosterone is downstream from DHEA in the cascade, but there are other hormones below it as well. So if DHEA levels are low and that is the cause of low testosterone, fixing testosterone levels,alone won't fix the other hormones.

    In dealing with over 4 years experience with consulting with medical dr's in regards to HRT. DHEA drop in the majorty of men who commence HRT. DHEA is needed to back fill the hormonal pathways.

  5. Transdermal DHEA is known to immediately boost test as well (due to enzymes in the skin that convert it)

    Will TD DHEA also give a significant boost in DHT?


    Also, I've read that low DHEA is a marker for many possible diseases... anyone have a list? I've been trying to research ones other than the obvious adrenal issues.

    I owe lab corp close to $600 bucks because in matter of 6 months they increased there prices for testing significantly. I pay 20% of the difference, but still alot even with top of the line insurance. It am 4-5 weeks in no estrogen issues, at all, I have steady energy all day long. No need for napping or get exhausted in the afternoon at 2 pm when it usually hits me.

    Do you think it would be possible to explain a bit more as to why TD delivery of DHEA reduces e2 via downstream metabolism? Put in layman's terms somewhat for us? lol.

    By passing the liver as much as possible will result in less conversion of dhea to e2.
    Measuring it can be a little more difficult since needs to be tested in urine. There are some studies shown to increase serum DHEA-S with TD. Jury is still out
