    high estradiol and low dht


    My last blood work shows my estradiol to be high on the ultrasensitive test (34 with a range of <29) and total estragens to be 200 (range of 130 or less). Testosterone is 554 (250-1100) and free test (82.5 (35-155), SHBG 32 (10-50), DHT 17 (25-75), progestrone <.1 (<=.2 ng/mL), DHEA 243 (61-1636).

    I have been taking a combo of levothyroxine and armour thyroid and my thyroid is a little lower than I think it should be ft3 2.8 (2.3-4.2) and ft4 1.0 (.8-1.8).

    I have also been taking TD pregnenolone 45mg/day, hoping to raise my progesterone and lower estradiol, but it doesn't seem to be working. I am suffering from fatigue, low libido, trouble losing weight, fat around stomach, and other symtoms. What would be the best way to lower estradiol and raise DHT?

    TD pregenolone may be lower DHT as I have seen this happen with certain people. People who have high DHT I recommend to their Dr TD pregenolone 50 mgs/ml then retest in 5 weeks the proper levels. Total estrogen is a waste of a test, Dr's who are running this are not competent in HRT methodology. Their are other multiple factors which need to be investigated in order for you to drop weight. You only provided 10% of the total puzzle if that.

    Any recomendation for what to replace TD pregnenolone with? I have not had good results iwth arimidex - can't seem to find the sweet spot - always feels too low or too high. How else could I lower estradiol while raising dht?

    One would need to look evaluted why your e2 is high and then go from there. In cases I worked on majority of people when they are properly balanced (out side of hormones) are able to lower AI or get completely off of it. PRoblem with HRT specialist is they do not want to take the time to do this, but look for a quick fix. In many cases it is found out that there are deeper issues which need to be addressed which could compromise a persons health down the road.
