    Using AI to counteract aging free T


    Can anyone tell me why it is not common to simply take an aromatase inhibitor to counteract the natural increase in aromatase enzyme during the early years of dropping free T that comes naturally with aging?

    I am 35 and have much lower libido than I did a few years ago. I also seem to exhibit all the classic symptoms of low T. Likewise, I have all the classic changes of my bosy that are associated with increasing estrogen/aromatase. My T tests fine. It makes me wonder if I could just lower aromatase it wouldn't have the same effect as turing back the clock to when I did not have these symptoms (ie my aromatase was lower).

    Please correct me if my premise is flawed. My notion is that our free T starts to drop with aging first largely as a result of aromatase levels increasing. Therefore, it seems logical to me that a key to extending one's youth free-T-wise, would be to keep aromatase levels low as when younger. I wonder, then, if it would be a good idea for me to consider some kind of treatment with regular low-level doseage of an AI.

    I mostly meant men in general who would like to retain the free T levels of their youth longer. On average, as men start to hit around 30 or so, their free T levels start to decline in parallel with increasing aromatase levels.

    Are there any theoretical reasons why this couldn't simply be counteracted, if individuals were so inclined, via use of AIs?
