DANAZOL lowers the liver’s output of SHBG, but, TT also drops,
thus making the stand alone use of DANAZOL (to raise FT) futile.
Shawn, you have access to more blood tests than anyone here,
so opine for me please…..
Does DANAZOL (since it is an analog of Testosterone) lower TT because it attaches
to the hypothalamus Androgen/Estradiol RECEPTORS?
Does DANAZOL lower TT because it lowers SHBG and therefore increases
FT? And then the HPTA set-point lowers LH output?
Do you think DANAZOL may be doing a little bit of both?
Oral WINSTROL (an analog of DHT) lowers SHBG, and I see no reports of it impacting TT.
Aromasin has raised my TT to about 900, but my SHBG is constantly above 70 ( even before the AI ), and my FT is suppressed.
I'm wondering if 12.5mg ED of DANAZOL might increase my FT more than the impact of lowered TT would be??
