I am heading into week 3 of my HRT and I noticed my sinuses are very dry even with humidfier on and @ 50% could this be due to low E ? I am only taking myomin for AI but I don't know anybody else here taking it to compare dosing
Myomin - Hormone Balancing Formula
They tell you to use up to 9 capsules daily,
how many are you taking?
My humidistat shows 30% now, without humidifier running for last about a month, my sinuses are fine.
Pollen is comming or it is in already here.
Do you have ionizing air cleaners, I think they may iritate sinuses.
When I raise humidity to 50% I also feel stuffed.
For whatewer reason this does not happen when humidity raises naturally.
With natural humidity (outside) above 80-85% I feel better inside in airconditioned house.
Go to Home Depot buy a kit to check for mold in your basement.
Make sure basement is dry, I use dehumidifier there.
I am taking 2 in the morning and 2 at night I have never had dry sinuses like this before with my home at the same heat and humidity. We do not have a basement we live in a townhouse built on a slab. I have 2 more weeks before next blood work so I'll have to wait it out but with no major changes with the 100mg of test cyp I think there may be a low or high E2 situation.
but with out HCG in the mix, assuming everything will work on the long range, you still will have a short range low T problems.
Estrogens are another problem.
You do not have much choice, be patient, you have to allow your doctor to do the experimenting. Make reasonable suggestions if you have some other ideas.
Mine routine (not perfect, but the best I came on my own)
Tcream 100mg/1gram, use 1gram/day
Novarel, HCG, 250IU/every other day
6 pills DIM (Dual-action from LEF) + 1 pill 1000mg TMG
I also have (just in case) Arimidex pills
in the mail Liqui-Dex (easier to figure out 1/4mL)
Liqui-Cial easier and I think more potent than original Cialis
Since you mention on this board, I got 4 bottles of Myomin,
and today I finished one of them. Do not feel any respiratory effects or otherwise.
Your breathing problems must be of some other reason than Myomin.
I also use Cortef, DHEA and Armour Thyroid, to support Adrenals and Thyroid.
Do you have a good blood test?
If you posted it, tell me where it is.
Without a blood test lots of time (and good will) is wasted.
You have to do a blood test to know for sure.
My doctor writes script when I ask for it, I am on self directed deal.
He only does sanity check, but generally I run my show.
Hopefully after Orlando's Antiaging Conference and consultation with Dr Shippen he will have a greater input.
Sorry hi will miss Dr John's input from that conference.
I just hope Dr John comes thru with his intention of selling (on this board) his Estrogen Management Protocol.
My E2 was below 30 when I started on the myomin and test shots perhaps my Dr started too early w/o seeing how I reacted to t shots. I am going to see him again tomorrow and I will ask about the dry sinuses and the myomin, I did some research and it coulb be from low E2 levels I never posted my original blood work just the T updates from last test I will have complete work up in the next 2 weeks and post that
No other way around, have to use blood test to figure out the right dose.
And I do not really care if after a blood test I have to use two grams instead of one or 0.75. Cost is still nill and amount of cream still very small so it easyly fits on my calf.
And all I do, I call my doc's nurse and ask her to check with my doc and call for a next shipment of Tcreme or whatewer I want. Even at 2grams/day Tcreme is less than $1/day.
About your T supplementation, make sure it is frequent, daily best. That is why I like my Tcream.
