What can lower shbg that is proven to work mine is at 39 and has always been at 18-20. Armidex did not do anything for shbg except drove e2 into the ground. and my male e2 ultra sensitive essay came out to be <2 and range <29 and WTF does that mean and how would that be intrepreted that is what i would like to know..could it mean that may be I do have high estrogen? and its a female reading instead of a male. Still have not been able to get answer on this ..and can elevated esterone cause elevated shbg as well since we know its not e2 according to test..can progesterones increase shbg as well?
Factors which together in a balance determine SHBG are:
1. Anabolic hormones generally reduce SHBG. These include testosterone, DHEA, insulin, DHT, and growth hormone.
insulin, and dht could be factors
2. Thyroid hormone, Estrogens, and Progesterone (by increasing estrogen receptors/sensitivity), increase SHBG.
elevated progesterone serum was indicated as well as esterone
So controling the progesterone and esterone may be ticket to balancing the shbg
