no bad accidents or head injuries....
what can i expect shippen to put me, CLomid or hCG?
my ED is my biggest problem, its quite severe, followed by bad fatigue
i just uped my armour to 1 grain today...
although since taking armour for 1 month, my nightly erections are more frequent and firmer, but there still dead during the day..

Most likely HCG every day, probably little larger dose.
DHEA low, try pregnenolone cream first.
Start some kind estrogen and SHBG management, DIM+I3C etc, (DualAction + TMG + Super MiraForte)
FT3 low, go up to 3grains then recheck.
I was able to ramp up quite fast, your milage mat vary.
I was going by body temperature, pulse plus 2x5mg Corteff backup, needed or not. Ramped down Cortef about month and half latter when I was on 4grains.
4grains was too much, but still no adverse feelings.
Reduced to 3grains because of blood test showing FT3 over top range.
I would do more testing, health is not only T, E and FT3 levels.

will i need cortef?
and will shippen know about all this stuff you recommended too?
is it ok to go from 1 grain to 3 grain, or increase 1/4 grain every 2-3 weeks be best?

When I was increasing the dose I tried to be close to home.
In retrospect nothing happened.
My doctor was not thrilled, but I do 99% of the stuff by myself.
I am 100% sure that Dr Shippen knows about Armour and Cortef, he just is in position that he needs to be more cautious with his advice on ramping up.
Thyroid and adrenals are basically all how you feel, physical testing is secondary. Some of the progress in this area actually hurts some people. I have in mind use of syntetic thyroid hormones.
Always keep months worth of Armour, just in case you cant get it right away.

The leading cause of ED is not low T, its low blood supply to the penis caused by arterial plaque somewhere in the plumbing. You didnt mention your age. Cholesterol level is a good indicator of plaque deposits. Its worth looking into if youre over 35.

That estogen metabolites that are not transported out of the body can also cause hormonal dysruption of the pituatary and hypothalamus

whats an ideal total test/to bio test level...
hardasnails is 54% and says thats not good...
06-01-2007, 08:29 PM
I think I will do same with Free and bioAvailable Estradiol, aim at top of the range but definitely not over it.
But we need all our hormones just in the right amounts.
