    Treatment for pubertal gynecomastia?


    I just spent the day at the beach with my sister and her family. My ~13yo nephew has a pretty bad case of pubescent gyno. He has been overweight historically but has lost a substantial amount of weight over the past year. The gyno started to develope ~6-8mos ago. He is pretty distressed.

    Are there any non-surgical treatments that are effective?

    I tried to go a Google search but I guess there are more perverts than I thought in the world as I get more "porn" links than valid ones when I enter "pubescent"

    From som recent posts, IIRC:

    gyno, two types

    due to high E2

    due to thyroid problems

    I thought that the thyroid issues were related to elevations of estrogen (estrogen dominance). I have not heard nor read that thyroid hormones were a cause of gyno.

    Considering that he is going to puberty, I would think that it more likely related to E2.

    If its down to elevated estrogen i doubt there is anything u can do in such a young boy except healthy food and training and as some other thread suggested, remove the videogames!
    Wich i think is a great idea gyno or no gyno
    I doubt any1 would ever use an AI on such a young boy.

    U said he lost alot of weight this year. Did he go on a diet or started exersising? If not, maybe he has hyperthyriod issues and thats why he lost weight? hyperthyriod lead to increased shbg and as such maybe lead to a bad free-T/-E2 ratio, atleast thats the theory. So if the cause is thyriod and not just elevated e2 in its own it might be worth looking into free t3 free t4 and shbg. maybe doctors intervine in early ages if hyperthyriod. I dont know about this but might be worth looking up.
