I'm curious to why blood estrones could be higher then e2 if one was on armidex. I thought e2 goes into e1 so therefore e1 should be suppressed from the armidex, hower ever if one is taking hcg could this swing the ratio the other way? Would it be advisiable to get the estrone metabolism fixed before implimenting HCG possible due to the fact that it could over flood the estrogen metabolism if it has not been stabilized first. Information about DIm is intersting, thing is that we know that it affects androgen receptors in the prostate which is a good thing, but can it affect receptors any where else? One of my freinds mentioned about taking DIM to control e2 to Shippen and had mixed reviews about it. Again when one hand talks to the other information does get altered, but from what he understood that DIm works in the prostrate to cause androgen receptor down grades which is a good thing, but mentioned about new studies coming out saying it may affect other areas as well..other then just prostate. I just want to clarify the truth is all. Or could it before the fact people are taking it you do not need it and causing more damage to receptors. Now that could be a plausible reason..Time will tell..
