    DHT - What is good, and how to raise?


    All numbers quest (25-75 ng/dL range)

    My DHT before treatment: 26.
    Treatment with transdermal gel: 103
    Treatment with IM Cypionate: 37

    Questions:

    1. I do have improved libido since being on Cypionate, but it is still by no means high. I'm wondering if low/normal DHT may be the cause?

    2. (If so) What are the ways to increase DHT. I know transdermal T, especially applied to the scrotum increases DHT. Are there any supplements which might help in more conversion?

    When looking for libido I would look first into E2.

    I do these three tests at Quest;

    Estradiol, Free, LC/MS/MS (36169X)
    Testosterone, Free, Bio/Total (LC/MS/MS)
    Dihydrotestosterone, Free, Serum (36168X)

    I aim at

    FreeE2(0.45 - 0.6)
    BAT~575

    Being on T shots I land at about right (minutely high)
    DHT=69(25-75 ) ng/dL
    FreeDHT=7.52 (1.00-6.20)pg/mL
    FreeDHT%=1.09%(0.62-1.10)%


    Depending on your situation, and I hope you do not have to,
    but conceivably, one could use T shots and Androgel and Arimidex, to balance all the numbers.
    ============================== ==========
    Well, looking for a more rounded health you may want to consider few more items:

    TESTOSTERONE NATION
    Check stomach acids, zinc, magnesium

    Check thyroid, selenium and iodine status
    FreeT3
    TPO
    Start here with measuring body temperature



    Check your

    antioxidants
    vitamins
    minerals
    amino-acids
    gastrointestinal disfunctions
    Detox dysfunction
    malabsorbtion
    cellular energy
    neurotransmitters
    organic acids
    Essential and Fatty acids
    current toxic exposure or need for replenishment of critical minerals.


    that is, consider

    NutrEval 24 hr

    test at Genova Diagnostics.
