  4. He is very knowledgeable in the area of HRT. He is one of the bio-identical pioneers. He will have you get a 24hr urine comprehensive hormone profile and base your treatment from that.
    He has me on a compounded testosterone (about the size of a pea) applied to the scrotum. I am also taking supplements to control DHT and estrogens.

    Please provide details.

    Compounded Testosterone, is that cream or gel, what strenght, mg/mL

    What you use to control DHT

    What you use to control estrogens.

    What estrogens are you controling, name them.

    E1
    E2
    2-OH
    16-OH

    How often urine testing is done.
    Does he test for Testosterone in urine only (no blood?).

    Have you tried HCG first before you have been put on supplemental T?
    Are you using HCG now?
    .
    .

  6. John B ...thank you.

  7. The testosterone I use is a compounded cream 25mg/0.1ml.

    These are the estrogens we are working on:

    Estrone

    Estradiol

    Estriol

    as well as 2/16 ratio

    You can go to Maridian Valley Lab web site to see what is in the whole 24hr urine hormone profile. I have not had any blood test for testosterone with Dr. Wright. I am testing every 6 months now, 3 months at first.

    For DHT I am using GLA (I chose to use borage oil) along with zink and I have just added Saw Palmetto.

    For the estrogens I am using Myomin and eating a proper diet to control insulin resistance.

    I have not tried HCG.

    I will look at the rest, thank you.

    Apparently GLA is something to keep eye on.
    Not only GLA, the whole Fatty Acid analysis.
    After I did mine analysis, I found that (among few others) I was lacking on GLA.
    Actually my D6D is lacking, so my fats are affected by this.
    I am using EPO and borage oil now.

    Evantually I will repeat that test, but for now my peeing got much better. Less frequency, less urgency.


    What do you do to control insulin resistance.
    Mine
    Hemoglobin A1C=5.6%
    I would like to get it lower.

  9. For insulin sensitivity I eat a mostly paleo diet
    I also take 5000 i.u. vitamin D daily.

    One thing to watch out for with GLA is, some of them contain more phytosetrogens than others.

    Clean diet - no sugar, no flour. Resistance training.

    Metformin is best (but requires scrip).

    Also, ALA, cinnamon, fenugreek, gymnema sylvestra, fish oil, resveratrol (Sirtris has a drug version of resveratrol which combined w/ Metformin shows promising results for Type 2 Diabetes), et al.

    I personally avoid supplementing with the heavy metals chromium and vanadium, but they have their proponents.

    Thanks for all the advice you provide on this and other forums JanSz,

    Robert

  13. Ok since it's my thread I'll play with the new topic. What is insulin sensitivity

    Very true that is why i highly emphasis take what body needs no more no less and the body will rebalance it self. People start to self expereiment making the imbalance worth and more difficult to trace.
