    My doctors response to my questions on anti-e's, acne, hGH, DHEA

    Just wanted to post the response my doctor had to my questions below. I am on HRT and not doing what one would says is a cycle. Hope this is helpful.

    My doctors response to my questions below:

    Hi,
    We follow estrogen levels with the labs, if you are not having side effects
    or have a high level, there is nothing to gain with anti-estrogen therapy.
    If you notice any of the same nipple symptoms as before, let me know, then
    it would be appropriate to add anti-estrogen therapy.

    The zits may or may not come back, it should be less prone to happen with
    the therapy you are on now.

    Regarding insulin and T-3: Doing this is somewhat popular with weight
    lifters, but one of main goals here is to keep insulin levels LOW. having
    high insulin levels or taking outside insulin is associated with rasing
    blood pressure, developing insulin resistance, and making cholesterol go
    bad. It is one of those things where people may be using it for short term
    gains, but is not something for good (better) health. The T-3 is sometimes
    used as a weight/fet loss aid, but taking it when not approprite can
    actually make your own thyroid quit making its own hormones. it is meant to
    used as replacement for people who do not make enough of their own, and must
    be carefully monitored. I have met several patients who are "thyroid
    cripples" from doing that. It may have been appropriate for your buddies, or
    they might be using it inappropriately.

    DHEA in the proper dosage is very good. if someone takes 5-6 times the doses
    we usually need to get someone's level into the proper range, then there can
    be hormonal conversion. This does not happen at therapeutic doses. The
    levels we aim for are those of a healthy 35-40 year old, there is no
    negative effect on the liver or any other organ. It does not convert to any
    significant amount of any form of testosterone , otherwise I could have
    started you on just that instead of testosterone.

    Sincerely,

    My doctor.....

    Here are the questions I asked him:


    > 1.
    > Would it hurt if I was on some anti-estrogen, just as a precaution, or
    > would
    > this interfere with the cyp?
    >
    >
    > 2.
    > I also developed some zits on my chest and shoulder while on the androgel .
    > That has also gone away too. Do I need to be on something to keep the
    > zits
    > (acne) from coming back? Should I expect to get some acne from the cyp?
    >
    > 3.
    > I have heard that when on hGH its good to also do insulin and T3. Why are
    > my buddies doing insulin and T3 with their hGH?
    >
    > 4. Does the DHEA really help me that much? (Taking 50mg a day) Just not
    > sure why I am taking this too. I heard that DHEA is more prone to convert
    > to DHT and cause balding. Also its hard on the liver. Any of this true?

    You have to talk to a HRT specialist to find that kind of information. Nice post.

    I've talked to a couple doctors and they didn't know SH"T compared to most of the vets/mods on this board. Most of them learn what they know from experience with patients/case studies. Not many patients are AAS users and not many (relatively) case studies have been done on AAS and weighttraining.

    The doctor's that are treating me for HRT are also taking gear too. My local doctor is taking cyp and hgH too. I guess I was lucking and found a few doctors that also have first hand experience. Many of the patients that they treat are older 35 and up but some are pro players and executives. I respect your opinion about most doctors. The doctors I am working with are in the business of restoring test, IGF-1 and etc levels for men over 35 to a 30 year old level. Did not mean to anger anyone hear. Sorry bro.
