    Estrogenís effect on gallbladder

    Apparently elevated estrogen can cause the formation of gallstones. Found this out during a follow up with a gastroenterologist. I was there for a different reason but asked him about some sharp pains Iíve been getting on my far right side beneath the lowest rib. I suspected it was gallbladder related and he confirmed. He asked me if I take anabolic steroids , and when I replied ďno,Ē he told me that elevated estrogen seems to cause gallstone formation. Iím gonna get a sonogram when I get back from my trip and post back in here. I havenít checked my estrogen in a while but it was elevated even on TRT last time I checked.

    It is known that women on HRT or hormonal contraceptives have elevated chance of gallbladder issues compared to the general female population. Have you done a lipid panel recently? You may have underlying cholesterol issues.

    Elevated estrogen is a big issue, one which will eventually kill you. Its best to keep it under control

    I have been dealing with this garbage prob as long as I have dropped my Ai's

    Passing gallstones isn't exactly fun - although, I have whole procedure/clense for this "shit" now when it gets out of hand < again, not exactly fun



    That's how I always linked it(even without solid MD proof) - like, my mom said(who had to have her gallbladder removed) - "you're not a woman, you shouldn't have these probs". Oh, on the contrary - I run my estro levels at about 100 < I've run an ai & pushed it into normal range(under 40 or so) and, I lose my massive horninness almost immediately after taking even just 12.5mg of eXemastane (which is my go to Ai)

    I've run my total test & estrodial levels all over the place to just figure out where I feel best. Right now, I'm pushing my test even lower(175mg weekly from 250mg weekly) + 90mg of Deca & a daily 25mg Proviron . And, I feel fucking excellent - but, gallstones are still slowly forming. Every 3-5 months I pass these bastards & man, it sure ain't fun - to say the least.

    Also, like mentioned above and plenty of other places - estro is the killer. It fucks with a lot of different functions in our body - i.e. prostate for example


    But, wtf - go figure, it's the side effect estro that gives me that 17 year old horny ass feeling - but, apparently at a cost


    Like seriously, how does a tranny get away with this shit?! They run estrogen & no matter what, they're still a guy - but, I guess at that point gallstones aren't at the top of your list of priorities < not comparing juicers to trannies so much, but we're both pumping away synthetic hormones into our bodies

    I knew about the effect of estrogen on the prostate, but not on the gallbladder. Didn’t know you can pass gallstones. My grandma had gall stone removal surgery and those things were huge, like the size of walnut seeds.

    I know AIs hurt the lipid panel, that’s why I usually stay away. Got a ton of Ari index on hand if my numbers are crazy.

    I have a whole recipe, you’ll pass em

    Drink apple juice for a week, then slam a tablespoon of epsom salt in a glass of warm glass of water

    Look it up - I pass em regularly

    They caught one in process when during one of my 1st ER visits

    The key is just not to get the gallbladder inflamed

    The prostate shit & pancreatic probs is what I’m worried about long term

    You’re not fuckin with me lol? Is this supposed to make you shit your brains out or something? If they pass, they go into the colon, so maybe it makes sense to clear out everything, I don’t know.

    Why are you worried about the pancreas, though?

    Man, you sound like a close friend of mine - I’m like man, “are you fucking with me, you should def know this” < serious. He’s like, what do I do < I’m like wth, u do this all day. But, he still asks

    Yes, the apple juice softens the gallstones & the epsom salt makes your gallbladder contract - I did some research while being in a pretzel on the bathroom floor

    I pass them regularly < it still sucks ass, but I have them under much better control


    Why the pancreas - well, it’s another organ the hormones seem to effect - I can’t just have my gallbladder removed to be 100% symptom free

    Just got my PCP to get me another ultrasound of the abdomen/gallbladder

    This should be interesting - since I have been feeling aches in the gallbladder region. Ran my self prescribed liver/gallbladder flush < fuck, these aren’t fun

    I asked my PCP about flush effectiveness along with TUDCA - she’s very pro, “if it’s got stones & giving issues - pull it”

    We’ll c how this goes - 2 days post flush/cleanse I feel better than I have in a month

    I added olive oil butter for a fat, to jump start the liver(not pictured) and, I run all of this much differently than the online stuff we see
