    Question DIM Dosage?

    I don't know much about this, but I heard that too high of a dose of DIM can increase aromatase enzyme/raise estrogenic affects. Is this true? Is there a suggested dose?

    [20, M, 180lbs, No cycle]

    That's actually true. It would take a good amount though. Beyond the norm.

    OK thanks. Would something like 250mg daily be sufficient?

    Well, most don't go over 200 but they combine it with zinc and copper for more effectiveness. That said, if you're thinking it will take the place of an AI, it will not. Why do you feel you need it?

    Ah I see. The one I was looking at is Olympian Labs DIM-250.

    I am wondering if it will work in conjunction with Raloxifene for gyno.

    I posted this over in the SERM thread, it sums up my situation:

    I'm 20 and have had pubescent gyno for 6 years (Lump type, a few areas of fatty tissue but the only visible part is the puffy nipple). I want to avoid surgery because of the cost and recovery time. Just stumbled on this thread and it this information is much more useful than any physician I've talked to regarding this issue. I haven't used steroids and don't plan to because my goal is only 200lbs (currently 180). That being said, I have a few questions.

    * Is it a good idea to see an endocrinologist to check for low test before hand?
    * Should you use an AI like DIM with raloxifene? (I'm assuming my estrogen levels are not right)
    * Is this anything to be concerned about (Wikipedia):

    Adverse reactions

    Common adverse events considered to be drug-related were hot flashes and leg cramps.[4]

    Raloxifene may infrequently cause serious blood clots to form in the legs, lungs, or eyes. Other reactions experienced include leg swelling/pain, trouble breathing, chest pain, vision changes. Raloxifene is a teratogenic drug, i.e., can cause developmental abnormalities such as birth defects.

    Black box warnings were added to the label of raloxifene in 2007 warning of increased risk of death due to stroke for postmenopausal women with documented coronary heart disease or at increased risk for major coronary events, as well as increased risks for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.[4]

    A report in September 2009 from Health and Human Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality suggests that tamoxifen and raloxifene, used to treat breast cancer, significantly reduce invasive breast cancer in midlife and older women, but also increase the risk of adverse side effects.[5]

    I know guys using TRT dosages really seem to like DIM. Keeps them from needing an AI or SERM,,,Apparently anyway. I would need to see some lab work to be sold myself.

    Olympian dim-100 is good . In my experience 1 a day is fine (100mg).
