I am 37 years old and wiegh 140 lbs. After a blood test and compaints to my doctor of always being tired, very hard to lose weight ( exercising like crazy), and severe PMS I have recently been placed on Prometrium 200 mg at night along with 7 keto DHEA 50 mg in the am and also Testosterone gel 5 mg in the am. And a B12 shot once a week, with a diagnosis of being deficient in these few areas. After 2 months of this therapy I am experiencing a few odd effects. My body in the last few weeks seems to crave sugar / carbs and therefore I retain fluid in the middle (abdominal ) area. My question is, is this due to too much of one of the above medications or too little of one ? I have read many articles about Progesterone and how it is a diurectic but wonder if I need to increase my dose.
I would love any feedback, as I am frustrated with this process.
