Hormonally challenged? (It's a real problem)
Dear Wray, I am a 62 year old man with a complex history. I have been treated for hyperthyroid with I-131 thyroid oblation and am on a lifetime maintenance dose of 150 mcg. of daily levothyroid. I have RRMS which is in remission (10 years). Treatment is daily subcutaneous injection of Copaxone, 1 ml. This is glatiramer acetate.
My attention was arrested while reading your compilation of the benefits of progesterone. Namely the reparative and evidently regenerative properties on central nervous system disease. It goes without saying that this by itself would qualify me as a potential subject for its use. That notwithstanding the multiple benefits on health generally. I have a clinically measurable, though relatively small testosterone deficiency, which is currently under treatment with 5 mg/day Androderm testosterone transdermally.
Which all brings me to my first question. If the Androgen is aromatizing to an estrogen precursor or to estrogen, would I benefit from Natpro daily? Would this perhaps stop or reverse the minimal breast enlargement I am noting? I will appreciate your answering opinion as I am considering starting with Natpro in October. Sincerely.
