Progesterone and Prostate Cancer
(Oak View Ca. USA)
My brother has prostate cancer and has been treated with a reduction in Testosterone (ADT therapy) as well as radiation treatments. He is suffering from severe hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and exhaustion. His M.D. recommends MedroxyPROGESTERone which is a synthetic form of progesterone (a progestin). I prefer him to take a more natural form due to the safety net.
If this is the correct course of action, how many milligrams would be needed to begin with.? Would a lab or saliva test be helpful in this case?
