Molecular targeting: These agents are designed to selectively knock out key pathways your tumor may use to grow. Presumably you already had your tumor tested for these different mutations. Ask the doctor offering these options to explain their rationale. These are investigational studies and many of the treatment costs may be covered-ask. ...Read more
Specific & limited: Pregnenolone is an adrenal hormone made from cholesterol, and is the pre-cursor for sex-steroid hormones. It is said to 'improve mood, ' but no strong data support. To my knowledge there is no role for it's use as a supplement. Aromatase inhibitors are for treatment of some breast cancers; they're also used off-label for ovulation induction in women. No other appropriate uses to my knowledge. ...Read more
If a natural weightlifter took anti cancer medication (aromatase inhibitor), shouldn't his testosterone level increase dramatically?
Increase somewhat: Aromatase inhibitors inhibit the effect of estrogen on the pituitary gland as well as elsewhere. As a result they can increase pituitary hormones that stimulate testosterone production modestly, not usually dramatically. By the way, these medications are banned by most major sports ...Read more
Hormonal therapy: Aromatase inhibitors are a form of hormonal therapy for post menopausal patients. They are effective only in er+ cases. They block the conversion of other hormones to estrogen via the enzyme aromatase. In premenopausal patients they actually stimulate the ovaries to increase estrogen production. Hormonal therapy is systemic treatment, reduces local recurrence, and reduces risk of 2nd primaries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Aromatase: FTM requires two things: 1: I do not take care of such patients unless I am notified by a Psychologist who is taking care of the patient. 2: I do not see any indication for aromatase inhibitors to be given in addition to testosterone. I have been fortunate to have reasonable success with FTM and MTF. ...Read more
No: Tamoxifen belongs to a class of drugs called selective estrogen receptor modulators (serms). It works by blocking the binding of estrogen to estrogen receptors, thus disabling hormone-sensitive breast cancer cells. Aromatase inhibitors block the conversion of androgens to estrogens, effectively removing estrogen from the body (in postmenopausal women). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Consult your plan: If you have normal renal function the preferred brand for your healthplan is the one to take - if you feel there is a need to change from a sulfonylurea to a dpp4i. Dpp4is have the same efficacy in lowering bs as glimeperide. Dpp4is have been implicated in increased pancreatitis and pancreatic and thyroid cancers. A better choice if you have good renal function is metformin. ...Read more
Maybe but for what?: All medications, prescription & otc, as well as all dietary supplements, have potential side effects. There is no free lunch, no side effect free pill, whether medication or supplement. Aromatase inhibitors are approved for use in breast cancer in which case the potential risk of liver damage, hypertension, etc probably outweighs risk of recurrent breast cancer. So talk to your doc re what's right. ...Read more
In rheum. arthritis?: Osteoporosis is a known complication of rheumatoid arthritis (ra). The bone loss is related to features of the patient (usually a postmenopausal woman), corticosteroid therapy, and the underlying arthritis disease.

20yr male 69' 140lb... considering taking estrogen blockers to increase testosterone and build muscle. Thoughts?
Bad bad idea: No offense meant, but don't do it. That's medically unsound and the limited studies don't even support that it works. This kind of idea should be in fairy tales by now. Surely you can bulk up with sound training and without these crazy body-builder fads? Good wishes. ...Read more

Complex problem: Different drugs with different levels of cytochrome interference. Follow the checker. ...Read more
Low T: Hypoandrogenism - signs include low libido, no energy level, lack of motivation, and central weight gain. If a person has the symptoms they should seek help from the primary care physician to check their testosterone level. If the testosterone level is indeed found to be low, they should undergo further assessment and treatment by their primary care physician or by a urologist. ...Read more
If anabolic steroids increase estrogen(e) levels, will boosting testosterone naturally(ie taking vit d, lifting weights, abstinence) also increase e?
Your "natural": Methods do not "boost" testosterone. That's determined by endocrine feedback mechanisms and other factors. Any increase in testosterone will lead to minor increases in estrogen due to hormone conversion, but they are insignificant and meaningless except in people who take excessive exogenous testosterone. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more
Need help in reducing e2 (oestradiol). Need some advice in dosing aromatase inhibitors. Tried arimidex as well as aromasin (exemestane) but got bone mineral loss..
Go see your doctor: Presumably you're taking Arimidex (anastrozole) to control your Estradiol to treat gynecomastia (rather than trying to jack up your testosterone). Loss of bone mineral density is a known consequence of excessively lowering one's estradiol. I'm not clear what kind of trouble you're having w/your dosing since you didn't mention your regimen. Regardless, you need to address your concern w/your doctor. ...Read more
