What are DHT levels and how can I test the levels?

Dihydrotestosterone: Dht is one of two metabolites of testosterone (estradiol is the other). You can easily check for both via simple blood draw. Reference ranges will vary depending upon lab & equipment used, therefore specific test ordered. High Dht is associated w/hair loss & enlarged prostate.

Can high DHT cause prostate problems?

Can high DHT cause prostate problems?

Yes: High Dht (dihydrotestosterone) is associated w/prostate enlargement (and hair loss). Medical solution is 5ari, eg Finasteride (proscar (finasteride) & propecia) or Dutasteride (avodart), which stops conversion of testosterone into dht. But Dht sits on other side of seesaw from e2 (estradiol) so lowering Dht might raise e2, leading to erectile dysfunction + loss of libido. So be very careful! ...Read more

What are side effects of DHT blockers?

Increase Estradiol: Testosterone is converted into both Dht (dihydrotestosterone) & e2 (estradiol). Think of these two as balanced on opposite ends of seesaw. If you block/decrease dht, you could potentially increase e2. Too much e2 in men leads to moobs (man boobs), nipple sensitivity, gynecomastia, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, etc. ...Read more

Is DHT produced when you have an erection?

No: Dht (dihydrotestosterone) is produced by 5 Alpha reductase (5ari) converting testosterone. You can stop this from happening by using a 5 Alpha reductase inhibitor such as Finasteride or dutasteride. However, beware that testosterone is also converted into Estradiol (female hormone) so that if you keep it from going down one pathway, it might choose the other. ...Read more
