Can dihydrotestosterone cause high psa levels?

Yes?: Dihydrotestosterone (dht) is the bio-active form of testosterone(t). Blocking t to Dht by 5-alpha reductase inhibitors such as Finasteride or Dutasteride will decrease psa by some 50%. So, we can say more Dht may cause psa elevation. But, still remember, to a great extent, a healthy body has all bio-feed-back automation to regulate the balance of substances of metabolism.

How can you increase DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels?

How can you increase DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels?

Why do u want more?: Testosterone is metabolized (broken down) into Dht & Estradiol (e2). Testosterone is anabolic (makes muscles grow). Dht is androgenic (makes you more male). But too much Dht can also lead to hair loss and prostate enlargement. So we don't typically try to raise Dht (although if you take an aromatase inhibitor to shut down e2, you might raise Dht via seesaw effect), rather we lower Dht via 5ari. ...Read more

Why is my DHT (dihydrotestosterone) level high?

Why is my DHT (dihydrotestosterone) level high?

Lucky, I guess!: Sorry, i'm feeling flippant tonight. Testosterone is metabolized (broken down) into Dht & Estradiol (e2). How much is "wasted" is an individual matter (we don't have much natural control). We can try to affect the ratio of wastage, eg dht:e2, by exercising & losing fat, which might decrease e2 & increase Dht (think of a seesaw). If you're losing hair or have enlarged prostate, 5ari will lower dht. ...Read more

Where can I buy andractim cream (dihydrotestosterone) in india?

Why?: Andractim is a cream/gel that supposedly contains dht. So what? It is not regulated by any recognized medical entity. There are no legitimate studies that it does anything useful in an adult male. The side effects and dangers of using it are unknown. It is a scheme to feed into male insecurities about sexuality, muscle enhancement, etc. That is not validated. Dont waste your money. ...Read more
