Is A Dhea Supplement Safe To Use For An Adrenal Imbalance
Safe, but ineffectiv: If you truly have adrenal insufficiency, dhea alone is not adequate replacement, and you will need additional hormones including glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids. "adrenal imbalance", "adrenal fatigue" etc are really pseudo-diseases, not well characterized, and it probably wont hurt to take dhea. ...Read more
A dietary supplement, also known as food supplement or nutritional supplement, is a preparation intended to supplement the diet and provide nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, or amino acids, that may be missing or may not be consumed in sufficient quantities in a person's diet. Some countries define dietary supplements as foods, while ...Read more
Hormone replacement: Its never a good idea to take a hormone as a supplement unless there is a deficiency. Even in some hormone deficiencies, the drawbacks to replacement outweigh the benefits. While there is some limited evidence that dhea replacement can help specific groups (people with addison's disease for example), I am unaware of evidence for pregnenolone replacement. Endocrinologists have this knowledge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What should be used to treat excess estrogen in a female? Please suggest something safe. Would progesterone cream help?If yes then which brand?
Don't spend much $: Arginine is a naturally-occurring Amino Acid in all completely proteins; there's a popular claim that it releases growth hormone from the pituitary gland but whether this is really helpful isn't clear. A protein meal after a workout is a good idea for a bodybuilder, and creatine helps bulk, but most other supplements and advice are worth little. Train hard, stay trim, enjoy what you do! ...Read more

Low estrogen=myth: Your estrogen levels naturally vary by the day of your cycle and your age. I agree with dr mikhail, the popular press has made a myth out there that there is a balance level for hormones. If you are not on a prescription hormone pill, and not menopausal, your estrogen levels are highest in the first half of your menstrual cycle, getting lower in the later half. That is natural. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When taking hydrocortisone supplementation for partial adrenal insufficiency, what is the best way to monitor for any adverse impact on bone health or other health issue due to excess hydrocortisone?
No magic pill: Find some sports that you really enjoy, if you have a romantic partner work hard on the relationship and all of its aspects, and eat sensibly, getting used to limiting what you eat to what you really need and getting plenty of protein and less grease and sugar. This will probably raise your testosterone and very likely get you the things you want from having the higher testosterone. Cheers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have any doctors heard of using clomiphene citrate or anastrozole to boost a mans natural production of testosterone ? If so is it safe and effective?
Let's back up: These are sometimes used to scam bodybuilders but i'm going to assume that your concern is rather with diminished libido despite your young age. If you have had a few serum testosterone levels actually low, this may be the problem; otherwise these won't help you. More important is that some smart physician screen you for prolactinoma, hemochromatosis & other important causes of lost libido. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
