Is aromatase inhibitor treatment likely to normalize the levels of elevated estradiol, 5-HIAA, histamine and lipid status? Thank you.

Is aromatase inhibitor treatment likely to normalize the levels of elevated estradiol, 5-HIAA, histamine and lipid status? Thank you.

What aroma is that??: Yes,and it cures baldness and will get rid of an annoying girlfriend.Well,actually,it just inhibits the conversion of testost to estrogens in your body cells (it works overtime in fat cells).Its relationship to 5-HIAA is sketchy at best(far as I know)and on blood lipids very complex and probably opposite what you think.No easy answers here,except: you gotta histamine problem?Take an antihistamine! ...Read more

Is it healthy to take an chrysin surge aromatase inhibitor as a teen?

No it is not.: Even though it is an over the counter supplement, it is not recommended by any reputable manufacturer to be taken before you are 18. If you are asking about it as a way to increase your testosterone levels, remember if it was successful it would prematurely lead to your bones fusing and stunt your growth/height! ...Read more

Is it safe to take HCG( for wt loss) when on an aromatase inhibitor ,ihave taken it previous but was not on the arimadex at the time thanks?

Is it safe to take HCG( for wt loss) when on an aromatase inhibitor  ,ihave taken it previous but was not on the arimadex at the time thanks?

Not defined: I assume the aromatase inhibitors are being used to manage potential or existing metastatic breast cancer. HCG is a hormone developing during pregnancy which does have some beneficial effect on cancer, at least with regard to the n-terminal repeat of the molecule. How it effects breast cancer has not been reported and when used for diet many patients overuse the product and become anorexic . ...Read more

Assuming my growt plates have not closed, would an aromatase inhibitor (letrozole) combined with 200mg/ml/month of testosterone make me grow taller?

Possibly: Although height in males is influenced by both testosterone and growth hormone, growth hormone would provide greater height gain. However, the growth plates are likely closed, or nearly closed in a 19 year old. ...Read more

What are options following optimal debulking for gr. 1 stage 3c endometrioid ovarian ca?  Carbo/taxol?  Aromatase inhibitor? Other? Clinical trials?
