    My hair grew back on TRT

    After a month on TRT I noticed that new hair have started to grow on my scalp. I’m now 2 months in and it still regrowing new hair. My dosage is 250mg testosterone cypionate every week. What could the reason behind this be? Before TRT my LH and FSH was elevated. Could the reduction of LH have...

    Low testosterone detrimental, TRT beneficial for men with COVID-19

    Within a month of the pandemic start back in early 2020, doctors were already noticing a gender-specific trend in COVID-19 cases. Namely, pre-menopausal women fared much better in terms of COVID-19 disease course compared to post-menopausal women and (adult) men. The ever-corrupt Big Pharma was...

    It seems like the perfect food before bed. Pros: • Wheat bran has Magnesium. • It's an Insoluble fiber which can lower estrogen. • The Raisins are good for Boron • Calcium in the Milk Here is what I'm worried about: Cons: • 80 grams of Raisin Bran has 9.5 grams of fiber. Can this raise...

    Call for information: Trying to determine extent of estrogenic substances still in food supply.

    I would like for anyone to help contribute some knowledge, speculation and studies, and open a discussion on the extent to which, despite supposedly getting rid of BPA containing plastics, there are still estrogenic substances in all the plastics we store much of our food in, and used during the...

    SUN-/UVB- Light increases Progesterone receptor expression in mice by 4,5 fold, increases T 1,4 fold

    I recenty listened to an Andrew Huberman podcast, where he mentioned sunlight exposure (especially in the morning) as beeing very good for your hormonal state. I found this study in his podcast notes. They irradiated mice with UVB light, that was equivalent to about 20-25 minutes of midday sun...

    What’s wrong with testosterone reference ranges?

    https://www.mdapp.co/free-and-bioavailable-testosterone-calculator-544/ Looking at the chart for 20-30 years old. The reference range for bioavaible T is 83-257ng/dL, for free T it’s 5.25-20.7ng/dL. Translated that means a man in his twenties with a total testosterone of only 187 ng/dL (6.5...

    Anti-Peat Why do children have so good health if their androgens low?

    After thinking about peating, I wondered: why are children so metabolically ideal that they even overtake elite athletes by this factor, if their androgenic level is very low? Is it strange that everyone on the forum is talking about the rejuvenating effect of androgens, if children are the...

    Vitamin A and T3 for testosterone - dosage

    I know RP has said that the best way to raise testosterone is to take vitamin a and T3 but I've never found any info about dosage. Do you have any information about that or your own experience?

    Has anyone reliably increased DHT or T with t3 therapy?

    Has anyone confirmed an androgenic benefit or increase in androgens from using T3 or thyroid therapy in general? T3 is reliably an androgen agonist how has the therapy played out in androgenic function or a “secondary puberty” effect in males here?

    Confusion about T use

    In this recent talk Georgi is endorsing very high dose Testosterone use (100 mg a day), saying (according to the study) even 50 mg per day wasn't good enough. I'm very confused now, since I saw him recommend a physiological dose of about 5 mg per day. I use a few milligrams of T transscrotally...

    Could aromatase inhibitors be useful in autoimmune diseases?

    Dr Ray Peat mentions in some articles that the cause of autoimmune diseases is high estrogen. Considering this, has anyone seen benefits from using a pharmaceutical aromatase inhibitor? I have a positive ANA marker for Lupus/Sjogren's, and even though it's low, I have several of the symptoms of...

    From how much testosterone the receptors are saturated ?

    I will be taking testosterone again for an indefinite period, probably 100mg ace or prop test per day and intramuscular injection (C8 + BA + BB solution). I should be getting between 2000/3000ng/dl per day if it was like last time. However, testosterone is expensive and I wonder if being at such...

    Hypogonadism in older males due to low OXPHOS

    I suspect many readers will simply say "duh!", but believe or not the origin of age-related hypogonadism in males is still considered unknown. Most endocrinologists have discovered experimentally that treating their patients with SERM or AI drugs restores androgens to youthful levels, but the...

    Muscle & Growth Overall = (mostly) Unsaturated; Estrogenic? Is this why some people have bigger muscles or bigger bones; others smaller/less mass?

    Obviously it's more complicated than that to a degree, but I got to reading this old thread by @haidut on saturatedness or unsaturedness: https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/unsaturation-estrogenic-saturation-androgenic.13162/#post-180467 Here is the study he referenced: Oestrogenic...
