I've been taking Avodart for almost 10 years now but i've never done any blood tests to check my testosterone/dht levels.

I'm thinking about:

- Free and total testosterone
-Estradiol
- DHT
- TSH,T3 and T4

Please tell me something, i'll do them in a few hours and I'd like to know if I should add more.
Thanks.

Maybe visit lef for some ideas.

Eventually just like cholesterol being a component that is actually protective to the body it will come out that DHT too is protective to the prostate and the male body. All these guys lowering DHT for decades I think have made a grave error which is understandable. Who can possibly weed through all the lies thrown out there with studies when so many are making so much money.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

So what will happen to the prostate?

Devilhunter it's up to you to determine what you need by doing your own research. For example I was specifically interested in testosterone levels along with inflammatory markers such as homocysteine levels and C-reactive protein. I do eat a tremendous amount of cholesterol so just a little curiosity on my part. I have not been to medical doctor for anything health related in over 30 years.

The last test I had came back and the testosterone was absolutely through the roof coming in at 1221 ng/dl. At the same time my homocysteine levels were exceptionally low with CRP being equally very low. My cholesterol ratio also tested low with very high HDL which is associated with longevity.

So how is this all possible with someone consuming so much cholesterol? Because the cholesterol issue is about marketing medications and that is why the revenues recently topped 1 trillion dollars. More are starting to wake up but plenty are still taking their medications on the advice of their marketers/doctors.

Same applies to the hair industry. Much of what you see out there is complete horseshit generated by marketers to generate revenue and unfortunately there is a cost to pay in personal health unless one understands the game.

Why are you suddenly interested in your testosterone levels? If you're really skinny and can't put on any muscle, you've got a problem but this is an odd interest 10 years later....
