Great post. Its sad everyone thinks testosterone is a joke (people that are accusers of steroid use) however they don’t realize how important hormones are. im a 23 year old male, have always been ripped, but the last year or so have shown really bad symptoms of what I thought was low T. Turns out my estradiol is 56, normal is 17 to around 35. My life went from perfect to pure HELL and my doctor is more concerned on “why my hormones are out of sync” while I continue to suffer horrible side effects. My libido is gone, amonst other things but my latest concern is EXTREME muscls wasting due to prolonged high aromitization. I don’t just mean loss in size, my forearms literally feel like they have rotted away inside my skin. Its very scary. I’m trying to figure out how I can get my doctors head out of his ass to give me an AI to combat all this estrogen but am having a difficult time. Men need to immediately seek medical help upon any first signs of this, I waited and am now paying very dearly for it. Please brethren DO NOT TAKE EXCESS ESTROGEN as a light issue, you WILL SUFFER!!!!
Estrogen helps reduce the rate of bone loss that occurs during normal bone remodeling. Normally there is a balance in the activity of the cells that break down bone and the cells that build it back up. By decreasing the activity of the cells that break down bone, estrogen allows the cells that build bone to have a greater overall effect. Once estrogen levels drop, this balance shifts.
While hormone therapy has been shown to decrease hip and vertebral fractures, it may also increase your risk of other health conditions, such as invasive breast cancer, stroke and blood clots. Discuss the risks and benefits of available treatments with your health care professional.
