A recovery from Hypogonadism in Ray peat's forum


#1

I saw a post some while ago about a guy adressing his Hypogonadism on the Ray peat forums. This guy was diagnosed with hypogonadism at 17 years old with testosterone levels near the 200s range. He tried a lot of therapies - from triptorelin to ozone therapy.

It was not untill he started taking a high carb peatearian diet that he solved his issue.

The Peatarian diet mainly centers on optimizing the thyroid function. Good old Ray, for what I remember, prefers sugars over starches.
