I tried searching for this topic and I only found one relevant thread. Quoting from Fat loss = less estrogen?:
I’ve always assumed, due to the reasons stated in the above post, that getting leaner would help alleviate my PFS symptoms. Of course there are many of us who already were lean when they got PFS and I’m not suggesting obesity as a root cause or proposing weight loss as a cure.
I simply realized that I’ve never challenged or confirmed the assumption I have that getting leaner would alleviate my symptoms. I’m definitely lucky in that PFS seems to have done nothing to alter my body composition. I’m no less strong/muscular than I ever were before taking Finasteride and I haven’t seen any obvious signs that my fat distribution has changed. But I could stand to lose around 50lbs or so.
So the question is pretty simple, has anybody intentionally lost a significant amount of body fat and if so, has it had any effect on your PFS symptoms?
Unfortunately the thread I quoted didn’t get much attention but it’s been a few years so maybe someone has something to report. If I ever do get in better shape I’m looking forward to seeing if things get any better for me or if they stay the same. Knowing our luck it actually wouldn’t surprise me if they got worse, but in any case I’d like to hear if someone has experienced it.
