I found this interesting article today that suggests that the balance of DHT and 4-androstenedione should be 1:1
If DHT is higher and androstenedione lower, it creates a pro-carcinogenic state. However, if DHT and androstenedione levels are both high and at a 1:1 ratio, the pro-carcinogenic properties of high DHT are neutralized by the anti-carcinogenic properties of androstenedione. So if you’ve had blood work indicating high DHT levels, be sure to have the androstenedione levels measure as well…
So if you have high DHT and low-ish androsteindoine, then theoretically you may want to raise androsteindoine rather than reduce DHT.
In the link that i posted, the guy says:
“One way to raise androstenedione is to supplement DHEA, which can convert into androstenedione, but I prefer (and use myself) magnesium oil, which can naturally increase DHEA levels”.
