How to raise dht if 5-alpha-reductase is not working?
The only two ways I know:
This is dht gel that must be applied to the skin
According to Three Weeks of Creatine Monohydrate Supplementation Affects Dihydrotestosterone to Testosterone Ratio in College-Aged Rugby Players it stimulates conversion of testosterone to dht so it seems to work like an “artifical 5-alpha-reductase enzym”.
Any other suggestions??
My testosterone and dht are roughly just above the bottom of the normal range; LH and FSH are average. I was treated with clomid (150mg pw + 1mg anastrazole pw to mitigate the accompanying increase in estradiol). Testosterone, LH and FSH all increased about 50% or more but dht did not increase! So Im curious about other options to increase dht.
Side thought: Is this a good way to objectively determine if someone has PFS?
- Raise testosterone using clomid.
- Check if dht has increased.
It is hard to objectively say if someone has PFS by just looking at blood values because blood values could have been low prefinasteride. But this test seems a good way to objectively determine any damage to 5-alpha-reductase.
