Inflammation and depression

I wonder if the inflammatory cytokines which have been shown to affect the DHT promoter which Melcangi refers to.

This guy got pretty far (more than most) when it came to trying to figure some things out for himself.
Ive referenced him a few times on here because he had alot of extensive testing.

“My PET scan was done at Fraudert hospital and was interpreted by Froedert radiologists as normal. Since I had no faith left in them, I asked the doctor at Mayo clinic to have my PET scan re-interpreted. The interpretation just came back and it is completely different. The Mayo radiologists used special software (called neuroQ) and here is the result.”

Glucose metabolism compared to the mean:

Right associative visual cortex: -5.2 standard deviations below the mean

Right primary visual cortex: -2.9 standard deviations below the mean

Left associative visual cortex: -5.0 standard deviations below the mean

Left primary visual cortex: -2.2 standard deviations below the mean

Right superior lateral temporal cortex: -2.9 standard deviations below the mean

Cerebellar vermis: -2.4 standard deviations below the mean

Left cerebellum: -2.1 standard deviations below the mean

The pattern of abnormalities does not fit any classic neurodegenerative disorders.

The possiblity of a subacute neuroinflammatory or encephalitic process cannot be excluded.

So they were able to pick up that you have neuroinflammation?

I also thought he was one of the genuine posters on acne.org.

Would be very helpful to know how he is doing these days.

I’d sent him a message as well, but he seems to have not read it yet.

Im sure he’s long gone or moved on. His last posts are from quite a few years ago. He did throw up that cancer stat with that antibody, but I highly doubt that. I have that same antibody and i’ve had quite a few scans and tests, so i’m not too concerned.
