I’ve recently been going to a series of doctors regarding the typical PFS symptoms we experience, and have not mentioned finasteride (and kept from looking depressed). They’ve continued running the typical tests, with nothing really out of range (including heavy metals, etc) except for liver function. I’ve had pfs for at least a decade, but only have the last few years of medical tests available.
They all show mildly out of range liver function across a few categories, but nothing too alarming, as I’m otherwise “healthy”. Would any of us have pre and post pfs liver function tests, to try to understand if the liver issues are a primary or secondary effect of finasteride?
I’m asking because if you google “liver testosterone”, you’ll see the impact of liver issues on testosterone, including muscle wasting, swollen belly, etc…
You’ll also see the diet suggested to help “fatty liver” test numbers includes much of the same that many of us have reported improving results with.
Personally, I’m surprised a search on the site didn’t show much on “liver”, but some liver disease symptoms overlap quite a bit with what I’m experiencing. And yes, know I could possibly have both, but hope not, and our collective research could show a cause/effect and possibly a path out of this hell.
