I had my blood tested 1 month after crashing. DHT, testosterone and everything was normal and within range. I couldn`t test the 3 alpha androstenediol gluconide, which is the best indication to show you have pfs.
The only abnormality was low vitamin D, which goes with pfs, but other ailments as well. Nonethe less, I could tick half of the symptoms for pfs and they all appeared a month after I stopped finasteride. So obviously I had the crash.
So yes, it`s weird. people recover in all kind of different ways, or sometime for no apparent reasons.
To me, dieting is a question of survival. The anxiety was so intense I was going to kill myself. I found that it manifest itself only if I eat carbs. So i stopped, and all the other neurological problems, like brain fog and speech slur stopped as well. Also the headache, acid reflux and stomach ache.
I think it
s a good idea to try and get the body in a better general shape by eating better and exercising, I think trying various supplements is also a good idea, to jolt the body this way and that way and get things to reboot naturally, but I dont think taking more drugs and external hormones is a good idea. Our body was working naturally before, the solution has to come from a natural source. not from more aggressive drugs.
