I met a new doctor today, a colleague of Dr. Shippen, we have been going back and forth for a couple weeks. I had told him about my reversing of this with hormones, and that I could not remain on this forever, I needed to fix the root. I expected him to come up with stupid ideas and (like every doctor before him) be useless. However, as we were talking on the phone, he started going into detail about his theories on insulin, and how insulin might help us, it could be involved with this as it somehow up regulates 5AR or DHT (I forget). He was talking a bout a lot of different compounds and methods of improving 5AR expression and conversion of test to DHT. He has had a lot of experience treating Adrenal fatigue and really knows his stuff, he is interested in becoming a PFS doctor.
MEW, please contact this guy and add him as one of the PFS doctors, his approach is very different from other doctors, he is interested in the auto immune angle possibility as well as a lot of areas. I was actually calling to cancel my appointment as I felt it was a waste of money and time, but after speaking with him, I was very much amazed at his knowledge base. He is willing to treat guys from anywhere in the world, he is located in Palm Beach Florida.
Regardless of what some of you may think about me or my approaches, for the greater good, we need all the doctors we can get. This doctor is a hormone doctor, but what is interesting is he doesn’t seem to have much interest in traditional hormones like testosterone et al, but actually dealing in cortisol, insulin and adrenal stuff. He personally called me, spent time with me on the phone, twice now.
