last labs. Ferritin and sodium are in the range now, but all the other values are still low or high.
Does anybody else here have high cholesterol due to finasteride?


#267

I post it here cause i guess that someone else already talked about this, so…
for those who say that we should avoid 5ari’s foods.
indeed i feel bad on certain foods, but in this list there is also space for patatoes and grains and cheese, which are not 5ari.
i made an extensive search and looks like everything is potentially a 5ari food. some foods are more 5 ari than others like pumpkin seeds or reishi mushrooms, ok, but the list i made contains all the fatty acids and all the phitosterols (which are in every plant).

  • aloe vera
  • cashews
  • all the fatty acids
  • avocado
  • watermelon
  • all the oils
  • banana peel (and someone says banana itself)
  • curcumin
  • carrots
  • everything that contains carotenoids: salmon, mangoes, apricocs, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, turnip, pumpkin, winter squash, dark leafy greens, egg yolk, broccoli, peach, tangerine, lettuce)
  • cocoa butter
  • white mushrooms
  • shea butter
  • almonds
  • nuts in general
  • black pepper
  • soy
  • seeds

foods rinch in lycopene such as:

  • tomatoes
  • papaya
  • red kale
  • peppers
  • asparagus
  • grape
  • grapefruit

and also:

  • cinnamon, oysters, tuna, berries.

i forgot something for sure.
this story is making me me very paranoic over foods and that’s no good. neither for me nor for us.
If you avoid 5ari foods, i suppose you eat pro-dht foods, which are all the processed foods, pastries, margarine based foods, butter, red meat. is this your diet? like… really?
so, tell me what the hell do you eat or what are you going to eat now.

Update n.109
2019-01-15T08:52:00Z
On sunday i had a 24h fast, not intentionally. I did not feel good and i stayed in bed all day.
After the fast my penis was bigger, like it never was in my memory. Now is as big as it used to be before it got little but not as big as it was after the fast. now i wonder if propecia made my penis little over time, slowly. I forgot to mention it before, but the size decreased lately.
I’m gonna talk about this with my doctor and i’ll ask him if i can do it once a week.

also, i have low serum zinc.

from drugbank: The metabolism of Finasteride can be increased when combined with Calcitriol.
Calcitriol is the active form of the vit d3 and directly goes to the vit d3 receptor. and is an inducer of the cyp3a4, @Damon


#270

Ciao Sonic, si confermo!


#271

about vit d, this migh be useful (but nothing new, cd nuts said it all).


#272

It might be better to make new topics rather than put everything you find out here.


#273

I’m taking cold showers. I find it very beneficial on my mood and energy.


#274

this thread is a sort of diary, i put in it all my efforts. maybe i should change it’s name in “pfs sonic racing”


#275

added intermittent fasting to my regimen. once per week.
noticed that while fasting i feel calmer. and hungry, of course.


#276

And this might be one of the reasons why fasting is beneficial.
from wikipedia “…Indeed, in fatheaded minnows, unfed female fish were shown to have increased PXR and CYP3A4 expression, and displayed a more pronounced response to xenobiotic factors after exposure after several days of starvation.[31]

finasteride might inhibit it’s own metabolism in the liver.
some food completely inhibit the same enzyme, like grapefruit.

and milk thistle is a cyp3a4 inhibitor. this might be the reason why @awor crashed.
