Some diagrams showing how all our hormones are connected.
Good diagram of Testicular and Adrenal sex hormone metabolism.
Adiol-G and other glucuronide formation from DHT.
Another diagram showing the pathways involved in DHT --> 3a-diol G conversion.

Show this to an endo next time they think all Fin does is inhibit DHT. Areas of investigation worth concentrating on:
- 5AR pathways
- 3a-HSD pathways
- 17b-HSD pathways.
More discussion on the above pathways here:
Never heard of any 5-alpha-metabolites tests in a commercial lab, besides DHT.
