Adiol-G and other glucuronide formation from DHT.



#5

Another diagram showing the pathways involved in DHT --> 3a-diol G conversion.

Diagram from: pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articl … id=2047816

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.

#7

Never heard of any 5-alpha-metabolites tests in a commercial lab, besides DHT.
