I’ve come to find many doctors are very out of touch with the current research of hormones and treat the subject like the Black Plague. I had a 30 min long conversation but the sound didn’t record. All of his approaches are tied into the latest studies and I’ll try my best to recap some key points:
- women can experience pre menopausal symptoms from mid 30s- mid 50s
- what blood test and numbers to look out for in checking thyroid function and checking free t3, free test, and what levels are low but more importantly to treat the symptoms and not just the numbers
- common thoughts about men taking testosterone and increase prostate size, which he believed isn’t as much of a concern as other doctors make it seem
- increasing red blood cell count in men and the “increased risk of stroke” which again he dispelled -the dangers of men having too much testosterone…very little according to his research
- the benefits of having higher estrogen in men and the cardio protecting effects when taking testosterone
- the estrogen levels really aren’t a concern unless symptoms come up
- the dangers of men taking too much anti-Estrogens and the effects on the heart
- the cognitive effects in mood , thought , performance from balanced hormones
- how all supplements like dhea and thyroid aren’t created equal and some can be less quality and have fillers
It was a great talk and I’ve spoken with numerous doctors in this field. To find a forward-thinking doctor who stays current with research and takes the time to talk to his patients is almost obsolete. "
