Hello. I have lurked for two years. I am dialed in now. Thanks for all your help.
A friend is 74, has a very positive outlook, joyously works 6.5 days a week (personal counselor), good energy, eats very clean, and does aerobics regularly, no weights. Says erectile function is 80% of when he was a youth.
He is not obese, but his body fat % is a bit high and he wants to lose 10-15 lbs. He plans on doing this by doing the HCG Diet Plan (500 calories a day and homeopathic, not actual, HCG drops), as he has in the past.
His last hormone tests were many months ago. He does not have the reports. He says Total T was over 700, free T was strong, E was “very high”. His advisors are concerned about the estrogen level.
He has a naturopath, a nutritionist and another health advisor. They don’t want him to start the HCG (homeopathic drops) Diet Plan without first bringing down his E number, as they believe the homeopathic HCG drops will increase his estrogen and that would be dangerous.
The naturopath did not order blood work, put him on:
25 units of Ipamorelin, injected nightly;
25 mg Test C, IM once a week;
1 mg Anastrozol once a week.
The prescriber intends for him to be on this program for 12 weeks, then stop, as his prescriber believes the estrogen should have been brought down by then, and he can start the (homeopathic, not actual HCG injections) HCG Diet Plan without worry that it will boost his E.
I have given him my opinion. He has three people telling him something else. He is a very, very good person. Could you share your opinion, and I will share it with him? Thanks.
