Very similar questions to the ones I posted in the very last post in my thread:
If you are referring to the study of overweight males with hypogonadism that were treated by jus' reducing estradiol numbers, I believe I read the same one. However, it was not Clomid but Arimidex. Maybe you mixed up the names? Anyway, that was the reason why I decided to try AI-monotherapy for my case as I believe the reason for my low testosterone levels are because I am overweight.
At one point, my testosterone level was 197. I performed another test about 2 weeks ago and I was around 300ish with an Estradiol value at 62 (Range 20-47). I took .5mg's EOD of Anastrazole and my Estradiol value came back down to 24 and my testosterone rose to 638. I don't feel any better though. Same symptoms as before and libido still non-existent.
VTBalla, how did you feel when you tried AI-monotherapy? Did your symptoms alleviate at all? You mention that AI-monotherapy's benefits are short-lived. I have read that there is a slight resistance to AI's; was this true in your case? "but in general your body is dumping T to E for a reason, and adex is really just a bandaid and not a solution of the cause." What if the reason for the conversion was simply being overweight. Shouldn't AI-monotherapy and a weight-loss plan be the preferred treatment for hypogonadism?
