I'm still feeling like crap even adding 25mg DHEA (am)/progesterone (am/pm). I'm guessing this is due to a number of factors, TT/FT are probably still low, E2 is increasing and there isn't enough SHBG to bind to the increased E2 exacerbating the issue. But that's just my theory. My PCP doesn't want to see me for another 6 weeks so getting additional labs drawn in the meantime is going to be a pain. I am still looking for a second opinion locally but there aren't any Endo's close and the only urologist that "specializes" in HRT uses saliva testing and don't accept insurance - both of which concern me but I might see about getting their opinion on the results I have.
Saturated fat is one of the best sources of energy for your body. It’s why your body naturally stores carbohydrates as saturated fat. How can you argue with one of the most basic structures of how your body was intended to work? Saturated fats are also some of the most satiating foods, meaning they keep you fuller longer. Research even shows diets that are higher in saturated fats are oftentimes lower in total calories. And, as we alluded to already, saturated fats boost testosterone, which as we’ve already mentioned about a hundred times, is what makes you a man.
