One of those studies also said that high SHBG was an independent risk factor for osteoporosis.  Maybe not so independent ???

Yes interesting.  Older men with low bone density without diurnal variation also had about twice as much SHBG.  Maybe the higher SHBG was sucking up enough E2 that the variation got lost in the low levels (methodology sensitivity  etc.).

My BMD is down although my E2 levels are most always good at about 18 to 28.  Although I have never done a diurnal study on E2.  My SHBG levels are consistently high, maybe that is the issue.

And the amounts are not trivial, they are significant.  You will see with a web search.

You should know that pomegranate seeds have higher E1 and E2 levels than any other plant.  Most of tbe commercial juice includes the seeds.

Cat,
If you wanted the MOST accurate Total T and T Free test result, would you choose LC/MS/MS or Equalibrium Dialysis ?
Thanks

The article references Inhibin A in which I am intensely interested.  If anyone has any info on male (only male) disease states involving Inhibin A, I would appreciate the sharing of the info.
Thanks

There are popular books* written that claim that if you always consume more potassium than sodium, your blood pressure will be normal.

It says you should always buy canned goods with at least as much potassium as sodium, preferably 2 to 1 ratio.

I quit salt (sodium chloride) about 15 years ago.  As a substitute,   I use "Nu-Salt" which is Potassium Chloride.  Comes in a little shaker, available at grocery stores and Amazon.

Do you drink a lot of water every day?  If so, it is possible you are washing those electrolytes out of your system.  Remember water plus milk plus cokes plus beer, etc. is total liquid for the day.

As an aside, a urologist told me one time that for my weight at that time, about 174, I should not drink more than about eighty ounces a day.  Because more than that and the kidneys start having to work instead if just going along doing their thing.

FWIW, it is said that is why Trump made such a big deal about America becoming independent of orher countries for drugs (not meant to be a political statement).

Back in about May or June of last year, it was reported that something like 80 % of USA's drugs come from India and tbat 90% of their raw materials to make drugs come from China.

Cat,
It js also possible that T had already peaked in tbe early afternoon and was on its way down when the late afternoon test was made.  That would explain why E2 was lower in the late afternoon, it had already "overshot" going up and was on its way down, plausable?

Cat,

Your Selegiline link,

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selegiline

does provide s LOT of interesting info. A few severe interactions The thing that bothered me most was:

"At typical clinical doses used for Parkinson's disese, selegiline is a selective and *irreversible* inhibitor of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B), increasing levels of dopamine in the brain."

How long do the negative-going and positive-going E2 over-shoots last before reversing and start to track TT ?

Is this time magnitude related with respect to TT and E2 ?
