Using Calcium D-Glucarate As An AI?
« on: October 15, 2017, 04:22:40 pm »
I experienced nipple puffiness and an increase in breast tissue a about a month ago (and it's still lingering).  I didn't have an Arimidex (not that that would've done much anyway) or anything like that on hand so I just grabbed what I could, which happend to be a bottle of Calcium D-Glucarate.  Over the course of a few days, I probably took about (6) 500mg tablets.  Coincidentally, my Defy labs were due so I went into Labcorp and had my labs pulled. The labs came back with my estrodial ridiculously low on my Estroidal Sensitive test: I had a 5.0 where the range was 8.0 - 35.0. 

The only thing that could've crashed my estrodial is the CDG.  Given that, could one use CDG instead of Arimidex as an effective AI?

1st Labs:
Total Testosterone: 497 (range is 348 - 1197)
Free Testosterone: 6.1 (range is 8.7 - 25.1)
DHEA: 204.2 (range is 102.6 - 416.3)
Luteinizing Hormone: 9.8 (range is 1.7 - 8.6)
Estradiol: 16.2 (range is 8.0 - 35.0)

Started 25mg daily Clomid (through Defy Medical) on 11/03/16

2nd Labs:
Total Testosterone: 962 (range is 348 - 1197)
Free Testosterone: 12.0 (range is 8.7 - 25.1)
DHEA: 377.5 (range is 102.6 - 416.3)
Luteinizing Hormone: 11.4 (range is 1.7 - 8.6)
Estradiol: 26.1 (range is 8.0 - 35.0)

As far as I know, Calcium D-Glucarate won't quantum lower your estradiol levels, at least in the great majority of guys.  What this says to me is that you were probably on the low side to start with?
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

I discontinued it inmediately after I proved with my results that it lowered my test and IGF1 drastically. I imagine it can make the same to Estradiol.

The problem with supplements is they are almost all fake. Thats why you see mixed results with calcium d glucarate. What brands did you guys use?

Really, fake?  Personally I've seen vast improvements in vitamin d and b12 from supplements, especially the liquid sublingual b12.  Id be interested to know your thoughts on fake supplements though as I take a few and don't want to be taking something that's not useful.
