Hcg to help sleep and anxiousness??
« on: July 13, 2019, 02:06:29 pm »
So I just finished tapering off clonazepam. Was on it for 6-7 years and tapered extremely slow. About 2 months ago I ran out of hcg. Ever since my sleep has been horrific. I watched a Nelson vergel video about how hcg mimics lh but helps create hormones down the line like progesterone etc.
Does anyone think this could be the reason for my sleep being so bad?  Sleep has never been great throughout my taper but it’s almost non existent now. I have some hcg coming in about 3-4 days.  Thanks.

One study found that in younger men hCG stimulates progesterone production. The result was not seen in older men.

What age threshold is considered “younger” and “older”?
52 year old, 5’-7” and 165 lbs.
exercise:swim 3x/wk & marrial arts 2x/wk

Blood tested 9/19/18

Total = 580 ng/dL (250-827) 59.9%
Free T= 6.87 (4.6- 22.4) 12.8% (10.8 calc)

SHBG= 39 10.0-50.0) 72.5%

Bio-avail= 14.2 (110-575) 8.0%

DHES =not tested %

Estradiol = 22 (<39)

DHES =231 (38-313) =45.5% tested 2/14/18

Currently on 50mcg Synthroid (T4)
TSH = 0.99
Free T4 = 1.30 (0.80 - 1.80)  =50.0% of range
Free T3 = 3.3 (2.3-4.2) = 52.6% of range
Current protocol: 100mg DIM once per day. Reduction back from 200 mg. For 12 weeks. raised total T, freeT remained basically unchanged due to increases SHBG. Estradiol decrease from 30 to 22. Felt no better and maybe worse than at 100mg DIM so going back starting 9/25/18

The link is here. "Younger" means a mean age of 34 year, "older" means a mean age of 74 years.
