I have had hashimotos with my antibodies being around 2500... just after a few months of using LDN my antibodies were 500 and my testosterone went from 400 to 1000.....

I did read small amount of other users saying how LDN boosts the pituitary LH similiar to HCG ... but theres only a small amount of research out there on it for testosterone
]

if it boosts LH it will boost testosterone. Like tribullus

Not necessarily in older guys.  Or at least trib tends not to bevas effective as you age.

Hi,
I know this is an older post, but I am actually considering the use of LDN not for testostrone but as part of a protocol for healing SIBO(Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth)
So 2 questions I have for those who have tried LDN:
1. Did you measure your Prolactin to see if it became elevated?
2. Did you notice better bowel function with it's use?

Thanks

LDN did not effect bowels or prolactin

sounds promising,
are you still using it?
did you notice any side effects?
how about any other benefits(besides increase in testostrone).. I am also in contact with another member in a different forum who says she is been on it for 6 months and feels more energy. So I am curious if it had any other effects for you,
Thanks so much.

I just wanted to report back... I have been on LDN for 3 weeks now and if anything it has reduced my sex drive!
I believe the reason is , it has reduced the length and depth of my sleep.... I use to sleep a good 6-7 hours a night and wake up with morning wood.. now I sleep about 4 hours a night and my sleep feels light(I wake up easy) no morning wood... I have also checked with another person who is using LDN for about 6 months and she has also confirmed that she has become a light sleeper... We all know how much REM sleep helps production of testosterone, so I just wanted to caution everyone....

However, it is working for my intended use. I am using LDN as a part of a protocol to heal my SIBO(Small intestine bacteria overgrowth).. and it does help the digestion track to do what I need it to do while I am getting the healing... So unless if I find a natural replacement for it, I am gonna use it at least for 3-6 months(hopefully until my gut heals)

Btw, I am only using 2.5mg which is the lowest dose..

Thanks Peyt.  I will put that caution in an LDN page that I have.

Sure, although I think they're pretty low as is.  What's the lowest dosage you've heard of someone taking with LDN?
