Danazol for Gynecomastia?
« on: January 27, 2015, 03:50:55 pm »
i have a high BF%, minor gyno from years and years of finasteride (even though i was lean during that time)...i was hoping danazol with TRT might help with this as well as help me lose some fat. I can get it from my HRT doc at 75mg a day... anyone have any input on it?

Hey, welcome to the board.  Well, I guess it is your second post...

Danazol doesn't sound too impressive:

Also, if you are overweight, there is a good chance that you are low SHBG:

And Danazol will lower SHBG, so that's not a good idea.

I don't know whether you know this or not, but, if you're more than 50 pounds overweight, it is quite common for those extra pounds to actually induce secondary hypogonadism and, of course, extra estradiol can create the gyno:

Not trying to get on your case about that but just letting you know.

I don't think that many guys/docs are using Danazol for gyno?  The steroid guys use letrozole from what I've read and, I believe, docs tend to use tamoxifen, but you'd have to check around on that.  If you're in the early stages and it's not too bad, I know that my old HRT clinic used Arimidex.

Also, can you post the HRT/TRT question in a separate thread?

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.
