How would one fix this dysfuntion?
Thank you SO much for explaining this to me.
i think you might need to do some more pinpointing to figure out the exact problem. if your CYP pathway is dysfunctional, you'll have additional problems: http://arjournals.annualreviews.org/....120501.150216
so... i'd start digging to see if there are tests to determine genetic mutations in the steroid hormone pathway that you can take to find out exactly which one (if any) you have. or see if there are tests for other metabolites downstream from androstenedione to see if there are other pathways... i'm not sure if these hydroxylases are enzymes that one can take orally.
what i did learn in this digging is that some of the chemo drugs for breast cancer therapy try to suppress the conversion of androstenedione to estrone.
should we spin off your steroid hormone pathway discussion into its own thread? or do you think this still belongs in this gigantic thread?
