I was on Testosterone hormone therapy until They discovered my prostate cancer. In fact it was probably the testosterone gel that sped up what was probably an undetected prostate cancer. I have not as yet had the operation, since I was trying to coordinate with my doctors, to get me in the best of health first, before the operation, because I had been suffering with weakness and wanted to see if I could find the reason for it before surgery. My problem started with undiagnosed diabetes, undiagnosed hypothyroidism, as well as the low testosterone. My own research led to the discovery of these problems---NOT THE DOCTORS---IT WAS MY OWN INSISTANCE TO ORDER CERTAIN BLOOD TESTS THAT DISCOVERED THE PROBLEMS I believe that if my hormones were in balance---I would not have developed these problems. I studied Dim after swimmom sugested I look into it. I did, and I then found out about a doctor named John R Lee MD He was the discoverer of the uses of progesterone in men. And so I found out about the dangers of too much estradiol in a man's system---AND ALSO HOW PROGESTERONE MODERATED THE EFFECTS OF ESTRADIOL IN OUR BODIES First I tried DIM. I brought down my estradiol from 35 to 10---IT WORKS-----Then I tried progesterone. Almost immediately I began to feel better and stronger-----and my equilibrium started to improve,---so it works also. Jim,---if only we had doctors out there who knew how to balance our hormones,---we would eliminate many deseases before they even develop.
