    Pregnenolone & DHEA, any of you guys taking them and seeing benefits?

    I take both at Defy's recommendation. Evidently, the DHEA is helping to lower my SHBG and raising my Free T. That's what Defy tells me.

    PT 141

    Thank you. This can be a bit confusing for an old guy. A nurse told me to mix 10 ml of water but the bottle only holds 4, so I know that couldn't be right. The manufacturer said to mix 1 or ml. If I mixed 2ml, would I draw 10 units?

    PT 141

    I have the same questions about reconstituting PT-141. I want to be sure I have it right to avoid any sad consequences. I mix 1ml of bacteriostatic water into 10mg of Pt-141? I want start with 0.5mg initial dose which would be 5 on my insulin syringe? 1 mg would be 10 units? I did search...

    How (I think) I was able to control my Hematocrit and High Iron

    How long before you eat? Why is an empty stomach important?

    How (I think) I was able to control my Hematocrit and High Iron

    Thanks for the info. I also struggle with high HCT. I was using IP6 a while back and it was better. Stopped and it got worse. Never connected the two. Can you explain how the Lactoferrin works to decrease HCT?

    Switching from 2x to 3x weekly injections

    Thanks. This the schedule I was thinking about. Have you noticed any change with your HCT?

    Switching from 2x to 3x weekly injections

    I had my lab consult with Defy today. My HCT is high, partly due to the fact I live at high altitude. Nurse Jill suggested I try injecting testosterone 3 times a week instead of 2 to see if that would help lower it. She also thought it might keep the E2 down to the point I wouldn't need an AI...

    How to Lower Hematocrit Using Grapefruit Seed Extract Naringin

    Dehydration is also a big factor. I forget the ratio, but there is a ratio between HCT and your red cell blood count to determine if you are dehydrated. You can google it. Typically, I am a bit dehydrated as I live in the desert. I was taking 1000 mg of Narigin each morning but upped it to...

    How to Lower Hematocrit Using Grapefruit Seed Extract Naringin

    My HCT is usually in the high 40's to low 50's. I've been taking Naringin (Grapefruit Seed Extract) for awhile. In my consult with Defy, they recommend it. I also recently started Nattokinase. It is a blood thinner and some say that it also lowers HCT. I just had my labs done, so I'll know more...

    Cheapest Way to Order Labs?

    Thanks. I almost always use Discounted Labs (Lab Corp here) because I want one standard. My main question was whether or not it's cheaper to order directly through Discounted Labs or through Defy. With the 20% discount, ordering through DL should be cheaper.

    Cheapest Way to Order Labs?

    I am a Defy patient and have always ordered my labs through them. Would it be cheaper to continue ordering through them or to go through Discounted Labs (Lab Corp here for me)? My total cost for all the labs Defy wants is about $300. My wife is also a patient, so it adds up. Will Defy let you...

    HCG Limited Supply?

    If compounding pharmacies are out, I don't believe we have we have any choice but to go to big pharma along with their big prices.
