    Default How to boost DHT

    My DHT is not as high as I would like it to be. Even being a normal guy I would prefer optimals levels in any subtance in the body and since im going trough years of being almost an eunuch im researching anything involved with libido.

    Any way to boost DHT? Natural and easy procedures are preferent, as always.

    what is your obession with DHT? Serum DHT isnt even all that useful. Often times serum will come back low but 24 hour urine panels will be twice the top of range.

    I promise you your DHT is high enough that its not causing your symptoms. While it may not be "optimal" its more then adequate.

    Not to mention i have never heard of any way to raise DHT except to go on TRT , and more specifically androgel which has an affinity to raise DHT.

    But your not gona go on TRT since your testosterone is not bad so mute point.

    TRT using gel is the only way I know of. There is a DHT gel available in Europe though...

    You do need to have your levels checked first, you may already be okay. I disagree with some as to the effect DHT has on libido, it is a very powerful androgen, and in my opinion, THE one major T factor with regard to libido. It is very true that there are a lot of other factors at play, NT's are a biggie, as Alex has very concisely layed out.

    Using compounded testosterone cream drove mine up. Putting it on the scrotum gave me a level of 600 in a range of 45-70. Here is a good article on DHT.

    Whats my obsession with DHT?? I dont know, what is my obsession? Maybe a shrunk penis, loss of libido and erectile dysfunction? Im just asking about DHT since I readed and I agree its really important in libido and penis size. If my DHT is ok then fine, apologies for making a pointless thread. I trust your experience, but understand im concerned about having a smaller and flaccid dong.

    Can adrenals or high E2 cause this??

    The only time I tested it was 0.56 ng/mL (0.25-1 ng/mL) .

    There is any evidence of Pregnenolone lowering DHT, by the way?

    Maybe I should have begun the thread with these two questions...

    Hi,

    A natural supplement shown to increase 5AR activity and DHT is Protodioscin. You can get this as an extract from Tribulus or fenugreek.

    I posted some studies about this in finasteride thread p69 here: http://www.allthingsmale.com/forum/s...-Thread/page69

    Man that sounds freaking promising!! I have heard from others good results (one guy even stated penis gains) on Tribulus, but since tribulus messes with LH and Testosterone it is said you can have a crash later on. Quoting from the guy that said that to me:

    most of who use Tribulus Tetris get abnormal high level of LH and a range of 900-1200 of Testerone, these levels fade up and out of a sudden your levels will hit 400 again


    I think "Tribulus Tetris" has to be Tribulus Tribex or something like that. LOL Tetris Tribulus...

    Anyway what is your opinion about this? And what Fenugreek or Tribulus do you reccomend?

    Your more then welcome to pursue raising your DHT. Your talking to the person who is all about going after "optimal" and having good labs as I think its an important component.

    Im simply saying that a DHT of 0.56 on a scale of 0.25-1 is not causing your shrunken penis or your ED. So taking it from .56 to 1 will probably only help a little in your particular situation.

    My DHT is very similar to yours if not even lower despite very high Test and my penis is not shrunken and my ED is markedly improved. Everyone is however different so there is always the chance your situation will improve by raising your DHT but I doubt it.

    Ok Alex thank you for your effort in helping me. My approach is this: get every number in the optimal range. Simple and effective, I think.

    I would imagine that once you get your HPA and/or adrenal output increased then your DHT will also rise as it's part of the adrenal cascade. By raising your metabolic rate and LH your preg and adrenal cascade should increase and i would guess this would result in increase in DHT. Unless there is a specific problem at some point in the cascade e.g Low 5 alpha reducatse activity

    Preg -> DEHA -> TEst -> DHT

    Awesome. Yeah my LH is not optimal either, I want it to be 8 instead of nearly 4.

    This forum rocks! Should I get into another (which ones do you guys reccomend?) to expand my horizons or just begin reading the Big Threads here?

    Just so you know. LH is pulsitile so theres no need for it to be at 8. You can easily have Total T at 800 with a not that high LH provided your leydig sensitivity is good. Your leydig sensitivity is definetly good.
