More recently I've found I can keep my testosterone at about 550 with only DHEA supplementation.
I have no intention of following the conventional opinion that chemical castration is the way to treat prostate problems. My reference above about is about the correlation between T4 and and prostate enlargement, which surprised me. This spike in the PSA correlates exactly with the past four months of taking natural desiccated thyroid.
Personally, I take a low-dosage of an "aromatase inhibitor" anastrosal? prescribed by my Alt. MD to block the conversion of testosterone to estrogens. (usually prescribed to women for breast cancer - which sent my pharmacist through a loop.) Before that I followed Lee's advice to use topical progesterone (to counteract any estrogens). Knock on wood, I am in my mid sixties without any prostate enlargement...[
[b]I bet you could "correlate" wearing tennis shoes with prostate enlargement too. What if, as MM claims, T3 and T4 or unimportant hormones that have some use for managing the immune system, but little else if they are low or missing, and that the true culprit is the EBV virus of certain types and at certain stages? If the virus is the cause, it could affect both T4 levels and the prostate.
Another theory, rank speculation, is that the desiccated thyroid either aggravated an existing EBV, or maybe even introduced a virus.
When I stopped the iodine, both got much worse. I ended in the ER a couple of times, once with both a-fib and prostate block. I restarted iodine at higher dosage and both problems stopped in about two weeks. No problems since March 2018.
