Good levels of pregnenolone are very important.
But there is another interesting hormone, DHEAs.
If you take measurement of major steroid hormones in the blood of very healthy person, (in the morning)
you will find that by weight
95% is DHEAs
1% all other Steroid hormones combined
add DHEAs to your list.
or when testing on day 3-4 of monthly cycle,
use this script
1 ------- Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential
2 ------- NMR LipoProfileŽ
3 ------- Pregnenolone
4 ------- Progesterone
5 ------- 17α-Hydroxyprogesterone by HPLC-MS/MS
6 ------- Cortisol, Three Specimens (7:30AM, 12PM, 2:30PM)
7 ------- DHEA
8 ------- (DHEA) Sulfate
9 ------- Androstenedione by RIA
10 ------- Testosterone, Total
11 ------- SHBG
12 ------- Dihydrotestosterone
13 ------- 5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-Diol Glucuronide, Serum
14 ------- Estradiol,*Sensitive 140244*
15 ------- Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH)
16 ------- Reverse T3
17 ------- C-Reactive Protein (CRP), High Sensitivity (Cardiac Risk Assessment)
18 ------- Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy
19 ------- Osteocalcin, Serum

Is there any chance you've got a parasite such as giardia or a lovely critter like h. Pylori? You might consider running the GI Effects test From Metametrix DNA Stool Analysis with GI Effects - Metametrix Clinical LaboratoryThis belching/nausea/bloated thing is really getting old. My pants are no longer loose on me!!!! I am bummed with this and I want to go into reverse to 2 months ago when I wasn't afflicted.
The Anterior Lobe
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
Growth Hormone (GH)
Alpha Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (α-MSH)
The Posterior Lobe
you are deficient in
Alpha Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (α-MSH)
to lesser extend
nails, digestive, joints & muscless
More complete replacement are hard to get.
There are two easily available replacements,
Melanotan II (MT2)
Only Melanotan II (MT2) is worth taking.
It comes in 10mg vials that have to be dissolved in Bacteriostatic Water.
Subcutaneous injections 2x/week, dose (0.1-0.5)mg/shot
Followed by sun exposure (can be short)
Must have a clean skin.
Some blemishes may become excessively dark.
First couple or few injections may see increased sex drive.
When buying over internet, total cost under $100/year
MT-2 (Melanotan II), 10mg

Liver I can do, lamb meat is way too expensive here, even mutton is overpriced! Can you overeat liver? Also is it okay if it has been frozen?
Watch Hgb if it is close to the top range
men Range: 13 - 17 g/dl
women range xxxxxx
If need to raise Hgb or ferritin, look for UNILIVER
Big tabs made of Argentinian dried beef liver.

I donate blood every 3 months and my HB is usually around 150 - that is iron right? Same thing as Hgb?
I found this on wikipedia:
Hemoglobin concentration measurement is among the most commonly performed blood tests, usually as part of a complete blood count. For example it is typically tested before or after blood donation. Results are reported in g/L, g/dL or mol/L. 1 g/dL equals about 0.6206 mmol/L. Normal levels are:
Men: 13.8 to 18.0 g/dL (138 to 182 g/L, or 8.56 to 11.3 mmol/L)
Women: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL (121 to 151 g/L, or 7.51 to 9.37 mmol/L)
Children: 11 to 16 g/dL (111 to 160 g/L, or 6.83 to 9.93 mmol/L)
Pregnant women: 11 to 12 g/dL (110 to 120 g/L, or 6.83 to 7.45 mmol/L)

I use "magnesium oil" which is a strong brine of magnesium chloride. You rub it on your skin (it is sometimes a little sticky or itchy) and absorb magnesium through the skin, which completely bypasses the digestive system. Then later on you can wash the rest of it off.
If you want to figure out whether the magnesium by mouth is what is hurting you, you could try the magnesium oil instead, and see if matters improve. Yet you wouldn't have to do without magnesium supplementation this way.
On day 3-4
should be at their lowest
You cant really manipulate LH & FSH
When manipulating Steroid Hormones, you want at day 3-4, actually first about 12 days
so, you are low progesterone by any measure.
Women should have DHEA~400 μg/dL
at any time
In healthy person when you add up all major steroid hormones together,
DHEAs is 95%
all other together 1%
You are missing 70% of steroid hormones.
I am not clear on HCG,
but I think it can only hurt.
wonder what dr Kruse thgink about HCG supplementation for purpose of loosing weight.
I am injecting 500-600iu Every Other Day
for tyhe last 5 years
hate to loose my testicles and scrotum, I use testosterone injections.
Pregnenolone can be measured any day.
