Just wanted to share my good news with all the Peaters (and lurkers )
Today I got my latest blood tests results and... things so much better! In fact, I think these results mean I'm no longer Oestrogen Dominant!!!!!!!
The stupid doctors forgot to take my vit D, prolactin, FSH, and LH, so I'll need more tests for this, but here goes:
Bloods were taken on day 24 of a 24 day cycle, so luteal phase.
Progesterone is still low - but only just outside range! Mine is 5, range is 5.3 -> 86
Oestrogen - HUGE improvement here!!!! I cant believe it. Mine is 218; range is 161 -> 774. At my first set of tests, my Oestrogen was 2028!!!
Cortisol is still high - 669; range is 200 - 600.
Slight improvement in T4 - 13.4 (from 12.4). Range is 12 - 22.
TSH is raising slightly... Gone up to 1.6 from 1.42. Need to keep an eye on this.
Total Cholesterol is down to 7 (last time it was 8ish). They didnt do the breakdown.
Ferritin is down to 20 from 35. No surprises there... Range is 10 - 160.
And all I've done is used Ray Peat's progesterone oil, followed his dietary suggestions, and taken liquid Vit D.
All in all: I am very happy today
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
