Hormone Imbalance in HIV men
« on: January 15, 2009, 03:19:28 PM »
Are their any good books or websites out there on this subject ( hormone therapy for HIV men ) ?

Can any one "relate" to this and point me in the right direction ?

(I'm so tired of feeling crappy most days.)

Yes I feel crappy too..   I recently restarted DHEA 200mg a day.  I used to take it when I was first diagnosed, but I was also taking so many other things I just couldn't afford it so  i eventually stopped all supplements, but after looking back at when I actually felt good, I look at that time, and the only thing diffrent was those supplements..  DHEA specifically has been prooven to be gone from HIV Poz people...  and although there has not been a HUGE study funded by drug companies..  There has been SEVERAL smaller independent studies that prove that it helps with energy and may even help with virus control...   Anyway , its cheap, and no toxicities so why not...   I will let you know if I start feeling good again because I just restarted it a few days ago..

There have been links to low testosterone and HIV. Many men who are HIV+ take or have taken some sort of testosterone-replacement therapy (gels, shots, etc).

I forgot to mention, above, the book BUILT TO SURVIVE co-written by Nelson Vergel and Michael Mooney (mentioned above)
