    I had same concerns. I thought she was an anthropologist but dont think she is. actually several years ago she was on tv interview....questioning her. Maybe she has a doc backing her up. there is an MD with her on her book cover.

    Dzugan has my cycling my PG and Triest through out the month... pg is lower during TOTM, then increases for 10days along w/adding .1ml of Triest, then I increase again and drop the triest....

    I'm seeing success - but I still have migraines, and the last 5days before I cycle my sleep goes to crap, so I think I need more pg the last 5days of my cycle...

    so here's what my BHRT Supplementation looks like

    PG .4 ml for TOTM

    PG.8 ml & .1ml Triest for 10days

    PG 1.0 ml for the remainder of my cycle

    it looks like my cycle is adjusting to a 28 day cycle... but I guess we'll see....

    When I firsr heard of cycling after meno I thought it was a good idea. maybe think I am younger. lol but then I started thinking about cells aging and the building of a lining and sloughing off every month.....more chance for "mistake"?

    Uzzi reis thinks its nuts.

    Question everything... Jack advocates that... we've each got to find something that works well for us....

    So how many mg is a ml of pg? You take once a day or twice a day? If twice that amount is for each or split? Just trying to compare what I am currently on.

    fwiw When I was peri I started having something called "scintillating scotoma" ocular migraines? scared the **** out of me. thought I was stroking. doc I had then said to use borage seed oil, I did and they stopped. when I finished with cycling, post meno never had it happen BUT when I started using E for uti's I was getting all the time, they came back. That was an eye opener. So in my case I think the fluctuations of E cause this "silent migraine".

    Thanks. I've read a few time that you are pleased with him so far. Any regrets yet? With Jack's response to TS Wiley, makes me think twice. I have no idea yet what this new doc will do for cycling. She said she wants her patients to start the first month doing daily and then go into cycling. Will be interesting to see what she does next month. This pg sure made my boobs grow. I think I am only doing 40 mg a day. I have to look it up again.

    Yeah the migraines are mostly gone - though today I feel like I've got one lurking...add that to the bad sleep the past couple of nights - all leads me to the conclusion I need more PG at the end of my cycle, for the last 5 days... I feel off right now so I know TOTM is soon.

    Jack suggested in my consults considering 200mg prometrium and my PCP wants to see my labs and see what adjustments Dzugan does

    one things for sure my thyroid is going crazy... I'm constantly hot, and can't cool off unless the AC is cranked or I'm in a pool of ice... I think its time to push for some Cytomel again...

    Shin Feeling hot would not make me think more thyroid maybe too much? just a thought
  11. Shijin13

    Shijin13 Guest

    I used to be always cold. And my TSH was "normal" Now that my thyroid had turned on when I start getting really hot usually my TSH is sky high. The question is what does my FT3:RT3 ratio look like

    This was how I was all last winter and my TSH was out of bounds & my T3 was non existent

    Interesting. guess like dr K says: Context. when I was peri I was hot all the time...use to stick my head in freezer, the ac was set at 65, then feel faint outside in the heat.

    when I first started using E sometimes I would get cold or more precisely, everyone was hot from weather and I didnt notice. I would lower dose of E....thinking it was scewing with my thyroid. getting a SHBG test to make sure it isn't high, since E and Thyroid are tied and shbg will go after E when raised and Thyroid hormone.

    so much to put together

    Yeah well I'm extremely E dominant even after 3 mths of BHRT & T dominant. That's the joys of having PCOS & migraines trying to fix 2 things.

    When we tested at the end of may my Pg:E2 ratio wasn't even in range it was 75:1, prior to that it was 8:1 & 4:1. Yeah that low on Pg. I really don't think I need the TriEst going off my intuition but I guess we'll see w/the next set of labs in 3wks

    Gretch, with the pee thing. I have it too. What I noticed is when I supplemented with T, it went away. You probably are though with your protocol.

    Shijin13 Guest

    hahaha... no T for me. my T production is above range w/o DHEA... now its really out of range... LOL... so its not that...I will provide a comment about this to Dzugan for my next update. I'm looking fwd to when my Pg:E2 is at the top of the range - b/c once that happens - My T will start to work its magic on Body comp, then add that to the CT... OH YEAH

    I also plan to discuss w/ PCP and MW. I may request a visit to a pelvic floor rehabilitation specialist, for therapy... I'm going to keep doing my squats, as well as grok squat/pee in the shower al la http://mamasweat.blogspot.com/2010/05/pelvic-floor-party-kegels-are-not.html

    interesting I've had these on and off for 4 years but the only thing I have been able to trace them to is hypoglycemia incidents.

    thanks for posting this
