    If I take say a 5ar inhibitor I can feel better yeah for sure. If i take something which can increase 5ar activity (like creatine) it makes me worse. This is pretty common in PFS, the optimizing T/DHT approach doesn't work in PFS in my research and often makes guys worse. Alot of the things guys do in order to optimize T/DHT, are having other beneficial effects on the body, so it may not be directly the increase of T/DHT which help guys recover. Anyway just food for thought.

    Hey Pablo this is a quote from the Post Finasteride Syndrome Foundation:

    'A group of Italian researchers gave finasteride to rats and noticed that the number of androgen receptors in their brains went up. Moreover, the effects persisted long after the drug had been discontinued… [T]hey then called in men with PFS, took skin from the penis and found that the density of androgen receptors in men with PFS was about twice that of those without. Now, remember the idea of the testosterone bell curve and damping effects (little testosterone, little growth, more testosterone, more growth, even more testosterone, reduced growth)? I think this is what we are seeing here. With a greater concentration of receptors, the organ becomes more sensitive to testosterone and at a certain point, paradoxically, that sensitivity may shut down.

    But fortunately I find Sun in the AM and PM, along with cold is helping. I did a acouple of ice baths for about an hour each. And the effect has been pretty powerful, towards the end I start to feel euphoric, I start to feel again. PFS for me has cause extreme anhedonia the cold is helping with that. As well as sauna use. The androgen receptor is regulated by sirt1, along with HDAC enzymes.


    'The AR acetylation site is a key target of NAD-dependent and TSA-dependent histone deacetylases [27] and long non coding RNA.[28]' 'NAD dependent histone deacetylase' is referring to sirt1.

    And as I understand it cold can powerfully activate sirt1.

    To be honest, I get quite unconfortable reading all these technical terms (NAD, TSA, sirt1... etc, since I have no idea what most of those terms). However, I am super interested and I wanna have a decent base in biology, chemistry and physics, but I have to admit that I´m totally ignorant. Next months I wanna learn and get at least a superficial understanding of these mechanisms... Recently I finished Epi-Paleo RX and I even understood some things!1 lOL, last year I had read a bit and I just had my head hurting. I also read Going Somewhere. Next al khalili´s Life on the Edge. It is funny how I am super interested right now for these things, compared to my high school years in which I hated biology...
    I´m going for some sea swimming and beach walking, see you!!!
