Have you read the study? The men were healthy and normogonadal and had testosterone induced hypogonadism (for the purpose of evaluating the effect of hCG on testosterone production),exactly as is the case with juicers. hCG injection at 250 IU EOD seemed to approach physiological levels of testosterone production based on intratesticular testosterone measurements.
Yes I'm familiar w the study but are you comparing INTRATESTICULAR TT levels with that of SERUM? I hope not because that particular study reinforces what Iv'e been saying, that HCG increases INTRTATESTICULAR TT needed for spermatogenesis. So what else is new. It's amazing the study was even published IMO
The reason AI don't effect GONADAL TT production secondary to HCG use? They do NOT cross the blood/gonadal barrier in either males or females, and is A PRIMARY REASON AI's are not "as efficacious" in females with BREAST CA whom have not reached menopause.
AI's also do not effect ADRENAL E-2 production. Their PRIMARY benefit is the reduction in PERIPHERAL AROMATIZATION of TT into E-2, a process which is responsible for roughly 80% of MALE E-2 production yet only 30% in MENSTRUATING females.
I will try to post the entire study.
