Hey guys

I'm a new member after stumbling across DG's videos on Youtube.
I'm loving the forum, lots of really good advice and a great bunch of helpful and friendly members.

I'm 38 and I've just got back into weight training after a long 2 year hiatus.
I know for a fact I have high estrogen levels.
I suffer the typical symptoms:
Find it very hard to build muscle regardless of how hard I train, Sexual dysfunction (low libido, no morning erections, decreased erectile function)
Enlarged breasts
Enlarged prostate
Abdominal fat
Feeling tired
Loss of muscle mass
Slight depression.

I was reading about about Aromasin.
My question is, can I take aromasin on its own -without taking any other stuff, in order to rid my high estrogen.

Please forgive me of my ignorance but your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Estrogen might be fine and your iron levels just low... privatemdlabs. com a full male hormonal panel to see what's what or simply a doc visit.

Bloodwork first and foremost. Its impossible to know exactly what's causing these issues without it. Check privatemdlabs.

Hey guys
Thanks for the responses.
BTW 44 I'm in the UK so I don't think I can make use of privatemdlabs.
I'll have to find a private doc because my GP is a complete waste of time, a really ignorant fool.
Do I just look for an estrogen level test.?

You need a female hormonal panel these are good for both Women and Men this way you get your estrogen checked as well

Cool
I'm gonna get my blood tests done. And take it from there.
So hypothetically speaking, if my results are high estrogen levels, then can I use Aromasin to reduce my estrogen levels?

You want the Female Hormone panel. That tests for the following:

Estradiol, Serum
Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Testosterone, Serum (Total Only)
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Comprehensive Metabolic Profile

Hi Guys
Just an update.. I've managed to get some quotes for tests in the London.

However, the final test, comprehensive Metabolic Profile, is proving to be very dear for me and is out of my budget.

Is it necessary to get this last test done?

It's good to check, but in comparison to the other tests it's not as important
