I think you’re right hearts, it’s best not to change too much at once. I’ve just been concerned about medication interactions; this especially true since I don’t have a solid understanding of the details of hormone receptor sites. I’ve read about how certain hormones ‘beat out' other hormones to receptor sites, which then influences your hormonal equilibrium and results in free or unattached hormones (such as ‘free testosterone’). So, I just wasn’t sure if, say, the progesterone from metformin might ‘beat out’ the good estrogen that is metabolized by the DIM and throw off the potential benefits that may be obtained by DIM. I don’t know if this makes any sense or I’m talking nonsense, like I said I don’t have a good understanding of the science behind hormonal receptor sites?
Thank you so much for this link! It is very encouraging and also many parts of it ring especially true for me. For instance, I also have very thick and long hair, so the shedding hadn’t really bothered me until recently. It’s also such a relief to know that it’s safe to take DIM with metformin. You’re such a wizard with research hearts! <3
And thanks for confirming that it seems like I have estrogen dominance, it’s very tricky with those lists because there are always a lot of broadly applicable symptoms.
I'm glad that the review was helpful! (: Another thing that's weird is she has a review on inositol saying that she gained something like 15lbs in 3 months on it. Crazy stuff, haha!
