Yeah well, I told my GP I thought I was low on testosterone, but she wouldn't even measure me. Think this'll help?

I would not be terribly surprised to hear that my remyelination would have been better if I had not had my vasectomy.

So I wonder if medication that blocks testosterone has any affect on MS. Because there are a lot of medications that do that, like finasteride, which is taken for prostate problems etc. Can these medications make MS worse?

Who knows. They were mice and were neither demyelinated by MS nor EAE. They were just demyelinated.
