Thanks so much! I'm elated someone besides me is reading about hormones.
And, I thought I'd given a minor warning about that castration you had
when I posted info that testosterone might be a factor in axonal regeneration.
“We can sort out exactly which hormones are regulating these changes,”
I certainly hope so and it's about time IMO. Unfortunately, like with all things MS, I don't think it's going to be easy. Several hormones are manufactured de novo in the brain (DHEA and progesterone among them) so measurements of serum levels when they try to sort this out will not necessarily reflect the concentration of hormones in various regions of the brain.
I am trying to stay on the look out for the outcome of the testosterone trial at UCLA but so far I haven't seen anything.
Take care Bromley--I actually thought we could start a new theory about MS since I was a scuba diver too.
