Testosterone and GBS

December 3, 2007 at 3:07 pm


Thank you for taking the time to read the article. I had pointed out that the referenced studies were done on rats and I am sure the rats did not have GBS. The reference was made simply to point out that the studies suggesat that testosterone and progesterone in seem to have stimulatory influence on the Schwann cells to produce myelin proteins. I believe that the cure for GBS rests simply in that…repair of the myelin sheath.

Your analysis, I must admit, has gone way beyond my comprehension and understanding, so I can not refute or agree to anything you wrote. It is too confusing for me.

However, I would like to point out that two men, who are members of the discussion group have been treated by testosterone and both have experienced a surge in recovery. One so much that he is running now. I don’t think that we should dismiss this so lightly. I stand by my original theory that testsoterone may stimulate the Scwann cells to regenerate the myelin sheath as supported by the testimonials of the two discussion group members who have recovered using testosterone (testosterone cypionate) at high dose.
