I was suffering from PCOD for last 7 years with irregular periods in the start and followed by no periods at all for a year. i Had put on a lot of weight, i have facial hair and thin hair on the scalp. But for the last seven months, my periods have got regular without any medication. I had stopped all my medications more than a year ago. But the problem is ever since my periods have got normal, i have acne breakouts on my face and its weird cause in the whole of my life time up till now i have never seen a spot on my face and the excess body hair on the face and stomach still remains. Kindly help me with something to treat the acne and excessive hair along with keeping in mind that i don’t want to disturb the periods which are now normal.
The aim of this study was to determine if a change in protein/carbohydrate ratio influences plasma steroid hormone concentrations. There is little information about the effects of specific dietary components on steroid hormone metabolism in humans. Testosterone concentrations in seven normal men were consistently higher after ten days on a high carbohydrate diet (468 +/- 34 ng/dl, mean +/- .) than during a high protein diet (371 +/- 23 ng/dl, p less than ) and were accompanied by parallel changes in sex hormone binding globulin ( +/- nmol/l vs. +/- nmol/l respectively, p less than ). By contrast, cortisol concentrations were consistently lower during the high carbohydrate diet than during the high protein diet ( +/- micrograms/dl vs. +/- micrograms/dl respectively, p less than ), and there were parallel changes in corticosteroid binding globulin concentrations (635 +/- 60 nmol/l vs. 754 +/- 31 nmol/l respectively, p less than ). The diets were equal in total calories and fat. These consistent and reciprocal changes suggest that the ratio of protein to carbohydrate in the human diet is an important regulatory factor for steroid hormone plasma levels and for liver-derived hormone binding proteins.
In males with delayed puberty: Various dosage regimens have been used; some call for lower dosages initially with gradual increases as puberty progresses, with or without a decrease to maintenance levels. Other regimens call for higher dosage to induce pubertal changes and lower dosage for maintenance after puberty. The chronological and skeletal ages must be taken into consideration, both in determining the initial dose and in adjusting the dose. Dosage is within the range of 50 to 200 mg every 2 to 4 weeks for a limited duration, for example, 4 to 6 months. X-rays should be taken at appropriate intervals to determine the amount of bone maturation and skeletal development (see INDICATIONS AND USAGE and WARNINGS ).
