Could lack of not eating fish or taking fish oils for several months cause elevated shbg as well as increasing Arachonic acid to high through diet also impacted my prostrate as resulting causing inflammation of vascular system elevated Lp(A). Taking flush niacin 500 mgs x2 , vitamin C 3000 mgs and 3000 mgs lysine for lp(a), but alot of studies on lp(a) links back to estrogens as main culprit mainly as too much.Niacin does not flush as hard as it used to could my body get adjusted to it? I know the main problem is in estrogen metabolism that is a given..taking in flax and fish oils I had testosterone
of 1200 with no AI and shbg of 17 and e2 of 17 which makes sense of simply blalcning out my EFA should resolve the problem. I also had severe iodine deficincy as well and are on iodoral for that 50 mgs, I stopped the DIM because it was lowering my homocysteine even lower depleting my low methyl groups to begin with, but I am replenish them..
