Could a soy heavy vegan diet be causing hypogonadism on left wing folks??



www.researchgate.net/publication/50213256_Hypogonadism_and_erectile_dysfunction_associated_with_soy_product_consumption

We present the case of a 19-y-old type 1 diabetic but otherwise healthy man with sudden onset of loss of libido and erectile dysfunction after the ingestion of large quantities of soy-based products in a vegan-style diet. Blood levels of free and total testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) were taken at the initial presentation for examination and continuously monitored up to 2 y after discontinuation of the vegan diet. Blood concentrations of free and total testosterone were initially decreased, whereas DHEA was increased. These parameters normalized within 1 y after cessation of the vegan diet.

2. Yep...estrogenic soy

No wonder the Left Coast snowflakes are so effeminate.

4. As a Type 1 diabetic

A vegan diet is the WORST thing you can do. It is carb heavy, which will cause huge spikes in you blood glucose levels. The best possible diet with respect for stable sugar levels is extremely low carb. I eat a lot of meat, and small amounts of low glycemic index vegetables. I eat virtually no bread, pasta, rice, zero potatoes, and no other starchy foods.

My A1C is 5.1 so I must be doing something right.

5. after the ingestion of large quantities

This diet included a large amount of soy products equalling 360 mg of isoflavones per day.

So roughly 9 times higher than what the average vegan actually consumes in the day

6. Women in the change

It can be beneficial because of the estrogen, I think like much else balance is the key.
