    In this special episode of The Drive, Peter provides a comprehensive overview of the various endocrine systems: the thyroid system, the adrenal system, and the sex hormone system (for both men and women). He walks through the basic biology and the feedback cycles that regulate the production of these hormones and discusses the various options for the treatment of hormone deficiencies. In addition, Peter delves into hormone replacement therapy (HRT), providing nuanced insights into its appropriate usage and the clinical approach he adopts when working with patients.

    00:00 - Intro
    01:02 - The thyroid system
    15:02 - The adrenal system
    26:57 - The female sex hormone system

      Thank YOU Dr. Peter, Really appreciate this episode. Between timestamps 23:30-23:37 you've mentioned a supplement (Phosphatidylserine(?)) for your patient and yourself to suppress an adrenal system. I can't find the exact spelling in your show notes. Can you please confirm if the supplement Phosphatidylserine is what you've mentioned ?

    Spot on re the thyroid. Been hypo for about 40 years. I've had to educate myself to exactly how you explained everything. And source my own meds, do my own labs, because it's been impossible to find a doctor who will test and treat appropriately. Thanks! Very validating.

      @Daniel1RM As Peter indicated, testing only TSH and treating with only a T4 med does not work well for all patients, so it isn't appropriate to offer nothing else, even if it is the standard.

    Amazing breakdown. The information out there on the internet for the endocrine system holistically, from a bird's eye view, is sparse or hidden in textbooks. Truly appreciate the at no-cost overview of these otherwise complex systems. Definitely information everyone needs to know and be aware of for themselves and those they care for.

    Very well done with the graphics...one of the times it was worth it to sit down and watch rather than listen to the podcast on my walk. What is interesting about the pituitary ( in my experience ) is that a tumour may be responsible for disturbances in many systems other than the tissue that is "cancerous". I had a giant macro adenoma (FSHoma) that was not disturbing my life in any tangible way that I could tell...probably had great sperm production, but no real symptoms. At the same time, I was a reactive hypoglycaemic, for no known reason. With diet, I could control the negative effects of hypoglycaemia. Once the adenoma was discovered and the first surgery performed in an attempt to "debulk" it, I lost thyroid and some adrenal function. The second, more involved surgery, resulted in regaining thyroid function, only minimal decrease in adrenal function, but total loss of FSH and LH. Plus I am still a reactive hypoglycaemic. Perhaps it has something to do with the original tumour or not. But I wouldn't rule it out. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future.

    Good afternoon. I'm not sure if you will check this but I do have a question. I've been listening to all your podcasts for awhile and really have learned alot. I just had blood work done and I have a question. I had half my thyroid removed. I had my TSH and Free T4 tested and it came back a little high at 5.36. I guess I'm asking for your opinion on what I should do next. Should I get my T3 and FreeT3 tested?

    Thanks so much for the information about the transfer situation to menopause/ perimenopause. There are so many more symptoms that are really serious (except for hot flushes or night sweats) like difficulties to concentrate, brain fog, heart racing, anxiety or paralyzing joint aches. Many women with these symptoms are sent to psychiatrists or orthopedists (me included) but it was acutally the fluctuation of hormones, especially estrogen and testosterone (which is as of today rarely prescribed in Germany since it is not licensed for women yet!!!). It was a real fight to get progesterone and estrogen prescribed, I was seeing at least 6 doctors and spending 1000s of€ to get help. Now I am on HRT in perimenopause and slowly feeling better.

    • Michael Nguyen
      Michael Nguyen 3 місяці тому

      That’s concerning that women with those symptoms are getting misdiagnosed and sent to psychiatrists despite not having psychiatric conditions. I guess people will just have to watch this video or realise the hard way. I hope they don’t realise the hard way though, and get the right treatment.

    I've had high TSH for years (am now a post menopausal woman) but whenever my doctor raises my dose of Tirosint beyond 75 mcg, I feel very wired, hot, digestion speeds up, etc. The thing is, she only raises it to 88! And the TSH stays in the 4-5 range. Do you think this is a t4-t3 conversion issue? I'm concerned about continuing to have a low functioning thyroid but don't want to feel so wired when I up the dose.

    doctor, I am premenopausal 52 getting HRT plus anticonceptional, it would be so important to understand how the system function while getting anticonceptional treatment and estradiol gel,because some ladies need up to 200mg HRT some 5 mg , some 1 mg and it varies a lot ,but in most cases it is challenging to keep under control and forecast how if the ovaries are producing few eggs yet while getting hrt , but especially how each individual can adjust estradiol gel dosage. thanks for your answer

    For a percentage of us, there is an intolerance to progesterone. Adding progesterone during the luteal phase dramatically increases PMS symptoms. Its not the rapid decline of progesterone, its the progesterone itself. I tried virtually every variation, duration and combo of prog and/or estrogen and only in menopause found relief

  • Noel Dunn

    Dr mentions looking at Free T level (and other things) when deciding on Trt. This because Dr says free T is the truly active part of T as it is unbound. My question is, as the bond of T to albumin is relatively weak (not nearly as strong as bond to shbg), can the albumin bound T also be considered in the TRT decision, as many labs consider bioavailable T to be the sum of Free T plus Albumin bound T (because of the weaker bond to albumin). It seems that the body can unlock albumin bound T relatively easily from my reading. My thoughts would be that bioavailable T could be defined as the sum of Free T plus a % "of Albumin bound. Comments will be appreciated

    I'd love for you to explain any benefits (if there are?) of bioidentical HRT over synthetic, or can a woman use either? And why do we want FSH to stay lower and not rise high like we typically see in menopausal women? And also, if a woman is experiencing night sweats and hot flashes should she be on HRT at that point? Or should she only go onto HRT if FSH is rising?

    With respect to the adrenal system, Peter gave the impression to suggest licorice to combat obesity, IR, ect; however, licorice increases cortisol as well as IR and obesity, how am I going to take licorice for those problems when I already have increased cortisol? It's contradictory, cause licorice is said to lower IR and fight obesity but all these dysfunctional states increases cortisol which increases blood pressure too.

    As for a pharmaceutical fix to PMS a better fix would be that all women who menstruate should be able to take a couple days off to hang out with each other and focus on well-being away from all responsibility exception nurturing herself and each other. I think women deserve that each month and maybe the man can step up and take over while she's gone even if it's just an overnight in a nice hotel and a day at the spa.

    A lot of information here to digest. I know patient insurance can be nitpicky with various blood test coverages, but I'm real curious why one doctor would test the t3, t4, and rT3, where another doctor only checks one.
    Most people do not know how to relay the important information that would help a doctor hone in on the actual problem. And, anecdotally, most doctors address symptoms rather than root cause. (if such can even be determined)
    Seems to me there should be a higher standard for these blood panel tests.
    There's too much I don't know, but it seems to me the Thyroid impacts SO many other hormones, that there should be a much more comprehensive testing process by default.

    Damn dude you should just say “ I don’t treat anyone but drop a check at the front counter because I’m afraid to treat hormone related issues but I like your money. Thanks and come again. Oops you can’t get it up….lol so I guess telling you to come was a bad choice of words”…. Give your patients some freaking T so they can function properly and give them 2.5 of letrozole once or twice a week to keep the nads working. I had a doc like you in my younger years and lost the quality of life because he was afraid to treat. My message to doctors like that get off your high horse and treat your patients or hang it up. You’re screwing up they’re lives. By the way if you use an AI to cut the E2 you can keep the bones strong just by giving (heaven forbid) a bit more testosterone😮😮😮😮😮😮
