I'm really amazed and yet thankful that Dr Judy would respond to emails on clinical questions because it could easily become overwhelming with all the desperate pwc's out here. But since she does seem to be ok with it, I think it would be great to ask her in one email about all of the endocrine contribution to xmrv replication, rather than just one hormone. I would ask how significant a contribution cortisol, androgens, estrogen, progesterone, all of them make on xmrv replication....and if supplementing these hormones for those who need them is a bad idea. Many of us are supplementing these hormones. It seems more research is needed to answer these questions adequately because I read that xmrv likes the tissue with the highest sex hormone receptors, then I read that it loves the stress hormones, then I read that it lives predominantly in the immune cells. Seems we have a ways to go with understanding this issue better.....but maybe Dr Judy can clarify this some for us.
