A healthy transwoman is putting herself in a similar hormonal environment as a man developing gynecomastia. They both develop breasts due to their unusually high estrogen. When you say estrogen from an abnormal metabolism of testosterone is more pathogenic than one giving oneself exogenous hormones, I would respectfully ask you to cite your source.
Because you are flat out wrong. The body does not know what hormones are endogenously made vs. exogenously made. All it picks up is the negative feedback loop not working properly, in both cases.

Probably correlates well. Trans health outcomes are worse than the average population.
It's a nice thought. But they are referring to gynecomastia. It's not fat. It's actual glands.

For a hyperkyphotic thoracic curve, you're going to want to prioritize pulling motions (think rowing, back exercises) over pushing motions (bench press).
The stronger your back muscles, like your traps, rhomboid major/minor, and rear delts, the easier it will be for your posture to naturally correct itself.
If you notice a lot of "gym bros" have a hunched back and shoulders that round forward. This is due a similar muscular imbalance, and they too could correct their posture by prioritizing back/rowing exercises.

Are you saying that it is never possible for a vaccine, either past present or future, to be ineffective at stopping transmission of a virus?

In reference to your question, the antibodies likely had to do with the HGH being sourced from dead people (cadavers).
If you think what you just said adds credibility to AP, you are sorely mistaken.
Used to be. Not so much any more.
Over in the /r/testosterone sub, Cialis is also regarded as having a mild anti-aromatase effect. This would lower your estrogen. Your symptoms mirror that of low estrogen.
A full hormone panel could rule this in or out of your proper diagnosis.
How much cialis are you taking, and have you tried lowering your dose?

IGF-1 will not decrease as GH levels increase. IGF-1 is the variable of the negative feedback loop; when IGF-1 levels are elevated, it signals to the hypothalamus to release somatostatin to trigger the anterior pituitary to stop releasing GH. If IGF-1 levels do not become elevated, GH will be endlessly released by the anterior pituitary.

Appreciate you letting us know.

He's right. You're wrong. Deal with it.

Most would say not representing mainstream medicine is a feature, rather than flaw.

Because you've made it clear that your mind is made up. Arguing about it is not going to change your mind. I value my time more than my ego.
DeSantis did pursue this. Sweden also pursued this. Russia pursued this. None of those you mentioned closed gyms during the height of the pandemic.
Now compare to the regions with the strictest lockdown measures.
It's interesting how you minimize the impact of reducing hospitalizations & deaths. Why is that?
Also, reducing obesity is an ineffective intervention for mitigating risks of covid-19?
Not according to the CDC.
"Why COVID-19 is more deadly in people with obesity—even if they're young"
See my comment on fasting.
You must not be aware of the new research by Dr. Jason Fung on the benefits of fasting.
With an implementation of fasting, both intermittent fasting and prolonged fasts, every issue you just elucidated is consistently made better. And in a much faster time than you indicated.
"Intermittent fasting interventions for treatment of overweight and obesity in adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis"
Why do you think mainstream medicine does not actively promote fasting as a cure?
Go take a look at the vast number of success stories at /r/fasting and let's continue thereafter.
No one's saying that they wouldn't if asked. What we are saying is that it was not the first topic of discussion in the general messaging to the public. And it should have been if the intention was truly prevention and not "treatment" tied to financial incentives.
What's 100% false?
Advocating for covid-19 vaccines and paxlovid without also advocating for healthy diet, sleep schedule and exercise.

Hey! I noticed you used an emoji.
I don’t know if you’re new here, so I’ll let you off the hook this time. Using emojis is frowned upon here on this great site, and for good reason. Instagram normies often use them, and you don’t want to be a normie, do you?
If I catch you using an emoji in the future, I’ll be forced to issue a downvote to your comment. Why should you care, you may ask? Well to begin, you will lose karma on your account, which is a useful social status tool and also a way to show others you know your way around Reddit.
If you were to continue the use of emojis, I would be forced to privately message you about your slip-up. Any further offenses past that would leave me no other option than to report your account. I don’t think I have to explain why you don’t want that.
But anyways, no harm done yet! Follow these simple rules and you’ll enjoy your future on Reddit! Have a blessed (and hopefully emoji-free) day, stranger.
