Depression in some women linked to a single enzyme

Posted by Hugh on March 21, 2023, at 13:01:08

Premenopausal women who suffer from depresson are much more likely to have low levels of estradiol than premenopausal women who aren't depressed. The depressed women's microbiome was found to degrade estradiol far more quickly than the microbiome of women who weren't depressed. Perhaps premenopausal women who are depressed would be especially good candidates for fecal transplant, or for the FDA-approved fecal drug Rebyota.

Do you know whether or not there is a corresponding reduction in testosterone for males with depression?

Hi Scott,

Low testosterone, especially low free testosterone, can cause depression. I found this thread about it:
