Low Free Testosterone, High Estradiol, Mid Total Testosterone
This situation suggests excessive aromatase activity, which converts free testosterone to estrogen. Inhibition of aromatase and reduction in aromatase-containing tissue (fat) is indicated. Suggestions include:
* Take the following supplements:
o Zinc—50 milligrams (mg)/day
o Acetyl-L-carnitine—1000 to 2000 mg/day
o Muira puama—850 mg/day
o Chrysin—1500 mg/day
o Piperine—10 mg/day to enhance absorption of chrysin
o Quercetin—500 to 1000 mg/day
* Lose weight to reduce aromatase activity.
* Reduce or eliminate alcohol to enable the liver to better remove excess estrogen.
* Review all current medications to see if they are interfering with healthy liver function. Common medications that affect liver function are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as naproxen, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and aspirin; the statin class of cholesterol-lowering drugs; some heart medications; some blood pressure–lowering medications; and some antidepressants. Drugs being prescribed to treat the symptoms of testosterone deficiency (such as the statins and certain antidepressants) may actually aggravate the testosterone deficit, thus making the cholesterol problem or depression worse. However, do not discontinue any prescription medicine without consulting your physician.
* If all of the above fail to increase free testosterone and lower excess estradiol, consider discussing with your physician the use of the aromatase inhibitor anastrozole at the very low dose of 0.5 mg twice per week.

I got that from this interesting article about male testosterone and prostate cancer. A little off topic, but the article covers a lot of natural supplements that can help to lower estrogen and raise testosterone. There is much more info in the article, check it out here: http://www.lef.org/protocols/male_reproductive/male_hormone_restoration_02.htm
