    this was a new one on me too until about a year ago. Here's an example:


    1: Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2006 Feb;38(2):256-61.

    Chronic administration of anabolic androgenic steroid alters murine thyroid function.
    Fortunato RS, Marassi MP, Chaves EA, Nascimento JH, Rosenthal D, Carvalho DP.
    Endocrine Physiology Laboratory, Carlos Chagas Filho Biophysics Institute, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
    PURPOSE: The administration of anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) to improve athletic performance has increased notably during the past three decades, even among nonathletes. Thyroid function is affected by AAS use in humans, although the mechanisms of the effects of AAS are unclear. We evaluated the effects on thyroid function of supraphysiologic doses of nandrolone decanoate (DECA), which is one of the most anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) used. METHODS: Male Wistar rats were treated with vehicle or 1 mg.100 g(-1) body weight (b.w.) of DECA, once a week for 8 wk, intramuscularly. We analyzed thyroperoxidase (TPO) activity, type 1 iodothyronine deiodinase (D1) activities in liver, kidney, pituitary, and thyroid, and serum levels of total T3, total T4, free T4, and TSH. Parametric and nonparametric t-tests were employed for statistical analyses. RESULTS: Treated animals showed a significant increase in the weight of kidneys and heart, and a decrease in the relative testis weight. Retroperitoneal adipose tissue was only slightly decreased. DECA treatment induced a significant increase in the absolute and relative thyroid gland weight. The concentrations of total serum T3, free T4, and TSH decreased significantly with treatment, but total serum T4 levels were unchanged. Thyroperoxidase activity was unaltered, whereas liver and kidney D1 activities were significantly increased, but pituitary and thyroid D1 did not change. CONCLUSION: Our data indicate that DECA exerts direct actions on the thyroid gland and in the peripheral metabolism of thyroid hormones and might lead to thyroid dysfunction.

The doc believes now from my results that the lactating gynecomastia is being caused by an under active thyroid!! I had no idea that this could cause gynecomastia, learn something new eh.

    Anyway does anyone have any information at all on this? I would like to learn more about it. Apparently the thyroid can cause all your other hormones to get out of balance and thats whats happened to me.

    This just confirms the point to everyone the importance of getting blood tests done to make sure that everything is ok. I was self prescribing myself everything to keep my gyno at bay but nothing worked. If I had gone and had bloods done earlier then this would not have been a problem.
    did your doctor test for an under active thyroid? Did you take steroids before? if so what kind? did you mention this to your doctor?
    Selegiline @ 5mg daily helps take care of the prolactin problem. And you didn't mention what you were taking for your gyno was it a SERM or an AI? is it just puffy nipples?

    it's not actaully "gyno", its hyperprolactinemia. (elevated prolactin)

    you probably have enlarged and/or darkened nips, lactation, and no lumps? decreased libido and function? difficulty acheiving orgasm?

    btw this is the mechanism by which nandrolones cause elevated prolactin:
    nandrolones--> lowered thyroid--> increased prolactin--> lactation and/or enlarged darkened nips and/or negative sexual sides.
