When does DIM start to work?

In order to fight the water retention (read: WEIGHT GAIN ! ) of the Androgel, I have started taking DIM (diindolylmethane).

This is a natural product which suppossedly could stop the conversion of testosterone into estrogen (which can cause weight gain).

I have been taking 2 capsules a day (each containing 250 mgs of DIM) for about a week now. Does anyone know when the effects kick in?

When does DIM start to work?

Hi When I first started taking DIM, I noticed a difference at about two weeks. I'm sure everyone is different, but that's probably a ballpark.

Hi Surferbabe
Just curious. What is your doseage on DIM and what sysmptoms has it helped you with? I read that the preferred dosage is 500mg twice a day. I'm just trying to gather some information before I discuss it with my doctor. Thanks for sharing!

500 mg a day of DIM is a HUGE dose - unless it's the 20-25% DIM capsules out there that appear to be pure DIM when you glance at the label (misleading, if you ask me).

I take two Source Naturals DIM capsules a day, 12 hours apart. Each contains 100mg of DIM, for a total of 200mg per day. The "usual" dose is 100-125mg/day (meaning that's the dose that has been most studied).

Thanks for the clarification SurferBabe. All the information out there can be so overwhelming. I am considering DIM with Calcium-D-Glucarate to avoid estrogen overload and want to be sure I have the right information. All this is new to my, very conventional, GYN, who after much coaxing has finally agreed to help me seek BHRT as apposed to HRT. I have agreed to do the initial research and she's agreed to help me make informed decisions.
