Subject: Re: Lupron preventative
No. Lupron lowers the LH (and FSH) level. This stops
the stimulation to the adrenal glands. In case of hyperplasia,
you would expect the adrenal glands to return to normal.
Likewise some of the early cases of adenomas, may
also reduce in size. Carcinomas are less likely to
shrink in size, but Lupron may prevent some of them
from enlarging. Thus Lupron does more than "just mask
Hope that helps,
