> Over 10 yrs ago it became clear to me that the hormonal protein inhibin was key to some forms of depression my own included. There have been quite a few studies through the years to understand the endocrine changes that occure with sleep deprivation. Some people with depression respond to sleep deprivation very positively. I am positive this is due to an elevation in inhibin b. I tested myself and the results were as I suspected. Being sure that this theory is true has'nt been very productive. Ive written and talked with reseachers that are working in this area and so far it appears I am ignored. Part of the problem is inhibin, it was only identified in 1986 and then it was thought to have a small role in the endocrine system, that of controling fsh production. In 1993 or so inhibin was found in significant quantities in the brain and spinal fluid. Due to this finding, it is now believed inhibin has a larger role in the CNS. This role has'nt been identified. I can't say I understand the action of inhibin. But I know when it is elevated in my system my depression dissapears. Its beyond frustrating to know the cause of my painfull struggle with depression and see years and year go by without inhibin being looked at. I keep struggling on hoping a researcher somewhere will see the light. Just needed to vent I guess. Thanks
