I previously posted this in another thread, but it doesn't seem to have gained a response, so I am re-posting in this forum. I came upon a reference to HMB, or beta-Hydroxy beta-Methylbutyrate Monohydrate. It appears that this compound, derived from the amino-acid Leucine, may be useful in counteracting the effects of muscle wastage brought on by ADT or in my case chemo. Does anyone have any additional information on this Dietary supplement ?? I will ask my med onc about it on Thursday when I have my next chemo, and it seems to be readily available either alone or in combination with other amino acids / proteins from a number of the body building supplement shops. Any thoughts ???
