How much can we tell about a person's hormonal profile by looking at them/questionning them?

Ex: balding would indicate high levels of dihydrotestosterone. Gynecomastia would indicate high levels of estradiol, etc.

Anyone have any expertise on this?

No, but it sounds interesting. Similar to nutritional deficiencies manifesting physically. Can you expand on the idea?

I wish I could. :-)

Generally low testosterone levels would be correlated with decreasing muscle mass and a pot belly.

Wrinkles, etc would be indicative of low GH levels.

Extreme leanness, thin butt: lack of insulin (diabetes).

I'd like to learn more on these topics and was wondering if people here knew about this stuff.
