Fsh 36,1 LH 20,1 17 beta estradiol 57pg/ml 209 pmol/l Am i menopausal?

Are you menstruating: Menopause is the loss of menstruation for 12 consecutive months. I dont routinely use lab tests to determine menopause. FSH and LH are dependent on your cycle days, so I cant say if your levels are normal. ...Read more

You should schedule an appointment to sit down with your provider to go over the results and how they affect your health issues. ...Read more

Endo just ordered T3 (liothyronine) today; Cortisol a.m.25.5(6.2-19.4); FSH 169.7(25.8-134.8)-is FSH diagnostic in a post oophorectomy patient?

It just confirms: what you already knew, that you've had your ovaries removed and your body is attempting to stimulate them, which is impossible to do since they're gone. It's a worthless test in you. ...Read more

No 21OH-ase defect: 17 hydroxyprogesterone screens for a congenital condition, congenital adrenal hypertrophy (cah) which can lead to abnormalities of normal cortisol production and excessive adrenal male hormone production. These can present at birth, in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood depending on the nature and severity of the defect. The sensitivity of the baseline test can be increased with acth stimulation. ...Read more

Don't know enough: About your case to be specific. I assume the "a/i" is after syncortropin injection, which is an appropriate response, but only checks your adrenal glands. Cortisol and acth are slightly low but not dangerously so. I would discuss your concerns with your doctor. ...Read more

At this point: you do not need a trigger shot: the progesterone of 8 indicates you already ovulated a few days ago, so the trigger will not do anything useful at this point. Congratulations. ...Read more

How could free testosterone measured by equilibrium dialysis (mayo labs) be over 50% more than calculated free testosterone (issam.Ch)? Data (4/26): tt 533, shbg 41, albumin 4.5, cft 9.7, ft 15

How could free testosterone measured by equilibrium dialysis (mayo labs) be over 50% more than calculated free testosterone (issam.Ch)? Data (4/26): tt 533, shbg 41, albumin 4.5, cft 9.7, ft 15

Lab variation: The calculated free t will depend on how accurately the lab measures each component (total t, shbg, albumin) as well as the algorithm used to do the calculation. The free t by dialysis can be more accurate, as it depends on one test being done correctly. However, labs vary enormously in how well and accurately they can do the test. If the levels are normal, don't fret the details. ...Read more

Laparoscopy 8/3, stage 1 endo. Elevated prolactin levels, parlodel (bromocriptine) 2.5mg 3X week. How long for levels to drop and conceive? Thanks!

Varies: We can not predict exactly how any one person is going to respond to treatment for an elevated Prolactin. Most likely your doctor scheduled you to come back for follow up 4-8 weeks after starting therapy. The follow up Prolactin levels will help guide fertility counseling ...Read more
