What is the formula for calculating free testosterone from total t, shbg and albumin? I don't want the online calculator, I want to crunch the numbers

What is the formula for calculating free testosterone from total t, shbg and albumin? I don't want the online calculator, I want to crunch the numbers

Good for you!: The free androgen index is the total testosterone divided by the steroid hormone binding globulin, as a percent (multiply by 100). Be sure you have the right units to do it. Whether this is helpful in managing real people in the real world is for you to decide. I agree it makes little sense, but i'm pleased you're your own person & have chosen medicine. Follow your dream. ...Read more

Labs show a bun of 2, but total protein plasma is high at 8.4. Albumin is 3.8. Feeds are formula and past low bun has been lack of protein. ?

Labs show a bun of 2, but total protein plasma is high at 8.4. Albumin is 3.8. Feeds are formula and past low bun has been lack of protein. ?

Probably ok: Everything has to be taken in context. There are no simple answers. BUN is a waste product of protein metabolism and low level is not necessarily bad . The Albumin level is good and reflects enough protein nutrition. In this case total protein may be high because of high globulins which again may be ok in a 9 yr old. Normal weight and growth is more reliable, + indicative health than lab test. ...Read more

The chemical examination of my urine sample says positive albumin and the microscopical examination says many sperms, what does this mean?

Get evaluated.: The presence of sperms on microscopic analysis of the urine is not necessarily abnormal, & can occur if you gave your sample after recent ejaculation. If you are experiencing problems with ejaculation, get evaluated. More importantly, the presence of Albumin in the urine may be abnormal. Usually, the kidneys prevent such proteins from entering the urine. Followup with your primary care physician. ...Read more

What does an elevated Gloublin of 4.2 mean?? (Normal range is 2.0-4.0) Albumin normal at 3.9 (Normal range is 3.5-5.0).

What does an elevated Gloublin of 4.2 mean??  (Normal range is 2.0-4.0) 
Albumin normal at 3.9 (Normal range is 3.5-5.0).

Probably nothing: This is such a minor elevation, it probably just means you were fighting off a cold or minor infection and the antibodies in your immune system (which are made of globulins) were slightly elevated when you took this test. I would repeat it when you are feeling completely well, and if it is still elevated, discuss further testing with your doctor. ...Read more
