If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?

If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?

Not necessarily: A bone age of 1 year behind from 5 years ago could very well have changed by now--could be that the bone age has caught up and now he is a bone age of 12, not 11. Or maybe his bone age is even ahead and he is 13, not 12. You should use his chronological age, 12. And if you are still worried about his height, go see an endocrinologist and have another bone age and workup done. ...Read more

Normal range: Normal testosterone levels for men can vary from 200-1100 so yes its normal. Usually younger men are at higher levels of total and free than this because they are at their prime.

How many cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed each year in age groups UNDER 50 years of age?

My one year old has a level of the T3 (liothyronine) hormona of 1.98 ng/ml. Is that ok?

Depends on lab, and: If you see that result on a test, the lab should give a range for normal values along with it. Labs can have different standards and ranges for normal. What did your doctor say? Also, one time abnormal lab values should be rechecked to confirm. And the meaning of any result also depends on symptoms, history, physical and often the results of other tests. ...Read more

Prolactin of 48.3 cycle day 21, estradiol of less than 25 cycle day 3. 22 year old female. hx of pituitary dwarfism. are those normal levels?

You may have...: a microproctinoma or a large one. I would place you on cabergoline 0.5 mg two times per week to see if your results normalize. Also, many drugs such as Reglan raise prolactin levels. Your prolactin is moderately elevated. I would have other pituitary hormones checked. ...Read more

What's the TSH level to maintain for 57+ female with Hypothyroidism, whose one & half of thyroid glands were removed for goiter surgery 15+ yr back ?

What's the TSH level to maintain for 57+ female with Hypothyroidism, whose one & half of thyroid glands were removed for goiter surgery 15+ yr back ?

Don't base on TSH: I believe it is a mistake to base dosage on TSH alone; TSH is a surprisingly poor marker for tissue thyroid levels in many common conditions; one should assess Free T3 (liothyronine) and Free T4 and also take how the patient is feeling into account. Here are good articles about how 11 renowned specialists optimize thyroid hormone levels: http://tinyurl.com/6gvsxqu Also see http://tinyurl.com/nrww2qg ...Read more

Do teen pregnancy statistics mix the 18-19 yr old adults with the 16-17 year olds?

Do teen pregnancy statistics mix the 18-19 yr old adults with the 16-17 year olds?

Good question: It depends which studies you are looking at. Most will define it as less than 19 years old. By changing the definition though to an earlier age the statistics will obviously change. Most news stories do not usually clarify that. For accurate numbers go to the national campaign to prevent teen pregnancy website. They are a well funded nonpartisan group with accurate information. ...Read more
