Fsh And Lh Levels In Menopause
High follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) and luteinizing hormone (lh)--what are normal levels at ovulation?
Fsh is a peptide hormone synthesized in the anterior (forward) pituitary gland in both males and females. The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...Read more
Can this be hypopituitairism: high cortisol, highish prolactin, low HGH, lowish TSH, low LH and FSH in luteal phase, (lowish in follicular), low ADH (vasopressin)?
Pituitary: It is difficult to diagnose hypopituitarism vased on labs you provided. High cortisol goes against hypopituitarism. High prolactin can lower FSH and LH.. TSH normal range is 0.3-4.. If pituitary dysfunction is suspected , we check Free T4, not TSH.. I hope this answers your question ...Read more
Are high LH (90 MIU/ML) and FSH (168 MIU/ML) in a post menopausal woman indicative of pituitary disease? (Normal Prolactin, Cortisol (am), TSH)
Fsh level 7.5, LH level 11, progesterone level 2.5, and thyroid level 1.8. Are all these normal? 16th day of cycle. Irregular periods.
Sounds like PCOS: These levels show you have not ovulated by day 16 due to the lower progesterone. Typically throughout the month the fsh is higher than the lh. The lh goes up just before ovulation to trigger the release of the egg. This is what on ovulation predictor kit is checking for. You could be seeing the lh surge just before ovulation which could happen as late as day 20, or it could be high b/c of pcos. ...Read more

Depending on other parameters, you may also benefit from using metformin or some measure to reduce your Insulin levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probably: Normal ranges can vary from lab to lab, so the 1st step would be to compare your results to the reference range, usually listed in parentheses such as (1.5 - 10). For hormone tests, however, results have to be interpreted in the context of what is happening clinically. Expected values for someone who is pregnant, or on birth control pills, or who should be ovulating at the time could all differ. ...Read more
