I have elevated prolactin, not due to pituitary tumor, will cabergoline enable thyroid and estrogen/progesterone ratio to all become balanced?

I have elevated prolactin, not due to pituitary tumor, will
cabergoline enable thyroid and estrogen/progesterone ratio
to all become balanced?

Probably: High prolactin can result from certain medications, narcotics, stress, as well as from pituitary tumors that are too small to see on imaging studies. High prolactin will cause female pituitary hormone levels to become abnormal, resulting in irregular periods or loss of periods. Cabergoline will lower prolactin and improve this imbalance. High prolactin does not typically cause abnormal thyroid. ...Read more

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

How to make eosinophil level normal in urine during pregnancy? and bacteria level lower?

How to make eosinophil level normal in urine during pregnancy? and bacteria level lower?

Eosinophils: There is no eosinophil testing of urine so I have no clue as to what you are looking at. The bacteria in urine must be evaluated with the following questions asked: 1. Was the urine collected properly with cleansing of the body around the urethra? If not, then bacteria on the skin can cause false results on the urine. 2. Was the specimen processed immediately after the urine collection? ...Read more

YES: Early Hashimotos THYROIDITIS can result in elevated thyroid hormone levels and later on as the organ gets replaced by inflammatory tissue the thyroid function can fall! SYMPTOMS however do NOT necessarily reflect the laboratory findings. A CLINICAL evaluation by a Board Certified Endocrinologist is advised! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

Can having hep c cause the level of alcohol in your urine to be higher than normal?

Can having hep c cause the level of alcohol in your urine to be higher than normal?

Not generally: However, if hepatitis C is in its later stages where it is causing significant damage to the liver's ability to metabolize alcohol, alcohol levels may remain higher than they usually would be. But in most people, it will not make much of a difference. Very little alcohol is excreted in urine, particularly in experienced drinkers. What is now measured are metabolites like ethyl glucuronide (Et-G) ...Read more

Due to thyca can you have low TSH and high tg? Or if tg increases does the tsh?

Due to thyca can you have low TSH and high tg? Or if tg increases does the tsh?

Low TSH unlikely: Thyroid cancer usually does not cause a low TSH (unless you are taking thyroid hormone). Most thyroid cancers do not function as well as normal thyroid tissue. Elevated thyroglobulin is a nonspecific finding, seen in most disorders of the thyroid. It can serve as a tumor marker for recurrent thyroid cancer as long as the thyroid has been completely removed. High tg has nothing to do with tsh. ...Read more

Symptoms of both hyper and hypo thyroid for some time now. Tsh has risen from 0.6 to 2.1 in 2yrs. Free T4 is 12. Normal to increase? Follow up tests?

Symptoms of both hyper and hypo thyroid for some time now. Tsh has risen from 0.6 to 2.1 in 2yrs. Free T4 is 12. Normal to increase? Follow up tests?

Abnormal thyroid tes: The lab values that you have submitted appear to be an error. The TSH test appear to be in normal range but the free T4 appears to be 10 times the normal value. Are you sure this is not the total T4? In that case your labs are normal and a total T4 elevation would indicate use of birth control pills, which can raise total T4. I would repeat these tests first and if confirmed, look in the pituitary ...Read more

Oxygen and walking.: If there is not enough oxygen getting to your brain because you have too little oxygen in your blood then yes it will be difficult to walk at all, much less in a straight line.

I suggest providing more detail and asking again, as well as discussing with your MD ...Read more
