What cases hemoglobin level of 10.9 hematocrit levels of 33.9 and RDW level of 15.6 my MCV level is 85
Variety of things.: This is not enough info to be sure, but looks like you have a mild iron deficiency anemia. This is understandable in a menstruating female. Could also be a more complex anemia with underlying thalassemia. Would need to see iron and ferritin and old blood counts to be sure. ...Read more
What cases hemoglobin level of 10.9 hematocrit levels of 33.9 and RDW level of 15.6 my MCV level is 85
Anemia: Microcytic anemia (low mcv) with a high RDW (cells very a lot in size) is most likely associated with anemia from loss of red blood cells. The increased RDW is likely from reticulocytes or new rbc that the body is producing. A full of valuation for this should be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dhea for fertility. I've been one 25mg of dhea for a week. My dheas blood level shows 628 ug/dl. Testosterone levels normal. Is my dhea level too high?
Don't: Dhea doesn't help fertility. Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Dhea is converted to cortisone, estrogen or testosterone, and you can't control which it's made into or how much of each. Plus, your pill probably doesn't contain much actual dhea. Don't play with your health and fertility, consult your doctor. ...Read more
I am 29, what happens if I have a total testosterone level of 188 and a free testosterone level of 5.5?
Day 9 of cycle, how does the level of FSH (6) show the current level of estrogen (23) is adequate in current phase? Is prog (.5) inadequate? Lh (14)?
My FSH level is 9.5, LH level is 7.5 and PROLACTIN level is 2.83 on the 2nd day of my cycle. Are these values normal?
Why tests done?: The normalcy of these results depends on the context in which they were ordered. For example, a 3rd day FSH below 5 would suggest acceptable ovarian reserves; this test is done to assess a woman's fertility. Yours was 2nd day, which is different, but interpreting these results would depend on the clinical context within which they were ordered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Morning cortisol level of 40 ug/dl, TSH is 4.4. On estrace (estradiol) (2mg) for low estrogen. 31 year old female. Is cortisol level cause for concern?
Elevated Cortisol: A cortisol of 40 is high and even though exogenous estrogen is known to slightly elevate serum cortisol levels, a value of 40 needs to be evaluated. Long term corrisol elevation is injurious to your health and may signify an underlying adrenal glandular condition, such as Cushing's syndrome. You should follow up with an endocrinologist soon. ...Read more
During fluid deprivation test, the ADH (vasopressin) level dropped down to 1/3 of pre test level and below reference values. Is that a sign of diabetes insipidus?
Not necessarily: The most important thing to be following in a water deprivation test is the urine and serum osmolality. If the serum osmolality rises above normal, but the urine osmolality does not rise significantly, you have diabetes insipidus. Measuring ADH (vasopressin) levels can be unreliable. ...Read more

What are the optimal levels for testosterone in women? The "normal" range my lab uses is 0.0-2.2. I got a 0.2 (I'm 34). 0.2 looks low, what's optimal?
I received blood results indicating Day 3 LH & FSH levels of 5.1 and 3.75 respectively. Will low FSH and the LH:FSH ratio affect chance of conception?
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

Have your doc check a AM testosterone free and total binding level, on multiple random days to officially determine if you have this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Exercise & lose fat: First, let's clear a common misconception that's used to separate you from your money. There is no dietary supplement that will naturally & safely increase testosterone. In other words, there are no testosterone boosters, at least not in the States. Maybe in India but not here. Instead, get rid of fat that converts T into female hormone.

BTW, units matter. ...Read more

Any level is fine: Women aren't attracted by testosterone level. Nor can they necessarily tell what yours is just by looking at you. Different women look for different things in their partners/friends/mates. Some look for different physical attributes. Others look for non-physical attributes. None of these necessarily correlate w/testosterone so any level should be fine as long as you're reasonably groomed & confide. ...Read more
Hard work!: Seriously! strenuous intense exercise can increase testosterone. Shedding body fat via exercise does this since fat converts testosterone into Estradiol (female hormone) which then shuts down testosterone production. So less body fat allows for more t production. Of course, this is a bit of the chicken & egg conundrum. ...Read more
R u a man or mouse?: Sorry, I couldn't resist. Truth is that interpreting testosterone result depends upon age, gender & even time of day. We also need to know reference range including units (ng/dL vs nmol/L) which varies w/lab. So it's really impossible to answer your question w/so many variables to consider. Finally, we treat patients, not just numbers. Just b/c T=2.65 doesn't require TRT if asymptomatic. ...Read more
Depends: On why it is high. Have your doctor that did the test explain why it is high. ...Read more

Get fat & diabetes: Sorry, not trying to be flippant but it's a bit of a chicken & egg question. Regardless of sex, we've linked obesity to lower t. Diabetes is also linked to low t. Recent study showed that exercising & eating right led to weight loss & boost in t. So if you want to naturally lower yours, do the opposite. But as far as taking a supplement, i'm not aware of any, although some prescription meds help. ...Read more
Look on lab sheet: Ask your doc for original lab result sheet which includes not only your result but also the normal reference range for your specific test & lab (there are several ways to measure T). In actuality, It's very doubtful that 619ng/dL is very low as most labs' normal ranges from 250-1,100. Best to discuss your results w/your family doc. More importantly, why did you get test in first place? ...Read more
Depends: How high is high? Different labs use different equipment to measure. Statistics are also involved in what's considered normal.

Very low: Hi. That's a very low testosterone. Did you go through a normal puberty then lose function, or did normal puberty never occur? Do you or did you take anabolic steroids? Many things are possible to explain this. You should see an endocrinologist for an evaluation. I believe your country is civilized and has nationalized healthcare, so it should be possible to get a top notch evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more
