Progesterone Estradiol Thyroid
How are you supposed to work out the progesterone and estradiol ratio to know if your thyroid results are normal?
You do not have to: While the ratio of Progesterone and Estradiol will affect how you feel, it will not substantially affect the thyroid tests. However, oral Estradiol will increase thyroxine binding globulin and thus increase the T4 level but the free T4 will remain stable. Because it will also increase the risk of blood clots it is advisable to use a transdermal, buccal or sublingual form of estrogen replacement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Estradiol is the shortened version of 17 beta estradiol, a naturally occurring sex hormone in the estrogen family. In fact, it is the most active and the most prevalent of the three main Estrogens in reproductive age women. In women, it decreases dramatically after menopause. Estradiol is also present in ...Read more
Are my hormone levels ok? Lh serum-9.7; fsh-7.1; estradiol-991; progesterone-1.9. All done on 12 day of cycle. Thyroid is hyper 3-4 months every year
Not abnormal: These are within normal limits for cd 12 of a normal 28-day cycle, but they might not make sense at all if your cycle is not 28-days. The Estradiol of nearly 1000 is higher than normally expected, but not to worry. These numbers really can't be interpreted in a vacuum, need to know more about your menstrual history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have low cortisol, progesterone, estradiol and melatonin levels, and high testosterone. What could cause this combination of abnormalities?
Glandular dysfunctio: Many people have adrenal fatigue which will lower cortisol levels and associated stress will mess up sleep or melatonin. Ovarian dysfunction is also common at earlier age due to poor diets and chemical toxicity even as early as prenatal. Iodine deficiency may be contributing to same.

I have normal cortisol, progesterone, and estradiol but high testosterone and very high DHEAS (double normal range). I am also a type 1 diabetic and seem to be insulin resistant (hbA1C is 8.2). Could insulin resistance be the cause of elevated DHEAS?
Yes...but: This day in age we are seeing some people with type 1 diabetes and features of insulin resistance, polycystic ovarian syndrome, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes features. This sounds like PCOS, believed to usually be caused concern by insulin resistance. I am also concerned over a high prolactin, thyroid disease, or congenital adrenal hyperplasia and these should be completely checked too. ...Read more
Is it ok to take estradiol if ur young(33)& still have all ur female parts? & is it just like taking progesterone meds?
Does it make sense for progesterone to be .4 and estradiol to be 237 on around day 12-14 of cycle? What is abnormal if anything? What are normal level
8 is probably wrong: Progesterone and estrodiol are reported in different units of measure, nanograms per ml and picograms per ml respectively. To calculate the pg/e2 ratio you have to convert Progesterone to picograms then determine the moles of each then calculate the ratio. So, if your lab result were 4 picograms/ ml estrodiol and 32 nanograms/ml of Progesterone your pg/e2ratio is not 8. ...Read more
Yes: Any of these hormones can be affected by exercise. What matters most is the amount of fat you have in your body, because fat stores estrogen, which can affect the signaling for ovulation in your body, which can really affect the amount of progesterone that would be found on a blood test. ...Read more
