Psa is a protein made in the prostate gland that functions to liquefy sperm. It is a serine protease made by both normal and malignant prostate glands. Commonly used as a screening test for prostate cancer, the psa test is widely used to detect which men would benefit from a prostate biopsy as well as detect cancer recurrence in men who have been ...Read more

On levothynxine .025 mcg. Normal thyroid. 433.8urine calcium- 1800 ml urine sample.Bd -0.9rt hip/neck. -0.8 lumbar. -0.4 forearm. Meaning? Recommendat
Questions: http://www.jbc.org/content/28/1/237.full.pdf to better understand that urinary calcium levels vary. It is best to do a creatinine clearance and a 24 hour urinary calcium level. Whoever ordered it should review it with you. The thyroid function is ok so you should stay on that dose. The bone density is more accurate in hips and lumbar spine and should be reviewed with your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the true normal AFP level? The lab ref says <8 ng/ml, but mayo clinic says non-pregnant level 0.2 ng/ml (& peak @32wks to 250 ng/ml).
A subtle key concept: You ask an excellent question. There is no "true normal" alpha-fetoprotein level any more than there is a simple number for "too fat" or "too tall." a reference range is not a "healthy range"; it is merely a range in which most but not all healthy individuals fall. The key is "decision levels" -- what would I do if my AFP was 1.2 ng/ml? I'll bet nothing, unless it was as a recurrent marker. ...Read more
Follow-up endo appt on 3/4, what to ask? Test results-serum testosterone 204, lh-2.5, fsh-6.6, estradiol-18.1, dhea-92.6. Hypothyroid, 5'10", 275lbs.
My tumor markers are PSA 0.73 ng/ml,AFP 6.14 IU/ml, CEA 1.34 ng/ml, CA-19.9 16.62 U/ml. Should I investigate further since my AFP is high?
Why did you test?: You need to give us your medical history as to why you had the tumor markers tested???. Your AFP is slightly raised. It may not have any meaning unless you have liver disease of some kind......so tell us more about you in terms of your medical condition ...Read more

Endo just ordered T3 (liothyronine) today; Cortisol a.m.25.5(6.2-19.4); FSH 169.7(25.8-134.8)-is FSH diagnostic in a post oophorectomy patient?
It just confirms: what you already knew, that you've had your ovaries removed and your body is attempting to stimulate them, which is impossible to do since they're gone. It's a worthless test in you. ...Read more
I'm on Levothy 100mcg-Liothy 50mcg. In addition, my DR wants me to start taking:Tyrosine 500mg, iThroid 6.25mg,selenium 200mcg,zinc 30mg. Is this ok?
Weird stuff: I don't know what your doctor is treating, but I can say that these are very unusual treatments. The mineral supplements are probably harmless, although ineffective (and expensive; is your doctor selling them?); the levo/lioth combo is probably making you hyperthyroid, which will hurt you in the long run, and make you addicted to a daily thyroid rush. See a reputable endocrinologist. ...Read more

Hfsh is mlu / ml., hlh 4.0mlu /ml , prolactin 17.3 ng/ml , progesterone 44.0 nmol/ l. Please what does this mean.
FSH: It would be good to know the actual value of the fsh to interpret all the other information. It would also be important to know what day of your menstrual cycle the tests were done. The only test you reported that can be interpreted is the prolactin because it doesn't depend on the day it was done. That result was normal. ...Read more
My 17 yo son has purchased: Test 600c (testosterone), Tren 75 (Finabolan), Var 10 (Anavar) and d-Anabol 25 (metandesenolone). Dangerous? Pls advise
Yes, very!: If your son has "purchased" these anabolic steroids, in all likelihood, he is not under the management of his physician. Excess T from unsupervised use is very dangerous and can increase risk for heart attack, stroke, mood changes, etc. It can also render men infertile as well as shut down T production. Best to see family doc for evaluation. If he truly has low T, need to find cause first. ...Read more

I need blood levels tested for lh, testosterone, estrogen, psa, cortisol, prolactin, free T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 levels. What test should I ask my dr. For?
Blood tests: Why do you need these tests done? It is rare that one needs to "measure all the hormones". You should not ask your doctor to measure hormones. You should discuss with your doctor what is bothering you, and discuss a plan to diagnose/treat it. If you are this much into hormones, you should be seeing an endocrinologist. ...Read more
60y.o./TSH=10.5/FT4=11.7.Dr. Leila Hashemi on here says they don't add up (lab error) & FT4 is too high. But on my report, the FT4 range is 12-22 pmol?
Different units: Hi. Dr. Hashemi and I are used to different units here in the USA. In our units, she's right. But in your assay, it all fits with you being hypothyroid. ...Read more

High prolactin : A high prolactin can suppress your other hormones and disrupt your normal ovarian function. Your physician might order a X-ray or MRI of your brain and they will possibly start you on some medication to lower your prolactin. These steps, of course, would be useless if you are breast feeding. ...Read more
