My husband was diagnosed of azoospermia. His blood test result reveals thus: FSH 23.4 , LH 11.4 and prolactin 12.5 (all in miu/ml). Can he be treated?

That FSH should be driving spermatogenesis quite robustly, but it can't because of a testicular defect (a number are possible: genetic, toxic, traumatic, etc). He needs to see a fertility doc, and probably have a testicular biopsy. ...Read more

Minimal risk of emph: The range for alpha 1 antitrypsin (A1AT) is < 80 mg/dL, or 0.8 g/L. You are above that threshhold, so the diagnosis can't be confirmed by this test. The heterozygous PI*MZ mutations causes levels 0.8 to 1.9 g/L but carries only minimal risk of emphysema. http://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/pulmonary-disorders/chronic-obstructive-pulmonary-disease-and-related-disorders/alpha-1-antitrypsin-def ...Read more
