I suggest you take liquid sublingual weekly for 3 months then bi weekly thereafter. Its important to check a level after you cut back to twice a month. Use 1 1/2 dropper and hold it under the tongue for 30 sec. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is a deficiency in vitamin d, hight cortisol and prolactin, too much LDL cholesterol a sign of hypothyroid ? Symptoms dry skin, astheny and low libido

A spot cortisol is of little value except as a screen for addison's which i will assume is ruled out. Your high prolactin and low libido in a man with some serious acne like you're being treated for makes me suspect strongly that you have a prolactinoma. ...Read more
Blood test shows 455 iron binding capacity and 22 vitamin d. Vitamin d2 was less than 4. What could these results mean?
Vitamin B12 level: Can be high for several reasons: 1) you are taking vitamin B12 as a supplement or eating a diet high in b12. 2) your body cannot metabolize B12 so it stays in your blood stream but does not get into your cells where it needs to go for it to work. There are tests to determine if the latter is the case. Treatment would be geared towards getting the B12 to be utilized by the body appropriately. ...Read more

Hba1c comes from a build-up of "glycated hemoglobin" in the red blood cells over their life cycles, about 120 days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
