Worry re:other risks: First, i presume you mean your chol. Is 230 and LDL 100. The only reason to worry about chol. Is to lower risk of heart disease but your chol. Is not very high and even having normal chol. Does not protect against heart disease. The real cause of heart disease is inflammation.

Hba1c was found 6.1 and vitamin d level was found less than 5ngm/ml. Does taking vitamin d supplements cures my case of being prediabete. Thx?
Vitamin D cure?: Your being pre-diabetic will not be solved by vitamin d supplements. If you have risk factors for diabetes such as obesity, poor diet and lack of exercise, modification of those will be better than taking vitamin d. As your vitamin d2 level is low, supplemental vitamin d is needed and not for the prevention of diabetes. Speak to your physician about your problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

34yo F. Are these normal hormone levels (3rd day of cycle)?: FSH=6.82 mlU/ml; LH=5.24 mlU/ml; PRL=11.14 ng/ml; E2=53.66 pg/ml; Testosterone=0.31 ng/m
Probably not enough!: Most adults need to take about 5000 iu of vit. D3 to achieve optimal levels. However, in spring & summer if you spend time in the midday sun without sunscreen you don't need to take any. In general people don't get toxic unless taking at least 40, 000 iu/day for months, so vit d has a wide margin of safety. I advise taking vit a & k along with d for maximum benefits. Limit a to 5000 iu if pregnant. ...Read more
42yo male, blood test ->higher than normal estradiol levels & GI stool test ->high beta-glucaronidase - what's this mean? Take calcium D glucarate?
Get a consult: Most of this stuff about beta-glucuronidase in the stool comes from "independent medical thinkers" focused on gut flora and isn't mainstream. The scientific papers I've seen come from obscure institutions. And why are you having your estradiol checked? Reference ranges on labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. I'd get a second, mainstream opinion. ...Read more
