Varies: Hormonal diagnosis of menopause is variable especially in the late perimenopausal range. So normal testing really doesn't rule out menopause in these women. Any FSH level over 20 early in the cycle is very suggestive, but many women would still be cycling irregularly with that value. A test over 30 would be fairly definitive.

Don't Rx a lab: Serum creatinine correlates with muscle mass. If you are a slim lady, this is high and needs to be explained. If you are a well-muscled man, it is normal. When i was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.7. Common sense and an understanding of basic biology is more important than treating numbers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
