    Extremely elevated testosterone?!?!?


    I have just done some Saliva hormone tests with ARL pathology. They are as follows:

    I was shocked when i saw the testosterone how is this possible? Could this have been an error. I always have low testosterone so i dont know what the hell is going on.

    Baseline Hormone + Adrenal Hormone Profile

    Note: I was on nilstat anti-fungals while doing these tests i dont know if that couldve changed the results in anyway.



    Salivary Oestradiol (E2) - 1 pmol/L (Male <10)


    Salivary Testosterone - 900*H pmol/L (15 - 90)


    Salivary DHEA - 4.7 nmol/L
    Time - 0600

    Salivary Cortisol - 5*L nmol/L (6 - 38)
    Time - 0400

    Salivary Cortisol - 27 nmol/L (no reference range noted)
    Time - 1200

    Salivary Cortisol - 6 nmol/L (1 - 12)
    Time - 1800

    Salivary Cortisol - 1 nmol/L
    Time - 2200


    Salivary Cortisol Reference Range Note:
    0600 - 0800 Hrs (5.3 - 61.8 nmol/L)
    1800 - 2000 Hrs (1.2 - 12.3 nmol/L)

    What do you think of these cortisol levels?

    Id say their better than before.

    Last time i had morning cortisol 105.00 (10.00 - 42.00) range, and afternoon cortisol 17.00 (10.00 - 15.00) range.

    Although the low morning cortisol would explain why its absolutely impossible for me to get up at 6-8am where sometimes i feel like a zombie.

    Exactly.

    It pains me to see HRT clinics use these.
