tpo- <10 iu/ml 0-34
dhea sulfate 334 ug/dl 80-560
sex hormone binding glob 37 nmol/l 13.0-71.0
t-3 total (true) 103 ng/dl 60-181
tsh 3rd gen 1.587 miu/ml 0.550-4.780
t-4 total 6.2 ugm/dl 4.5-12.0

c reactive protein .024 mg/l .07-4.94
cholesterol!!! yikes: 237! mg/dl 140-200
hdl 49 mg/dl >40
ldl 180!!! mg/dl <130
vldl 8 = low mg/dl 14-35
can anyone take a look and give me their best answers as to how to improve this stuff, or even some advice?
recently started taking in 10,000 ius of d-3 a day, take alive! vitamins, almost every day, have not worked out consistantly for a very long time, and have gone down in weight from a steady 200lbs (i know not all muscle, but not really fat except around stomach ) down to 185-188 just in the past couple months,
any help would be appreciated!
i know ive talked with matrix a lot over the past couple years about going to see the doc out in pen, but cannot afford it, nor can i afford to pay others a bunch of mula, so i am kind of stuck asking for help here, because i know there are a ton of guys who know their $h!T on this forum!

you could try a clomid challenge 25 mgs for 7 days then retest to see where you are at 8 th day to see if you are primary or secondary.
Need free t-3 levels not free t-3 uptake, but may be an indicator for low adrenals or ferritin
Cholesterol is probably due to insulin or thyroid imbalances

matrix, thanks man!
my ferritin levels were at 73 ng/ml 14-179,
I go see my hormonal guy here in a few days, but wanted (was hoping, you would chime in here, and you did!) to have a bit of knowledge about what the possible issues could be from?
i will ask him to test my free t-3, total free t, and i believe he will be having me get blood work for psa, and a few others i was not tested for.
if i take clomid for the 7 day challenge, what is it i should be looking for?

what are your recommended numbers based from?
if i can get some clomid, i will give it a go, but i dont have a source to go to, to obtain this type of stuff,

so all in all it maybe a thyroid issue then? of course both my mom and sister have thyroid issues, but i thought it was more of a girl disease?

Not to scare you, but imrecently learned that what is much more important then the cholesterol numbers is the particle count and particle size. Not many docs check this. Look at my post today.
If you have all large type A buoyant particles then your ok.
