Your hypothyroid not hyper dhea increases in insulin resistance. 2 hour Glucose tolerance test would be next step.DHEA 16.7ng/ml range 1.9-7.6
ACTH <10pg/ml range 0-46
FSH 3mIU/ml range 1-19
E2 23pg/ml range 20-75
TSH 4.03mIU/ml range .5-5.0
Free T4 .85ng/dl range .58-1.64
Testosterone 361ng/dl range 122-534
This test was done, while fasting. My doc didn't test my Free T3, Free Testosterone or LH but at least this time I got adrenals, and e2.
I was diag. hyperthyroid, with several .0X TSH readings a month or two ago. Last test I had a Free Test of 15 on a 9-29.5 scale. (I believe that is bottom 31% of the range.) My total testosterone was 374ng at 10am last time, and is 361ng/dl at ~1pm.. On that scale, total T looks to be fine.?
If something was up with my pituitary, would the DHEA go up higher to try and maintain homeostasis? Could something be masking results, still giving me symptoms? My FSH looks to be pretty low to me!
What's with the "<10" ACTH result?
My family doc wrote "All looks normal" on my blood test, but I sure do not FEEL even close to normal.
