hes 18, fatigue and depression
LH- 5.1 mIU/mL (range- 0.5 - 5.3)
FSH- 8.3 mIU/mL (range- 1.4 - 18.1)
Hemogoblin A1c- 4.9 % (range- 4.8 - 5.9)
Testosterone, Serum- 494 ng/dl (range- 241 - 827)
Testosterone, Free, Direct- 11.3 pg/mL (range- there isnt a range here, but i searched on the internet and I found a range... 16 - 33 pg/ml. That would mean I'm low on free test)
Prolactin- 20.1 ng/mL (range- 2.1 - 17....its alittle high)

I AM Not a Dr.
LH is high - could be indication of Primary.
T is probably low for an 18 yr old, but not so low that I would be initiing TRT.
Prolactin level is not that high. I believe if you had a microadenoma or similar that was affecting prolcatiin, it would be thru the roof - like 100-200.
Need more testing...
Thyroid and/or Adrenal problems could exist.
I would start there and throw in an ultra sensitive E2 test.
Most important, find a good Dr.
If this is all the tets the Dr. ran and based on this isn't going to run more, then it's time for a new Dr.

Dr John, while he was on this board, was for some reason was always arguing when I brought up high prolactin issue. I am not a doctor, so my opinion is not educated. But I make following three obserwations.
1. Prolactin test wary greatly
2. Dr Shippen (supposedly) likes it below 3
3. LEF likes it below 5, and is rather forceful about it.

I guess it depends on outlook. My health program focuses on the big three - diet, exercise and rest. Other than that, I want to keep it simple- I don't want to spend thousands on lab tests; I don't want to take a lot of nutraceuticals and prescription drugs, etc. So when Dr. John says not to be too worried about fluctuations in prolaction level, that works for me.
Someone who wants to devote a lot of time and money optimizing each and every one of their lab values would probably not be satisfied by this approach.
Also, while Dr. Delgado obviously has great expertise in this area, I, personally, would give greater weight to the opinion of a practicing physiscian.

Your success will be based on your level of commitment in following the recommendations and advice of Dr. Delgado. Our goal is to guide you to optimum function.
Our services concentrate on 3 areas; Consultation, Testing and Coaching:
1) INITIAL Consultation Your investment toward your health for the initial consultation will include a detailed history, evaluation of former tests, supplement intake, diet, exercise, sleep habits and assessing your goals. The coaching plan evaluation is more detailed than the highly acclaimed wellness survey which is stored at our website Ultimate Medical Research under the section (Wellness Survey). It will provide feedback and suggestions regarding products and required reading specific for your needs.
After you complete the requested information we will evaluate it and give you suggestions in diet, exercise, lifestyle modification and supplementation. We will advise you on the areas we feel relate to your immediate and long-term needs. These are the areas you need additional help that will be of tremendous importance through one-on-one coaching.

“Dr. Delgado zeros in on available methods…to become younger, healthier, slimmer more focused and more powerful – I recommend his readings and program”

I could be incorrect, but I believe he is doctoral scientist who works under the supervision of a medical doctor.
I hope I didn't create the impression that I think that Dr. Delgado is unqualified to give an informed opinion on the question -- I don't think there is any question that he is.
I think I said that, given my own bias, I would give greater weight to Dr. John's view than Dr. Delgado's.

If I were interested in a complicated high-dollar approach to anti-aging, Delgado would be at or near the top of my list.

I have alot of plumber/electricians within my circle, and it is common knowledge amoungst them that rule #1 is to never listen or read to anything the engineer tells or gives you
"engineer blueprints make good napkins at lunch time"
08-10-2007, 02:59 PM
08-10-2007, 03:10 PM
But I think a plumber or an electrician would be the first to laugh in your face if you told them you thought you could learn how to be a plumber or an electrical contractor just by reading web pages.

Also it is not a first time when people or doctors may have different opinions.
What I would like to see is few people that reported their prolactin level within range but in double digits would get Dostinex give it a try and report results.
After all we are talking important stuff:
1. stopping excretion of fluid/milk from nipples
2. shorter refractory time, more frequent orgasms
this must be worth some effort.
I am not sure if any of Dr Delgado's supplemnts contain Dostinex or it have to be bought separately.
On the other board I used to see Dostinex being sold by advertisers.
Little pricey, $199 for 30mL of 0.25mg/mL
15 doses, would last one week.
There must be another, less expensive source.
08-10-2007, 04:27 PM
But I still think it is pointless to get too upset about an isolated borderline value, given the the fact that prolactin level is so labile.
