missmary Posted July 12, 2012 Share Posted July 12, 2012 I posted this in my log, but thought it might get some more responses with a catchy title and some specific questions. BLOODWORK Testing was done a few days before the "official" start of my W30--so this reflects my previous gluten free/dairy free but legume and brown rice consuming lifestyle. I've been on 30mg of Armour Thyroid daily for a couple years, so Thyroid numbers should reflect that. Ditto Vitamin D supplementation--I take 2000 IU daily or that number would be much lower, I'm sure. reference range in parenthesis after my result. HORMONES Estradiol 70 (56-214) Progesterone 6.5 (3.4-25.6) Lutropin (LH) 6.9 (0.5-16.9) Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) 5.3 (1.5-9.1) Percent Testosterone Free 2.1 (1-3.8) Testosterone Total 16 (8-60) Testosterone Free 0.3 (0.1-1.5) Cortisol (serum, am) 11.7 (4-22)--shouldn't this be way higher first thing in the morning? DHEA 83 (35-430)--shouldn't this be way higher too? THYROID Free T4 1.06 (0.7-1.85) Free T3 2.7 (2.3-4.2)--shouldn't this be closer to the top of the range, considering I'm supplementing it? TSH 2.4 (0.4-5) Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody <10 (<35) Iodine 36 (40-92)--hello, I think this is pretty low. what can I do about that? LIPIDS--YAY, I think these are pretty good, actually (am I right about that?). Cholesterol (total) 199 (0-200) HDL 62 (50-110) LDL 127 (0-129) (uh oh, this is the "bad" cholesterol, right?) VLDL 10 (0-30) Cholesterol/HDL Ratio 3 (0-5) Triglycerides 52 (0-150) Insulin <2 (0-20)--what the heck? this was fasted/8am. hmm, maybe this is ok? CRP Inflammation 9.4 (0-8)--high, right? I was recovering from a knee thing, but not really "sick" at testing Vitamin D 44 (30-75)--would it be better if I got this number up a bit? Hemoglobin 12.8 (11.7-15.7) I'll be reviewing these numbers with both my Dr and my trainer, and I know it's not really possible to practice medicine over the internets, lol, just curious for any insights.
