Hi, I’ll start with my symptoms:
Low energy ( also intolerance to excersise, if i try to workout for the next couple days I’m paralysed with fatigue)
Feeling the cold easily ( although I always have done)
I also have a lot of fat around my abs, love handle area and thighs. Which I never used to have even if I wasn’t working out, I’ve always naturally been muscular and lean.
My blood work:
Serum total 25-oh vit d 84 (75-200)
Serum albumin 45 (35-50)
Testosterone 16.2 (8-26.1)
Free test 0.335 (0.17-0.59
Sex hormone binding glob 34.9 (17.3-65.8)
Prolactin 596 (45-375)
Ferritin 60 (15-300)
Oestradiol 100 (0-145)
Cortisol 758 (140-690)
Tsh 2.1 (0.35-5)
Creatinine 108 (64-104)
Urea 9.4 (2.5-7.8)
Gfr >60 (60-99)
The doctor said creatinine and urea were probably high from supplements, I think I was using creatine at the time.
I’ve tried a high dose of iodine as suggested by ksman and this didn’t ease any of my symptoms. I’ve also checked morning and afternoon body temps which were ok but I will do them again.
The doctors/endo won’t help me out because they say prolactin isnt high enough to be a prolactinoma and I look fit and healthy.
Any help is much appreciated!
Edit: I was wondering if overtraining could be the cause as the doctor said prolactin can act like a stress hormone and excessive excersise could increase prolactin. Especially as cortisol was high as well.
