DHEA,s 492 (88.9-427) = 120% (HIGH)
DHEA 510 (31-701) = 71% (interesting)
Progesterone 1.1 (0.2-1.4) = 75% (interesting)
Androstenedione 81 (44-186) = 26% (LOWISH)
Serum Testosterone 294 (24-836) = 7% (LOWISH)
Free Testosterone 8.7 (8.7-25.1) = 0% (LOW)
Estrone 63 (12-72) = 85% (HIGHISH)
LH 6.2 (1.7-8.6) = 85% (HIGHISH)
FSH 5.9 (1.5-12.4) = 40%
SHBG 31.1 (14.5-48.4) = 48%
Cortisol 13 (2.3-19.4) = 62%
TSH 2.0 (0.45-4.5) = 38%
Other labs (liver, renal, etc) all perfect.
These results have been confirmed and they are always consistent on repeated blood tests (20 different tests, over several years).
50mg Toprol XL
50mcg Levoxyl (T4)
NO TRT at all. Last time I had a T injection was March 2007. So these lab results are good.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (antibodies in remission thanks to 100mcg selenium)
PSVT (300 beats per minute heart rate, if I skip my toprol xl)
Previous orthostatic hypertension, possibly due to sudden and extreme changes after going off T.
Anxiety possibly due to TRT / amygdala / HPA axis / adrenal issues from going off T.
When I am on TRT, my DHEA and DHEA,s remain above 5000% above the normal reference range.
I've had every test known to man, CT's MRI's (head to toe), blood work, poison, mold tests, everything. Even obscure blood work like enzymes, adrenal antibodies, catecholemines, etc.
I've been a patient at the Mayo clinic and been to just about every endo in Arizona. I even consulted with Dr. Crisler a couple years ago. Nobody can figure out what the heck is wrong with me.
I'm at my whit's end. I thought it was just something like 3BHSD not converting andro to testosterone. But now I remember that my DHEA and DHEAs are all messed up.
I know that DHEA,s is converted to DHEA mainly by peripheral tissues and target organs. I know that andro is converted to testosterone by peripheral tissues (mainly by 3BHSD in the forehead and the upper back).
So I wonder, is something killing my enzymes are something? WTH!!!
$10,000 cash prize to the genius who solves this and puts me back together, without causing my orthostatic hypertention or HPA/anxiety problems to come back. Seriously.
I know I could just take T injections, Lexapro, fludrocortisone, cortisol, more metoprolol and all that crap... but my goal is to find and fix the problem. The fewer drugs, the better.
