Blood Work Results. Hormone Levels Abnormal?


#1


Got a blood test a while ago and I’ve always felt uneasy about the results and wanted you guy’s opinion on it. Especially my estradiol and free test.
I was on a cut and a bit sick when u did it tho.
Do I have any hormonal imbalances ? Should I see an endo ?

You tested positive for cold sores and most on the planet have that virus.

Thyroid is better with fT3 and fT4 testes that are direct measurements and uptake and indexes are rather obsolete.

You can get a really good measure of overall thyroid function via last paragraph in this post.

E2=35 is a big problem. E2 is from FT–>E2 and because FT is low, your E2 production rates are low. So we then suspect impaired liver clearance of E2. Liver tests AST/ALT can be useful. E2 clearance can be reduced by some medications or a liver condition.

It is strange to test FT and not TT.
When FT is low, we need to test LH/FSH to see if the problem is the testes or the pituitary. If LH/FSH are low, test prolactin to see if that may be a cause.

Immune system can have some odd lab results when you are or have been sick, that is normal.

We need a lot more info.

  • finding a TRT doc

Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.

Your total cholesterol is dangerously low.

You need to try to increase cholesterol.

I’m 19 and I started getting anxious when I lacked any vascularity during my cut even tho I’m strong and the fact that I carry a ton of fat in my legs ass and hips only like a female while lean upper. I heard this fat deposits is associated with high estrogen and low testosterone. So I did a blood test. Also are my hips abnormally wide and shoulders narrow and my arms curves in then out like females. Instead of straight down ? Or it’s all in my head. Considering you’re finding things wrong with my hormones , do u recommend an endo as the next step, if yes what should I ask for from him ?

Vascularity come with time. There is a lot of variety in how our genes put us together. You look quite decent the way that you are.

Please read the first two stickies and see if you recognize some things that may apply to you.


#6

I don’t see much that apply except my pear shape (female fat deposits) @KSman


#7

I did raise a lot of other points that could be worth your attention.

You do need to lower E2.


#8

So you think it’s worth it to bring it up to an endo ? B/c my current doc
said it was fine even tho it clearly isn’t. @ksman

Have you read those stickies?

Post oral body temperatures.

Have you been using gear?

There is a finding a TRT doc sticky. Endo’s typically are useless.
