Hey guys, I’ve been going through a life transformation, trying to optimize every aspect of my life. I’m experiencing severe adrenal fatigue, poor memory, terrible mood swings, irritability, ADHD symptoms, depression, and more. I’ve investigated the thyroid, adrenals, signs of inflammation, and now the hormones. Here is where things get scary.
Pregnenolone: 168 ng/dL (04/21/14)
DHEA Sulfate: 392 ug/dL (04/21/14) : 34 - 569
17 Hydroxyprogesterone.: 153 ng/dL (04/21/14)
Androstenedione: 71 ng/dL (04/21/14)
Estradiol Lvl: (H) 237 pg/mL (04/21/14)
Progesterone Level - In House: 0.42 ng/mL (04/21/14)
Cortisol Lvl: (L) 4.4 ug/dL (04/21/14) : 5.0 - 25.0
Testosterone Total-FREET: 396 ng/dL (04/21/14)
Testosterone Free-FREET: 68.4 pg/mL (04/21/14)
Other things you should know, is that my Reverse T3 is elevated at 36, my Ferritin was elevated at 333, and I’m positive for the MTHFR mutation.
I’m hoping the range for that lab was something different than the standard 11-50 estradiol, but regardless, even they say it’s high. I am 6’2 and 180 lbs, 25 years old. I used to be a solid 250 lbs when I was 19-20 and competing in strongman. I can’t lift seriously right now, when I go into the gym and try I feel like fainting. I have always been completely natural, but I did use SSRI anti-depressants for a long period of time.
I’m seeing an endocrinologist in a few weeks, but I really want to be armed with some quality information before I go in there. Has anyone ever seen an estradiol level like this before? Should I be worried?
