Severe gynecomastia --> since age 12
Age 18 --> lost about 50 pounds, gynecomastia still present and also suddenly lost about 50% of pubic hair
Freaking out I went to an endocrinologist who ran every thing there is to run including a PCR (normal XY), full hormone panel- all returned normal and I was discharged. She basically dismissed everything I said.
7 years later, nothing has changed and I decided to repeat labs on my own. I got the following results:
LH 2.76 (0.57-12.07 mIU/ml) FSH: 1.19 (1.37-13.588 mIU/ml) Estradiol: 34 (11-44 pg/ml) Progesterone: 0.3 (<0.1-0.2 ng/ml) Testosterone, Total: 5.29 (1.56-8.77 ng/ml) Testosterone, Free: 14.74 (8.80-27.00 pg/ml)
I have many, many other symptoms of low T.
How can I have CLEAR hypogonadism and yet normal testosterone?
Can I do anything to lower progesterone since that may be the cause of the problem?
Suggestions? By the way, still awaiting new Prolactin and Cortisol.
