My doctor is keen on preventative medecine, and as such wants to see ideal numbers, not just in range, which is refreshing.
I have been on levothyroxine about a year, 50mg until 5/4 then 75mg. Doc wants to see TSH around 2. Oddly TSH went back up after upping dosage, but that was only after 1 week of new dosage. Getting tested again in 4 weeks.
I was on red yeast rice for a few months to help with cholesterol. When I went in 5/4 my sex drive and energy were in the shitter. When we saw the cholesterol levels and T levels had dropped a ton decided to stop the red yeast rice, they recovered most of the way after only two weeks.
Test levels are lower than myself and my doc want, but we don’t want to do T replacement therapy at my age, just fix it by fixing rest of system. The DHEA and Pregnenolone are really high, which is odd since those are T precursors. Also, Dihydrotest is really low. LH and FSH are aalso pretty low.
My doc put me on 50mg clomid for 4 weeks to test my pituitary. If the LH and FSH don’t go up then that should indicate a pituitary problem.
Does anyone have any insight on my numbers and why they are how they are?
