I posted on here about a month ago, saying that I was concerned that I’m showing signs of elevtated estrogen levels. I’ve finally got my results from the Doctor and I’ve been told that both my test and estradiol levels are pretty much smack bang in the middle of the ‘normal’ range. I know there’s a lot of criticism of doctors’ readings of hormone levels and their definition of ‘normal’, so I’ll post the various tests results that they gave me, hopefully they will mean more to you guys than me.
Apologies for the amount of tests but it looks like they’ve been quite thorough, if you could give me your informed opinion as to whether my tests do in fact appear ‘normal’, then I would be really grateful.
I realise that as most of you are in the US, your measurements will be different (I think the tests are in millilitres and litres). I think the measure I’ve been given are either in millilitres or litres. Google tells me that 1 millilitre equates to 0.033814 fluid ounces or 0.000264172051242 gallons, I hope that helps!
If you can tell me what you consider to be ‘normal’, I’m more than happy to do the calculations myself.
Thyroid function test- a) Serum free T4 level: 15.0 pmol/l (9.0 - 19.0 = normal according to report)
b) Sereum TSH level: 1.54 mu/L (0.35 - 4.94 = normal)
Serum testosterone test - 16.2 nmol/L (10.0-30.0 = normal range, according to the report)
Serum oestradiol level test - a) Follicular phase: 77-921 pmol/L; (nb. not sure if this is just for reference but Midcycle: 139 -2382 pmol/L)
b) Luteal phase:
Luteal phase: 77- 1145 pmol/L (then I think this is just for reference ‘Postmenopausal (not on HRT): <57 -103 PMOL/l male 40-161’)
- Liver function test:
Serum total protein - 73 g/L (64-83 normal range)
Serum albumin - 42 g/L (35-50 normal range)
Serum bilirubin level - 11 umol/L (3-21 normal)
Alk phos - 67 iu/L (40-150 normal)
ALT/SGPT serum level - 31 iu/L (< 55 normal)
Serum gamma GT level - 26 iu/L (12-64 normal)
Thanks a lot
