I read the LHJ article and promptly made an appointment with an Endocrinologist. This wonderful doctor made me feel so much better. She ran the following lab tests...Free & Total Testosterone, Fasting Insulin, Glucose, and Lipid Panel. DHEA-Sulfate, Androstenedione, Prolactin, and salivary cortisol levels. I'm a Med Tech and I know what all these tests are and how they relate...EXCEPT for the DHEA-sulfate and the Androstenedione. Could one of the MD's clue me in. I haven't had my follow up visit yet and want to be prepared. Also what Meds are currently used to treat? (rezulin, glucophage, metformin, estrostep??) I would like to look in the PDR before my visit. My labs all seem to fit PCOS... elevate testosterone, and insulin levels etc. Thank you. I'm looking forward to the on-line chat session.
