Avatar f tn s pelvic exam showed that my ovaries and uterus felt normal-sized. Hormone test revealed I have high testosterone but all my other levels are normal. I have a glucose and insulin test tomorrow AM and an u/s on Wednesday. My doc is leaning towards PCOS but I am skeptical since my other hormone levels were normal. So my question is this: does endo. cause you to have high levels of testosterone?
Avatar f tn Hi there, this is a hormonal problem where you have increased testosterone hormone. You can see your doctor for advice on hormonal treatment. In the mean time use a hair removal product to manage hair growth. This is quite a common problem for women (not all) post menopause.
1314782 tn?1323180585 IGF-1 is the marker for Growth hormone and if that were on the low side then a Growth hormone stimulation test might be more telling. What about your 8 am fasting cortisol levels? a cortisol producing adenoma would cause the low testosterone prolactin levels? ditto Ever had High iron or elevated hemoglobin levels? hemochromatosis ruled out Visual problems?
Avatar m tn Various investigations required are chromosomal studies,hormone studies like Gonadotropins (LH and FSH), Testosterone and DHT levels,thyroid hormone lvels,ultrasonography and testosterone therapy. I would suggest you to consult a urologist and discuss this possibility with him I hope that helps.Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn I heard about gigantism in which people grow upto 8 ft tall, which is because of pituitory gland malfunction, producing too much growth hormone. I recently had Testosterone and thyroid tests done, which came out to be absolutely normal. But no tests were given for Growth Hormone. My concern is if testosterone and thyroid tests suffient to diagnose gigantism?? Is there any relationship between Testosterone, Thyroid and Growth Hormone?? Is my pituitory gland alright? Am I normal?
Avatar m tn As well, Which testosterone? Free, total? Did you have a sex binding hormone test done? All this would be part of a comprehensive androgen check. The thing with hormones that docs seem to fail to remember from their training - is that they work in feedback loops. So if testosterone is low, other things are working overtime high to make up for it or not functioning at all - so the loop is broken. And since the androgen can come form the pit or the adrenals, they need to test you well.

Avatar f tn (male,30) I have a history of low testosterone and low human growth hormone. Didnt have psudo tumor till I started the Growth Hormone treatments. Im thinking this was a very bad side effect. Do Your homework and see more docs. I let em put in a shunt, and havent been well since.
Avatar m tn Various investigations required are chromosomal studies,hormone studies like Gonadotropins (LH and FSH), Testosterone and DHT levels,thyroid hormone lvels, ultrasonography and testosterone therapy. Treatment depends on the cause of microphallus. I would suggest you to consult a urologist and discuss this possibility with him I hope that helps.Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn It sounds like your body is producing more of the testosterone hormone than it should. There should be medications to level your hormones so they are balanced and where they should be.
Avatar m tn Hello, What you seem to be having is called micropenis or microphallus. It can be due to testosterone deficiency, pituitary hormone deficiency, hypergonadotropic hypogonadism and growth hormone deficiency. Various investigations required are chromosomal studies, hormone studies like Gonadotropins (LH and FSH), Testosterone and DHT levels, thyroid hormone lvels, ultrasonography and testosterone therapy. I would suggest you to consult a urologist for this. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

Avatar f tn The high testosterone could be causing the facial hair. Too much male hormone. Is there a decimal point missing in the TSH? Is it 1.97? Do you have a ref. range for bun/creat? A BUN/Creatinine ratio can help your health professional predict which conditions, such as dehydration, may be causing abnormal BUN and Creatinine levels and decreased kidney function. As for the normal values it depends on the age. For infants younger than 1 year the BUN/Creatinine ratio normally reaches up to 1:30.

747152 tn?1240320709 Blood tests show I am low in human growth hormone, insulin growth factor, testosterone and DHEA. My Dr. thinks this is "nothing to worry about" but its quite obvious to me "this nothing to worry about" tumor is reaking havic in my body and causing the hormonal imbalance. My hair continues to thin and I have patches where you can see my scalp. I feel & look HORRIBLE and I'm just not myself, I look in the mirror and wonder who that person is looking back at me....
Avatar f tn How exactly should hair growth that is very severe under chin area be dealt with ?
Avatar n tn s thyroid is down, his cortisone levels low, his testosterone levels low and his growth hormone levels high. Taps of his knee removed up to 500 cc of fluid, but no evidence of anything specifically wrong inside the knee, just that it was being damaged. He looked gaunt and unhealthy. 1. what hormonal problem could be causing these symptoms? 2. Why would joint damage be associated with rapid growth and low testosterone levels?
Avatar n tn There is something called growth hormone you may want to ask if it can still be given in your age group, have you had a bone age xray ?
Avatar m tn Usually hypothyroid stresses other hormone glands which lowers their hormone production. If your testosterone was lowered, you would have less body hair all over, not more, so I doubt that's it.
Avatar n tn I did inform the Doctor I have been tired lately so he ordered blood work to check hormone levels. Turns out my testosterone level is low. Actually looked at my bloodwork records just prior to tumor removal and all hormone levels were WAY OFF - They have all seemed to come back to normal levels with the exception of my testosterone. My surgeon is referring me to a endocrinologist. Working on making an appointment now.
Avatar m tn If a pituitary tumor isn't producing excess hormones and isn't impinging on other arreas of the brain, what point is there in doing surgery?None, probably. However, if, instead of producing excess hormones, the pituitary is producing less than normal levels of hormones, (partial or complete hypopituitarism), the target hormones (e.

Three kinds of exercises are there for increasing the penis size which have proved little benefit. They include jelqing, penis stretching and kegel exercises. Other methods include using penis stretchers or extenders or getting surgery done.
