I was thinking about
you and I decided to long on. I guess I missed what happened, because you said that your thread is locked. :(
Can you tell me what happened?
Also, I've read that low thyroid function can have something to do with low testosterone levels too. For example, some men start loosing their body hair, because of low thyroid function affect on testosterone levels. When one hormone level goes too high another lowers....or when one hormone levels lowers another hormone makes up for that hormone and produce more of it's own. It's seems that thyroid function has the ability to throw anything off balance...and since no person is exactly the same we aren't affected the same, because some people have no affects even though their levels are off balance.
Some women with my same hormone level results have endometriosis...I don't. My obvious affects was/is my skin, hair, and mood.
Also, less than a year ago I didn't know that the thyroid produced hormones, and that it was important to the endo system. When it's off something else is off...or almost everything is off. Some women that was told and believed that that had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)only had low thyroid function, and after treatment they were able to get pregnant.
I guess if a doc would have looked into my symptoms more they would have said that I have PCOS too.
Why do you feel the they need to test your testosterone level again?
Orion, I believe that Armour Thyroid and my supplements is all that I need. I'm glad that I stopped taking hydrocortisone. Those signs that I had was telling me that my body didn't need that much anymore. I don't even sleep during the day anymore...and when I stopped taking it I wasn't sleeping during the day either, but I do burn out at night when I'm supposed to. I don't have to force myself to sleep at night. LOL That's ok...it just means that I'm getting back on track.
Orion, I think that you can benefit from using Wild Yam Cream to help balance your hormones while docs figure things out. I'm loving the stuff. It's better than ProGest, because it's light not heavy...so it going in to my skin much quiker. I'm using it on my face and wrist right now...the want you switch up. I will use it for the rest of my life....why not.
Men an women use it.www.americasnutrition.com/wilyamprogcr.html
