So, I have posted several times about the fact that I started on all natural supplements November 1, 2008! Overall I feel fantastic! I have a much better quality of life. This is actually why we decided to become distributors for Shaklee; the supplements changed my life. I have not been sick even one day since November 1. I did more blood work about 8 months after starting my vitamin regimen, and it was determined that I was estrogen dominant. They started me on bio-identical progesterone cream and meta IC3, to help balance my hormones.
I went to a local MD who is known to treat with vitamins, my other natural path was long distance, and I thought it couldn't hurt to have someone more natural at home. Anyway, she also ordered a bunch of blood work. I was so excited yesterday when I picked up my blood work results. I quickly glanced to see what was flagged as being out of range. The only thing was my RBC count was a little low, probably due slight anemia. Anyway, it wasn't until late last night that I started to scrutinize the results. I looked closely at the thyroid numbers. Yeah. My TSH is now 1.23, instead of 2.3. My estrogen was better and so was my progesterone. So, I believe I am no longer Estrogen dominant. Well, then I discovered she had them draw for FSH. It was a whopping 60!!!!! OM GOSH!!! Is this really accurate?? I thought you only tested FSH at CD3 for it to be accurate! I do know that at anytime it is not good to be so high. I am really bummed out, but not hopeless. I have read too many post from ladies who have had high FSH and still got PG. I guess I need some of those stories now, or at least some info that you might have to make me feel less of a blow.
The reason the FSH number wasn't flagged, was because it was considered in normal range because of my age. It fell into the category of postmenopausal on the scale. RUDE AWAKENING:(
