I got my first round of blood tests back. Here are the results and the doctor's comments. Since this was my first visit with him, I want to make sure that what he is saying and recommending is truly best for hair loss. I have had a lot of bad experiences with doctors over the years. I put my comment and questions in parentheses. Thanks for your help! Your estradiol is 41; most women feel best when it is greater than 50. Your progesterone is 0.42; most women feel best when it is greater than 2.0. Your total testosterone is 21; normal levels are 6-82 Your free testosterone is 0.14; it should be below 0.1 to help with hair loss (This surprised me as I am on spironolactone and Diane 35 so I thought the combination would have this under control! Where do you all try and keep your free testosterone levels to help control hair loss?) Your ferritin (iron stores) is 85; it should be 13-300. Your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is 0.0; it should be less than 3.5. Your free T3 is 4.3; it should be between 1.8-4.6. Your free T4 is 1.82; it should be between 0.8-1.8. Your thyroid is severely over active: the lower your TSH, the more thyroid you have in your body. I am going to reduce your Armour thyroid to 90mg. Women can often have hair loss if their thyroid is over active. (This is the one that I have the most questions/hesitations about. I have had a low TSH for years even thought my T3 and T4 are in the proper range. I was told by my doctor that TSH is low when on Armour but what matters is T3 and T4 levels. I am at the top of the range on both. What do you think? I don't want to lower unless I need to because I know going hypo can cause more hair loss! And even if I was going to lower, would you cut it in half? That seems extreme when the T4 and T3 are in range or close.) I will call in a pill that contains estradiol and progesterone. Swallow this every night that you are not menstruating. Oral estradiol is great for hair and helps to lower free testosterone levels. Would you supplement with both estradiol and progesterone. I am 31 and hoping to stop birth control and spironolactone in order to get pregnant. Would I be able to get pregnant on these? Would I ovulate if I am taking it consistently except during my period? Sorry for all the questions...I emailed the Dr as well but am hoping to hear some opinions from people who have been through this too. Thanks!!!! THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!!
