Test Results

Test results:

Thyroid peroxidase ABS: 160 (normal limits between 0.0 and 34.0)
Vitamin D (total) : 30 (normal limits between 30-10)

Free cortisol rhythm:
6a-8a: depressed
11a-1p: normal
4p-5p: normal
10p-12a: elevated

Cortisol load: 26nM (normal limits between 23-42nM) – low values indicate adrenal deterioration. An elevated morning/night free cortisol value may be associated with insomnia, and caused by a stress response to an emotional or mental situation, nocturnal hypoglycemia or chronic pain and overt/hidden inflammation.

* Consider dietary modifications and glycemic control to include insulin friendly carbohydrate-to-protein balance
* Consider the use of anti-inflammatories
* Consider balancing the sympathetic/parasympathetic systems using established techniques, examples: meditation and Tai Chi or heart rate variability coherence.

Hormone Panel:
Uterine Proliferation Index: potentially proliferative. Normal estrogenic activity is not counteracted by sufficient amounts of progesterone resulting in a relatively proliferative environment. This state favors: mild target proliferation (endometrial thickening, uterine bleeding, fibroids, infertility, etc.); somatic mild increase in body fat deposition, eight gain and water retention; nervous system dysfunction which includes cognitive changes, headaches, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, and depression with mood swings.
Androstenedione: 119 – borderline low
17-OH Progesterone: 16 – depressed
