My daughter has been having hot flashes. She's only 33 years

Resolved Question:

My daughter has been having hot flashes. She's only 33 years old but is panicking that she may be having an early Menopause. She had a blood test by her Primary Care GP, who said that her 'feminine hormones' were elevated at 11.5 when they should only be between 4 and 10.
My daughter asked to be referred to a specialist, and the GP asked did she want to see an Endocrinologist or a Gynaecologist?! How would she know? What should she say?

Hi--do you know which hormone in particular was elevated?

And were other things checked like thyroid function?

And sorry for the delay but your question just now became available to me

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I'm so sorry but no, we don't know which hormone was elevated. The GP only said the 'Female hormone' which is what set off alarm bells for me.

And no, other things weren't checked, like the thyroid function.

We've decided to go and get a consultation from an Endocrinologist. But thank you for your answer.

OK--well she could be starting menopause even at her age but there are other possibilities too and an endocrinologist would be best for her. She also needs her thryoid function tested, her cortisone levels checked and her liver and kidney functions checked
