You should go for an abdominal ultrasound and your hormones FSH,LH and estrogen progesterone should be checked up.

that's my E2
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 13 days ago.

Right . They seems high as well.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
They have already said my testosterone is high that was in Feb then they re did my liver function, serum lipid and serum prolactin last week and my results came back Friday. I can't get an appointment until 3 weeks time. They have recommended putting me on a conception pill to regulate my periods as I have 2/3 periods a month or none at all. I was just wondering why my blood test have come back abnormal and whether I have diabetes and high cholesterol
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I'm just looking for a second opinion really as this has been going on months and none can really solve it
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 13 days ago.

High cholestrol is there . But no tests are there for high blood sugars.

Expert:  Dr Kay replied 13 days ago.

Yes , I think you got best treatment .But only issue is that these problems are stubborn and they stick to you for many months.

Expert:  Dr Kay replied 13 days ago.

Or years. you need to be patient.
