What should I be doing to correct this?
Hi Wray, I had some blood work done as well as an expanded female hormone panel test. I am waiting on the results of the hormone test but the blood work came back with High Thyroid, TSH (4.7) as well as High Cholesterol.
The test also states that I have an "Increased risk for diabetes". If this is any indication of what the hormone test will reveal, I'm pretty certain that I'm lacking progesterone. I've always had the feeling that I was somewhat insulin resistant as well as having thyroid issues. My doctor put me on a couple all natural supplements, Bio-Glycozyme Forte (for reactive hypoglycemia) and GTA (for thyroid dysfunction).
I'm 24 years old, am of short stature and weigh about 90lbs. I suffer from anxiety/panic, acne, hirsutism and realize that I'm at risk for PCOS (my sister and mother have this).
I'm wondering what your suggestions are as to what my plan of action should be to start correcting (or controlling) this as early as possible. I'm really wanting to go on Progesterone and am wondering what my daily dose should be. I purchased the Emerita single use packets (before stumbling on your cream) but have not used them yet since I'm really not sure how much I should use and when. I'm also interested in changing my diet to better suit my needs but have no idea where to begin.
I'd appreciate any and all your help and suggestions.
