hello, my wife tracey who was born in 1964, according to her medical records ,had her last menstrual period in 1997 at the age of 33.she has been plagued by ill health since the birth of our first child in 1987. she then mis-carried at 16 weeks, and our third and last child was born 10 weeks premature.she has been unable to return to work since the birth of our first child.she has seen specialist after specialist,and her chronic condition has always been attributed to Fibromyalgia,although it now appears to me after browsing your site, that it was initially thyroid disfunction mimicking hypothyroidism. she has put on 5 stone in weight over the years despite an excellent low carb diet.in 2009 her lab results came back confirming that she had hypothyroidism.
i believe from information on your site, that she was estrogen dominant, and have had a private saliva test done to establish the status of the progesterone/esradiol ratio.
the result was 'less than 2pg/mL' for progesterone, and 2 pg/mL for estradiol. i am confused as the ratio on the result sheet says progesterone/estradiol ratio is 1-0. can anybody make a comment on the ratio, as it seems odd that the figure zero is included in the calculation.
