I just found out I have high testosterone levels...I don't know if it's considered really high or just borderline:
Total Testosterone was 52 (normal 2-45)
Testosterone, Free was 7.8 (normal 0.1-6.4)
But I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the cause of this? Do I have PCOS? I just had an ultrasound and it was normal? My periods have been normal since I went off birth control 4 months ago. But my hair has been falling out in clumps, my skin is oily and breaking out horrible, I sweat like a pig. I've also been gaining a lot of weight very quickly even though I follow a strict diet and rarely go above 1300 calories a day and I'm currently 348 pounds. It's extremely frustrating. Doctor says it's simply calories in vs calories out...but I know something has to be wrong. I shouldn't be gaining weight like I am.
I also just found out I have pre-diabetes. Fasting blood sugar was 106 and insulin level was 20. I'm very upset about this.
