    Can anyone interpret labs

    Iím a 38/F not trying to get pregnant but have symptoms of hormonal problems such as fatigue, feeling hot, dizziness, trouble sleeping. I used to have regular periods but now I havenít bled in 75 days. My last 2 periods months ago were very light. My doc ran hormones due to my symptoms but the thing is the normal ranges are huge. Iím thinking my results might not be normal for someone my age? Anyone know?

    TSH 2.550
    Progesterone <.1
    Prolactin 12.4
    ESTradiol 58.4
    LH 27.2
    FSH 25.6

    I have other results but I think those are all the hormone ones. Is this really normal??? Anyone?

    Your lab results should also show the normal ranges. It would be helpful to post those as they vary by lab. But based on my knowledge of having a lot of these hormone tests done, your FSH is high for reproductive / pre-menopausal levels which may be an indication that you are starting perimenopause (the transition to menopause). However, this transition can take many years and FSH can fluctuate between reproductive and menopausal levels during this timeframe.

    Your TSH, although in the normal range may not be optimal. Having your free T3 and free T4 as well as thyroid antibodies checked may provide more info as far as your thyroid's function. Thyroid problems can cause menstrual cycle problems including early menopause or ovarian failure.

    I hope this helps!

    A score of 34 on your FSH level is considered menopausal. So you are obviously moving in that direction. Do you know your family history with regard to menopause? Perhaps early start is normal?
