Help interpreting hormone results, pls!!! Is this high estrogen???

Iíve been trying to figure out why Iím not feeling right. My doctor told me that I have insulin resistance, which I find odd since I have been on a low carb diet for the last 5-6 months. I have also been exercising most days with the little energy I have. Iím only in my 20s.

I did a saliva test for my female hormones a while back. I havenít had much help interpreting them. I had these tested again by a doc (blood was drawn at 9.30am) and they came back all normal. Can anybody help interpret these. I had the saliva tests done just before I got my period, I think thatís the Luteal phase? These are the results (pmol/L)
Progesterone P4 418.7
Testosterone 184.8 range 25.0 - 190.0
Estradiol E2 41.3
P4/E2 ratio 10.1

Iím not sure what the range is for the other hormones. Does anybody know? Could the insulin resistance be a result of high estrogen, does anybody know the range for this? and how high are my levels?

I should also note that, when I was 18 I became underweight and my period stoped for a while. Iím guessing this has something to do with the symptoms I have?

Any of your opinions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
