HELP, Total Testosterone Levels....


Whats up everyone, I have some questions that I am hoping people on here can help me with....

So, about 2 years ago I started gaining a whole bunch of weight without really knowing why. I went to an endcrologist, and she thought I had Cushing's Syndrome at first, and on the first test I had elevated Cortisal levels, but follow-up tests showed my levels went back to normal and I was fine.

I took a job up in Washington State, and went and had a visit with a new primary doc. He ran some blood tests and here is what he found:

My total Testosterone which the normal range was between 9-49 was 155. While my "attached" testosterone where the normal range is uppose to be 25-75 was 14. My doc said he was surprised because it was REALLY high for total, and usually that means my attached would be high, but in fact its lower than it should be.....

He was concerned, and thought maybe the labs were wrong, so a month later (about a week ago) we redid the blood tests. This time my attached Testoseronme had dropped to 9, and my total (or Free as I think it is called) had soared to 181.

See the thing is I don't feel like I have all the tesosterone running through me, I am not very aggressive, not overly sexual, and don't have hair growing in crazy places....

My doc is PHENOMENAL, but he doesn't know whats happending, and neither do I... Does anyone know what having levels of T 4X what REALLY is going on?

PLEASE, if you have any information or can help right now, I REALLY need it, thanks soo much!!!

Re: HELP, Total Testosterone Levels....

I guess the doc says he thinks it may be Adrenal Cancer, (his exact words were: I am pretty sure of what it is, and we are going to have to fight this agressively)...

Anyone else know anything about Adrenal Cancer, I have spent all night trying to find things on it, and there isn't much, especially connecting it to Testosterone levels...

Anyone know anything??? It would be WONDERFUL to hear from you
