I had some blood tests back in may and that's what they confirmed. My regular doctor thinks it's PCOS based on my other symptoms but the endocrinologist is not so sure and wants to do several more tests. I don't go back for more bloodwork until monday and those results will probably not be back until a week after that, so it's going to be a while before I get some answers.
Does anyone else have this problem with hormone levels? PCOS is the new favorite problem. He may want an MRI of the thyroid or pituitary to see if it has a tumor. Several things cause "high" testosterone. Then maybe do a ultra-sound of the ovaries. According to my Endo, these are possibilities Late Onset Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia 3.
Adrenal Tumor Good luck getting a diagnosis and treatment! Thanks for the info. My doctor did mention it could be an adrenal or thyroid problem too. I already had an ultrasound done but I don't know the results of that yet. Hopefully they'll be able to tell me something more on Monday when I go in.
I saw your post and wanted to let you know, that a month ago i was diagonsed with the same thing My dr's first response was, she wanted me to take a ct scan with contrast of the abdomen and pelvic area to see if i had an adrenal tumor. I did gain alot of weight over last 2 yrs and prior to that i lost alot as well.
Ariesladi25, thanks for your response I think the CT scan of the adrenal is the next step for me. I was really thinking I had PCOS I have the facial hair thing too but they did an ultrasound of my ovaries and I just got the results back today.
It was normal, so I guess they didn't find any cysts? I'm thinking they're now leaning toward an adrenal problem. They think my hormone levels are what's making it so high. Which of course, just gives me another thing to freak out about. I just want to know what's wrong with me. I know something is wrong if my hormone levels are this high. But I'll have to wait another week or so before I get the results back from my latest bloodwork. Oh well, I've been waiting since April to figure out what's wrong with me By the way, you mentioned you're just seeing a gyno.
I think you should definitely see if your gyno can give you a referral to an endo. That's what mine did. I'll keep you updated. Hopefully they'll figure it out soon!
