  • Does anyone have any expierence with pcos? Today, my doctor told me my hormone levels are normal, but REVERSED. I don't know what that means. Any advice or similar experience? He suggested it might be pcos. Help! There is no such thing as NORMAL BUT REVERSE...geez what a quack! Please get a copy of your records and find out exactly what tests were taken and what your numbers are. You can post them and I can get back with you on what he is trying to say... If you have PCOS then your testosterone levels will be too high and your estrogen and progesterone levels will not be high enough...resulting in the facial hair growth. One thing that may help you is FLAX SEEDS, they are estrogenic and should help with some of the symptoms that you are having. Start out with 1 T. twice a day and see how that goes...do that for a month and see how the facial hair thing is... You have to grind them up in a coffee grinder...the ground up ones are not as fresh...and can become stale. A good site with more info is www.soulcysters.com!

  • Thanks!Just got the numbers:lh: 6.3fsh: 4.9prolactin serum: 5.9 testos tot.: 56testos free: 1.1 Hope you can figure something out!Your LH and FSH are both within the normal range but LH is higher than FSH, this is indicative of PCOS and Insulin Resistance. Normally the FSH would be higher than the LH. Hope this helps!

  • Thanks!Just got the numbers:lh: 6.3fsh: 4.9prolactin serum: 5.9 testos tot.: 56testos free: 1.1 Hope you can figure something out! I'm so sorry for not getting back with you. As the other person says it looks like insulin resistance but I would like to see what the ranges were, especially for the testosterone. One thing that you need to focus on is cleansing your liver. The thing that I've found out is that too much estrogen in the body can disrupt EVERYTHING, the entire endocrine system, therefore, you need to focus on getting rid of the excess estrogen. That means STOP using ESTROGENIC substances such as creams, lotions, shampoos, soaps, etc., foods , etc. You may want to pick up The Body Ecology Diet by Donna Gates which explains it in detail. You have to go organic, mostly with meats, and leave the hormonal laden meat alone! Two things help, cleansing the liver with lemos, 1/2 lemon three times a day in hot water, another thing drinking DANDELION tea will also help eliminate the extra estrogen. Find organic dandelion tea or find the ACTUAL HERBS from mountainroseherbs.com and make your own dandelion tea! Also, when you start eating better, focus on getting more FIBER into your diet, that will bind with the excess estrogen and pull it out of the body! This takes time, it is NOT a quick fix but getting rid of the excess estrogen will help stabilize ALL YOUR HORMONES, including the TESTOSTERONE which is wreaking havoc. I'm not affiliated with Donna Gates or Mountain Rose Herbs, these are just two resources that I use and have helped me. I'm three months in and the facial hair and everything is much better, you have to stick with it, once you are two months in it will be easier, but initially IT IS QUITE DIFFICULT TO DO! Good luck!

  • Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) on a column of Radial-Pak C18 cartridge was utilized for the purification of a variety of growth hormone (GH) proteins from mammalian, avian, amphibian and fish pituitary glands. Recovery of GH from pituitary glands of up to 0.43% of total protein was obtained with a high degree of homogeneity as revealed by sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The HPLC-purified GHs show reactions of identity or near identity by immuno-diffusion studies on agar gel.
