    From wikipedia: Osteocalcin is secreted solely by osteoblasts and thought to play a role in the body's metabolic regulation and is pro-osteoblastic, or bone-building, by nature.[3] It is also implicated in bone mineralization and calcium ion homeostasis. Osteocalcin acts as a hormone in the body, causing beta cells in the pancreas to release more insulin, and at the same time directing fat cells to release the hormone adiponectin, which increases sensitivity to insulin.[3]

    Your iron looks high, you have a leaky gut (cholesterol numbers) and OMG...do something about your vitamin D level fast. I'll let others with more experience talk about thyroid function.

    As Kathylu said, your cholesterol is bad due to your low hdl and trigs. Those numbers should be reversed. Probably pregnenolone steal going on. Your trigs are that of a carb eating person from what I know. Your D is extremely low - take D3 10000 plus K2 with a mk4 subfraction and A. They all work synergistically. Read Dr. K's blog on supplements. Your FT3 is too low. Looks like your testosterone is high for a female but don't quote me on that one. Was your CRP a highly sensitive one? It is very high too. You have a lot of inflammation going on. I don't see an RT3; did you get one? I am betting it is high too. You are probably not converting T4 to T3 but to RT3 instead. I would think you don't have an amazing amount of energy either.

    Are you doing CT? Eating a lot of coconut oil? Upping your 03's and laying off the 06's? Staying off of carbs? Following the circadian rhythm and getting good sleep? These things will go along way to help you with those numbers. It doesn't happen overnight but it does happen. Good luck on your journey Joann.

    Vitamin D real low, your cholesterol might be high b/c of your weight loss yet I wouldn't like the combination of high LDL, low HDL, high triglycerides and real high hs CRP.... that doesn't sound like a good combination. Yes to leaky gut.

    Osteocalcin is a measure to assess bone formation status..... haven't found any ranges for that except for "in the teens". I'm pretty sure this one depends on your history and whether you have osteoporosis or are at danger of it. I think K2 gets it higher for more bone building.

    good advice here... one question where in your cycle were you when you tested...that can help us take a better look at your sex hormones...

    Shijin I looked at your labs, has doc said anything about high T and dhea???

    my gyn checks my t since I complain about hair in the wrong places. was that

    correct your dhea is 1000?
  9. Shijin13

    Shijin13 Guest

    The High DHEA is a result of supplementing. I think Dzugan wanted to get not my pregnenolone & DHEA up so we could start to address pregnelone steal. T might also be high from CT as well. I have PCOS so I've always had high T along w/estrogen dominance.

    Yes, they expect older people to lose more bone, hence the higher limit.

    Same Mayo article: "Osteocalcin levels are increased in metabolic bone diseases with increased bone or osteoid formation including osteoporosis, osteomalacia, rickets, hyperparathyroidism, renal osteodystrophy, thyrotoxicosis, and in individuals with fractures, acromegaly, and bone metastasis."

    Anyone know about Alkaline Phosphatase?

    Just had a blood test from gyn which was over range. 33-130 mine is 137 from Quest labs

    Previous test in June was 131 but range was 25-165 from Labcorp

    doc had me come in for abnormal test....freaked me out. but then said to redo in 3 months ????. thinking it something with liver. wondering if antibiotics could have something to do with Alkaline Phosphatase....2 months ago.

    Thanks from a nervous wreck

    Don't hold me to it but think if its high could indicate Hashi's.

    PM saliva should be bottom of the range, yours is over the range. AM should be top of the range, so 7.5 is OK, but not optimal.
