    Some info HoneyChild posted in my Journal:

    "I still haven't had confirmation that I've calculated this correctly but I think your BUN/creatinine ratio is 18.77

    S UREA 5.7 mmol/L (3.0-7.5) = 15.96 (BUN)
    S CREAT. 75 umol/L (60-110) = 0.85

    15.96/0.85 = 18.77


    If this is correct then you're dehydrated as your result is above 15."


    "RDW 14.4 (11-17)

    "Red cell distribution width or RDW is a parameter that measures variation in red blood cell size or red blood cell volume. A high RDW (over 14.5%) means that the red blood cells vary a lot in size. A normal RDW is 11.6 to 14.6%, but researchers from the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute found that patients with a RDW level greater than or equal to 12.9% had an increased risk for depression."


    This can be caused by deficiencies in b12, folate, iron, selenium, vitamin E and possibly some other things."

    Hi ozbuck.....Looks like...... low HDL indicates a leaky gut, overall cholesterol a bit low....need to implement Leaky Gut Prescription....Epi paleo...mind light cycles, seasonal eating...all the stuff that is reiterated on this site.....
    Your Bun/Creat ratio isn't perfect ( but not above the 20 top limit).
    No rT3 ?.
    Yr T4 is above ref range ..don't know implications of that
    Your Free T3 looks good and so is yr fasting BG.
    Vit D level is great.
    Hscrp...JK likes it to be below 1...not bad at all......
    The cortisol tests......6am ok.......12md...too high...(above ref range).6pm...too high(above ref) 8pm(why not 10pm?) at top limit.....don't know more...but the daily curve should start high and gradually lower through the day ..to low nocte..seems like you're making too much cortisol....what do you do?
    My 2 cents worth...:eek:

    Hi Jude, Thanks for your thoughts.

    low HDL/leaky gut: I was on a candida diet for a year and then GAPS for a while. I think I've done some good gut healing in the past. I'll look into Jacks gut healing ideas.

    No rt3 unfortunately.

    Too much cortisol, what do I do? hahaha... I don't know what is going on. Maybe I'm just too much of a stress head? Maybe its psychologically based? My doctor also thinks I might have the condition of Pyroluria (under absorb b6 and zinc) which could be causing an internal stress so she has got me under better doses of those vitamins as well as biotin as well.

    Thanks again Jude.

    Thought you may be a fitness go getter!.....that apparently can cause this kind of problem. Think your high cortisol pattern is described as a classic pregnenolone steal syndrome...more research!
    The Heal your hormones bootcamp with Dr T Jackson would be good for you ...good info on Rx of leaky gut ..talks about adaptogens to help and the nasty viruses, bacteria etc that need to be addressed before good hormonal balance can be achieved. All the best.
