Optimal Lab markers

    I am fixing to do another draw and will post my last results (8/7/13) below. I have chronic adrenal fatigue and do not go in fasting as it would be 3-4 hours after I get up before the lab opens and I don't think it would even be safe for me to drive.

    I see from this thread http://www.jackkruse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Optimizing-Labs.pdf that I need to add the following:

    > sex hormone BG
    > estradiol
    > IGF-1
    > Free testosterone
    > Total "
    > Progesterone
    > Pregnenolone
    > Estrogen
    > DHEA
    > DHT

    I did not run a Calcitriol this time but it is historically high and the last one was 84.

    Cyrex Array 5: (May '12)

    > Arthritic peptide 1.66 (0.2-1.3)
    > Alpha/beta tubulin 2.80 (0.4-1.4)

    Have not run an ASI in a long time. Last one was a Stage 4. Previous to that Stage 7. Will order from BioHealth to get melatonin reading.

    I've done numerous MetaMetrix gut profiles. Last one I had pinworms but you have to wait 6 months after treatment for a correct reading and have not done that yet.

    Don't know anything about Telomere testing~

    For more historical info, please see initial post on Introductions.

    Thank you to one and all!

    Sorry Jan - I am not good at reading labs ...The values are different in Oz. I do see that your Vit D has to come up...

    If you are still cycling, make sure that you get the labs done between certain days or it will be useless. Go to stopthethyroidmadness.com and check out your thyroid ratios and google the BUN/creatine ratio and see how that is.

    I have a kit on order from BioHealth for the ASI/melatonin. My Vit. D levels are as 'good' as they are from being out in the sun. I do not supplement D due to the high Calcitriol readings.

    I am 61 so not cycling. T3/rT3 = 9.4 and I know it needs to be above 20. Bun/creat. = 20 and that ain't so hot either.

    I really need to know what additional markers to run on my next lab to be JK relevant. I plan on doing a urinary iodine and a serum selenium as well.
