Pegnenolone help

    my preg was tested on Oct 2 and was high 21 nmo1/L range 0.3 - 6.3
    I had been supplementing for 2 months daily with 50mg on the advice of Dr.K.
    However I forgot to stop taking it before the test. Dr. K. and my Doc both thought it was supplement driven.

    I had it retested 2 months later and it is still 21 - and I did stop taking it the day before this test

    So do you think I should have stopped taking for longer before the test? or it is just high and I should stop taking it?
    My progesterone was very low on my first saliva cortisol test at the end of August - it was 7 [range 12-100] and my DHEA was low 2 [2 -23]
    That is why Dr. Kruse suggested DHEA and Pregnenolone and Progesterone

    My last cortisol/saliva test - the progesterone has come up to 43 and DHEA to 2.5

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance

    When I test Dzugan advises me to take all supplements. You might try backing down to 25mg and see where you are at
    You might want to consider supplementing w/DHEA as well.

    Thanks Gretch - I do use Dhea. I am wondering what is happening to all that preg? is it turning into pg? or cortisol? or where is it going? or is it not going anywhere?

    Thanks Gretchen - I finally "asked Jack" he says it is good so I will just go with it - but I really don't understand - my number is so far north of the range....
