    Story of my life...I'm always tired...been a poor/light sleeper my whole life.

    I am a 59 year old female, menopausal, hypothyroid for almost 20yrs (familial...mom and sister also hypo), weight perfect until my mid thirties when I started emotionally overeating...yo-yo'ed for the last 20 years...about 60-70 lbs overweight now. 5' 2", small boned. No uterus...still have my ovaries and cervix.

    On 9/28/11 :

    Vitamin B12. 617. range 254-1320

    Cortisol AM. 14.30. range 3.70-19.40

    My doc said these were both in the normal range.

    ARE THEY????

    Most recent labs from 1/18/12: for blood work

    Estradiol. 17.0 (pg/ml). Range 50-150

    Testosterone total. 18.53 (14.00-76.00 ng/dl). Range 40-80

    Progesterone. 0.3. (0.0-0.2 ng/ml) H Range 1.0-10

    T4 Free. 0.72 (0.76-1.46 ng/dL) L.

    TSH. 2.610 (0.358-3.740 uIU/ mL)

    T3 total. 1.43 (0.70-1.90 ng/mL)

    T3 Free. 4.1 (2.0-4.4 pg/mL)

    I take 90 mg of Armour.

    I take bioedentical estriol,estradiol and progesterone.

    I know my Testosterone sucks...won't take bioedentical testosterone...I get facial cysts...am taking 25 mg 7 keto DHEA when I remember.

    The above labs were done with my GYN who is CW, but open to discussing things with me.

    Today my internist told me I need a sleep study because of my constant exhaustion. I think it's a waste of time.

    I told her I wanted a CRP. She said she couldnt really justify it. My GYN will do the CRP at my next visit (August) if I want to her to.

    Will someone please hack these labs and tell me what you think??
