Please explain blood test results!

I had my hormones tested after being on bio's for 6 months (est,prog,test, all cream form) and these are the results. The pharmacist feels my estradiol is high..and says to raise my testosterone dosage. Is this true? I feel pretty good, but wish I had more energy. She also said my T-4 is not converting into T-3..

Estradiol : 178 (range 19-528)

Progesterone : 16.0 (range: follicular 0.2 - 1.4
luteal 3.3 - 25.6
mid-luteal 4.4 - 28.0
post 0.0 - 0.7)

DHEA : 339 (range 110 - 554)

Free Testosterone : 0.9 (range : 0.0 - 2.2)

TSH : 1940 (range: 0.350 - 5.500)

T-4 : 1.28 (range: 0.61 - 1.76 )

T-3 : 3.0 (range 2.3 - 4.2 )

Any translation would be appreciated!!!

Thank you...

Hi We aren't MD's here, and can't diagnose problems... but, imho, your pharmacist's comment on the testosterone makes sense. Testosterone does tend to give us a little more energy.

I don't have enough experience on thyroid issues to comment on your results except to say that they appear to be in range.

I'd suggest asking your DR what he/she wants you to do with these results.
