Hi ladies, I had labs drawn last week and recieved results from the endo today... he said everything is perfectly normal. AS follows: Total Iron 194 (normal 40-175) but i had drank a lot of guinness a few days prior Total iron blood count 352 (normal 250-450) TSH 1.22 (normal 0.40-4.50) Prolactin 4.8 (normal 3.0-30.0) DHEA 84 (normal 45-320) Testosterone 52 (normal 20-76) Progesterone 63 (normal 185 or less) So he pretty much told me I was fine, no PCOS, and maybe to see a derm, I explained to him I already did this and the derm told me it was genetic even after I told him NONE of the wome on either side of my family have lost hair, even into their late 80s and 90s, the ONLY woman who lost hair is my sis w/PCOS. I know my sis also has had normal lab results... I really wonder if it could still be PCOS? The endo also said it could possibly be related to stress, of course I questioned this as I haven't had a major surgery or trauma, and he replied that chronic severe stress can cause hair loss, this I did have, I called it nursing school. I appreciate his honesty but I am no closer to an answer, so it's frustrating I wonder if it's PCOS or diffuse Alopecia Areata as my part isn't wide but my top is THIN. For now I'll continue with my regimen and wait til I can scrounge up the dough for an appt w/ Dr Redmond in Manhattan. Any advice, comments etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
