All results are highlighted in bold. Essentially, my DHEA-S were abnormally high. Follicle stimulating hormone looks unusually low for a male in his early 20s. Growth hormone seems a little low. But its very hard to know what a normal level is and test was taken midday which can affect the results of growth hormone tests (need to be early in the morning, also supposed to lie down for 30 minutes before taking it).

My follicle stimulating hormone was also rock-bottom at last test: 0.8 IU/mL
Did you get your Leutinising hormone tested as well. It's quite useful to know both of these test results together. Thanks for letting me know that youore FSH was low. Are you able to post any other blood results, and are you able to post the normal range for your test?

No problem if not.

Hi there, yes you have very low FSH levels as I and several PAS sufferers have reported whilst having normal LH levels. I think FSH levels could be of some significance but its hard to say with any certainty yet. I wrote a little bit about a potential link I made between 5 alpha reductase and FSH.

FSH - First test = 1.1 Second Test = 0.8 Ref Range 1.5 - 12.4

Your DHEA is high but still within range.
