I visited Dr. Rogers Monday evening to go over the results of the hormone panel (blood test) I took last month.  I didn’t understand every detail of the report, but he explained the most significant figures.  He said both my estrogen and progesterone levels are low, but my DHEA is high.  He went on to explain that DHEA is the precursor to several hormones in the body, including estrogen, progesterone, adrenaline, and more.  He surmised that since my DHEA level is high, while my estrogen and progesterone levels are low, that the DHEA may be being used primarily to make adrenaline. What does this mean for me?  I’m not sure yet.  Dr. Rogers is planning to consult with his pharmacist to determine which hormone combination would be right for me to take to help the body balance out its hormone levels.  (Dr. Rogers had told me previously that balanced hormones help the body to maintain proper bone density.)

Dr. Rogers also did kinetic testing to make sure the lower dose (1 grain) of thyroid hormone is effective, and it is.  Furthermore, I am to make an appointment in two weeks to see if I can stop taking thyroid altogether!  Dr. Rogers said that the MedCaps T3 (from Xymogen) apparently has done its job in helping my thyroid to heal and produce its own thyroid hormone!

What a blessing!
