Well, I'm still hoping someone might have some suggestions. I went in today for my follow-up and things are getting really confusing...

My new endo tested my baseline DHEAS and it came in at 118. In August it came back at 434 with the same reference range for normal of 25-220. Why would DHEAS fluctuate that much??

My cortisol came back at 6.8 (4.0-22.0 range for normal).

He had put me on dex (started after the blood work) which did make me feel better. Because he now has no basis for prescribing it, I'll have to stop for at least 8 weeks so we can start over with the tests. I mentioned the tanning but he didn't seem to think much of that. He hasn't given up but I'm worried.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!
