Hi Everyone,

I had a follow-up to receive and discuss my labwork with the Endo. yesterday re hair loss, iron, thyroid, anemia...

He says I have mild PCOS. This is based on my LH and FSH ratio...LH is 5.4 FSH is 2.0. The only symptom of PCOS that I have is hair loss. I'm skinny, have no acne, facial or excess body hair, have regular periods. Another part of PCOS is insulin resistance which I don't have. Hmmm.

I was convinced it was a thyroid problem because PCOS explains none of my other symptoms which are low ferritin/low iron, anxiety, cold all the time, very fine hand tremors, fatigue. Antibodies were negative.

However, my tsh keeps going up every time I get it tested. Last year it was 2.0. Earlier this year it was 2.73 and last month it was 3.71. I asked the Endo about this and he wasn't concerned. Hmmm.
