Hi vonvon!

I too have had some of these tests! Small world, huh?! LOL!

The FSH is the Follicle Stimulating Hormone level, which stimulates growth of the ovum-containing follicles; the LH is the Lutenizing Hormone level, which stimulates ovulation; the TSH is the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone level, which monitors your thyroid level (good, low [possibly causing lethargy and weight gain], or high [possibly causing heart palpitations, hyperactivity and weight loss]). The thyroid regulates all of the systems in our bodies, including temperature.

I believe the Free TY noted should be Free T-4, which is another aspect of the total thyroid level reading, but which is not scrutinized or monitored as closely as the TSH level.

I suggest that you get the proper term for the Prolzutin noted; I could not find anything using that term.

If I may ask, does the doctor suspect that you have a thyroid problem or are you pregnant or menopausal? In any case, please discuss this thyroid result at length with your doctor; I am a firm believer that you can never know too much about the state of your health!!

I was kept in the dark about a low thyroid level for many years and now know, from personal experience, what a roller coaster thyroid problems can be! I had to have my thyroid removed in 2002 due to problems I was having with nodules and a goiter; everything turned out fine, thank God!

Please let us know how you are doing, and in the meantime I'll keep you in my prayers!
