Last year I dealt with a prostate infection which 1) caused weak urine flow 2) some ED issues (weaker erection and inability to maintain erection), and 3) disrupted sleep with urination.
This year (Jan. 2012) have have been dealing with the same issues, so I went to a Urologist. He recommended I get a testosterone blood test and here were the results on Jan. 18th, 2012 from 8:00am test:
-Prolactin - 151 mIU/?L (85 - 500)
-Cholesterol - 4.2 mmol/L (3.9 - 5.5)
-FSH - 2.4 U/L (1.5 - 13.0)
-LH - 4.8 U/L (2.0 - 10.0)
-Testosterone - 14.3 (11.5 - 32.0)
He did not address or look at my prostate issue AT ALL, which left a bad taste in my mouth, so I went to a GP for a second opinion. He checked my prostate and said it felt inflamed, so he prescribed Doxycycline. He ALSO did a blood test for additional hormone levels and PSA and here are the results taken on Feb. 7th, 2012 at 9:00am:
Reproductive Hormones - Roche Method
Oestradiol - 86 pmol/L ( <160 )
Testosterone - 20.2 (11.5 - 32.0) ****UP from previous blood test***
SHBG - 28 nmol/L (15 - 50)
Free Androgen Index (FAI) - 72.1 % (15 - 100)
PSA - 1.6 ug/L ( 0.20 - 2.1 0 ) ***men 30 - 39, the median range is 0.75 ug/L. This is high for my age***
Can anyone shed any light on my hormone levels and my high PSA level?
