Thanks for your input. I have spent the last 6 months cutting out flour and lowering carbs. I see a nutritionist weekly and I have lost 20lbs yet my testosterone keeps going up. Im so lost for reasons why. I have made all the right changes but still having problems.
My testosterone levels have gone down since I've cut out refined carbs. My carbs now only come from fruit, veg and brown rice. I wasn't taking any other meds because I wanted to try and cure myself naturally.However, I have just started taking Spirolactone which is a dieuretic that is also used to treat Hirsutism has it is an antiandrogen that lowers testosterone levels. Still, my testosterone and lowered itself into the high end of "normal" by changing my diet. Hope this helps

I was diagnosed PCOS when I was 21. I am now 29. My docotrs have always had me on Metformin and birth control. Within the last 6months I have not been on birth control because of my blood pressure getting too high (120/86) so my doctor would not renew my script for birth control. I haven't had a period in 4 months now that I have been off the BC. My dotors tested my lab and my Cholesterol went from 219 to 192, My insulin went from 13.9 to 9, fasting sugar went up from 88 to 90, and my liver enzimes are now normal range. The problem I have is that my testosterone keeps going up even though everthing else is going down. My testosterone is 194. It used to be 174, and my free testosterone is 18. Both numbers are about 3-4 times the normal high for women. Has anyone else had issues like this and what did they do? I have to go see and endo now to rule out something eles going on. Any feedback for me?
