 High testosterone

What can be the cause in a woman?  Mine are at about 4200-4700 which is way
above normal for a woman.  At first they thought adrenal gland tumor because
my DHEA-S was high, my dhea-s has gone down but my testestorone levels are
still extremely high.  I'm out of answers and the doctor's down here don't
think it's a problem, except my ob-gyn.  The endocrinologist don't want to
run tests.  One told me that it was because I was on birth control and unless
I stopped taking them she couldn't help me.  When I told her that there was 2
tests ran, one without being on birth control and another a year later while
on birth control and the numbers were still the same, she dismissed it.  I am
constantly tired and I am tired of being tired. I've put on 20 lbs and I feel
miserable.  I exercise and eat right but the ob-gyn says that it makes you
retain water and gain weight.  What am I to do?

There are some women who have higher levels of testosterone.

Higher levels of testosterone would not explain your fatigue.

Would suggest you ask your doctor(s) to supervise your use of the
2PD-OMER Approach to eat less to lose weight safely and permanently:

Yes, please do ask your doctor about the 2PD-OMER approach.  Let us
know what he or she says about it.

Vegetarian women have lower testosterone levels than omnivorous women.

Am J Clin Nutr. 1989 Mar;49(3):433-42.
Diet and plasma androgens in postmenopausal vegetarian and omnivorous women
and postmenopausal women with {*filter*} cancer.
Adlercreutz H, Hamalainen E, Gorbach SL, Goldin BR, Woods MN, Dwyer JT.
Department of Clinical Chemistry, University of Helsinki, Finland.

We studied 27 postmenopausal women, 9 vegetarians, 10 omnivores, and 8
apparently healthy women with {*filter*} cancer (BC), four times during 1 y.
Dietary intakes were recorded and plasma androgens and sex-hormone-binding
globulin (SHBG) binding capacity were determined. Androstenedione (A),
testosterone (T), free T (FT), and SHBG were higher in omnivores than in
vegetarians. In multiple correlation analysis, intakes of protein and fat
were positively correlated with A, T, and FT, whereas the intakes of
carbohydrate, grain, total fiber, and grain fiber showed the opposite
correlations. Protein intake was positively correlated with percentage FT
(%FT) and negatively with SHBG. BC patients had a similar pattern to
omnivores with even higher levels of A and T (significant compared with
vegetarians) and they showed significantly higher FT and lower SHBG than
both control groups. We conclude that a Western-type diet in postmenopausal
women is associated with high A, T, %FT, FT, and low SHBG and this pattern
was apparent in the BC patients. PMID: 2923075

That is a hasty conclusion. The ketogenic diet was not compared to any other
diet.

Irrespective of diet, creatures who eat less tend to live twice as
long:
