Patient :I took a liver enyzme and hormone test. The lab that reported the results wrote some notes regarding the seemingly bad nature of the results. When I questioned the physician who I went to, to take the test, he seemed a bit clueless and told me everything was fine.
I'm a 30 year old male and here are the results the tech made note of:
DHEA, SULFATE, SERUM
DHEA SULFATE, SER 164 L
REFERENCE RANGE: 280-640
ESTROGEN, TOTAL 116 PG/ML
REFERENCE RANGE: 130 OR LESS
ASL (SGOT) 58 H [8-42] U/L
ALT (SGPT) 109 H[7-40] U/L
TESTOSTERONE 299 [250-1500] ng/dl
HEMOGLOBIN 17.9 H[12.0-17.8] g/dL
HEMATOCRIT 53.8 H[36.0-52.0] %
I'd like to know what this means and what kind of impact it could have on depression
Firstly, be assured since all your lab report are within normal range. So you need not worry. These hormones and enzymes in normal range do not affect you or related to depression status. But out of depression, due to lack of appetite and food intake, liver enzymes might be altered. You are advised to visit a psychiatrist for further treatment to avoid complications of depression.
