A friend mentioned to me the other day a condition her friend has where she produces antibodies to hormones, this means she gets really ill 1-2 weeks before her period and throughout the month, Iv never heard of this and cant remember what she called this condition:rolleyes:, has anyone ever heard of this?

Hi,

I've never heard of it before either!

It's possible to have antibodies to different endocrine (hormone producing) organs. There are specific antibody tests for this and an Immunologist or Endocrinologist would usually be the one to run them and investigate.

There are even things like autoimmune polyglandular syndrome which is an inherited disorder involving several endocrine glands.

love
Lily

Heres what I turned up. Made interesting reading.

There are lots of other very complicated abstracts and reviews that I wouldnt even dream of ploughing through! ;)

I hope you get your appointment soon.

Luv n stuff
