Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone secreted by basophil cells
in the anterior pituitary gland. Follicle stimulating hormone can promote the
proliferation and differentiation of follicle granulosa cells and promote the
growth of the whole ovary. And its effect on testicular convoluted fine tubule
can promote sperm formation.
Follicle stimulating hormone is secreted pulsatively in the body and
changes with the menstrual cycle in women. The determination of serum
follicle-stimulating hormone is of great significance in understanding pituitary
endocrine function, indirectly understanding the functional status of
hypothalamus and ovary, predicting the time of ovulation, infertility and the
diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases.
Normal reference range for follicle stimulating hormone
Male: 1 ~ 7U/L.
Women: follicular stage: 1 ~ 9U/L, ovulation stage: 6 ~ 260U/L, luteal
stage: 1 ~ 9U/L, menopause: 30 ~ 118U/L.
If follicle stimulating hormone is high, prompt and effective treatment is
needed to prevent further decline in ovarian function. When the treatment, the
first clear cause, according to the cause of the corresponding treatment.
Because ovarian premature failure, need to carry on to promote ovarian function
treatment. Adjust with small dose hormone, cooperate with Chinese traditional
medicine and diet to undertake recuperation and treatment, make ovarian restores
ovulation cycle, in the process of follicle development, mature, eduction,
restore the ability of ovarian self to secrete estrogen.
Low follicle-stimulating hormone can be treated with drugs and daily
conditioning, commonly used drugs such as bromocriptine, deer fetal cream and
vitamin E. Follicle-stimulating hormone is low will affect pregnancy, mainly
affecting the maturation of follicles, follicles can not mature, affect
pregnancy, different periods of endocrine conditions are not the same, it is
recommended in the second to fifth day of menstruation to the hospital to draw
blood to check endocrine conditions, clear diagnosis.
Any body hormone is too high and too low is not good, in the normal
situation can be treated to restore hormone values, through diet and normal life
to regulate their own physical health.
