I'm a fairly healthy 15 year old girl and I've been eating 80/20 Paleo (w/grass-fed beef and pork) for a year and a half, but I don't cycle regularly. I know I have hormone issues, but any other thoughts/suggestions? Note: I'm waiting on a serum ferritin test to come back.

Thing that pops out at me is your LH:FSH ratio. They should normally be close to 1:1. Was this blood test done on day 3 of your cycle? If so perhaps consider PCOS as the cause of your menstrual irregularities - plus your testosterone levels are elevated.
