Is high sex hormone binding globulin linked with endo?

Hi all,

I am currently on a waiting list for a diagnostic laparoscopy.

Before endometriosis was suspected, I saw an endocrinologist who carried out blood tests to try and get to the bottom of my extreme fatigue.

These showed me to have VERY high levels of sex hormone binding globulin. The endocrinologist didn't think this was a cause for concern at the time (although they were much higher than the normal range). However, I'm now wondering whether this could be linked to endo (e.g. high levels of estrogen)?

I can't find anything online about this, so any thoughts would be much appreciated!
