Hello all. I'm usually on the thyroid board since I have thyroid disease (Hashi's), but I recently am seeing a new doctor who was kind enough to do a string of tests including some adrenal testing which included a saliva cortisol test (one I have never done). I can't get in to see him for another two weeks, but he did fax my test results to me and I noticed even though my blood cortisol was fine my saliva cortisol seemed a little low along with some other Adrenal hormones. If anyone could comment on these results I would appreciate it.
Here are some of my results:
these seem a little low too, but not sure if I should be concerned.
I have been feeling extremely tired lately, headaches, sinus infections, no energy after working out (if I even feel like it), just hard to get going all day long, etc.... thought maybe my thyroid was off, but all looks good there.
Anyway any comments or suggestions would be helpful, thanks
If anyone has any experience with low saliva cortisol please let me know how you are handling it. I just went to my doctor yesterday and he said my saliva cortisol is "normal". Also how can you have good blood cortisol and low saliva cortisol?
Thanks for your reply. I'm not on antibiotics, no infections, and my thyroid checked out fine. I'm going to be retested at the end of the month. Also I have started on compounding bio-identical hormones. I am 5 yrs post menopause and have never taken anything. My female hormones were very low. I've been on them for two weeks and feel better, but not great.
