Re: Adrenal results
Thanks for responses.
Well...I'm not expert on the adrenal thing either. I've got a whole host of questions too. My doc got the results yesterday and still hasn't called to inform me. She doesn't know I already know...so once again we know the negligence continues...
Chris on the Addison boards...says I should get a STIM test. I'm still not understanding what the best course of treatment is and why. It appears the doctor doesn't have a clue.
From what I gather, even though my Cortisol level is WAY high in the morning, and goes a little too low in the evening, I should perhaps take some cortisol. I don't know if this would give my adrenals a break...so they could recover...or if this simply is cortisol on top of cortisol...which will make me age faster than I already am.
So..in the end....I'm still pretty worried and confused, but glad that I've uncovered something that would point to the reason for my pains...that the doctors say isn't there.
I already got some isicort..because in my heart I just knew I had an adrenal problem....Its milder than the factory ordered stuff, and you can just take a couple during the day.
Dea...yes. Get this -- I am taking: 10 milligrams of Armour, 5 mcg time-released Cytomel, and 100 micrograms of Synthroid. That's like: 106 T4 and 6.5 T3.
I started this just on Tuesday...the time-released cytomel and a couple milligrams of Armour being the newest additions. I still feel groggy, and miserable...although the fibromylagia is better with the T3 and the mind has improved too. I see now that I should have never tried t4 alone. By far it did the most damage.
