Re: low low adrenaline
i feel like your twin in the UK
the amount of crap i have heard from Doctors, i have had to toally educate myself on the endocrine system.
unfortuniately i never considered Adrenaline.
i spoke to a private Dr who gave me Clonidine , this appears a complicated drug, as it seem to act as type of adrenaline freeing up real adrenaline reserves, well that is the Dr's theory and a few web sites, not sure if its true, but i have actually felt 5 times better the last few days, still no where near perfect.
I had a 24hr adrenaline test done two weeks ago
result was 33 in optimal range 80-140 possible range 30-165
the strange was i was gagging, hyper on the verge of adrnaline crash (which i had before and GP said was nothing), could barely stand up yet had a huge rush in my body probably caused by a stressed/swollen thyroid,.
so for my condition, that to me is extremely low, i have peaks of slight improvement so over 24 hrs that could be as low as 15 and as high as 40, trying to cope with a hyper thyroid, if true, no wonder i was nearly dead on my feet.
i also have amazingly low dopamine 38 in a 125-225 range, a precuser of Adrenaline.
i'm going to see a proper endro in the next few weeks and will point out all the evidence i have, hopefully this could be the end of a long long long hard battle, but i never know
my cortisol is fine, but very low in evenings, i have been given oral cortisol and its helped slightly but not much really.
i have been blaming the thyroid for over a year, but its probably been the adrenal gland all along.
if you are interested in some very good sites for adrenal urine tests (nor-adrenaline, Adrenaline Dopamine etc), let me know, they are available with out Dr supervision ofcourse
