Re: thyroid adrenal?


It is typical for hypothyroidism to go undiagnosed for years. During this time, the adreanal are overworked making up for the lack of sufficient thyroid hormone.

Now, for some reason, and I am less familiar with the mechanics of this point, the stress of going on thyroid medication can cause further exhaution of the adrenals.

One additional factor for you, is the surgery. The adrenals work overtime dealing with any kind of stress. Mental/emotional, allergies, surgery, over exersizing, just to name a few.
My opinions only, not medical advice. Always follow advice of your Doctor, not what I say here.
