    Can anyone help with an opinion on cortisol and other labs please

    Hi there,
    Am currently being treated for hashi's since last April but am really struggling with exhaustion, bouts of insomnia, brain fog and vision problems. Taking 3 grains of natural dessicated thyroid. Am also now gaining weight again and have high heart rate after taking afternoon dose of 1 1/2 grains which then eases after a while. Also craving salt when it used to be dark chocolate!

    I have been told low cortisol and DHEA and was put on adrenal support (herbal) several months ago. Take 15mg DHEA

    My new results are

    DHEA 1200 (200-3300) ug/L this has increased from 900

    F testosterone 1.3 (.2-13.0) pmol/L

    Chromium .004 (0-.026)

    Ferritin 45 (15-290) also coming up

    Cortisol
    8am 340 (220-720) n mol/L
    4pm 110(110-390)

    TSH .05 (.2-4.00)
    FT4 20. (15-30)
    FT3. 6.7. (2.8-6.8)
    RT3 260

    Am curious to know if adrenals/low in range cortisol are causing continuing symptoms or stopping thyroid meds working properly and would love some insight from someone who has any knowledge of this. Thank you
