Hi Nate - I go to an alternative MD in Chicago who prescribes the natural hormones for me. They have all the supplements and hormones I need at their clinic.

After saliva and blood testing it was determined I had adrenal insufficiency - my cortisol levels were pretty bad.

I currently take natural cortisol 20 mg daily, DHEA, progesterone cream from a compounding pharmacy, and adrenal granulars from Orthomolecular. Plus other daily supplements.

It took a 2-3 months before I stated feeling pretty good but it's way better than having to take prednisone - that's not an option for me - it puts me into a nervous rage big time.

Hope this helps.

Hi cathyk!!

Thank you for your help! I am thinking that I need to find an alternative endo also. I have an appointment with an endo at UCLA at the end of July, but I am not sure how responsive to naturals they will be. All I know is that I can't take Prednisone for much longer. It's driving me CRAZY!! I'm angry, bloated and I still don't feel any better...not a good combo!!

Do you have any side effects with your meds? If so, I'm sure it's nothing like Prednisone.

I'm glad you are feeling better and you found someting that works for you!!

thank you
