Dear Chris,

Thanks so much for all your help. You have really helped me to clarify my concerns. I wanted to run a theory by you about the results of my ACTH stim test (results on included in my first post on page 1). I believe that my baseline cortisol was as high as it was because i had been on HC for several months and had only DC it 24 hours prior to this blood draw. Because it remains in your system at 1/2 24 hours after d/c, my baseline cortisol level was what it was - normal range. However, as you pointed out, it i had been off of it longer, over time my level would of approached the 5.3 cortisol level taken a year prior to staring HC.

I also wonder that because my thyroid levels are on the low end of normal, that i didnt metabolize the HC as quickly as someone whose thyroid was functioning more normally - does this make sense??

also, what thyroid meds do you suggest i be on? if i start amour do i continue on lex and cytomel? thanks.

looking forward to hearing back from you.

Ramie
