Addison's Disease Message Board


Addison's Disease Board Index


Hi, my name is Kevin...I'm 30/M, 183lbs, 5'11". I'm going to list some labs, hopefully one of you adrenal guru's can help me. I suspect I have some kind of adrenal problem. I've had low sex drive, fatigue, tightness in chest (I'm asthmatic but drugs havent helped me in a year of treatment), mood swings, irritable, some depression, low motivation, bad insomnia.

Do I have Addison's you think?? Did my Dr's miss some important tests? The DHEA being low has me concerned and I thought it might point to an adrenal or possibly a pituitary issue and might explain why my testosterone has been low for my age. I'm going to a Endoctrinologist on the 13th. :confused:

I have another set of blood-work that followed up the ANA Titer and I will post those results when I get them from my Dr. They were before the 11-15-05. Thanks for taking the time to look and any guidance would be great!

[B]3/12/2005[/B] (Had an absolute ton of bloodwork ordered..mostly off the wall stuff like for ticks and antibodies which came back normal,I will only post anything relevent or not normal here. In January 05 I had 2 pretty bad chest infections in a row. Had antibiotics and a course of prednisone which did nothing basically. Stopped Androgel a month before. I was scared of sterility was afraid of hormone thearapy. Probably a mistake. The tightness in my chest had continued for 2 months which is abnormal for me, that's why I had her do more tests.)
