Addison's Disease Message Board


Addison's Disease Board Index


My cortisol was at 5 % in the blood serum and only in normal region at 8 am. After i take my DHEA supplementation. ACTH Stim high.. 70 when normal <35

I am vit D deficient. Now aggressively treating this. Doesn't help the hypoT constipation issues. ;)
I was vit B12, ferritin, and magnesium deficient.. But I have gotten those into the 40% range of normal and holding six months now.

My Hashimoto's antibodies are about 2000.
My CSF is at an elevated pressure and I have oligomeric banding and noted milan destruction.. MRI is clean.. as well as a bunch of other tests.. no MS or lupus.. so Hashimoto's encephalopathy is suspected. Go back in May for another round of testing on that one.

I am having issues with regulating thyroid meds because my T3 levels are/were 2 fold my T4 levels and I keep pushing my self hyperT in T3 while remaining hypoT in T4.

My endo claims I am normal because my TSH was 2 before meds.. all else was irrelevent. Bless her. So I am working with my IM and we are both in new territory. Know any good Endos with in 4 hours of Chattanooga, TN with this mess. :D

Right now my list is:
Thyroid: TPOAb, TGAb, TBG, TSH 3rd Gen, Ft3, Ft4, T2

Adrenals: ACTH, Cortisol 8 am, Aldosterone, and ACA, renin

Pituitary/hypothalamus: PTH, TRH

General AI: ANA

So anything I am missing? I am giving my blood chemistry a good 3 months to level out and equilibrate. So the Vit D and other mess will wait. Also any advice in getting rid of the water retention in the feet? Just the feet and my right ankle. Ocassionally my knees swell but that normally corresponds to a Hashi's flare and hypoT state. AHHHH! Okay better now. Crud.. I think I am working up to a hyperT swing again. This really sucks.
