Addison's Disease Message Board

Addison's Disease Board Index

The main mechanism for my anxiety and depression seems to be the thyroid, but is exacerbated by impaired and depressed cortisol rhythm. I was doing [COLOR="Magenta"][B]GREAT[/B][/COLOR] for the short time I was on Armour. Prior to that, no doing to shabbily on levothyroxine for a year and half. Came to a point where I could no longer tolerate thyroid meds. It has been downhill from there. :(

Recent thyroid test (no meds 5 weeks+)

TSH: [B]5.121[/B] (.350-5.5)
FT4: [B]1.04[/B] (.61-1.76)
FT3 [B]2.8 [/B](2.3-4.2)


I suspect my adrenals were bad all along? since I went untreated for so long.

My dr has settled on the diagnosis of hypothyroidism and partial secondary AI.
