... I will be seeing a new ObGYn, who specializes in reproductive endocrinology. She wants to have some related hormone tests performed, and I don't want to mess up the validity of results. I am taking 5 mg pregnenolone MWF, and have been for a month. Prior to that on another drs advice, I was taking 10 mg DHEA MWF, but then decided to go back to Pregnenolone. I also am taking two...

... When I went in for the 2nd Thyoid panel, I specifically asked the Nurse for both the Anti-TPO and the TgAB, but they only ran one. I was going to go back to push the issue, but I was too distracted becaused they agreed to do an ACTH Stim test without any resistance. From my understanding, you have two variants of Thyroid AB problems. Hashi's attacks the Thyroid itself... (31 replies)
... I am starting to suspect I have an adrenal problem due to the fact I have been unable to tolerate my thyroid meds. This has happened recently after a trial of a few months on Armour. Now, I can't hardly take a small dose of thyroxine. My thyroid tests say I at mid range for the T3, yet I am experiencing severe hyper symptoms, which should not happen until the upper range or...

... It sounded familiar to me, so I pulled my copies of my own Diagnos-Techs saliva test results. (is yours Diagnos-Techs?) Their "Cortisol-DHEA Correlation Zones" are derived from DHEA charted against Cortisol and mapping areas of the graph: 1. Adapted to stress (top-right) 2. Adapted with DHEA slump (top-center) 3. Maladapted Phase I (top-left) 4. Maladapted Phase II... (4 replies)
... Hi, I'm new here. I have Adrenal exhaustion (I think). My blood pressure is always low-like 75/54 for example. I cannot stay awake. I've fallen asleep while talking on the phone I am on 4-5 cortef a day and florinef yet this goes on and on. I have had chronic pelvic pain for 24 yrs. (beginning after a c-section) and last year was stressful in almost everyway. I am... (7 replies)
... I know 5 women who have had their adrenals removed because of Cushings. We meet for lunch every few months in the Portland, Oregon area. Wanda (7 replies)
... I have no adrenal glands. Removed several years ago. Has anyone else out there had same operation?? (7 replies)
... Well then, that explains why there is less on adrenal exhaustion on this board than I was hoping for - and that makes sense, I think. Let's identify this disorder, for purposes of this post, as secondary hypoadrenia, in which full recovery is possible. Because adrenal exhaustion is a fairly common secondary condition to hypothyroidism, you will find some information, though... (7 replies)
... Dear friends, I think the reason you may not have gotten answers on this board is that people tend to separate Adrenal insufficiency or Addison's or secondary Addison's from adrenal exhaustion. There are even those who argue about whether adrenal exhaustion (usually putting forth the idea that adrenal glands can be temporarily exhausted but then recoop and get better) is... (7 replies)
... I can't wait for someone with knowledge of this to respond, cause I sound alot like you. Allie (7 replies)
... It is hard to find much information about adrenal exhaustion, but I have read a couple of things on the net about different stages of it. It says that in stage II, you overreact to everything and the cortisol levels are high. In stage III, the cortisol levels are low and the adrenals are exhausted and cannot keep up with the body's demands. It mentions an inability to handle... (7 replies)
... Hi...I'm Lucy and I'm usually on the Thyroid board. I'm hypothyroid (Graves treated years ago w/RAI). Have been on Levox for years and been successfully tx'd. Past 2 months I felt really bad and started putting on a few pounds for seemingly no reason. Went back to doc and found out my TSH was 12. She adjusted my meds from175mcg to 200mcg and added 5mg Cytomel. I had new labs... (1 replies)
... Hi Everyone, I thank you in taking the time to read my post. I am desperately seeking answers and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Hi Everyone, (2 replies)
... Hi, I've just joined after reading loads of posts on here and thinking most could be by me!! Long story...from the beginning... About 3 years ago I was constantly under the weather so my gp referred me to a general health consultant. Had a range of tests and the only thing that came back was low cortisol. So I had the ACTH simulation test but that came back normal. I have... (1 replies)
... The indication was progressing phase 2 adrenal fatigue. ... (0 replies)
... I just had one about two months ago from diagnostechs. It showed up such low values they rounded to 0 at all times. Years ago I had the same test, and it showed hyper levels of cortisone at 8am, and depressed levels at 12:00am and 4:00pm. They told me I had a serious adrenal fatigue and it might be able to be helped with 10 mg of cortisol each day. The Dr. doing the... (1 replies)
... They said I had "maladapted phase 2 adrenal fatigue." Wondering what this means, and how aggressively I should seek proper treatment. How low would this number be if I had addisons? ... (1 replies)
... would love some input on my ACTH stim test. would i do ok with taking some Cortef and Florinef? I fasted food and liquids from 8pm the night before the test and fasted salt 24hrs before the test. the test was done during the 1st week of my cycle. 08/26/09 ACTH stim test (low dose 0.001mcg Cortrosyn via I.V) 8:40am-Baseline Cortisol = 13.7 ug/dL 08:52am - ACTH...
