... iciency, and his aldosterone seems to be consistently low. This is one hormone created by the adrenal glands, as you probably know. BUT...his plasma sodium and potassium do NOT look suspicious.

... I have just had more blood tests and in my dr's words there is nothing very exciting to report. I just don't get it, why nothing shows up. I have been ill for so long and have had the MS question mark over my head for years etc. I am sure I have adrenal/thyroid/low blood sugar probs.
