... No, he hasn't tested my adrenal glands. He is not on my insurance plan so I could only afford the thryoid tests anyway with a discount. I am going to test the cortisal levels with a test I ordered on the internet. It is cheaper for me to to it this way. I have an appointment with him in 2 weeks. When he saw me last my test results said I was hyper instead of hypo because of... (2 replies)

I have a feeling your OB wouldn't like... (29 replies)
