Have managed to get myself up to 1.5 grains of armour, no levo, feeling ok, just a bit undermedicated. Cortisol results show low cortisol throughout the day and high DHEA, the results came back with a comment stating there is a recent study showing low cortisol and high DHEA can be a marker for PTSD which I did have after my daughter was born 16 weeks early (due to untreated underactive thyroid!) but had counselling last year and feel clear of it now. So are my adrenals really low (damaged low) or are the results just a leftover from the PTSD and my adrenals are not damaged and will pick up again? The reason I ask is, I have high blood pressure but it sits stable at around 130/90 on 1 medication. Just weighed myself and I have lost 4lbs in the last week without trying and bp sitting at 163/92. Does this mean I am overmedicated due to raising too quickly? Thanks in advance.
