Adrenal results are back, I took the sliva cortisol test, cortisol results are below range:
Sample 1 - on awakening 4.5 nmol/L range 12 -22
Sample 2 - at noon 2.3 nmol/L range 5.0 -9.0
Sample 3 - at 4pm 0.5nmol/L range 3.0 - 7.0
Sample 4 - at 9pm 0.5 nmol/L range 1.0 - 3.0
DHEA levels (am) = 0.03 range 0.40 -1.47
DHEA levels (pm) = 0.03 range 2.0 - 6.0
I am at exhaustion stage - bad! I went to GP yesterday and although I had a Synacthen test in feb 2012 which was normal he had me do a 9am cortisol test this morning. I doubt it will be of any use and if anything a red herring as we all know the NHS blood tests are basically aimed at picking up a person with adrenal failure/Addisons. I feel so weak and tired all of the time and i believe i am suffering reactive hyperglcemia due to low cortisol/DHEA. I guess I need to find a private Dr (I have a list) to help me or self medicate. I have managed to get GP to sign me off and he signed me off for next week but I have a few weeks at least in mind so I guess the most i'm going to expect from him is a sick note..sigh!
Is there anyone out there with levels like mine who is undergoing treatment, any help/advice appreciated. I dont think the thyroid meds helped in terms of sending my adrenals into a crisis.
