..sorry you are having problems being diagnosed. Do you have results with ranges of your most recent Thyroid blood tests ? Also VitD B12 Ferritin Folate Iron ?

Would it be possible to have the Saliva Adrenal tests done privately through Thyroid UK ?


Sorry had blood test after blood test all I've been told is that my thyroid is OK though cholesterol is high no figures an my liver enzymes are not OK Having another test next week but the doctor's only doing it because of my liver enzymes but she said it would be a lot more in-depth


They say things come in three's

but could this be what you could have ........Triple-A syndrome

Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrimia syndrome

The Addisonianism is one that is missing from your diagnosis perhaps you could show this to your doctor to investigate. please let me know how you get on, hope you get the treatment you need to feel better. Wishing you all the best xx

Triple-A syndrome (AAA), also known as Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrimia syndrome or Allgrove syndrome


Even if its rare it happens, perhaps your the rarity. This should be no excuse not to test your adrenals.
