I havent been on this forum for a while but have come unstuck in my ongoing quest for health!
I have gone through being on Levo then onto Armour (under Dr S) but couldnt get passed 2 grains due to other symptoms. I am now on T3 only and trying to resolve my other problems. I came off my meds recently (for unrelated reasons, long story) and had some tests done. These tests show that I have very low cortisol still (24 hr saliva) despite 6 months doing CT3M and a few months on nutri adrenal extra (had to stop due to adrenaline surges). They also show high blood glucose, normal/highish aldosterone, high renin and inflammation. I have high blood pressure (which shot up when i came off T3 despite medication and has since gone back down now I am back on it although im still on 1 med) and am overweight.
I believe that high renin with top of the range aldosterone is an uncommon situation to be in. I am on the verge of starting HC for my cortisol issues but Im scared I will make things worse. I have no GP support and no private doctor support at this time.
From my reading it would appear all the above issues are interlinked. Could it be Addisons disease? My cotisol results are quite bad.
