Hi there I hope somebody may be able to advise me, as I'm unsure what to do. I found out (via saliva test in Jan) that I am suffering with adrenal fatigue, and recently also did a private urine test to check my thyroid, which suggests I'm hypothyroid. T4 is in range, T3 is low.
From what I have read, and what many others have said - doctors are pretty useless when it comes to adrenal issues (unless severe). I've booked an appointment with my preferred doctor on Friday, but I'm really starting to wonder what the point is, and what I'm really expecting? I'd 'like' some support and guidance - basically somebody to tell me if what I'm doing is right or wrong. Sometimes it's a bit scary going it alone, and frankly I don't think anybody should!!! If I do go, I might print off my results and hand them in a few days before my appointment, and hope that the doc will at least have a look through them and think about his own approach to the subject before I go in. Long shot, but worth a go?
Should I ask for more thyroid tests? Should I ask them to check anything else? I had a full blood count last June, which all came back 'normal'. However - I don't believe I want to be taking any thyroid meds at the moment, until my adrenals have been addressed?
If anybody has any suggestions/tips for this appointment, I'd really appreciate it! Or if it's probably a waste of time, then I won't waste my energy going lol.
