I took the Red Apple adrenal test
About 18 years ago.
NHS doctors made an excuse that it was just a one off that my morning cortisol was low.
I had the test done twice on 11 Hydroxcortisol and 17 Hydroxcortisol. The NHS had not a clue what DHEA was a and that was low.
I also had 2 24 hr urines with high total cortisol done by the NHS.
at the same time. My consultant
ignored the test results as far as looking for other conditions other than cushings. I said why is 11 Hydroxcortisol missing I got a blank from the consultant.
I asked other consultants they just ignored it or said it was a fluke. Genovea did a cortisol test in 08 it came out the same.
So I had 3 urine tests and 2 saliva. The NHS say the saliva is not accurate.
That's because the blood test is a chemical test and the saliva is a antigen test.
That means the up take is not being measured.
My private doctor and I came to the conclusion it was CAH.
But then another NHS consultant
Said my DHEA was low. So it was not CAH.
Only it does not tell if my DHEA was high as child and young adult. As I had high prolactin then. I had the same growth pattern as a CAH child.
That being the child is muscular
Their growth spurt is much sooner that the class average.
but they end up being smaller than you might think.
This stuffs in books.
You go to any medical library.
Some where most consultants GP don't go. Only students then I think they burn their note books.
And refuse to learn any more. It's much the same with computers.
They only read NHS sites.
If the NHS has not got it right you
Like they say too much salt is bad for you. It's not in some instances it can lower blood pressure. It's other elements like
That take it out of solution.
A myth has been built around it.
Basic chemistry GCSE says if there is a lack of a substance other chemicals precipitate out of solution.
If the biochemists within the NHS can't get this right.
But it's not so much the biochemists it's the doctors not understanding the test results.
It's not correct protocol for a doctor to be told the answer by a biochemist.
A biochemist told me once he was told to keep his noise out.
So what we need is a biochemist
not a doctor. They are doctors anyway.. But they don't work in the same closed shop as the medical Doctors.
Jobs for the boy's if you don't have the right hand shake and all that.
It's a Doctor of Neurochemistry we need and genetics.
