My daughter Sophia who's 15 was diagnosed with Adrenal insufficiency in December 2013 she is currently on 30mg hydrocortisone daily . Not sure if she is primary or secondary AI .
Even though Sophia is on the hydrocortisone she isn't really improving prior to being diagnosed Sophia lost 4 stone in weight and even with the medication she hasn't put an ounce back on . The only thing that as improved is Sophia had severe back pain before diagnosis and this as improved .
Sophia also suffers from being extremely cold even after wrapping up with a few layers of clothing she just can't get warm ? Also she as started having spasms in her hands where her fingers just lock ?
Here is Sophia's synatchen test results perhaps someone could explain them too me ?
Baseline 184nmol rising to 339 nmol
PTH 12 with calcium 2.40 and phosphate 1.20
Coeliac screen negative
Plasma renin activity 1.4 ng/ml/hour
Aldersterone < 110
LHRH test - peak LH 80 peak FSH 15 oestradiol 93 TSH 2. Free T4 17
Cortisol profile varying between 110 and 181 between 9.15 and 15.15pm
Sophia is tired all time and feels drained . I have heard of another medication fludro cortisone and did mention it to her endo but he never prescribed it going off Sophia's tests results would she benefit from any other tests medication ?
Thanks for any help you can give us
