A recent blood test taken at 10am by my local NHS hospital shows I have border line adrenal fatigue. My GP has organised a synacthen test due to be taken shortly. I have extreme sensitivities to drugs/chemicals and concerned about the substance they pump into you for this test. I am aware a saliva test may be more accurate but not in a position to fund privately and have to go with the flow. Should my levels be of concern to the hospital I am worried what treatment they may recommend. I much prefer the alternative route, having followed this for years, unfortunately I am not in a good space at present even though I have a healthy diet/life style. I admit to having been subjected to a great deal of family stress which I am attempting to deal with at Counselling sessions.
I am on 100 levo having been reduced from 125 but Dr insists this is for the best. At 74 years of age I think stresses of life have finally caught up with me, I really thought my final hours were up around five weeks as I felt so dreadful, I am limping along. Since then I have quietly attempted recovery following James Wilson's Adrenal fatigue advice. Sadly I am finding it difficult to recover and feel I have no choice but to end up in the hands of the NHS and all that entails. I am a fighter and a great researcher so any advice and help would be very much appreciated. Thank you for reading my long blog.
