I'm really sorry if this is the wrong place, if it is then please direct me to the right forum. I've had really helpful advice from people here on my recent thyroid results - thanks!
I've seen a few other members of Thyroid UK post Adrenal Saliva test results and wondered if anyone can help me? I am having a review with nutritionist but not for a while.
I've just had mine back from Biohealth:
Cortisol morning - 8.7 (13-24 range)
Cortisol noon - 3.3 (5-8 range)
Cortisol Afternoon - 0.4 (4-7 range)
Cortisol evening - 0.2 (1-3 range)
Cortisol sum 12.8 (23-42 range)
Cortisol:DHEA-S Ratio - 1.6 (5-6 range)
I can see these results are poor.. but what does this mean? Is this adrenal fatigue? And what is the basic treatment or advice for this? I've been off work for 4 months with extreme fatigue which I had put down to my recently diagnosed under-active thyroid/hashimotos, but this is another piece of the puzzle I guess.
I've already changed diet to Paleo and taking some basic supplements as per nutritionist.
Will the NHS help with this at all?
Thanks for the advice I'm a bit lost in it all. If I should post this somewhere else please let me know!
