Today, I'm wondering about:
a) do GPs do a DHEA (or DHEA(S)) test and is it worth doing ? Does it give valuable information about whether adrenals are struggling and DHEA supplementation may help ?
b) what interpretation to make if:
i) cortisol (early morning) BLOOD test by GP shows a good high result (measures bound & free cortisol, I understand !), and ii) the 24hr saliva (free) cortisol test (Genova) gives a flat line at the bottom of the graph ( - is this Stage 7 adrenal insufficiency, according to STTM ?).
c) what might a long term ( - year, after year) elevated gamma GT level ( - a liver enzyme) mean, for a non-drinker in the absence of fatty-liver ( - confirmed by an ultra scan).
Considered views gratefully received.
Best wishes to all !
