Hi All, im new to asking for help but here goes. Adrenal glandulars, bovine, porcine, cortex, are they bad news,or helpful? I am 'afraid' all of the time now to try another thing in case i feel worse (late diagnosis of Hashi's, very complex gut issues /malabsorption/ gut pain/nausea) Taking 1/4 grain Armour (no longer housebound RESULT !! ) temp up to 36.5 am ,35 or 35.5 pm, Vit D up, Ferritin crashed 18. All Dr Peats test indicate poor adrenals despite Genova test ok ish on that day.
I can no longer tolerate Floradix or any other iron supplements due to liver pain, and my diet is appalling because its become so difficult to eat and digest without pain/nausea (taking HCL and childrens enzymes) clearly still need to up the Armour dose, but when i tried this i became jittery etc. I have tried Nutri Adrenal and even 1/2 tablet gave me the jitters deep inside top to toe.
Has anyone felt the same ? or any success with porcine glandulars instead of bovine. Most medics fill you with fear when you mention adrenal glandulars, telling you they are dangerous, will damage you permenently.
How do you know if your adrenals are still working a little,to be safe to take them, or whether the long term stress has reached a point of no return regarding adrenals, and therefore taking a supplement might push the issue too far ?
Im in a circle/cycle i cant break, i need to support my adrenals to absorb meds,mins,vits and food. Have looked into Paleo and FODMAPS which i am happy to do,my only concern is i am dairy,gluten ,meat free ,have tried a month grain free. None of these are difficult to do,just difficult to sustain with gut pain.
What a ramble, my apologies,
best wishes to all G.
