I have Hashimotos and have just got the results of my cortisol test it states that my first three samples are normal but the one late at night is elevated normal range is 0.83-3.86 mine is 4.91 it says on the private Genova report this suggests adrenal hyperfuction what do I do with this now?
Could this be the cause of sweating and flushing I seem to get it half an hour after taking my NDT although I also had it when I was on t3 only.
I am presently taking three quarters of a grain in the morning three quarters in the afternoon at 12 ish and half a grain at 3 30 that is 2 grains in total of Nature thyroid
blood results for March 2016 are
TSH 0.03 ( 0.35-5.00)
T4 10.6 ( 9- 21)
Total t3 1.5 ( 0.9-2.5)
thyroid perioxidase antibodies are 108.7 less than 6 is normal ( these are continuing to climb despite me taking Low dose naltrexone) also I am gluten free. My Endo suggested stopping low dose Naltrexone also I am lucky that someone (who really is an expert) goes to my support group and also suggested stopping LDN . I stopped it 4 days ago sweating episodes slightly less but not disappeared yet, they are almost like a vaso vagal episode
The hospital letter states I have gastric parietal cell antibody present in my last blood screening but my B2 levels look ok B12 766 ( 200-900)
I take vitD3 supplements but havent taken my B12 tablets for two months
Main symptom has always been exhaustion ( GP diagnosed CFS) but this sweating episodes are so exhausting I thought it was menopause related I am 56 but its gone on for almost three years so I think it might be medication related they occur at night too .
My Alkaline phosphotase is also being monitored by the hospital as it is high although the Endo stated that it is an acute phase reactant rising in the context of an acute illness
I am still trying to work part time but it can be a real struggle at times as I am exhausted ( special educational needs teacher )
Any advice really appreciated
