Originally, almost 2 years ago, I was diagnosed hypothyroid and had low hormones right across the board, including low cortisol all day. Recently, after some time stable and optimal, my thyroid FT3 and FT4 were over range, so I have been reducing my WP Thyroid which I started this year. I just did saliva adrenal tests and I am well over the range at all 4 times of the day. I can't explain why and I don't feel like I have adrenal fatigue again. The only difference in lifestyle is I am exercising regularly- as I did before I first became unwell- and I guess its quite hard although I really like and enjoy it. I am sweaty and hot a lot, I thought down to my thyroid, but other than that I don't have any symptoms of high cortisol. I am puzzled as to why this happened when I am meditating regularly, I work from home and I see a therapist for CBT and hypnosis for train anxiety which has just almost completely resolved itself. I am WAY more relaxed than I have ever been in my life. I haven't been this happy and content in years and yet my cortisol is really high! Could it be from the thyroid issues? I also just found out I wasn't absorbing B12 sublingual, low but not very low, B12 and I have switched to patches to help that. I used to have good levels even when I was in a hypothyroid state but since going over range I am having trouble with a few vitamin levels going down a bit. Puzzling.
