Adrenals & pituitary gland

Adrenals & pituitary gland

Hi guys,

I'm on 2,5 grain NDT for 2 months and I feel ok, but still have some strange symptoms and my blood test result is kinda strange too. TSH is 0,26, ft4 22% but ft3 is 148%. I'm trying to work it out and I decided I will have to check my adrenals and pituitary gland. I want to know what blood test I need for that and do I do this in my gp or rather in hospital (from what I've read I need few saliva collections during the day)? Thanks.


I've seen endo today, I attached a photo of what she want's me to do.

If you post your thyroid results and ranges rather than the percentages through range members may be able to help.

NHS will do a cortisol blood test to check cortisol levels. If you want saliva cortisol testing you will have to order it privately. GP can order a pituitary function test if pituitary dysfunction is suspected. I expect it can be ordered privately but I don't know where from.
