i've retested my cortisol last week as i am currently on 50mcg T4 & 62.5mcg of T3 (and increasing every week) but still getting lots of hypothyroid symptoms and adrenal issues like insomnia and internal shakes etc...
35.05 (14-21) AM HIGH
6.0.6 (4-9) MIDDAY
2.93 (2.5-7) 4PM
3.80 (0.8-4.5) BEFORE BED
So i know my am cortisol is too high (last year is was too low) and my bedtime level should be much lower too even though it's in range...i took some holy basil last night to help bring it down but it made me feel horrible! thumping heartbeat in the ears and throat, insomnia and nausea for an hour before i could actually drift off.
Just after some advice on what to do to help bring this cortisol down as I'm worried now about cushings which i have a fair few of the common symptoms for. i will speak to my dr about this (not expecting them to take me serious mind)
any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks
