I have done the adrenal saliva test 3 times over 4 years as part of my journey to trying to sort out my thyroid/adrenal issues. I was sharing the test results with someone recently and they suggested that it was unusual that although I had chronically low results on the cortisol, my DHEA results were normal. Any ideas why this should be? (I was not using anything consistently over those 4 years ...... I did try LDN for a while around the time of the first 2 tests, and then had stopped for the last test, and had just started using herbal support).
I haven't redone the test since 2015 (due to costs), but I suspect that things did improve for me last year for a while, until I had a series of severe stresses again. At that point the only support I had in place, apart from the usual vitamins/minerals were herbs from my herbalist. I have had a longish slump over the winter, and now am also using natural progesterone (am well past menopause) as was told that it could help to support my adrenals.
