DHEA and cortisol - is it normal

DHEA and cortisol - is it normal

I wondered if anyone understands this?

I'm trying to improve my underactive thyroid symptoms. I'm better on T4 and t3 but I still don't have the energy I used to have so I did a saliva adrenal test. My cortisol is high in range, but my DHEA is low in range. Does anyone know if this is something I should try to improve?

I know my t3 was low but i'll have another blood test this week following 6 weeks on t3. I just want to do everything I can to feel like I used to!

I'd appreciate any advice☺.

Can you tell me where you went for the test? I am trying to organise this test at present and am getting nowhere. I'm reading Avviva Romm who has lots of suggestions re improving adrenal function. Hopefully you will get answers.

Don't see anything wrong with those results.

Thanks. I don't sleep well so wondered if cortisol was to blame but then DHEA seemed low. It seems that's quite normal though.
