Hi Newbie here. I've been battling with my GP for over a year with many symptoms of Hypothyroid and have been struggling with stress for many years. My Cortisol was tested as being very high last year (570) but saw an Endo who ruled out Cushings but was totally unhelpful in looking into anything else (he basically told me to go away and calm down!!!). So I've spent the last 12 months eating healthily, having counselling, joined a gym 4 x per week but still struggling with symptoms of fatigue, weight gain, heavy periods, hair loss, brain fog, lack of libido, can't get out of bed in the morning etc etc.
I've had some blood tests and cortisol saliva tests done with Medicheck but I really don't understand the results. It has indicated some out of range results but thyroid seems healthy and cortisol is much reduced from previous tests. I've been having a nosey online and wonder if there is a combination of Adrenal Fatigue/Hashi/Ord's going on? I don't know wether to re-visit my GP with these results or just to keep on with the healthy lifestyle for longer to see if it eventually gets better?
Can anyone help with these results:
