After much confusion, NHS, private blood and saliva testing over the last 6-8 months, it seems like I need to address adrenals before thyroid
Full blood panels indicate my thyroid, although not brilliant, has been stable and in range for the last 2 years and antibodies are significantly reduced. My saliva cortisol showed however, showed low levels, especially AM (the result mirrors my fatigue, cognition, motivation and mood symptoms). The only issue being the saliva test reliability, as cortisol levels v prone to variation of % of water in saliva.
I'm concerned that thyroid boosters will worsen my adrenals by creating a bigger gap in the functionality between the two - my thyroid seems healthier than my adrenals atm.
I'm planning on getting some NZ- sourced adrenal glandulars and seeing how that goes. I started L-Seleniumethionine last week and I think I should actually stop this ASAP and wait to see what adrenal supplements do instead
Any thoughts please?
