A Little nervous but I am going to start CT3M tomorrow having had all my various blood tests results back I feel ready to start and since my Cholesterol levels were not great I thought I'd get on with it.
I am confused as to when to use T3CM given my Adrenal Stress Saliva test. Paul Robinson said to start at 8am BUT my normal waking time is around 5.30 to 6 am in the morning breakfast by 7am. I am a naturally early riser.
So given this and the results below can I ask you to advice me on my starting time for Dose 1 please?
I seem to be the opposite way round to some people. I do feel things may have swung back to normal a bit though since coming off T4. I can now go to bed at 10 pm and drop off to sleep and only wake at 12 and 4 am these days.
Saliva Test Oct 2012. 10 days of no (Adrenal support) I was only taking one in the morning anyway for months.
Results Oct 2012:
Reverse T3 0.65 (0.14-0.54) Just for ref:
Sample 1: 7am 15.3 (12-22) Inside Range
Sample 2: 12 noon 7.7 (5.0-9.0) Inside Range
Sample 3: 5pm 7.6 (3.0-7.0) High
Sample 4: 10.00 pm 4.8 (1.0-3.0) High
Total Daily Cortisol 35.4 (21-41) nmol/L inside Range
Sample 2: 12noon 0.06 Low
Sample 3: 5pm 0.11 Low
DHEA Cortisol Ratio 0.24 Low
DHEA Mean 0.09 (0.20-0.70)
DHEA Cortisol Ratio 0.24 (0.6-3.0)
Hope this makes sense to you all and you can say roughly when to start that first dose.
Dr P did write last week to say take some DHEA if needed, but I would rather not for now.
