Hi would like advice please.
I am borderline underactive, but with all the symtoms.
I have been taking 2 Nutri adrenal extra and 4 Nutri adrenal tablets with plenty of VitC for about a year, I know these tablets make me feel somewhat better.
I asked my GP for a second opinion at a London Hosp.
The hosp. found my blood was low in cortisol and asked me to stop taking my Nutri adrenal tablets and gave me some Hydrocortisol tablets 10mg and to take 1 a day. They also want to run a couple of tests, one for my pituatory gland.?
My questions are if anyone can help please.
1. Would taking the Nutri adrenal tablets for this length of time give a low cortisol reading in my blood.
2. How safe is it to just start taking this hydrocortisol tablets, bearing in mind the pharm. at the hosp. gave me a blue card which she said I should keep on me at all times.
3. Why would the hosp. give hydrocortisol to take when I have'nt had my tests yet.
I will be very thankful if someone can help please regards June
