I am just reading up on anxiety, cortisol/adrenal problems, reverse T3 and CT3M. I'm not sufficiently genned-up to begin to experiment with the CT3M and even switching from NDT to T3 only (e.g. clearing the rT3 if I have it - Graves disease 1982, subtotal thyroidectomy 1984 and moderately b**g**d ever since, although total collapse in 2007 from prolonged bullying), but I know I need to get a cortisol test done and I think I need to check my other relevant blood statuses, like ferritin, and reverse T3 levels. Has anyone actually gone through this process themselves, and if so, how did you go about it - any tips on how to start or any pitfalls?
Also, any advice on which might be the best labs to get this done? will i need to join TUK in order to get a discount on lab work - if anyone could point me in the appropriate direction/blogs etc, I'd be very grateful. It is taking me a helluva long time to gather all the diverse information - probably to do with CFS(!) brain-fag exacerbated by lack of/disrupted sleep.
