I have adrenal fatigue and im using 32.5mg of Cortef, along with some minerals i was deficient in, my last blood test showed almost undetecable levels of DHEA-S, lower than my levels when i wasnt on Cortef, and i know that this is because the Cortef is surpressing ATCH, allowing my adrenals to rest and repair, but will also surpress DHEA-S in the process.
I want to take 50mg of DHEA i got from my pharmacy, because my levels were 0.5 and should be 17 for my age, but i know i will get some converting to Estrone and Estradiol.
So i was thinking of taking a low dose AI like Letro because i read that it can also help prevent estrogen conversion from adrenal hormones. I have some indoplex but i dont like how it makes me feel, and i dont get low E2 symptoms from it at all, and i personally dont beleive it will help with my situation.
So will using low dose Letro put stress on my adrenals, effect them in any way, or effect Cortisol levels in any way?
