My sypmtoms indicated adrenal fatigue, and a 4 point saliva test confirmed that my cortisol was low.
DHEA was also low in blood tests & saliva, which can be another indicator of AF.
In regards to your TSH going up and down, have you have your Thryoid antibodies checked (Anti-TG, Anti-TPO).
I also get reactive hypo from sugar, although I have not done the GTT test.
Here's the results. There's no rise in BS but there is a big drop! What's goin on?
Fasting: 80 (65-99) Lookin good
1 hour: 106 (65-199) Everything's fine
2 hours: 44 (65-139) WTF
3 hours: 65 (65-109) Recovering
Blood pressure today was 100/60. Now I'm convinced all this is adrenal-related.
HAN, thanks for all your help and guidance, but guess what? I went in there today with a sound argument, plenty of research, and reasonable requests. I got told it was wrong, not necessary, etc. I got NONE of the tests I asked for. I'm f*cked for now.
