    What is your health problem?
    Why do not you look at my whole list, post #44
    Jan's BloodTest April13/2007

    That list cost $3500.00
    My Medicare insurance paid it all except for $6.
    Picture of a bill can be seen here:
    Bill for my blood test at Quest

    I do not know individual prices.

    Medicare is for 65 and older and while on long term disability (I think), also while on Welfare.

    It does not have to be Medicare other insurances cover the expenses also, mos likely even better.
    Before I was 65 I had BC/BS comprehensive, got covered.
    Mistake people do, including my co-workers, including some VP's in my place, the try to save on insurance.
    I always went for insurance that covered least, cost most and gave no restictions.

    get the (right) tests, then we can talk and have a shot at some resemblance of progress.

    Stay away from saliva tests, any saliva tests.

    Yeah, I've noticed they are useless for most hormones. But what about for cortisol rhythm?

    There is a lots of confusing informations on Adrenal Fatigue.
    My bottom line.

    Use Cortef.
    Use it when you feel it helps.
    When it helps, go up to 20mg/day dose
    Split the dose 2 or 3 ways
    Use it at about 7AM, Noon, 5PM
    7AM dose may be little larger.
    If it helps but still have misgivings, may go up to 30mg/day

    In the mean time check Aldosterone, if low use some Florinef.

    Beyond that, hopefully we do not need to go there.

    Note, no Cortisol testing.

    When on above regime, tried to wean off and crashed.
    Go back to it, stay on it another year or two before making another attempt.
