  • I would suggest having serum TSH, Free T3, Free T4, and A.M. Cortisol labs done to begin with. If you'd like to post the results when you get them, I'd be happy to comment on them.Here are my symptoms:Skin rash and bad dandruffRLSanxiety (very bad)depressionADDFibromyalgiafatiguemoodyangrymultiple food allergiesinsulin resistance and hypoglycemiaany one thing can cause this many problems?

  • Well, to start with your A.M. Cortisol looks good, but then for the rest of the day it is low- this could indicate beginning stages of adrenal fatigue. DHEA is too low.What are the ranges for the TSH and T4? Is the T4 free or just straight T4?Here is what I have:From a blood test:TSH: 1.252T4: 5.9From a saliva test:Free Cortisol Rythm: Result: Range:8AM: 20 nM 13-24 nM11AM: 4 nM 5-10 nM4PM: 3 nM 3-8 nM11PM: 2 nM 1-4 nMCortisol Burden:Result: Range:29 23 - 42DHEA:Result: Range:2 ng/ml 3-10 ng/mlThanks for any help.
