In tears over this because I just don’t know where to start! 😟

Amanda lewis,

Me too Amanda. There seems to be no help out there.I feel like I have been left to rot.

Christine Sweeney,

Hi can somebody please tell me if there is any Information for the help with getting a 24HR saliva cortisol test and how to interpret it when it’s done,my Dr only acknowledges the morning blood test,which I believe inadequate. Thank you.


We have more information about the test, which can be obtained privately, on our forum, which is the pkace to ask about this.


Yes several of us have taken the saliva test which is over the course of a day. Details in the resources bit of the forum. The labs that do the test offer some info about interpreting the results and there are several websites and forums about adrenals.


My feet are on the cliff’s edge. I feel so depressed and alone. Neither my doctor and/or the endo team are willing to help me get through this horrible continuous sickly thyroid gland who has Hashimotos and needs the kiss of life. Is there any body out there can throw me a life line with Liothyronine or Natural Desiccated Thyroid? I also need advice on how much I need to take. Amanda Lewis, me too. Why won’t the British government allow a general doctor prescribe T3 Liothyronine? The thing that gets to me the most is my hair. It’s the hair that makes a strong and powerful woman look/appear frail. Being told I look poorly and frail really kicks the boot hard into my illness. I can almost cope with the pain caused by my muscle spasms and joint aches. Horrible dry skin too… weight gain is also horrible, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. When us women were younger, fit and healthy , desirable, sexy too we were on top of the world. And now along comes a sickly thyroid that changes all that. I shall be so greatful for any advice on how to obtain T3, T4 and TSH. Please advise? I am relatively new to all this so please excuse any mistakes I have made writing this.
