    Malabsorption due to low adrenal reserves?

    It appears that long term adrenal fatigue can cause malabsorption making people celiac or allergic to other food items as well.

    Gluten and milk seems to be the quite common offenders. Anyone had any experience in that or found out later on they are allergic?

    Hi @alanc

    I have a personal experience with this. Though my antibody tests have always come as negative, I have gone on diet anyway.

    I have felt a lot better when started avoiding wheat, rice etc etc. The reason to go on diet was hair mineral analysis and Igg food reaction test.

    Dr. Wilson has written a very good article on food allergies due to low adrenal reserves

    Cheers mike. My experience is probably pretty standard to most in the UK with hypometabolism type symptoms. Diagnosed with ME by the GP, told the only option was antidepressants so started my own research and pestering the Docs for blood tests etc. Originally focussed on thyroid but now sure that my low cortisol (possibly all my adrenal steroids) is to blame. Morning cortisol test shows 298nmol (range 280 - 720) and symptoms are classic of low cortisol with some addisonian type crashes in the past.

    Next step is to get my own saliva stress index done, pester GP for complete steroid profile and also a short synacthen test (as per the NHS guidelines - http://www.cks.nhs.uk/addisons_disea...ions#449877007 - see 3/4 down the page

    "Excluding adrenal insufficiency

    Expert opinion varies regarding the serum cortisol level at which adrenal insufficiency can be excluded.

    The Addison's Clinical Advisory Panel suggest that adrenal insufficiency is unlikely if the 89 am serum cortisol level is more than 400 nanomol/L and that further testing should be undertaken for people with a serum cortisol level of 100400 nanomol/L [Wass et al, 2009]. Other experts suggest a cut-off value of around 500 nanomol/L [Arlt and Allolio, 2003; Wallace et al, 2009].

    Taking this information and the opinion of expert reviewers into account, CKS recommends considering referral or seeking specialist advice if the serum cortisol level is 100500 nanomol/L.

    The Addison's Clinical Advisory Panel state that if a person is unwell, the diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency cannot be excluded by a serum cortisol level [Wass et al, 2009]. CKS therefore recommends seeking specialist advice in this situation."

    Sorry do you mind me asking why did you take steroids before? Any particular reason?

    Have a look on Dr. Wilson's presentation I've put on in Videos section. There is a lot connected between lymes and adrenals which may be the issue in some people.
