    Lightbulb ALWAYS treat your adrenals first, before taking thyroid support!

    The adrenals and the thyroid are strongly connected to each other and their management cannot be separated. You MUST make sure you have assessed and treated your adrenals first before working on your thyroid! Treating your thyroid first will boost your metabolism and further fatigue your adrenals.

    People tend to mistake low adrenal reserves as low thyroid medication and keep increasing their thyroxine. Which increases the metabolism at first and makes them feel better but runs them down later on further stressing and burning their adrenals out.

    I found out when I started taking T3 and I just couldnt tolerate it at all....hopefully it helps someone.

    I've done the Saliva test which was quite helpful to be honest. What I am struggling is what works best to treat adrenals. Cortisol or extracts? Nobody has the exact answer it would appear.

    Which labs did you get your adrenals checked? I am interested in doing it again but not sure of the benefits.

    Hi Wilber

    What do you mean by adrenals? I have been struggling in terms of my thyroxine working for about 4 weeks then back to feeling rubbish! Could it be this?
