    So yeah, I am pretty sure that in many cases the adrenal fatigue CAUSED the gut issue. In my research, I have found that adequate T4 and T3 thyroid, and adequate cortisol, are both necessary for proper digestion. So yeah, people trying to cure leaky gut, etc. may be trying treatment protocols that essentially end up trying to raise cortisol and ensure proper thyroid.

    In a lot of the readings I have been doing, it seems that low cortisol is a problem in soooo many ways it is ridiculous. without sufficient cortisol, T3 can't be absorbed sufficiently, making one hypothyroid. Its all a big feedback loop gone wrong in the body.

    I highly suggest reading this forum

    There is a lot about testosterone replacement/estrogen reduction etc. However, there is a lot about adrenal fatigue or what they simply call "cortisol insufficiency", and there is a ton of information about what low cortisol can do to your body.

    Here is a great post about a guy who has liver problems, thyroid problems, and low cortisol problems, and how to address it: (chilln's post, last on page)

    The light coloured stools are usually the result of undigested fats, which is consistent with your too high serum triglycerides.

    Poor digestion is definitely synonymous with too low cortisol, and often too low thyroid hormones T4 and T3 as well.

    The high triglycerides and too low cholesterol are consistent. They confirm that your liver isn't able to cope with producing sufficient LDL cholesterol to produce your hormones, and your liver metabolism is too slow to make the enzymes to eliminate the triglycerides from your system (and from your liver too. ie: "fatty liver").

    Our liver metablolic rate is limted by our overall metabolic rate, therefore your fatty liver spells too low overall metabolic rate, which definitely spells too low cortisol, and usually spells too low thyroid hormones T4 and T3 too.


    So you're right to suspect liver and gall bladder (your digestive system) but they are strongly dependent on sufficient cortisol, and thyroid hormones T4 and T3.

    Without sufficient cortisol and thyroid hormones T4 and T3 you won't have much success treating just the liver and gall bladder with specific supps / drugs.


    The closest I can get to a root cause is that your past combination of moderate to high alcohol consumption, plus online gamling, taxed your liver and cortisol enough to trash your digestion.

    Once your cortisol-production-line shut down, your body had to keep your T metabolism downregulated by using E2. This is explained here:


    What To Do ?

    a) Help your liver, temporarily

    Ordinarily we can recover an errant digestive system quickly with adequate cortisol (via pregnenolone, not HC) and adequate thryroid hormones T4 and T3 (via Armour Thyroid), but since your liver is highly likely to be operating at less-than-optimal capacity, therefore you and your medical professional adviser will probably need to help your liver recover in parallel to addressing your cortisol-production-line, and in parallel to addressing your thyroid hormones T4 and T3 - by supplementing with some SAMe (oral caps).

    b) Resuscitate your cortisol-production-line

    The typical way to restore a cortisol-production-line is to:
    a) (mandatory) address any sleep apnea
    b) (mandatory) minimize physical and mental stressors to suit your lifestyle (never to zero except for those who live on a tropical island)
    c) (mandatory) work with your medical professional adviser to trial some pregnenolone. Most try oral pregnenolone initially, but it either works too quickly, or not all all, and most have to switch to transdermal pregnenolone to ensure at least minimum absorption without serum "spikes".

    The pregnenolone will boost your neurotransmitters and will synthesize into progesterone and cortisol.

    The boost in cortisol will reduce your E2, which will improve your erection performance.
    This is explained here:

    c) Boost your thyroid hormones T4 and T3

    1a) Ensure adequate selenium and iodone and vitamin D, not to "overdrive" levels.
    1b) Monitor improvement in T4 -> T3 conversion, versus T4 -> reverse T3 conversion.

    2a) Ensure plenty of pregnenolone <-- citical
    2b) Confirm adequate cortisol (due to pregnenolone boost) <-- citical
    2c) Monitor improvement in T4 -> T3 conversion, versus T4 -> reverse T3 conversion.



    3a) Only if thyroid antibodies are low, then boost T4 if free T4 is too low - but only to the extent where the body will convert it into free T3 (not reverse T3)
    3b) Monitor improvement in T4 -> T3 conversion, versus T4 -> reverse T3 conversion.

    4a) Boost T3 directly to make up the remaining T3 needed to ensure optimum metabolism.
    4b) Monitor improvement in T4 -> T3 conversion, versus T4 -> reverse T3 conversion.

    d) Kill hunger cravings.

    But your excessive body fat percentage suggests will probably also require a seratonin boost approaching meal times, to reduce your food cravings.

    For this I suggest supplementing with Cytolean V2 while stocks last (product has been discontinued, but there are still lots of suppliers with stock on shelves).

    Our hunger cravings are suppressed by a short but strong burst of seratonin, and Cytolean V2 gives such short powerful bursts of seratonin.

    You're going to discover that when you eat less, your body needs to burn more fat, but genetic aging downregulates our thyroid hormone levels, which downregulates our metabolic rate, so eating small amounts of food provides more than adequate energy, and the glucose winds up being converted into body fat.

    It's ultra critical to kill off hunger when you're overweight, and when your thyroid is aged and is therefore operating in a downreuglated state.

    I doubt this is needed. Your root cause problem is pregnenolone and cortisol, the gall bladder is a downstream symptom.
