Re: Has my adrenal fatigue turned into hypothyroidism as well?

I don't get hypoglycemic, unless I've been eating a lot of junk for a while. I try not to do that. Eating protein and some fat every few hours will help keep your blood Sugar stable, peanut butter, cheese, hard boiled eggs, etc.

Waking up in the middle of the night can be high cortisol or the hypoglycemia. You might want to try having a high protein snack before bed. Hawthorne really help my pounding heart, you might want to give it a try before you go to bed at night. Follow the directions on the label. I made the mistake once taking a double dose and ended up nauseous, clammy and light headed. You can also try drinking some water with salt (unprocessed) or eating a salty snack like cheese before bed too. A hardboiled egg and some cheddar cheese would make a good snack to help keep you blood Sugar stable.

With adrenal fatigue, you're going to over react to all kinds of stimulus. That's just the way it is. Some calming herbs to try: kava, chamomile, valerian, hops and passion flower.

Once you get the results back from your saliva test, you'll have a better idea as to how severe your AF is and whether OTC stuff like isocort will help or if you need rx hydrocortisone. If your doctor refuses to treat your AF (if it is severe enough to warrant a rx) you can get the 1% hydrocortison cream and use that instead. You'll probably use 1/4 tesp at a time. The NaturalThyroidHormoneADRENAL users group on yahoo have some wonderful mods that can walk you through all this and help you set up a treatment plan.
