I've been chelating to remove heavy metals for 9 months now (Mercury and Aluminum mostly, very high both). Recently I read about AF and many symptoms seem to match with mine, actually so accurately that I started thinking maybe AF is part of the reason I've felt so chronically crappy over the past years.
So I ordered several tests while also testing my temperature everyday for 2 weeks now. The temperature tests indicate that my basal and average temps are lower than optimal (thyroid maybe) and they also have a wide daily variation which may indicate that AF is also involved.
My lab tests came back like this:
Total T3: 93.5
Total T4: 9.59
24 hour urine cortisol: 56.6
Everything looks in range, even cortisol. Can AF still be in place even though the test looks "normal"? For that matter, what is the optimal cortisol level in a 24 hour urine test?
I need to add as well that I've been using Iodine and L-Thyrosine for a couple of months now, without knowing about AF but just to help me to improve energy and moods (which they had). I did stop the Iodine 2 weeks before the test though, but I didn't stop the L-Thyrosine.
Finally, would it be safe to take a cortisol supp based on the results I have so far? (I'm thinking Isocort for its safety).
