Re: Got saliva Cortisol and DHEA results back... NOT LOOKING GOOD!

"Proper use of physiologic dosage of cortisone SUPPORTS the adrenals and doesn't atrophy them."

There is absolutely no medical basis for this comment. It's just something that gets spouted on thyroid message boards.

Even the promoters of "adrenal fatigue" warn about this in their texts and books.

I've seen some of the top hormone docs in the country, many of whom treat "adrenal fatigue" with HC and they all warn that suppression will occur. It is the lesser of two evils if you ABSOLUTELY need HC.

Studies have been done that clearly show suppression at low "physiological" doses. Not only will atrophy occur but the central-mediated ACTH response to stress will also be lessened (hence the need for so many people to "stress dose").

External cortisol blunts ACTH, thus adrenal stimulation is lessened, atrophy occurs.

Saying otherwise is like saying letting air out of a tire SUPPORTS the tire. It's crazy.

A simple Google search can show you all sorts of studies where physiological doses caused suppression.

Here's one:

"CONCLUSIONS: Although hydrocortisone treatment was associated with some improvement in symptoms of CFS, the degree of adrenal suppression precludes its practical use for CFS."

I'm glad you're doing better, but alot of these adrenal groups and thyroid message boards treat HC like it's mother's milk. I've disagreed with some of them and they just delete my posts- you can't trust some of these forums to provide any sort of accurate representation of what HC really does to most people who take it. A lot of people end up very ill or completely unable to stop taking it.
