Can someone help read me Adrenal Saliva Test

I just got my adrenal Saliva Test results, but my doctor said my adrenals are fine.  I don't think they are fine and I have been trying to treat my Rt3 with t3 and I'm getting know where.  From what I have read you need strong adrenals in order to treat Rt3.  I have every symptom of Adrenal Fatigue.  I've had insomnia forever, and I can't tolerate noise or life in general.

Can someone tell me if my adrenals are alright or do I need to take medication?

Adrenal
8:00                 0.56                   0.27 – 1.18
12:00               0.22                   0.10 – 0.41
4:00        0.04                   0.05 – 0.27
10:00               0.09                   0.03 – 0.14

Thanks for any help

Jena

Your diurnal rhythm is ok, a little off as you are slightly lower in the late afternoon than at 10pm but one set of tests only shows that day, not a trend.

I had a saliva test done in January and it was much the same as this one that I just had done.  What other tests do I need done?

I also have all the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.  I can't fall asleep at night and even when I fall asleep I wake up a few hours later, I can't get up in the morning.  I have major depression and anxiety and many more symptoms.

Have you seen a doctor? What does the doctor say?
Are you on medications where there are side effects of insomnia?
Sometimes people just get insomnia... it is not a disease that I know of?

Are you being treated for your depression and anxiety?

I have seen about 12 doctors in the last year, but none of them know how to treat adrenal fatigue, and Rt3 dominance.  I'm not taking any medications.  I take a lot of vitamins but I had sleep problems before I started taking them.

My symptoms are hairloss, hair breakage, brain fog, achy, anxiety, depression, insomnia, can't focus, sinus problems, no energy, and can't loss weight.  

No I'm not being treated for anxiety or depression, I'm going to therapy and she wants me to take an anti-depressant.   But from all of the research I've been doing I feel my symptoms could be relieved if I could find a doctor to treat my adrenals and Rt3.  I don't want to resort to taking an anti-depressant.

I don't know what Rt3 is. I know what adrenal fatigue is, but I am not a proponent. I have adrenal insufficiency - and that is what I know.

How is your thyroid - your symptoms sound like thyroid and some other added things.

How are you doing now?  What is your latest diagnosis?

Have your T3 lab test done. Read article on the website www.*************************  Also, about.com and read article on hypothyroid. I believe the article was taken from a Oprah show. Great info. Good luck.
