Adrenal function interfers with thyriod meds?

I recently posted asking why my need for thyroid med (Armour Thyroid) was up over 1,000 mgs. a day, and diagnosed with severe thyroid resistance. I found something out after that, and am wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I have a multi-glandular disorder that causes several glands to be hypo. I noticed that I was having symptoms with my adrenals like my mother who had Addison's. After I began treatment for my adrenals this week my need for thyroid meds dropped drastically. I had read in a scientific article lately where the adrenals help process thyroid hormones. So adrenal function seems to affect thyroid function. Has anyone else experienced a need for a large dose of thyroid medication, and have it drop after adrenal treatment? Thanks, Cindi.
