Since my cortisol levels have been very low in the morning for months and all the herbal adaptogens aren't working, my doc is going to start me on a low dose of HC. Since I'm allergic to all the fillers, it has to be compounded. I know some people have had bad experiences with HC, but I really hope this helps. If I can get my adrenals back in to shape, maybe my thyroid will follow.
I also found out I've been taking my sex hormone supplements at the wrong time of day. I've been taking it all at night (a mix of estrogen, testosterone, progesterone and dhea). My doc said I'm only supposed to take progesterone at night and the others in the morning. So maybe that's been a problem too. My recent hormone labs showed my estrogen and testosterone were still extremely low (not even in range).
