Aldosterone resistance and progesterone

Hello,

I just started using progesterone and I've read that using amounts such as 100-2000 mg actually inhibits aldosterone and I'm really scared because I have low cortisol all throughout the day (I have adrenal fatigue. Which means I most likely have low aldosterone anyways.. so I'm not sure what to do.. do I continue using progesterone???

I'm also taking some sea salt and potassium for my adrenals....please if anyone could answer if really appreciate it....

Thank you.

Okay I read it but I'm still a bit confused and scared....Joy what do you think of the information on this site?
http://www.rt3-adrenals.org/aldosterone_and_renin.html

It suggests that progesterone may cause cortisol and aldosterone resistance and I have been feeling weak lately. I feel numbness in my arms, legs, hands and I'm currently taking 200mg progesterone cream....sorry for asking so many questions, I'm just not sure what to do anymore :(

Hi Rnaxand

If I remember correctly you are not using Natpro progesterone cream, that could be your problem. If I am correct you need to adjust the cream that you are using to equate to that of Natpro. You can find the info on Natpro on the order page.

Have you given the cream a chance to work? Many people expect overnight fixes which will never happen, it takes 2-6 months of the correct use of progesterone. The body goes through ups and down during this adjustment.
