Progesterone and adrenal fatigue/hypothyroidism
Hi Wray, I have been taking 25-35 mg Cortef for adrenal fatigue for 2-3 yrs, also take T3 (100 mcg) to correct Reverse T3 (thyroid resistance) problem which came into the picture because of low ferritin. The low ferritin is because of terribly heavy periods. I correct the low ferritin by getting iron infusions done to get my levels up.
Attempted to get an ablation done, didn't happen. An ultrasound discovered a couple small fibroids and Adenomyosis. Lab tests revealed low progesterone and mildly elevated estrogen. Found your website and immediately started progesterone cream (I had but not used for a while) at 200 per day divided doses. I received my Natpro and have used this for the last 24 hrs. Feeling quite fatigued and lethargic, along with some weight gain. Do you think I would be able to get to a high enough dose of progesterone to be able to wean off the Cortef (hydrocortisone) any thoughts? Any thoughts are very much appreciated.
