    Hey guys,

    I want to take this test tomorrow since I want to get the test results back as soon as possible. If you think I should just wait to ask my doctor on Monday just let me know. However, I figured enough of you have taken this test to answer the following questions:

    1. It seems like I should hold off on my levothyroxine until the end of the day instead of taking it in the morning. Let me know if I am wrong.
    2. Can I have Ribose or the Energy Revitalization System during the day? What about Fish oil or extra vitamin D I take. It seems like these may affect the test, but not sure.

    Thanks if you guys have asked the same questions before. Have a good night!

    Fish oil (EPA) can suppress cortisol levels.

    if there is something u think interferes with the test, i cant see how holding off for one day would hurt unless its an immediately life saving drug that cant be stopped.
    What sort of treatments will u be looking into if adrenal fatigue is found?
