I went to see an integrative medicine GP today for some issues I've been having -- reactive hypoglycemia (though glucose isn't sub-normal, for whatever reason -- just rising, then dropping after meals), severe inability to handle stress, constant adrenaline rushes, dizziness and vertigo etc. An endo dismissed the symptoms because some tests came back normal (I was too unwell to complete half of them, though). She was expensive and a bit fruity. She seemed to think Zinc and B6 would fix all my problems. However, I tried to explain that a major issue is that I've become completely *intolerant* of all supplements, which just seem to exacerbate my appetite and reactive symptoms. Anyway, the appointment was really expensive and I wanted to get something out of it. She gave me forms for a bunch of tests (Pylouria levels etc., Zinc etc.) and said I could decide which tests I want to do, since they're all out-of-pocket. I pushed for a 24-hour saliva cortisol/DHEA test because I know there's a connection between cortisol and blood sugar/appetite control. She was happy to give me it, but it is a bit expensive. Would it be useful having that information on hand? My concern is that a doctor wouldn't take the results into account anyway, since I know most don't generally use the 24-hour test.
